Withdraws his


mud bog appeal
JOELADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR I reporter@bakercountypress.com
Three-and-a-half hours before county commissioners were set
to consider Troy McCullough's appeal for a mud bogging pit in the
southern county August 25, the planning department received this
fax: "Troy McCullough withdraw appeal."
The message was dated and signed by Mr. McCullough but con-
tained no further information, said Planning Director Ed Preston.
"I don't want to even say anything right now. Thank you," said Mr.
McCullough before hanging up when called for comment.
The appeal and Mr. McCullough's initial request for a temporary
permit to operate the mud bog on 20 acres of a 76-acre tract south
of Mud Lake Road sparked tremendous opposition from neighboring
residents.
Commissioners joined Mr. Preston Tuesday evening at the school
board chambers where the meeting was supposed to be held to notify
the public the appeal had been withdrawn.
"I'm glad it's over," Commissioner Mark Hartley told a small group
that showed up about 6:00 pm.

Reserves to balance budget


County will dip out $1 million
JOELADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com


The Baker County Commission
resigned to use more than $1 mil-
lion from its $8 million reserves to
balance the coming year's spending
plan with estimated revenues.
That decision was made the
evening of August 20 during the
board's second budget workshop,
when commissioners also agreed
to spare the Council on Aging from
the budget axe.
Previous budget drafts eliminat-
ed the roughly $1o9,ooo allocation
given to the council last year.
"I think a zero balance is ridicu-
lous," said Commissioner Gordon
Crews; a sentiment
shared by all the com-
missioners. is c"r""

"Give them the

them not to expect as
much next year," Mr.
Crews said to County
Manager Joe Cone
and board chairman
Mike Griffis, who
were expected to con-

matter.

House

arrests a

solution?
JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
With more than half of all
property taxes levied by the
county expected to pay for
jail expenses this year, Baker
County Commissioners began
discussing last week expand-
ing the use of house arrest as an
alternative to incarceration to
save thousands of dollars.
"There may be some people
in jail that could be on house ar-
rest for less money," said Com-
missioner Mike Griffis during
the board's second budget
workshop this month August
20.
What's pushing the potential
shift in resources is that it's $70
cheaper per day to buy an elec-
tronic ankle bracelet to monitor
defendants' whereabouts than
to house him or her at the new
sheriffs complex jail.
"I think there's opportunity
for substantial savings," County
Judge Joey Williams told the
commission.
Anecdotally, he estimated
that of 120 local inmates at the
newj ail, about a dozen would be
"no brainers" for house arrest.

cal inmates at the facility over

Seizure caused accident...

A seizure while driving was report-
edly what caused Jimmy Laura- |"'..=
more, 30, of Macclenny to veer off
the south bound lanes of S. 6th St.
about 7:45 the evening of August
20. His 1999 Chevrolet pickup,
shown at right, drifted over the
sidewalk and into the KFC parking .
lot where it struck the front end
of Monalisa Walker's parked 1997
Chevrolet SUV. The truck then hit
a small tree before coming to rest
against a concrete wall supporting
a utility pole guide wire. Mr. Lau-
ramore suffered minor injuries and
his pickup about $5000 in damage.
Damage to Ms. Walker's vehicle
was estimated at $2000. Nobody
was charged, said FHP spokesman
Bill Leeper.


Two years fo:

((From page 1
The defendant's criminal record includes a prior
arrest for sale of a controlled substance.
In other cases:
Daniel Sparkman got 90 days in county jail
after he admitted to violating probation in a 2005
case involving unemployment compensation fraud.
Raymond Strickland was ordered to jail 6o days and
placed on house arrest one year following release
after admitting he violated probation on an earlier
drug charge.
Joshua Giddens was given a nine-month jail
sentence and his probation was revoked in a case
earlier this year involving obtaining prescription
drugs by fraud. He admitted August 24 to violating
probation.
Linda Sue Alexander was ordered to house ar-
rest for two years after she admitted to a probation
violation in four grand theft cases dating back two
years. She was also ordered to pay $528 restitution
to a victim.
A six-month house arrest was ordered in the
case of Joshua Bradley, who violated probation for
fleeing police and driving on a suspended or revoked
license.
Judge Nilon ordered a five-year sex offender
probation with GPS tracking for Louis Barton in


r molesting
return for a no contest plea to burglary with assault
or battery and lewd or lascivious exhibition. He was
adjudicated guilty.
Sherrie Lepeak will be on drug offender proba-
tion two years after pleading no contest to sale of
a controlled substance. Adjudication of guilt was
withheld.
David Ward will pen apology letters to three
county deputies and be on a one-year administra-
tive probation after pleading to resistance without
violence and disorderly intoxication.
Amanda Roberts admitted to violating proba-
tion for credit card fraud and theft, and will be on
house arrest six months following completion of a
six-month jail sentence.
An 18-month drug offender probation was or-
dered for Rodrick Roberts following his plea to sale
of a counterfeit controlled substance. Judge Nilon
withheld adjudication of guilt and ordered Mr. Rob-
erts to pay a $270 investigative cost.
Probation for Terry Dugger in a 1999 battery
case was modified to 50o hours of community service
plus a $250 fine after he admitted to violating.
Capias warrants were issued for the arrest of two
defendants who failed to appear in court: Jeremiah
Wexler on drug and theft charges, and Bessie Man-
ley for sale and possession of drugs.


62-year-old is arrested for having crack


The driver of a pickup truck
that was blocking the north lane
on Ivy St. in Macclenny the eve-
ning of August 19 ended up jailed
for possession of cocaine.
Investigator Michael Hauge of
the sheriff's department said he
questioned the driver, 62-year-
old Judith Calhoun of Macclen-
ny, after spotting the truck about
6:20 while on routine patrol. He
noted that Ms. Calhoun acted
nervous when questioned, and
that she gave him permission to
search the truck.
The investigator found a blue
baggie with white powder inside
that tested positive for cocaine.
Shortly after, Investigator
Erik Deloach, who was also at


the scene, saw Ms. Calhoun spit
out a white substance into the
truck bed while speaking with
an unnamed passenger. She spit
several other pieces onto the
ground. All tested positive for
crack cocaine.
She was booked at county jail
after being medically cleared at
Fraser Hospital.
In other cases, a deputy found
a small amount of marijuana but
no suspect after briefly chasing a
vehicle that had turned around
on US 90 short of a DUI inspec-
tion point.
Deputy Earl Lord was sta-
tioned down the road from the
inspection watching for u-turn-
ing vehicles. He spotted the 2001


Mitsubishi about 9:15 pm on Au-
gust 21 and chased it as it turned
north on CR 250A, then into a
vacant lot. The driver fled on foot
into a wooded area.
A canine team from nearby
Baker Correctional trailed the
scent to a residence on Leonard
Ford Rd., where police were told
the man used a telephone to sum-
mon a ride.
Scott Ruise, 30, of Glen St.
Mary was jailed for driving on a
license suspended six times as an
habitual offender.
He was stopped on Ray Phil-
lips Rd. in Macclenny by Deputy
Randy Davis late on August 17
because of a faulty tail light on
the GMC truck he was driving.

the morning."
"My favorite subject is read-
ing," added John Mason, grasping
his new notebooks and looking
impatient.
"He really enjoys science proj-
ects, too," said his mother. "He's
been looking forward to coming
back to school."
Three other siblings Colton,
Chance and Makayla Taylor
- found seats with their mom,
Misty Tolin, in the principal's of-
fice while they waited for the 8:35
bell to ring. Ms. Tolin was there to
meet Colton's teacher.
"I like school because you get
to learn so much," said the young
boy.
"The kids aren't usually this
quiet," Ms. Tolin said. "I think
they're excited and a little nervous
about starting the new school year.
Being a single mother, raising
three kids and making sure they
get to school each morning with
everything they need is tough, but
you do what you have to."
Marisol Valenciaga waited out-
side the principal's office with her
daughter, 7-year-old Elizabeth.
Elizabeth, entering the sec-
ond grade, said she enjoyed her
summer. She spent a lot of time
swimming at the YMCA and read-
ing fairy tales, her favorite type of
story. She's excited to be coming


back to school, however.
"School is a happy, fun place,"
she said.
Administrative assistants and
even Principal LouAnn Williams
were busy in the office helping
guide the crowd to destinations
and answering constant ques-
tions.
In the foyer, librarian Rhonda
Hartley and her assistant Mad-
eline Hodges brightly greeted
parents and hugged children they
recognized returning to school.
"I'm seven now," one student
told Ms. Hartley, proudly.
"Why, you are practically grown
up, aren't you?" Ms. Hartley re-
plied, giving the child a big smile.
The ladies work at a small sta-
tion in the foyer set up to supply
incoming students with school
planners, a necessary tool that
helps parents communicate with
teachers.
In Robin Mitchell's class, first
graders sat at their assigned desks
following the morning bell. Nearby
cubbies brimmed with backpacks
and computers waited to be used.
Highly visible on each desk was
a child's name along with a lami-
nated chart and ruler, the ABC's,
diagrams of the left and right
hands and a loo-block square to
help with counting. New crayons
were also in the desks for art proj-
ects.


The kids intentlypracticed their
names on special writing forms.
"When the 9:oo bell rings, we'll
start right in with phonics, then go
on to math and reading," said Ms.
Mitchell. "Until then, they can do
something creative."
"Marvelous. You can add some
clouds and a sun and a rainbow
too, if you want," said Ms. Mitch-
ell.
One parent dropped in to dis-
cuss her son's absence due to
upcoming surgery soon after the
school year begins.
"You just let me know what
he needs," said Ms. Mitchell. "If I
need to, I can come to the home
for his reading instruction. It's im-
portant he not get behind right at
the start of the year."
School Superintendent Sherrie
Raulerson made an appearance at
Macclenny Elementary on Mon-
day morning, too.
"I've already been to several
schools this morning," she said.
"I think it's important to visit each
one, especially on the first day, as a
way to say welcome back to teach-
ers, students and parents.
"It's fulfilling to witness the ex-
citement of the first day of the new
year, when everyone is enthusias-
tic about setting new goals. I think
this will be the best year ever for
Baker County schools."


House arrests to cut jail cost?


((From page 1
the course of a year will cost the
county roughly $306,000, while
keeping the same number on
house arrest even after adding
the cost of a $45,ooo-a-year case
manager would be 68 percent
cheaper at $96,000.
The cost savings increases to
76 percent if that manager could
supervise 20 defendants at any
given time.
Judge Williams also stressed
the importance of such case man-
agers to find suitable candidates
for the program, monitor their
movements and ensure they're
following other court mandates
like drug testing.
'"The monitor isn't a force field,
it's a tool," he said.
The county judge and commis-
sioners agreed that defendants


posing a low public safety risk,
particularly cases involving mis-
demeanor crimes, would be ideal
candidates for the program.
"We would in no way put the
public's safetyin jeopardy to save
some money," Commissioner
Gordon Crews clarified. "If you
even have to think about it, send
them to jail."


House arrest is used on a
case-by-case basis now as an
alternative to pre-trial and post-
sentencing incarceration, but it's
not free or available to the poor
and indigent.
"You can find out soon if it's
working, and if its not, pull out,"
said Judge Williams.

< "He's a good kid," said Rick
Mallett of Glen St. Mary. "He
does dumb things like all of us
have, but you learn from your
mistakes. He's learned a valuable
lesson here."
Adam was brought in for
questioning August 21 after po-
lice linked about 20 garbage bags
of euthanized dogs, puppies and
cats dumped in the Cummer Pas-
ture hunting camp near SR 121
and Mud Lake Road to a Jack-
sonville veterinarian, who for
the last 20 years had contracted
with Rick Mallett to periodically
dispose of remains.
"In the first two or three sen-
tences, he [Adam] said, 'I know
what I did was illegal,'" sheriffs
investigator Chuck Brannan said
at a press conference following
the arrest.
Adam's father said his son
took over the disposal contract
after he was laid off and a con-
struction job didn't pan out. For
the last five months Adam was
paid $15o every two weeks to
transport the remains to the Trail
Ridge landfill in Baldwin.
According to police, Adam was

the winning bid this month and
commissioners approved the sale
during their regular meeting Au-
gust 17.
Mr. Thrift's bid was $14,000
more than the next highest of the
six responding bidders.
"It seems like a reasonable of-
fer to me and we can rid ourselves
of that problem," said County
Manager Joe Cone.
The land presented an in-
surance liability for the county
because its policy won't cover
out-of-state property. The litter-
strewn site had also been used
for dumping.
Last week, the board also con-
cluded it would not give employee
raises, regardless of whether the
county's constitutional officers
decide otherwise.
The move could've added
another $150,000 to the dip-in
reserves, said Finance Director
Debbie Perryman.
"I want the county employees
to have raises, but I don't think
it's the right time," said Commis-
sioner Alex Robinson.
Commissioner Mark Hartley
said he hoped the decision would
be viewed in light of the county's
generosity in years past, cover-
ing insurance increases as well as
giving raises.
When compared to this year's
budget, the proposed $33.6-mil-
lion spending plan for 2009-10
grew by $1.7 million and includes
$6.2 million in property tax rev-
enues, or $6oo,ooo more than
last year.
The proposed property tax
rate, $7.86 per $1ooo of taxable
value, means a home valued at
$150,000 with a $50,000 ex-
emption would pay about $786
in county taxes. Other govern-
ment agencies like schools and
Macclenny, for those inside the
city limits, are extra.
Though the tax rate is higher
than last year's 7.14 millage (or
property tax) rate, it's still much
lower than the 8.96 millage that
was maintained through the first
half of the last decade.
The rate dropped from 8.45 in
2006-07 to 7.43 a year later.
And the proposed rate of
$7.86 is also significantly lower
than Bradford County's $9.17
and Union County's 10.5.
The board will hold two public
hearings to finalize the tax rate

ing $20 for gas and keeping $50
for himself. His share increased
to $80 by dumping the animals
in the woods, said Sheriff Joey
Dobson.
"Adam was just trying to save
a dollar," he explained. "He de-
cided he wasn't going to use the
Trail Ridge landfill anymore,
that he was going to find a place
to dump these dogs. What we
found yesterday was the last of
the dumping he had done ... We
found there were four other times
he has dumped."
Ray Stafford of Mclver Street
was one of three men that discov-
ered the animal's frozen remains
while in the area August 20.
"They hadn't been there long
because it was hot," Mr. Stafford
said the next day, adding the odor
of decomposition wasn't yet in
the air. "They were cold, not like
dead cold, like ice cold. They had
to be put out the night before."
Adam Mallet, a resident of
Redwood Lane in Macclenny,
faces five counts of illegal dump-
ing and five counts trespassing.
He posted the $5000 bond and is
now back home.
"He's doing as well as can be
expected," said Rick Mallett.
"He's just embarrassed. He made
a bad judgement call. That's all."
The 52-year-old father who


)od kid'

moved to Baker County in 1984
said the media attention that fol-
lowed his son's arrest was sensa-
tionalized.
"It's extremely unfortunate all
the talk in the news and the sen-
sationalism of it," he said. "It's
been blown so out of proportion.
He's just a kid that was trying to
pocket some extra money and
these people are going complete-
ly off the emotion of it."
A news report stating the dogs
were thrown out like garbage was
particularly stinging.
"If he had done what he was
supposed to do, they would have
been thrown in with the garbage
... At the zoo, when an animal
dies, that's where they go," Rick
Mallett said.


Neglect arrest after child is found on street

Witness William Lloyd found
the toddler walking barefoot just

Dr. because she and her mother
frequented Richard's Meat Mar-
ket where he is employed.
The child's mother, 35-year-
old Amy Burks, was located
shortly after and said the baby
had several times left the resi-
dence through a dog door. She

TOWN OF GLEN


Will n(

As part of
Aware of the possibility that
it could jeopardize its bid for a
$6oo,ooo federal grant to bring
a water system to the north town,
the Glen St. Mary Town Council
on August 18 nonetheless decid-
ed not to commit surplus funds
to the project.
The five-member board made
the decision during a workshop
that evening following its regular
monthly meeting. Mayor Juanice
Padgett and Councilman Woody
Crews dissented, arguing that
pledging $1oo,ooo from the
town's reserves bolsters Glen's
chances of securing the CDBG
(Community Development Block
Grant) funds from the US De-
partment of Housing and Urban
Development.
The town lost out on a similar
grant last year, finishing in the
middle of the pack of Florida cit-
ies and counties seeking money
for public projects. Glen already
has a water system serving neigh-
borhoods south of US 90.
The catch-point mentioned by
council members during nearly
an hour of discussion that eve-
ning is if money is committed, ei-
ther borrowed or from reserves,
the town has to use it. On the flip-
side, the more funds pledged, the
higher Glen would score in the
selection process.
"You won't get the grant with-
out pledging some money from
us," reasoned Mr. Crews. "I don't
mind taking $1oo,ooo from re-
serves, but I don't want to borrow
it."
Glen St. Mary has $220,000
in a reserve account that has


At pledge

application f
been dwindling in recent years,
largely due to utility projects and
reduced income from other tradi-
tional sources like utility fees and
revenue sharing. The town does
not levy property taxes.
Councilman Perry Hays rea-
soned that withholding either
reserve or borrowed money from
the water project was risky and
that he and fellow members like-
ly will regret not doing so if Glen
again loses out on grant funding.
"I think we should just go for
the $6oo,ooo [grant] and pray,"
suggested Mr. Hays, who is also a
minister, drawing chuckles from
other board members. Council-
men Jack Reneau and Dickie
Foster concurred.
Councilman Foster, a plumb-
ing contractor, believes chances
are good that the water project
bids will come in under the engi-
neers' estimates. Contractors are
hungry for work and the industry
is witnessing much lower bidding
levels than when the economy
was humming a few years ago, he
explained.
The total project estimate is
$764,000, and the council's strat-
egy for now is to await contractor
bids before deciding to commit
either surplus or borrowed mon-
ey to make up the difference over
the $600,000 grant.
Susan Armstrong of Jordan
and Associates, the town's grant
consultant, said earlier in the
meeting Glen should know by
late December whether it made
the cut and will get the money.
The pre-engineering phase
is already complete, so the next

step would be calling for bids.
In other business, the council:
Adopted an ordinance forgiv-
ing $2750 in impact fees for new
construction until the economy
improves. The town will still as-
sess $1500 per new home for the
school district.
Authorized use of town em-
ployees and equipment to mow

Ave. The former site is in foreclo-

Glen will charge a flat $1oo
minimum fee for such work, plus
$1oo an hour for the second and
subsequent hours. Complaints


have been received from neigh-
bors in both cases.
Agreed to sell a surplus pick-
up truck for the high bid of $601.

hensive Community Services

velopmentally disabled adults.

a $750 donation to CCS in next
year's slimmed down budget.

Liens coming on homes

with overgrown grass
O NI ADDn INGTON does so itself and bills the owner


NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com


Future owners of about eight
foreclosed Macclenny houses
may have to fork over hundreds
of dollars in grass mowing charg-
es in addition to the price of the
property.
Joy Chapman of city code
enforcement said at the end of
September, when she expects the
growth to cease, she will place
liens on the foreclosed properties
for the $1oo-a-month mowing
fee.
"I know people would like it to
be more, but our guys do the sides
of roads and other stuff, too,"
said Ms. Chapman. "It grows up
pretty high in a month, but hope-
fully by the end of September we
can stop doing it."
Overgrown grass is a common
problem during this time of year
and one that's only gotten worse
in the wake of a collapsing hous-
ing market.
Normally, neighbors begin
complaining and property own-
ers are given a few chances to ar-
range for mowing before the city


$100 a hour.
"One lot takes about that long
to do," she said. "We charge that
amount because we don't want
people to want us to do their
yard."
But with foreclosed homes,
there's often nobody at the ad-
dress to bill.
"Most of the time, once is
enough [to compel compliance],"
Ms. Chapman said. "But when
people walk away, they don't
care; they have no vested interest
in the property anymore."
In those cases, liens are place
on the property.
The price to taxpayers is mini-
mal, however; since prison labor
is often used with city equip-
ment.
The Macclenny City Com-
mission recently approved an
ordinance requiring mortgage
holders to register with the city
when filing for foreclosure. Ms.
Chapman also makes trips to the
courthouse for updates on fore-
closed properties.
"But by then it's already so
overgrown and we've had to mow
it anyway," she said.


Road repaving grant
Residents on the narrow Mud Lake Road in the south county should
have a wider, freshly paved thoroughfare by this time next year.
The Florida Department of Transportation notified county officials
earlier this month about the availability of $515,870 in leftover funds
from a state small county road assistance programs.
The money will be used to resurface Mud Lake Road and Woodlawn
Road, the shoulders of which are crumbling in a number of areas.
That was welcome news for Mud Lake Road resident Danny Burger
and his trailer, which he said usually rides off the street.
"If I had a dually axel truck, that means hogging a lane or running
off the asphalt," he said.
County Manager Joe Cone said he'd solicit quotes for the engineer-
ing and permitting work on both projects from firms already under
contract for similar jobs on North Lowder Street and CR 229 South.
The move will bypass the usual process that calls for a bid adver-
tisement, scoring of bids by a committee of county officials and then
interviewing representatives from the top firms before negotiating a
contract with the winner.
"It'll speed them up," he said of the projects.

Govt. at


all levels


IMPRESSIONS
Jim McGauley
Not to play the role of Doom-
sayer, but unless and until the
recession subsides, government
at all levels should brace for more
cuts.
More importantly, everyday
people like you and me should
brace for doing more with less
when it comes to the things gov-
ernment has grown to provide
during our lifetimes. The things
we depend on government lo-
cal, state and federal to do for
us has grown exponentially in
recent decades, if you haven't
noticed.
This week the Baker County
Commission decided to reach
into reserves to balance an esti-
mated million dollar shortfall in
its $33 million budget for next
year. The board earlier acted as
if it would not do that, but faced
with realities and an approaching
deadline it decided to take what
looks like the easiest and for
now the least painful route.
The Council on Aging gets
back the $109,oo000 the commis-
sion considered taking away next
fiscal year. No new people will
be hired and no one under the
board's supervision is getting
raises.
What happens outside that
realm most notably the con-
stitutional officers is up to the
other elected officials. Any of
them who give raises next fiscal
year, or accept raises for them-
selves, must be living in caves.
The big elephant in the living
room, so to speak, is the sheriffs
department which, if the immi-
gration prisoners don't start ar-
riving soon at the new jail, could
be in serious jeopardy budget-
wise. The payroll has ballooned
in recent months in anticipation
of the 400 or so ICE [Immigra-
tion and Customs Enforcement]
inmates anticipated weeks ago,
but who have yet to arrive. The
first are expected to show up late
this month.
Many BCSO employees are
getting generous raises in this
recession year, and those are also
predicated on a steady flow of
immigration prisoners. If every-
thing goes according to plan, it'll
work out. Ifnot, it's a disaster not
just for the department but for
Baker County taxpayers.
Right now, we're depending
on ICE, a federal agency that
refused to issue a guarantee, in-
sisting that sufficient numbers of
prisoners will fill the beds.
The Baker County school
district, which gobbles up a $55
million budget this year, is heav-
ily dependent on state funding,
which in turn is heavily subsi-


dized by federal stimulus money.
The same will probably be true
next year, but after that who
knows?
What Tallahassee can expect
is a continued decline in reve-
nues since Florida is very depen-
dent on money generated by the
business climate and has no state
income tax.
As for the federal govern-
ment, you'll have to excuse me.
I have no faith that Washington
can control spending, which we
didn't believe could get more out
of hand than it did under Mr.
Bush. It has under Mr. Hope and
Change, and early this week the
government revised upward its
estimate for the deficit ten years
from now.
It's now at $50 gazillion. Since
government estimates on costs
are traditionally underestimated


and performance of government
agencies greatly overestimated,
the deficit will probably keep ris-
ing to a number we've never even
invented yet.
Let's try for $50o quadbamboo-
zlezillion.
Funding laws across the
spectrum of government should
have, well, "governors" attached
to them by law. If the economy
shrinks, spending shrinks by
whatever percentage plus 5
percent. That way, those of us
in private business, people who
actually have to control expenses
and make payrolls, then pay our
taxes, would have some assur-
ance that others who are sup-
posed to be looking out for the
public good are doing the same
- and more.
If not, where are they going to
get the money?

get your game face on.
I have been a teacher for a long

of school ends after they graduate.

same thing.

most of the teachers I know have
the same problem.
When I was a kid it was a
mixture of anxiety and excite-
ment. Would I like my new class?
Would I know anybody? Would I
like them? Would I be totally lost
or would I be able get to where I
was going? Would I miss my bus?
What would my mom pack in my
lunch?
Those were always important
considerations. Come to think of

According to the Web site
Environment News Service, the
World Health Organization on
June 11 declared a global pan-
demic of the HiN1 swine flu and
as of this week at least 1799 peo-
ple have died.
Years ago, I read with fascina-
tion an article in Scientific Ameri-
can magazine about the nature of
influenza. This particular article
focused on ducks.
I was startled to learn the vi-
rus lives, mutates and travels in
ducks. The ducks may be sick-
ened or simply act as a host, car-
rying the virus and passing it on
to humans who come into contact
with them.
I didn't quite understand
how ducks, which I typically
saw swimming on ponds or fly-
ing across the sky well out of my
reach, could be the cause of the
spread of flu.
But wild ducks are migratory
and capable of carrying a virus
to far-flung locations. It's the
duck hunters who become the
unintentional vector of transfer
for the illness. Since the virus
can be spread through contact
with feces, blood, saliva and sur-
faces, they pick it up handling the
ducks they shoot. After becoming
infected, hunters then spread it
to family and friends who go on
to spread it to more family and
friends.
HiN1 is actually a sub-strain
also known as a "novel strain" of
an earlier strain of Swine Flu that
occurred in 1976. At that time an


Army recruit stationed at Fort
Dix, New Jersey became sick with
flu-like symptoms and died a day
later. His illness was identified as
Swine Flu and determined to be
related to an earlier strain that
killed hundreds of thousands of
people in 1918.
Not only do humans pick up
flu virus from animals, but vice
versa. Animals get sick from be-
ing exposed to humans carrying
the virus as well.
A strain of flu that gets passed
back and forth among several dif-
ferent avian (bird) or mammalian
(animal/human) hosts can even-
tually result in an entirely new
strain. HiN1 is such a strain and
contains genetic remnants from
pigs, humans and birds.
As of August 21, the first case
of swine flu not found in humans
or pigs was reported. In Santiago,
Chile, there was an outbreak of
swine flu among commercially
raised turkeys and likely spread
by human contact. However, the
infected turkeys did not die. They
recovered and were soon back to
normal.
A large portion of the human
population has immunity from
flu strains that have been circu-
lating for decades. There hasn't
been an opportunity for immu-
nity to build up in the population
against HiN1 and this is what has
the World Health Organization
and the Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention worried.
The swine flu virus isn't neces-
sarily more dangerous then other


flu viruses. But, because of the
low level of immunity, it could
infect a much larger portion of
the population than what we are
accustomed to, thereby increas-
ing the number of deaths.
Of the HiN1 virus, secretary
of Health and Human Services
Kathleen Sebelius has said "this
isn't the flu that we're used to."
The CDC has initiated the
HiN1 Vaccine Program at a cost
of $2 billion and five weeks are
necessary to implement the pro-
gram effectively. The CDC recom-
mends people begin getting their
vaccination against swine flu
in early October. It will require
two doses of vaccine three weeks
apart. Then it will take two more
weeks before the vaccine takes
full effect in the immune system.
The CDC also says there is evi-
dence that this type of swine flu
is not so much airborne through
sneezing and coughing, but
predominately spread through
contact. Frequent hand washing
and not touching the eyes, nose
or mouth cannot be stressed
enough.


it, they still are.
Teachers always wonder what
kind of hand the guidance de-
partment will deal them. Are they
good kids or are they trouble-
some? Who knows until they're
sitting in front of you?
Will I know anybody and will
I like them? That can be a double
edged sword. Today I knew quite
a few of the students in my teach-
er cadet class and liked them a
lot. That made the whole experi-
ence even nicer because I looked
out on friendly faces.
I have, over my 27-year ca-
reer, looked at my class rolls and
thought, "Oh no, is it too late for
me to run off and join the circus?"
In the end I'd change my mind.
What was the point of running
off to the circus when it sits inside
my classroom?
We have a whole crop of new
teachers this year at the high
school, and I'm certain that they
are still trying to find their way
around our large campus. If you
haven't been on the Baker County
High campus it seems to stretch
into another time zone when you
have to get from one side to the
other. I ran into a few teachers
looking a little confused and dur-
ing open house I spent most of
my time pointing freshmen in the
direction they were supposed to
go. One girl got all quivery-lipped
because she couldn't find Build-
ing 15.
Though I don't ride the bus,
one of my worst school experi-
ences was from being "bus left" so
I sympathize. In the fifth grade on
the very first day I missed the bus
for home. I lived a good five miles
away and was the shyest kid on
the face of the planet. I wandered
around aimlessly not knowing
that they had changed the bus
number and I had missed the
announcement. I was stranded
until 4:30 in the afternoon when
my teacher saw me sitting on the
sidewalk looking lost and took me
home.
The contents of my lunch box
were a big deal as a kid. I never
watched my mom pack my lunch
or peeked inside the lunch box
during the course of the morn-
ing because I always liked being
surprised.
When I was little she would
always write me little notes of en-
couragement. I don't remember
any of them, of course, but I al-
ways appreciated them, especially
when I was having a bad day.
Lunch was never anything ex-
otic usually peanut butter and
jelly or some kind of lunch meat.
But occasionally I'd get some-
thing I really liked, like olive and
pimento loaf and that colored the
rest of the day. On the other hand,
if I got the heel of the bread loaf,
my afternoon wasn't shaping up
very well.
In middle school I started eat-
ing in the cafeteria, which had its
own set of surprises. I remember
liking cafeteria food pretty well,
especially on Fridays when they'd
bake cinnamon rolls that felt like
manna from heaven. To this day
nothing can touch a freshly baked
Lake City Junior High School
cinnamon roll. Those hair net-
ted cafeteria ladies had their act
together.
Not that everything was good.
I hated grits and still do (I real-
ize that this is heresy that can
be traced to my Yankee roots).
I tended to play with my grits
instead of eating them, shap-
ing them into little grit animals
or seeing how long they'd hang
suspended from my fork without
falling on my plate.
Have a good school year every-
one.

Alleged assault by Traceyyouths


Three juvenile males are ac-
cused of aggravated assault and
trespass after they threatened
employees of Camp Tracey Chil-
dren's Home who were searching
for them as potential runaways
the morning of August 17.
The youths, two of whom are
14 and one 16, were found in a
barn belonging to Wilford Mc-
Cormick, a Jacksonville minis-
ter and founder of the home of
wayward juveniles off Crews Rd.
in north Baker County. The barn
was on adjacent land owned by
Mr. McCormick, and the trio ap-
parently had locked themselves
inside.
Mr. McCormick, along with his
son Derrick and employees Wil-
liam Morris and Jeffrey Econom,
said the boys threatened them
with what were described as
"sharp pointed digging shovels."
Deputy Matt Sigers said the three
complied when he entered the
barn and ordered them to put
down the shovels.
Mr. Econom told the officer
the boys had run away from
Camp Tracey in the past but al-


ways returned. A fourth male,
also age 14, ran from the property
the same morning and has not
been located. He is from the Lake
Worth area.
The missing youth is black,
5'11" and weighs about 90
pounds.
The sheriffs office referred
the cases to the Department
of Juvenile Justice, which sent
them back to the camp. The next
day, two of them were released
to parents. Criminal complaints
were requested by the elder Mc-
Cormick for trespass on his prop-
erty.
In other cases, William Akers,
39, of St. George, GA was arrested
for aggravated assault during the
early morning hours of August
23 after he allegedly threatened a
14-year-old male with a knife.
Mr. Akers was arrested by
Deputy Daniel Nichols after he
returned to an address on K.C.
Farms Rd. near Baxter about
1:3o to pick up girlfriend Leslie
Heimback, 38, who the youth al-
legedly touched inappropriately.
The suspect was also ticketed


for driving on a suspended li-
cense.
David Crews, 38, of Mac-
clenny was named in a criminal
complaint for battery on two
people outside Mac's Liquors
downtown about 2:00 the morn-
ing of August 22.
A surveillance video alleg-
edly shows Mr. Crews punch a
17-year-old male in the face after
jumping over the outside deck
at the bar. The boy's father then
struck the assailant with a beer
bottle, and a fight ensued dur-
ing which the father was tossed
through the railing into a park-
ing lot.
The father and son, whose
addresses were in Palm Coast
and Ormond Beach respectively,


Bogus checks on



construction firm


were not able to identify the sus-
pect. Deputy Shawn Bishara said
the video only caught Mr. Crews'
attack on the boy. Also injured in
the face during an ensuing me-
lee was Timothy Draper, 23, of
St. George, who is related to the
youth's father.
They drove to Fraser Hospi-
tal's emergency ward for treat-
ment.
Criminal complaints for bat-
tery were filed against Linda
Crawford, 61, of Glen St. Mary on
August 21 for accosting Amanda
Williams, 21, of Sanderson at the
county health department, and
against Crystal Higginbotham,
18, of Glen for allegedly attacking
a 17-year-old female off Crews
Rd. the evening of August 19.


Police are attempting to de-
termine the source of three
fraudulent checks written on a
Macclenny-based construction
company and cashed recently at
the Macclenny Mart convenience
store downtown.
Store manager Jackie Wallace
said the checks, totalling $1445,
were written to three individu-
als from GCO Construction. The
company owner, Thomas Bar-
ber, told Deputy Pete Quinley
he banks at Vystar Credit Union.
The bogus checks were on First
Federal Bank of Florida.
The case was reported August
22 and sheriff's investigators
were to interview the store clerk
who cashed the checks and ob-
tain surveillance video in an at-
tempt to identify them.
The checks were issued to
Teerria Spencer for $483.07,
Chester Jefferson for $482.11 and
Marlanne Duncan for $479.33.
In other fraud cases:
Donald Long accused his
brother James Long, 48, of Mac-
clenny of theft and fraudulent
use of his debit and credit cards,
and checkbook.
The victim told Deputy Pat-
rick McGauley his brother likely
entered his residence on Jasmine
Lane in Macclenny about August
10 while he was away, and knew
the whereabouts of a hidden key
used to gain entry.
Mr. Long also was notified
by Jacksonville police that his


brother was a passenger in a ve-
hicle stopped there, and his debit
card was in a bag along with oth-
ers believed to be stolen.
The card was used at three
ATMs in west Jacksonville to ob-
tain $600, and at several stores.
Mr. Long believes his brother ac-
tivated the card using the phone
at the victim's residence, and
that he applied fraudulently for
a Home Depot credit card using
his brother's name.
A criminal complaint alleges
burglary, grand theft, fraudulent
use of the card and checks, and
acquiring a card by fraud.
A credit card inadvertently
left on the counter of the Waffle
House by Tracy Lamb of Glen St.
Mary was used just minutes later
at State Line Grocery on SR 121
on August 15.
The restaurant told Ms. Lamb
that the card may have mistaken-
lybeen given to a Georgia woman
named as a suspect in the case.
Deputy Patrick McGauley said it
appears the suspect determined
the card was active by purchas-
ing one dollar's worth of gasoline
at State Line, then $103 in mer-
chandise.
Patrice Washington of Mac-
clenny reported August 18 her
Vystar card was used several
times beginning four days earli-
er, mostly at ATM machines. She
told police she lost the card, and
that the transactions took place
in Orange Park and Jacksonville.

Enters Walmart, stuffs


laptop into his clothing
A surveillance tape will be used in an attempt to learn the identity of
a white male who entered the Walmart Supercenter in the early morn-
ing of August 20 and walked out with a laptop computer valued at $800
stuffed in his pants.
A store security employee said the same man returned to the store
about 3:30 that afternoon demanding power cords and batteries to the
unit. Employees were not able to detain him or obtain identification.
Videos show the man dressed in a striped shirt and blue jeans
walking toward the electronics department about 4:oo am and lift a
Hewlett-Packard Pravillion computer from a display, then head toward
the automotive department while concealing it in his clothing.
Moments later a video near the store entrance shows him leaving
with a large flat object clearly visible under his shirt.
In other thefts:
Kenneth Dinkins reported August 19 two boat motors valued at
$700 were taken from his property off Riverside Dr. in Macclenny. He

A half-dozen persons, two of

served recently with warrants for
a range of offenses outside Baker

They were:
Alvin Padgett, 37, of Jack-
sonville, on a warrant from Sum-
ter County for failure to pay child

when served with the warrant.
David Pembleton, 26, of

Collision

on US 90

injures two
Two Baker County drivers re-
ceived minor injuries when their
westbound vehicles collided on
US 90 near Baker Correctional
the morning of August 25.
Billy Griffis, 29, of Macclenny
failed to notice that a 1995 Toy-
ota driven by Penny Croft, 44,
of Sanderson had slowed and
struck it from the rear with his
2004 Ford pickup.
The impact sent the Toyota
veering right in a clockwise di-
rection, and it overturned on
the driver's side near the shoul-
der tree line, said investigating
Trooper D.L. Myers.
Mr. Griffis' pickup halted on
the eastbound shoulder facing
west. He was charged with care-
less driving.
The accident happened about
6:40 am and both drivers were
wearing seat belts, said Trooper
Myers.


Arrest for battery
A Macclenny man faces multiple charges following his arrest at a
north city address following an alleged attack of his girlfriend during
an argument late on August 17.
Deputy Shawn Bishara said when he arrived at the address on North
Boulevard about 11:3o, Dawn Boger, 45, was upset and bore red marks
and scratches on her chest area. She claims she was accosted by Chris-
topher Webb, 41, who had locked himself in a nearby residence and
turned out the lights.
The officer said he drew his pistol after Mr. Webb refused to come
out or show his hands. When he did step outside, the boyfriend cursed
the deputy and refused to calm himself even after the officer drew his
taser gun.
Deputy Bishara said he called for backup and forcibly placed Mr.
Webb in handcuffs, only to have the prisoner ram him into the side
of his patrol car, damaging a rear panel. Once inside the cruiser, Mr.
Webb continued to curse and kick the right side rear window.
Ms. Boger said an argument broke out after her boyfriend returned
from a night out drinking with a cousin. They again argued after they
went to bed, the girlfriend said she was attacked when she attempted

Mr. Webb was booked at county jail for domestic violence battery,
battery on the officer, resisting arrest with violence, disorderly conduct
and damaging the police car.
In another domestic violence case, Ricky Smith, 29, was arrested
early on August 23 after he pushed wife Amanda Follis, 23, to the
ground when she intervened in an argument between the suspect and
witness Angela Kellogg, 33.
Police were called to the address off CR 23C about 1:15 and both
women told Deputy Trent Page the incident occurred subsequent to an

Quilting through sfi


Needle pointer recounts life

KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com


Helen Lindley still has the
Singer sewing machine she
bought in 1956.
"I bought it shortly after I
began working and I still use
it today," she said.
The 24-year Macclenny
resident and New York native
got interested in the craft of
quilting six decades ago.
Although she long ago lost
track of the number of quilts
she has made in her lifetime,
she averages 5-6 completed
ones a year. If she works on
smaller ones, such as crib
quilts, she may finish as many
as nine.
"The amount of scrap fab-
ric I have at any given time
dictates the size of the quilt I
choose to make," she said.
When she graduated from
high school in 1952, she had
learned basic sewing skills
from her mother and in home
economics class.
"My mother even made my
sister's formal gown to wear ,
to a high school dance. There
was not a lot of money back
then, so if you wanted lots of
clothes you made them," she
said.
She still makes many of
her own clothes, but her first Hi
love is quilting.
"I came to it gradually," she explained. "I
sewed, crocheted and embroidered as I was
growing up. Quilting was one of many needle
arts I tried and I ended up liking it most of
all."
Ms. Lindley can be found most mornings
at the Baker County Council on Aging senior
center. Last Monday while at the center, she
was busy working on a quilt with a pattern
known as Double Irish Chain.
She sat at one of the many tables where
activities were taking place, working on her
hand-held quilting frame. Nearby, other la-
dies were busy with crochet or doing cross
stitch.
"My sewing machine is good for a basic
straight stitch used for putting quilt squares
together," she said. "But the actual quilting


PHO
elen Lindley surrounded by her quilt and embroidery project
and embroidery, I do that myself by hand."
She creates quilts for her own pleasure as
well as selling them occasionally. If someone
commissions a quilt, they furnish the supplies.
She enjoys giving quilts to community events
for fund raisers and has donated several to
families who have been victims of household
fires.
"Knowing your handiwork is really ap-
preciated, that's when making a quilt is truly
a pleasure," said Ms. Lindley. "That and the
fact that it is such a relaxing pastime. That's
why I mainly do it."
She often wins blue ribbons at the Baker
County Fair and several times has won Best
in Class and Best in Show.
Although she was able to pick up the basics
of the craft on her own, she has taken a quilt-


decades


time hobby
ing class from time to time.
"For something like ap-
plique work, especially if you
enter a competition, judges
don't want to see those
stitches at all. Classes helped
me master that type of stitch-
ing," she said.
Ms. Lindley laments
the fact that when the new
Walmart Supercenter
opened, the fabric section
had been eliminated.
"There are so many people
in this county who practice
needle arts and having the
fabric section at the former
Walmart was a blessing," she
said. "Now, you have to travel
30-40 miles to buy supplies
and for those who don't drive,
Q it's a major inconvenience.
You can't even get any good
thread locally."
That doesn't stop her,
however. Scraps still come
from other sources, often
donated by friends and folks
who know about the craft
projects always going on at
the COA center.
The most complicated
quilt she ever undertook fea-
tured a Tree of Life design.
The quilt was pieced together
with fabric in colors of blue,
green, brown and gold.
"It took me four months
of steady work to finish the
TO quilting and embroidery,"
she said. "I thought that tree
of life would take me the rest
of my life to finish, but I finally did. It won best
of class in the fair that year."
Ms. Lindley switches from quilting to other
needle crafts occasionally. One recent project
turned out to be a masterwork of embroidered
floral designs in pink, red, yellow, blue and
green.
"That one took four months to complete,
too," she said. "The COA has nice lighting to
work by. I can't see well enough to drive any-
more, but I'm glad my eyesight is still good
enough for me to quilt everyday."
When she isn't quilting, she's looking for
ideas, always thinking how she can use fabric
to create a design.
"I have so many ideas," she said. "I think
I'll run out of time before I run out of ideas."


Fernandina seafood proves delish


BOB GERARD
PRESS STAFF
Summer is winding down,
school is back in session and be-
fore you know it all your time will
be taken up with stuff you have to
do, or traveling to college football
games, your kids soccer games
and such. So if you are looking
for a great way to spend a the last
few weekends of summer, a trip
to Fernandina Beach might be
just what the doctor ordered.
My wife and I were in Fernan-
dina this past weekend for her
birthday. Our graduating senior
drama students had given us a
gift certificate to Elizabeth Pointe
bed and breakfast and while we
were in Fernandina we got to
enjoy some terrific seafood at a
couple of very different restau-
rants.
The Marina is right downtown
on Centre Street, literally across
the street from the docks in a
building built during Reconstruc-
tion after the Civil War.
As downtown restaurants go
in Fernandina it is moderately
priced and versatile. Diners can
go in beach casual or a little
dressier and be rewarded with
good service and delicious sea-
food.
What I like about eating sea-
food in Fernandina is it's invari-
ably fresh. The shrimp have come
in on the boats and aren't frozen.
You can really tell the difference.
I had shrimp and crab cakes
and Kelley had a shrimp basket,
and they were delicious. The
shrimp were big and succulent
with a light batter that didn't dis-
guise the freshness or the taste.
With just a little cocktail or
tarter sauce this was shrimp
heaven. The crab cake was pretty
good as well. Crab cakes are very
tricky to get right. Once you've
had the real thing in Baltimore,
most other crab cakes pale in
comparison as being mushy or
over-spiced.
The crab cake at The Marina
was not up to the quality of the
shrimp, but it didn't disappoint
either. It had a good taste, wasn't
too greasy and didn't suffer from
an excess of filling.


I was a little concerned about
our second seafood restaurant.
Sandy Bottoms is a bar and grill
right on the beach, and is neither
fancy or upscale. It is standard
beach fare with a live band in the
evenings. Most patrons avoid the
interior and move out on the deck
where they can watch the waves
crash in and the surfers having
fun in the water.


The food was surprisingly
good. I had shrimp and onion
rings and though not quite up
to the standards of The Marina,
they were much less expensive,
fresh and tasty. The onion rings
were delicious in the same light
batter as the shrimp.
Kelley had loaded nachos
covered in sweet chili and yellow
cheese. I had some and it was


very good.
Whether you want to duck in
for a lunch at Sandy Bottoms af-
ter a day on the beach or stop in
the evening at The Marina after
shopping on Centre Street, you
won't go wrong and your trip to
Fernandina Beach will be just
delicious.

The Macclenny Woman's Club
held its fall membership meeting
on August 20 at the clubhouse on
S. Fifth Street.
The event is held annually to
introduce prospective members
to the purpose of the club and the
many community and interna-
tional humanitarian projects it
participates in and supports.
In attendance were guests
from other women's clubs repre-
senting Fernandina Beach, Jack-
sonville and Tallahassee.
Charlene Reese, Florida Fed-
erated Woman's Club first vice
president, was the keynote speak-
er. Her talk addressed the united
efforts of woman's clubs and
the bonds of sisterhood through
working toward common goals.
Current Macclenny club presi-
dent Trilby Crews introduced
members to the club's theme for
the 2009-10 year: "Come grow
with us in a garden of service."
Member Anita Gerson and
friend Mark Lyons designed a
special stage backdrop with gar-
dens as a motif to emphasize the
year's new theme.
The two created a scene de-
picting both a formal and an
informal garden. The formal gar-
den contained a fountain under a
lighted arch accented with ferns
and statues, all against a Thomas
Kinkade painting backdrop.
The informal garden con-
tained an antique wheel barrow,
a live bay tree and a large Rag-
gedy Ann doll.
Business included discussion
about a change of approach in
the orientation of new members.
A separate orientation meeting
for new members has been tra-
ditionally held outside regular
meetings.
A possible change will include
orientation and information
about the club's history and pri-
mary project areas during the
induction of new members at the
October meeting.
A brunch of sandwiches, pas-
tries and coffee was served and,


typical of women's club meetings,
everyone in attendance received
a goody bag with treats from lo-
cal merchants.


Membership in the Mac-
clenny Woman's Club is open to
all women age 18 and above. The
club's major project areas include


conservation, home life, domestic
violence awareness, international
and public affairs and the arts.

The Baker County Council on
Aging is having a real 'Senior'
Prom on Friday September 11 at
the Agriculture Center on US 90.
Our ladies will be dressing up
in evening gowns and our men
will be handsome in suits. This
event is a highlight of our year,
long awaited and deeply enjoyed.
It would mean a lot to our la-
dies to look extra pretty on that
night.
If you have evening dresses,
bridesmaid dresses or other ap-
propriate attire that you no lon-
ger use, we would love to have
them. Drop off your dressy dress
or men's suit at 101 E. Macclenny
Avenue, or call us at 259-2223
and we will be happy to pick it


up.
The dresses will be sold to our
ladies for $5 and they can alter
them to fit. Trying on the dresses
is almost as much fun as the
prom itself.
We will have special music
and entertainment and we will be
feasting on heavy hors d'oeuvres
catered by Taylor'd. There will be
a $5.00 charge for the prom to
help pay for the event. Everyone
over 60 is invited, but you must
RSVP so we will have enough
seating and food for everyone.
Also, since we have more la-

older man who loves to dance,
please send him our way!

In compliance with state law, the City of Macclenny is seeking to renew the Consumptive Use Permit for the use of water regulated by the St. Johns River Water Management District
(SJRWMD). SJRWMD as a part of the permit process is encouraging the city to incorporate a tiered utility rate structure to promote water conservation. The tiered rating as proposed
will result in a rate increase for all users. Customers using excessive water will see the greatest percentage of increase.

Please review the chart below for a summary of how these rates will affect your utility bill. Included in this summary is an increase to the refuse collection rates initiated through a cost
analysis study which was approved in May 2008. We welcome your attendance at this meeting.

Sincere thank you
It is with deep appreciation
that the family of Iris P. Crews
Burnsed wants to thank the many
people who helped us during her
long illness and death. Brother
David Crawford performed the
lovely service, his words of how
strong her love of her family
was. She has a big family, but her
heart was bigger; she loved us all.
Brother David talked about our
memories with her that we all
cherish and how much she loved
her church and Lord. Thank you,
Brother David.
Thank you to Jerry and Bren-
da's Sunday School class at First
Baptist Church of Macclenny for
the wonderful luncheon on Sun-
day and the food they brought
throughout the weekend. The
music performed by Linda Jerni-
gan and Jeremy Sands was beau-
tiful. Thank you both.
To everyone who called, sent a
card, brought food, sent beautiful
flower arrangements and prayed
for Mama (also known as Granny
Iris or Granny), your kindness
helped us so much during our
time of sorrow.
Thank you to the staff at Wells
Nursing Home and especially
Phyllis Rhoden and Linda Moore
for the excellent medical care and
personal loving care you gave to
our Mama. Each one of you gave
her your best and we thank all of
you very much. She was in great
hands in her "House and Diner"
at WNH, and because of her faith
we know she is in the "greatest"
hands of all.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL,
JERRY & BRENDA CREWS,
LARRY & PATSY CREWS, GLENDA

DELL & JENNIFER CREWS, ROGER &

Family says thanks
We take this opportunity to
thankthe many, manypeople who
showed just how much Charlotte
was loved. The flowers, food and
support were overwhelming and
very much appreciated. Thank
you so much to the Baker County
fire and rescue team and also the
sheriffs department for your kind
compassion. To the Christian Fel-
lowship Temple, no words could
ever express the gratitude for all
that your wonderful members do
for the family in times like this.
Brother David Thomas, you have
the biggest, kindest, most gentle
heart of any one person I have
ever known. It seems that every
time I need a shoulder to lean
on, I look up and there you are.
What an incredible blessing you
are to your church family, this
county and to God above. Thanks
so much to all the people who
loved Charlotte and treated her
with kindness. You will never be
forgotten.
SINCERELY,
JOHN MILLS (HUSBAND),

In Loving Memory
of
Gloria N. Canaday
12/11/1946-8/20/1987
"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
again.
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.
WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU,
YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS


THE VOICE OF

THE MARTYRS

Coming to

Raiford Road Church

on Sunday, August 30 at 6:30 pm
Mission representative, Darcie Gill, has been "serving our
persecuted family with hope" through her work at VOM for
over 10 years. She has traveled extensively, sometimes with
her husband Tim, throughout the eastern region of the US
sharing the challenging yet encouraging message of the
persecuted church.
Darcie has traveled to Sudan, China, Vietnam, Pakistan,
Indonesia, Cuba, Myanmar, Laos, Kashmir, India, Korea,
Columbia & the Middle East to bring help, encouragement
and assistance to our family living there. She tenderly yet
powerfully shares the challenging and inspiring stories and
testimonies of our family in these nations. Through God's
word, she shares what this should mean to us. Although we
refer to these believers as the suffering or persecuted church,
Darcie communicates the rest of the story. God is at work for
His eternal purposes in the lives of our brothers and sister in
these most difficult situations.

It's been a year since you went
away; my heart aches for you
every single day. I know you're
in Heaven and holding me
tight; if not for your memories,
I'd never make it through the
night. Thanks for being my An-
gel, especially when times are
low; I love you and I miss you.
Just wanted you to know.

visits, prayers, flowers, cards
and support. A heartfelt thank
you to Fraser Funeral Home on
Normandy Boulevard for doing
such a great job. J.D. served his
country well, so to the Jackson-

you for such a lovely place for our
loved one's final rest.

LOCAL CHURCH TO OFFER WORKSHOP
ON MONEY MANAGEMENT
Are you tired of debt, always being broke, living from paycheck to paycheck, owing
more than you make, drowning from unexpected expense? Well then, this class is for
you...
13-week Financial Peace Workshop
First Baptist Church, Glen St. Mary
beginning Sunday, August 30 at 4:30 PM

The first session is free with an introduction and overview. The only cost is the purchase of
a set of materials for each family. Dave Ramsey is the founder of Financial Peach University
(Total Money Makeover Program) and the host of a nationally syndicated radio talk show. This
workshop shows people how to put into practice proven common-sense principles that allow
them to learn how to:
Get out of debt
Control spending
Begin to save money on a regular basis
Take the stress and conflict over money out of the marriage
Set and achieve personal and family financial goals

The Financial Peace Workshop gives people the tools on how to live on less, how to love within
their means, and how to maximize the use of the resources they have.


A married couple said,
"The workshop made us sit down as a
couple and communicate and it gave us
an instant pay raise."


A single mom said,
"I hated a budget, but I ended up getting
the hang of it, and it ended up being more
of a blessing than anything else."

STOP living with guilt, frustrations, and
headaches that come with trying to manage
your personal finances. Learn how to find
financial peace.

If you need help with your family finances,
plan to attend the introductory workshop
Sunday, August 30 at 4:30 PM to see how
the workshop can take the stress, even the
conflict out of your finances. For additional
information about this workshop, call the
church at 259-6977.

Jags still

a question

mark in

preseason


FAT LADY
ROBERT GERARD

Now that two pre-season
games are under our belts, what
can we expect from the Jackson-
ville Jaguars?
Honestly, I'm not sure.
On the positive side, the re-
ceiving corps looks much im-
proved. But then, as a friend of
mine commented, they didn't
have anywhere to go but up.
From the looks of things this
bunch does not have hands of
stone. They will be led by Tory
Holt and the veteran player
catches everything thrown in his
vicinity. Holt may have lost a step
since the time I saw him catch
five touchdowns against Florida
State as a student at NC State,
but he has not lost the ability to
put his hands on the ball.
Troy Williamson, awful last
year, showed his desire to stay
with the team against the Bucs
on Saturday as he pulled in a
73-yard and 61-yard touchdown
passes from David Garrard in the
24-23 loss.
The remainder of the receiv-
ers. while generally no name
bunch, showed some ability,
particularly in the second period
of last Monday's opener against
Miami.
Garrard looked pretty good
and second stringer Todd Bou-
man, an 11-year vet, has looked
equally good and bad. He was
very effective in the second pe-
riod of the Miami game, hitting
five straight passes.
Maurice Jones-Drew is the
feature back this year and though
he got a few more carries than the
two he had against Miami, it is
impossible to gauge how effective
he will be in the regular season.
One thing is clear, there's no
Fred Taylor waiting in the wings.
With the exception of veteran
Greg Jones, the running game is
Jones-Drew's to make work or
not.
The line needs to do a better
job of pass protection and the
defensive unit a much better job
of stopping the run. Gone are the
years when the Jaguars had the
best run defense in the NFL.
The pre-season doesn't mean
a whole lot because so many play-
ers are shuffled in and out of the
lineup. If it did, I would say the
team that will surprise everyone
this year is the Chicago Bears.
They have looked very good so
far this pre-season.
As for the Jaguars I would
grade them out with a C-. Let's
hope that they can do a little
studying and get that A.

Wildcat football fans 4
were plenty wild last Friday r
showing support for their
teams at the Wildcat Pride
Community Pep Rally at the
BCHS gym.
Fans began packing the
gym an hour before the cer-
emony, and the combination
of enthusiasm, noise and
body heat almost blew the
roof right off the building.
The pep rally included
performances by middle
school, junior varsity and
varsity cheerleaders, as well
as a dance number by the
middle school dance team
and a routine by the BCHS
majorettes.
"I thought that some of
the performances were real-
ly good," said head football coach
Bobby Johns. "The cheerleaders,
the dance teams and the major-
ettes did an outstanding job."
Every football player from
every level of the game in Baker
County was introduced at the pep
rally, as well as some youth base-
ball players. The varsity football
season was the main focus, but
it was truly a rally for the entire
community.
"We're really, really excited
about the support we're getting
right now," said Johns. "We hope
that this will feed over into next
week and that people will come
with us when we go to Callahan."
The Baker County football fans
let it be known how excited they
are for a new football season, but
this Friday, August 28, will be
the first chance for the players to
show their fans how ready they
are for the season to start.
The Wildcats have been hit-
ting each other for the last three
weeks and the first chance to line
up against another team will be a
welcome opportunity. The Wild-
cats travel to West Nassau for the
Kick Off Classic at 7:30 pm.
"We've been getting ready
over the last two or three weeks
for their new offense," said de-
fensive coordinator Jamie Rodg-
ers. "They've got a brand new of-
fense this year and they'll do the
same thing they did last year on
defense."
Varsity players will only play
in the first half of Friday's classic.
The team has already suffered a
handful of injuries and they're
trying to stay healthy for the first
regular season game at Crescent
City on September 4.

Varsity football players joined Milton "Oshay" Johnson in singing the alma mater.


"They've [West Nassau] got
some big offensive linemen that
they haven't had in the past," said
Rodgers. "We've got to be very
strong up front to keep the offen-
sive linemen off our linebackers.
If we do a good job on the defen-
sive line, we'll be in good shape."
Last year's pep rally was can-
celled because of an injury to
Milton "Oshay" Johnson that
left him paralyzed. When John-
son was announced at this year's
rally, the electricity in the gym
surged. As teammates gathered
around Johnson, it became clear
that he is the team's inspirational
leader.
"You can really see how ex-
cited the kids get," said Rodgers.
'This pep rally makes them start
feeling like a ball game is coming
and they're not just working all
the time."
The team has been work-
ing hard on the field, but coach
Johns feels like the school needs
to work on their sense of pride.
Johns is starting a tradition this
year that he hopes will boost the
morale of the entire school. After
every game this season, the play-
ers will lead the fans in the sing-
ing of the Alma Matter.
"I don't know if that's ever
been sung around here," said
Johns. "At least not by the foot-
ball team. I think we're in serious
need as an entire school of an
overhaul of our pride."
The players concluded the ral-
ly by teaching the fans the song
and then encouraging them to
join in for a second rendition.
"We're trying to start some-
thing with us that is purely about
having pride in our school," said
Johns. "We hope that it will feed


over into the whole school itself
and hopefully into our commu-
nity."
The pep rally was an overall
success. The only complaint was
that temperatures rose to an al-
most uncomfortable level in the
packed high school gym. But
Johns understood the heat and
ran the ceremony with fan com-
fort in mind.
"We pulled it off in about
an hour and ten minutes," said
Johns. "That was about as good
as we could do."
With the pep rally out of the
way, the Wildcats are ready to
play. The coaches like to take the
season one week at a time, but
there are a few dates that have
been circled since the schedule
came out.
On September 18, the Wild-
cats play longtime rival Bradford
County on the road. Then a week
later the Wildcats will travel to
Jacksonville to welcome Ribault
to the district on September 25.
BCHS begins play with four
of their first five games on the
road, including the Kick Off Clas-
sic. But the Wildcats will enjoy a
home field advantage for five of
their final six games of the year.
The coaches feel like October 23
against Jacksonville Raines will
be one of the biggest of the sea-
son.
"Two huge games that we've
had circled for a while are the
games against Ribault and Raines
out of Jacksonville," said Rodg-
ers. "They're both district oppo-
nents, and there's a good chance
that the district champion may
come out of those two games."
The Wildcats are looking for-
ward to those games, but Friday's
Kick Off Classic is the only thing
on their minds right now.
The 2009 BCHS "Future
Wildcats" Football Camp will be
held on Saturday at the BCHS
practice fields. Registration will
be from 7 a.m. until 8 a.m. and
the camp ends at noon. All play-
ers in attendance will receive a
free t-shirt, and anyone eligible
for the Touchdown Club or the
middle school team is welcome
to participate.


Travis Tyson and Corey Elasik
were named to the Florida Sports
Writers Association's all-state
baseball team after two impres-
sive senior seasons.
Both players made the third
team and plan to continue their
playing careers at the college
level.
Tyson was a four-year starter
for the Wildcats, playing second
base in his freshman and sopho-
more years and then moving to
shortstop for his final two as a
Wildcat.
Tyson helped turn 114 double
plays over his career as a middle
infielder and will continue his
defensive legacy with Lake-Sum-
ter Community College in the
spring.
"Tyson is one of the best de-
fensive players ever to come out
of Baker County," said BCHS
head coach John Staples.



Former


Wildcat


honored

Former BCHS football star
and current Troy State Trojan
Bear Woods received another
accolade recently when he was
named to the Lombardi Award
watch list.
Woods, the son of Mark and
Kelly Woods, was one of five Tro-
jans on the list. Only Oklahoma
and Florida had more players on
it.
The Rotary Lombardi Award
is presented annually by Hous-
ton's Rotary Club to the nation's
top college football lineman of-
fense or defense who, in addi-
tion to outstanding performance
and ability, best exemplifies the
discipline of Vince Lombardi.
The Watch List was formed by
using 2008 postseason and 2009
preseason All-Conference and
All-America teams. Additional
nominations were accepted from
Rotary Lombardi Award voters
and college sports information
directors.
On Oct. 14, the 12 semifinalists
for the award will be announced.
On Nov. 11, four finalists will be
named. All of the finalists then
travel to Houston for a ceremony
Dec. 9 at the Hilton Americas
during which the winner is an-
nounced.
The 2008 Rotary Lombardi
Award winner was Brian Or-
akpo, a defensive end from the
University of Texas. He was the
first round draft selection of the
Washington Redskins.
Woods had an outstanding
junior season for the Trojans at
linebacker, and they expect big
things of him this year as well.
