2-year sentence for


'hammer' bandit


One of the members of the
"Sledgehammer Gang" that
broke through the walls of three
area businesses in late 2008
and early this year received a
two-year prison sentence after
entering pleas in circuit
court on December 7.
Michael Kronz V,
22, of Jacksonville has
already served 295 days
since his arrest and will
get credit off the prison
sentence for that time.
Judge James Nilon
imposed a three-year
probation once Mr.
Kronz completes the
sentence.
As part of a deal with Mic
the state, he pleaded no
contest to burglary and grand
theft from the Games Galore
store on South 6th in Macclen-
ny behind Woody's BBQ. Mr.
Kronz and two juveniles includ-
ing a brother entered the build-
ing during the night on January
28 by knocking a hole through a

wall with a sledgehammer. The
same method was used to enter
the Hole in the Wall gun shop
on South 4th on December 8,
2008 and again at Duval Gun
and Pawn in Glen St. Mary on
January lo.
The defendant en-
tered a similar plea to
a reduced charge of
burglary of the Hole in
the Wall, reduced from
armed burglary.
Local investigators
got a break in the case
early this year when the
girlfriend of a man ac-
cused with Mr. Kronz
in another case gave
ronz information on stolen
guns to Jacksonville
detectives. Mr. Kronz also was
stopped by police in Jackson-
ville and had one of the stolen
guns and the sledgehammer in
his vehicle.
The thieves reportedly got
$6400 worth of firearms from
Hole in the Wall, which they
later claimed were stolen from
them. The merchandise take
at Games Galore was tallied at
nearly $1400, some of which
was pawned in Jacksonville, as
was a portion of the estimated
$9300 in jewelry taken from
Duval Gun on US 90 in Glen.

Coping with murder of her child

"When my daughter Deanna was
murdered by her ex-boyfriend in
2007, my life became a nightmare. I
didn't leave my house for nearly two
years. I couldn't eat. I couldn't sleep.
I lay awake at night, haunted by what
her last hours must have been like."
That's what Eva Redmon of Mac-
clenny told the congregation of Sand-
erson Christian Revival Center on
November 8. Others who also lost
children, many to violent crimes, at-
tended the special service to hear her


speak.
It was arranged by pastor Duwayne
Bridges, who recently helped Ms. Red-
mon write an account about her expe-
riences dealing with her daughter's
death entitled I Can Laugh Again.
After being a virtual recluse for two
years, Ms. Redmon attended the Na-
tional Tea Party in Washington, DC
in September and then the Get Moti-
vated! seminar in Jacksonville.
The latter event featured speakers
like Colin Powell and former First
Lady Laura Bush. While there she
was interviewed by Jacksonville's

'Hammer' bandit...


( Macclenny was given 183 days
already served in county jail after
pleading no contest to attempted
armed robbery of the Quick N
Handy convenience store on
North 6th in Macclenny on May
to of this year.
The state dropped companion
charges of aggravated battery
with a deadly weapon and petty
theft. Judge Nilon adjudicated
Mr. Thomas guilty.
He is the same defendant ac-
quitted last month of the similar
crime of entering the Kangaroo
store on US 90 across from the
courthouse armed with a small
caliber automatic pistol later that
month. In both cases, the rob-
ber shown in surveillance videos
had his face covered, though his
physical size and voice inflection
matched those of Mr. Thomas.
In the November trial, the jury
heard evidence and testimony


from product distributors that a
pack of Newport cigarettes found
at Mr. Thomas' west Macclenny
address the morning after the
robbery came from the Kanga-
roo.
The defendant told police
that morning he purchased the
cigarettes from a store in Lawtey.
The distributor testified that the
lot number on the pack proves it
was delivered to either of the two
Kangaroo outlets in Macclenny,
and that it could not have been
purchased in Lawtey as claimed.
The Kangaroo store video
shows the robber getting both
cash and the Newports from a
clerk before fleeing on foot from
the store. A prison tracking dog
followed a scent from the scene
to Mr. Thomas' residence.
The defendant's criminal re-
cord includes an earlier robbery
conviction for which he served an
eight-year prison term.


Deficit is possible...


( 65. During 2008-09, 54 retirees
received health care benefits.
The report will be required ev-
ery two years.
"A district that doesn't owe as
much as we do probably doesn't
have to do it as often," said Ms.
Richardson.
In other business this week:
The board accepted three
low bids for construction proj-
ects around the district. They
included: The $129,017 bid for
reroofing the district office from
BBG Contracting Group of Jack-
sonville, the $663,100 bid for re-
placement of heating and cooling
systems at high school buildings
6 and 8 from Little and Williams
of Lake City, and the $149,725
bid for demolishing the middle
school's former 6th grade center
[also the former Macclenny Ele-
mentary] from Burkalter Wreck-
ing, Inc. of Jacksonville.
The board also approved
reimbursing a couple the cost
of transporting their children to
school. The parents recently lost
their home in Baker County and
moved in with family in Jackson-
ville, but were reluctant to change
schools.
The reimbursement rate is
44.5 cents a mile with a maximum
daily distance of 105 miles. The


district will also be reimbursed
half the mileage cost by the Duval
County School District.
The transportation reimburse-
ment is required by the federal
MicKinney-Vento Homeless Act
and will remain effective until the
end of the school year.


Justin Schulaka admitted
to violating probation in a 2008
grand theft case and was placed
on house arrest two years, fol-
lowed by one year on drug-of-
fender probation.
Judge Nilon also set aside
an earlier probation after Travis
Tyson admitted to violating it,
and placed him on drug-offender
probation for two years. He also
ordered a 270-dayjail sentence,
and gave the defendant credit
for 122 days already served. The
judge imposed evening curfews
during the probation term.
The driver's license of Loren
Sellers was revoked for three
years and she will serve consecu-
tive six-month terms in county
jail after pleading no contest to
driving under the influence caus-
ing both personal and property
damage. Judge Nilon imposed a
four-year probation after release
from jail, plus a $500 fine.
The state dropped one of the
property damage counts in re-
turn for the plea.
SDavid Hullett will be on pro-
bation three years after pleading
to making a fraudulent insur-
ance claim and a false report of
a crime.

MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD

Nothing spells the holiday
season to me like a big Jamaican
man in a Santa suit selling fake
Rolex watches on the street in
Chinatown. And nothing quite
embodies the spirit of the season
more than a 6o-year-old woman
punching an Italian tourist in the
nose because they both wanted
the same taxi cab.
Yep. It's Christmas time in
New York City, where you are
guaranteed to see some of the
most thrilling and unusual sights
of the holiday season.
This year Kelley decided it
would be fun to go to New York
and see the Christmas lights. In
all our years of going to New York
we've never gone during Christ-
mas. So we loaded up the family
and her mom and dad and off we
went.
Naturally, for us nothing is
ever easy. Sara Beth had audi-
tions in Tennessee and would be
arriving late while the boys had
finals at college and would be
leaving early.
But for a while we all were
together and celebrating the sea-
son.
It was loads of fun and very in-
teresting as well. New York does
it right. There were decorations
everywhere and the political cor-
rectness that is supposed to be
permeating the country didn't

got the perfect picture of it. It was
one of those "Ah" moments.
Seconds later I was reminded
I was in New York City and not a
Christmas movie.
"FBI."
"NYPD. Don't move!!"
I spun around and not 5 feet
from me three undercover police
officers had slammed a guy up
against a wall and had a young
woman by the arm.
The handcuffs were on in sec-
onds.
It seems that with revelers
come pickpockets. This guy and
gal duo must not have been very
good at it.
Later that night there were
carolers in Times Square and we
looked at the amazing windows
at Bloomindales and Saks Fifth
Avenue.
We took the subway down to
Chinatown and that's where we
saw the Jamaican Santa hawking
fake Rolexes and Coach purses
made at a sweatshop in Thailand.
Chinatown is incredibly seedy,
but one block over, Little Italy is
a fairyland of lights and smells
and colors.
We bought the best cannolis
we had ever tasted at a church
bazaar. The baker was on hand
filling them with fresh and sweet
cream. Wow.
But the funny thing about it
was that side-by-side with these
wonderful holiday moments
there would be moments of typi-
cal New York City antics.
Sara Beth and I took a taxi
back to 6th Avenue from Little
Italy. As he pulled up to the
curb a couple of Italian tourists
and a 6o-year-old New York
woman descended on the cab.
We couldn't get out of it as they
argued in English and Italian and
finally the New Yorker hauled off
and smacked the Italian lady in
the nose.
We finally managed to get out
and I hustled Sara Beth down the
street so I don't know who won
the 15-round bout. I'm inclined to
put my money on the New York
woman. She was old but wiry.
In all, it was a wonderful trip
with great memories and lots of
fun photos. I would recommend
it to anyone who likes to travel.


I hate to sound
like a naysayer,
but the proposed
new name for
Lake City Com-
munity College is
ahemm!] awful.


IMPRESSIONS

Jim McGauley


The college announced last
week it was sending over to the
Florida Legislature its recom-
mendation Florida Gateway
College.
The change was approved by
the trustee board, one of four fi-
nalist names bubbling up from
what the college said were focus
groups in the five counties served
by LCCC, including Baker.
Community colleges, once
known as junior colleges, are
juicing up their names all around
Florida. Academia is fond of
language fiddling, particularly
when it perceives an existing
word is somehow deficient or, as
is often the case now, politically
incorrect.
A recent, and more local, ex-
ample is the disappearance of
the term "administrators" for
teachers kicked upstairs out of
classrooms and into the several
layers of bureaucracy. Someone
perceived [rightly in my opin-
ion] that the term had a nega-
tive connotation, so now they're
called "educational leaders."
Left behind in the "fix" was
the fact that "administrators"
earned that negative rub be-
cause the public [rightly again]
perceived there's too damned
many of them. Academia's so-
lution: re-name them and keep
everything else the same.
Such negativity was not the
case with junior colleges going
to community colleges and now
colleges, but someone pushed
the legislature to allow them
to "upgrade" to college status.
Somebody, or somebodies, must
have concluded there's a defi-
ciency surrounding the term
"community college."
But let's get back to the point.
Couldn't somebody come up
with a name that has more elec-
tricity? "Gateway" just doesn't
lend anything to the word "col-
lege" and being a "gateway" isn't
that great of an accolade in the
first place. It's in the same cat-
egory of, say "Pine Tree College"
or "We're One of the First Coun-
ties You Drive Through from
South Georgia College."
It is, in the words of our Joel
Addington, "forgettable."


Chuck Bran-
nan of Macclen-
ny, soon to be
chairman of the
LCCC trustees,


said he pulled a
"John Kerry" and voted for the
name after first voting against
it. He's not wild about it either,
but went along with it as a fait
accompli.
Mr. Brannan favored Suwan-
nee River College or Suwannee
Valley College because of the
proximity to the fabled river.
But Suwannee County, neigh-
boring Columbia to the west,
alas is in the catchment area of
North Florida Community Col-
lege in Madison. The latter cam-
pus is in the process of changing
its name also [all 28 either have
or are in the process], and may-
be that would look like usurping
a moniker.
LCCC's administration also
was concerned lest the new
name focus too much on a spe-
cific geographic area rather than
the five counties it serves.
How's this? FCCJ in Jack-
sonville is going with Florida
State College at Jacksonville,
so why don't we go with Florida
[dump the "State"] College at
Lake City? Granted, it focuses
on the city in which its main
campus is located, but does that
really matter? In fact, focusing
on avoiding Lake City in any
name complicates the issue, and
I can't imagine igniting a furious
protest from other counties be-
cause their names aren't in the
new school title.
It'd be impossible to calculate
the value of Lake City Commu-
nity College [and the forestry
school that preceded it] to Baker
County students the past six de-
cades, so ultimately what they
call it probably doesn't make
a lot of difference. The school
doesn't plan in the immediate
future to offer its own bachelor
degree tracts [perhaps nursing
and golf course maintenance
first, according to Mr. Brannan]
to replace the present agree-
ment it has with St. Leo Univer-
sity near Tampa. So in my mind
it remains very much a "com-
munity college" serving well the
gap between high school and
four-year institutions.
If they want to change the
name to include "college" fine.
Florida Gateway College?
Not so fine.

Story about dog all lies
Dear Editor:
The story you wrote that appeared in last week's newspaper about
abusing our dog is all lies.
Myself and fiance Laura Anderson never did abuse our dog, a pit bull
and blue tick hound mix. The cage is not too small for him, and he can
move around in it.
We were staying at a friend's for a few days and Laura told Aletha
Crozier that we can't have Buster [the dog] there or we'd cause our
friend to lose his apartment.
Ms. Crozeir's trailer is infested with cockroaches, and when Laura
took the dog there she made sure that he had food and water and she
made sure that he was covered up so he would not bother anybody and
nobody would bother him.
Laura did tell Aletha she would return to take care of Buster when
she left work. She went there and the trailer was locked. Aletha has said
that the dog was not her responsibility and myself and Laura were to
take care of the dog. Buster never attacked anybody and he is a sweet
dog when you get to know him.

State road funds waning

Allotments will likely be cut in half


JOEL ADDINGTON I NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com


Florida's two small county road grant programs
have pumped close to $11 million into Baker County
during the last decade, and for the next two years at
least, one of the programs and about half the fund-
ing won't be available.
The program sticking around the Small County
Outreach Program [SCOP] that has doled out more
than $5.1 million here since 2001 did, however, get
a theoretical boost last week during the state legisla-
ture's special session.
The session, in part, addressed how to pay for
commuter trains in central and south Florida, which
meant shuffling around transportation dollars and
changing the SCOP funding formula.
Bills doing so passed both chambers of the legis-
lature and call for increasing SCOP's allocation from
5 percent to 10 percent of the State Transportation
Trust Fund beginning in 2014.
The trust fund itself only receives a portion of
documentary stamp taxes those levied on land
transactions. And with the real estate market still
slacking, estimating how much cash will filter down
to SCOP isn't easy.
Larry Williams, an advisor in state Representa-
tive Janet Adkins' office, put it like this: "The way
they're dividing up the money, it's a larger percent-
age of a smaller pie, but we don't know how much
the pie is going to change."
An analysis by House staff estimated that SCOP
funding would double from about $20 million to
$40 million.
Mr. Williams questioned the estimate's reliabil-
ity, saying, 'Those are based on revenue estimates
that are only good for two years or so. Who knows
what they will be in 2014? It's anybody's guess."
The other road grant program the Small
County Road Assistance Program or SCRAP was
defunded for the next two years during the last leg-
islative session. It's expected to return in the 2011-12
fiscal year.
The state's budget runs from July i to June 30.


Where's the money gone?
What follows is a chronological list of the various
road improvement projects completed via SCRAP
and SCOP funding.
SCOP has been unfunded for four years since it
began and has totaled more than $5.1 million.
2001-02
$431,250 on CR 229 from US 90 to 3 miles north
of Sanderson.
2002-03 through 2004-05 not funded.
2005-06
$270,508 on CR 123 from Deck Mann Road to
SR to/US 90.
2007-08 not funded.

The Macclenny Fire Depart-
ment will partner with Lake City
Community College to assist the
school in its firefighter certifica-
tion program, specifically by al-
lowing students and instructors
use of department facilities.
Macclenny commissioners
approved an agreement between
the department and college the
evening of December 8 after be-
ing assured by Fire Chief Buddy
Dugger it won't increase the cost
of the city's workman's compen-
sation or liability insurance.
Rather, the agreement re-
quires the college to have at least
$1 million in liability insurance
for students and teachers while
performing their duties at city
facilities.
Mr. Dugger said it's possible
city firefighters could be hired
as instructors in the training
programs, and that the college's
insurance policies would cover
them in that instance.
The board also presented
"Golden Heart" awards to a
handful of businesses and other
groups who donated to the fire
department's annual Christmas
for Kids toy drive, which is ex-
pected to distribute gifts to more
than 250 needy children this
year.
Walmart and its distribution
center, Phantom Fireworks, the


Moose Lodge, Calendar's Piz-
zeria and Sports Bar, the county
fire department and the city were
recognized for chipping in gifts
or monetary donations.
Eva Mathis, Tia Crews and
Stacy Mills were also cited for
organizing the effort.
In other business:
The commission approved
three ordinance changes, one
on final reading and two on first
reading, but all defining what
constitutes a private street eligi-
ble for building permits and giv-
ing the city manager the author-
ity to approve such streets.
The separate amendments
were needed to address three dif-
ferent areas in the city's code that
reference streets, advised City
Attorney Frank Maloney.
The board also agreed to pay
a $5040 share of Tallahassee lob-
byist Chris Doolin's consulting
fees, which amounts to about 20
percent of his annual contract.
The county funds the remaining
portion.
Commissioner Dr. Richard
Johnson was recognized with a
framed certificate and pin de-
noting 20 years of service to the
board from the Florida League of
Cities. Mayor Dr. Gary Dopson
was also presented his 3o-year
pin by fellow commissioner Ver-
non Bennett.
"I don't think if we searched
the state over, we could find a
better mayor," Mr. Bennett said.

Sheriff Joey Dobson informed
sheriffs office employees last
week that jail worker furloughs
would continue into the first
quarter of 2010.
"The projection is still not
there," he said about the expected
number of inmates from Immi-
gration and Customs Enforce-
ment, or ICE, during a monthly
staff meeting December 4.
Inmate counts for the fed-
eral agency started off high in the
beginning of November before
dropping off sharply, said Mr.
Dobson.
"We don't really know or un-
derstand why," he said, adding
later that part of the problem has
been the slow completion of video
court facilities by Verizon.
They're expected for comple-
tion in mid-December.
Without the video capability,
ICE inmates have to be physi-
cally transported by the agency
to properly equipped facilities in
Orlando. There they communi-
cate remotely with court officials
in Pompano Beach, Fla.
One consolation was that fur-
loughed officers are being trained
to do the transports themselves,
with payment coming from a con-
tract with ICE.
"I know it seems like we're
always waiting on a date, and we
are, but we're confident we will
get there," the sheriff said.
Though he couldn't say exactly
how long the furloughs will last,
Mr. Dobson pledged to re-evalu-
ate the need for such measures
monthly.
The new jail's 92 employees
have been required to take off
one day without pay per pay pe-
riod since late October, which will
continue. The department's ad-

estimated the payroll savings at

Last week's meeting also in-
cluded the judging for the de-
partment's annual charity beard
growing contest to benefit Hub-
bard House for abused women.
Three officers were recognized
for having the fullest beard, best
goatee and neatest beard, respec-
tively, of 28 employees who grew
out their facial hair during No-

most of the year, but had the op-
portunity to donate $20 a month
to Hubbard House for the privi-

'The beards do have to go to-

be clean shaven in the morning
for the [Christmas] parade."
The benefit raised $1000 for
the women's shelter.
Two employees who organized
a Thanksgiving basket drive for
21 needy families were also rec-
ognized.

joined by his family for lunch and
a break from the 50-degree tem-

Though the parade didn't start
until after dark, many came out
to enjoy the daytime festivities
including booths from local busi-
nesses, community groups and
vendors; children's activities like
bounce houses, pony rides and a
wall climb; plus music and dance

"We've been telling everybody

fore the celebration. The eatery
also featured an Angel Tree where
customers found the names of 31
area youths accepting Christmas

The parade itself included
about 1oo different floats an-
chored by Santa Clause traveling
inside the lift of a fire truck and
hoisted above attendees, who
lined both sides of Macclenny

Coping with murder of child
>jrrr noun_ 1


(rrou Channel 4 and spoke about the
need to challenge one's self to be
motivated for a cause.
She has traveled to Tallahas-
see to meet Governor Charlie
Crist and become acquainted
with Dick Morris of Fox News.
She has also begun working with
the Justice Coalition and most
important, as part of her healing
process, speaking publicly about
her daughter's murder.
"Deanna was a special, won-
derful person. She deserves to
be remembered," said Ms. Red-
mon.
Just after midnight on No-
vember 16, 2007, Ms. Redmon
received a phone call informing
her that Deanna, who lived in the
small town of Jennings, Loui-
siana, was missing. She was a
divorced mother of three and 40
years old.
David Troy Stelly, Deanna's
estranged boyfriend, four days
later confessed to her murder.
Following his directions, sheriffs
deputies found Deanna's body in
a barn 25 miles outside the town.
She had been badly beaten and
shot four times in the head.
Neighbors of the couple inter-
viewed during the investigation
had heard them arguing just days
prior to Deanna's disappearance
and said Stelly shouted, "If I can't
have you, no one will!"
Police allowed Ms. Redmon
and several of her children to go
to the barn after Deanna's body
was found. She remembers be-
ing so overcome with emotion
that she laid on the ground still
stained with her daughter's blood
and, "screamed from the pit of
my soul."
Deanna's body was flown
back to Macclenny. A favorite
pink blanket covered her white
coffin before she was laid to rest
in Macedonia Cemetery. Today
that blanket is in Ms. Redmon's
home, resting on a small red
rocking chair that belonged to
Deanna as a child.
In the two years since the loss
of her daughter, Ms. Redmon
admits she hasn't wanted to go
on. She wasn't suicidal, but she
didn't want to live.
Finally, her surviving sons
and daughters confronted their
mother with the fact that al-
though Deanna was gone, there
were still five other children and
who needed her. Shortly after,
she had an epiphany which she
remembered like this:
"One night I suddenly real-
ized that God's only son was
taken from him also and brutally
murdered on the cross. God had
forgiven me and all mankind for
that act. Who was I now to harbor


unforgiveness of another?"
Finding the courage to forgive
was the act that finally helped
Ms. Redmon begin to let go of the
horror, grief and guilt that had
claimed her existence. On March
26, 2009, she faced David Troy
Stelly in prison and told him she
forgave him and extended to him
God's grace.
That done, she felt she could fi-
nally begin the slow but sure pro-
cess of healing. Suddenly people
started to appear in her life who
bolstered her inner strength and
helped her once again get about
the business of living.
At the Council on Aging, she
met Mary Shepherd, who quickly
become a close friend. Mary and
her husband Harry began taking
her to church. They prayed for
and ministered to her frequent-
ly.
Pastor Bridges was so moved
by her experiences he asked per-
mission to write her story. They
began meeting and talking to-
gether.
In September, she traveled
with a dozen other folks from
Macclenny to participate in the
National Tea Party where she
found herself among like-minded
Americans who'd descended on
Washington for the event.
Then she joined the Baker
County Republican Woman's
Club and was soon attending po-
litical rallies in Jacksonville and
traveling to Orlando for the state
convention.
Throughout, she battled epi-
sodes of depression, but each


time she sank, her new circle of
friends pulled her back up.
Today, Ms. Redmon visits
Deanna's grave often. She main-
tains it lovingly, raking its white
sand into pleasing patterns. The
last thing she does before she
leaves is to press her hand print
into the sand, then place two
pieces of her daughter's favor-
ite candy in the depression: a
Hershey's Kiss and a York Pep-
permint Patty.
For other people who have
experienced the tragic loss of a
loved one, Ms. Redmon has some
sage advice.
"Don't waste your life dwelling
on the way you lost your loved
one. How they died does not de-
fine who they were in life," she
said. "Instead celebrate the times
you shared, how you laughed
with them, held them, watched
the sun set or listened to it rain.
Then, get out and do something
to honor their memory."
Although the brutal, senseless
murder of her beloved daughter
is something she will never un-
derstand, Ms. Redmon is grate-
ful for the three grandchildren
Deanna left behind. In them she
still sees the daughter who is no
longer here.
She says her family is why she
keeps breathing. Her journey is
hard, but her Heavenly Father
is restoring her joy. "He's turn-
ing my mourning into dancing,"
she said. "I've learned that if you
have a need, the best way to fill
it is to give to someone else who
also has that need."

Storm damage grant has limited


use in Macclenny, Glen St. Mary


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
Officials from the county's
three local governments con-
vened the morning of December
8 to decide how to spend a close
to $400,000 disaster recovery
grant to repair damage sustained
during last year's Tropical Storm
Fay.
Finding projects that meet
the one-time grant's narrow
criteria that damage must be
documented and not yet repaired
- wasn't easy.
The county has planned to
combine some of the cash with
about $213,000 it's had since
2001 to pave as much of trouble-
some Cow Pen Road as possible.
But, per grant requirements,
the $395,781 from the US De-
partment of Housing and Urban
Development's [HUD] Commu-
nity Development Block Grant
[CDBG] program must be spent
at the discretion of the Town of
Glen St. Mary and City of Mac-
clenny as well as the county.
Officials from Glen and the
city didn't object to the Cow Pen
project or another recommended
by the county's road department
director paving Buck Starling
Road, located east of S. 6th St.
behind the Winn Dixie shopping
center.
"The permitting's done and
we've had damage there," said
Robert Fletcher, the road depart-
ment director.
Though the grant could also
be used for repairing homes
and businesses, officials weren't
aware of any damage in the storm
that remained in disrepair.
Adam Faircloth, the county's
emergency management direc-
tor, said about 30 homes were
flooded during the May 2008
drenching.
"Not all of those people quali-
fied for FEMA assistance, but
those that didn't have already
done whatever mitigation they
needed to do," he said.

pain pills


A campus deputy filed crimi-
nal complaints against three mi-
nor age students at Baker County
High School on December 4 after
they admitted to snorting residue
from several pulverized prescrip-
tion pills in a bathroom on cam-
pus.
Sgt. Thomas Dyal said school
principal Thomas Hill received a
report that the students, ages 15
and 16, were seen in a girls' bath-
room that morning before lo:oo.
During a subsequent interview,
the 15-year-old a male student
- admitted taking the drugs from
his father's medicine cabinet and
smashing them into a powdery
residue, some of which was later
found on a metal surface in the
bathroom.
The students apparently suf-
fered no ill-effects from the inges-
tion, though they were checked
out at the Fraser Hospital emer-
gency room as a precaution.
One of the girls told Sgt. Dyal
they had done the same thing the
previous day, and the other girl
said she had taken one of the pills
but had not snorted the combina-
tion.
The father of the male student
brought his prescriptions to the
hospital. They included a station
drug for cholesterol and pain re-
lievers.
The complaints are for felony
drug possession and the state
attorney's office will decide on
prosecution.
In other arrests, a Jackson-
ville woman visiting an inmate
at Baker Correctional near Olus-
tee on December 5 was charged
with misdemeanor possession of
marijuana and packaging it as if
she intended to smuggle it into
the prison.
Officer J.N. Livingston of the
prison staff said a drug-sniffing
canine alerted to the presence of
drugs in the trunk of a car enter-
ing the grounds. Donisha Harold,
21, allegedly admitted the drug
was in her purse stored in the
trunk.
The arrest took place just be-
fore noon.
A Macclenny man was ar-
rested for possession of drug
paraphernalia and driving on a
suspended license after he was
pulled over on South Boulevard
late on December 3.
Deputy Jeffrey Shouse said he
was aware Melvin Mann, 27, did
not have a license when he spot-
ted him about 11:15 at the wheel
of a 1996 Chevrolet SUV. Mr.
Mann quickly pulled to the rear
of a residence and exited the ve-
hicle. Passenger William Hand,
35, of Macclenny, who also does
not have a valid license, told
Deputy Shouse his companion
was driving.
Mr. Mann's license had been
suspended as an habitual of-
fender.
Deputy Shouse filed the sec-
ond charge after finding steel
wool commonly used in smoking
crack and a plastic bag with resi-
due inside the vehicle.
Kenneth Burnette, 40, of St.
George, Ga. was jailed for disor-
derly intoxication the evening
of December 5 after creating a
disturbance outside the Kanga-
roo store across from the county
courthouse.
Deputy Matt Riegel said he
was summoned because Mr.
Burnette was cursing loudly and
making sexually suggestive com-
ments to people gathered in the
proximity of the store to watch
the annual Christmas parade
downtown.
A second charge of resisting
arrest without violence was add-
ed because Mr. Burnette resisted
being handcuffed, then cursed
and threatened the officer.

A tree filled with angels is help-

will ensure that 31 needy kids get
something special for Christmas
this year.
According to Calvin Work,
co-owner of Calendar's Restau-
rant in downtown Macclenny,
customers have been asking him
for the last couple of years if any
business in town sponsored an
Angel Tree.
He didn't know of one and
decided this year it might be a
worthwhile project.
"We knew we wanted to do it,
but weren't sure quite how to go
about it," he said. "Mostly, we
weren't sure how to identify the
kids that could most benefit from
it."
Knowing the City of Macclen-
ny fire department sponsored
the Christmas

each year, he
contacted them
for guidance. He
was referred to
city hall, which
provided him with
a list of 31 chil-

M1 the holidays
The Baker County sheriffs
department is urging area se-
nior citizens to take precautions
during the upcoming Christmas
and New Year holiday periods.
Seniors are urged to avoid
driving at night, and to keep
doors and windows locked; park
as close as you can to your des-
tination; avoid leaving valuables
on your car; have keys in hand
before approaching your car;
and do not approach your car
if there are suspicious people in
the immediate area.
If you shop, do so during day-
light hours, avoid wearing ex-
pensive jewelry and avoid over-
loading yourself with packages.
While at home, be extra cau-
tious about locking doors when
leaving; have a neighbor watch
your house if you are gone for an
extended time; leave your radio
or TV on and never open a door
to strangers. At this time of year,
criminals often pose as delivery
people.

The St. Johns River Water
Management District will con-
tinue its evaluation of potential
environmental effects of river wa-
ter withdrawals until mid-2011 to
provide additional opportunity to
interact with outside experts, in-
clude peer review comments and
enhance scientific models.
In its quarterly update today
to the District's Governing Board
on the comprehensive study,
District project team leaders said
that extending the completion of
the St. Johns River Water Supply
Impact Study by seven months
will ultimately ensure an even
higher quality work product.
The prestigious National Re-
search Council (NRC) has been
actively involved in peer review
of the study, and NRC input has
allowed the District to enhance
the study through additional
data collection and analysis, and
enhanced modeling.
"We have appreciated the op-
portunity to interact with the
NRC, and their input is allow-
ing us to create a stronger work
product," said Tom Bartol, proj-
ect manager for the study and
director of the Division of Water
Supply Management. "It's criti-
cal that we are flexible with this


study as it evolves to ensure that
we end up with a comprehensive
assessment based on sound sci-
ence."
Although completion of the
final report will be extended to
mid-2011, the core findings from
the study are scheduled to be
completed and provided to the
public and stakeholders in the
fall of 2010, which is similar to
the current schedule. The sched-
ule extension allows opportunity
for input from stakeholders and
the public prior to preparation of
the detailed final report.
The District launched the
study in the fall of 2007 to further
existing science on potential en-
vironmental effects of proposed
river water withdrawals on the
biological and water resources of
the St. Johns River.

GailardRoggow
ofStarke dies at 51

complications of Hepatitis C. He
was born in Fayetteville, NC on
October 22, 1958 to Ida Beaird
and Gailard William Roggow
Sr.
Mr. Roggow served 21 honor-
able years in the Navy and was
an accomplished cabinet maker
and artistic boat builder. He lit
up a room with his smile, and
thrived on history, science, and
knowledge. First a son, then a
husband, a father, and finally a
grandfather, he was also a pro-
tector, a provider and a man
unafraid to dream and brave
enough to fight even if it was for
just one more day with his fam-
ily. Although his body has left
this earth his spirit is with us
forever.
Survivors include his loving
wife of 33 years, Barbara Rog-
gow of Starke; loving daughter

They say memories are golden,
well maybe that is true. We
never wanted memories, we
only wanted you. A million
times we cried. If love alone
could have saved you, you nev-
er would have died. In life we
loved you dearly, in death we
love you still. In our hearts you
hold a place no one else can fill.
If tears could build a stairway,
a heartache a lane, we would
walk the path to Heaven and
bring you back again. Our fam-
ily chain is broken, but we will
meet again "One sweet day."
IN OUR BROKEN HEARTS FOREVER,
LOVE,
MAMA AND HEATHER

I hope you have a great
birthday in heaven and
always remember that I am

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

God and His Angel,
Miss Ann

On November 18,1954, God
had in Heaven an Angel. And
then on November 19,1954,
Sara Ann Fish was born. And
the earth had an Angel. God
had a memory.
One day at Taylor School, out
on the recess playground, Rod
saw an Angel and had a dream.
The Angel noticed Rod, and the
dream came true.
Then one day in High School
the Angel told Rod she was for
him and he was for her. God in
Heaven still had a memory.
For 54 years, a little Heaven on
earth was made and we had an
Angelfrom Heaven.
And then on December 10,
2007, God made a callfrom
above. Heaven needed an-
other Angel. Sara Ann Taylor
was called to be with God in
Heaven.
Heaven had an Angel. We have
a memory.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


6th grade teacher rockets


students' Math test scores


Honored with 80 other top achievers


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Tara Rhoden, a sixth grade
math teacher at Baker County
Middle School, was among 81
Florida teachers who were re-
cently recognized for helping
their students achieve the larg-
est FCAT math score gains in the
state.
Even
more
notable
is that
Ms. Rho-
den was
one of
only five
teachers
to at-
tain such
progress
in three

"The Tra Rhna rn ,,ith lJ

SR


tabu-
lated by the University of Flor-
ida and I was told my students
achieved scores 1.5 times higher
than any others in the state," she
said.
Middle school principal David
Davis accompanied Ms. Rhoden
and her husband to an awards
ceremony hosted by the Founda-
tion for Excellence in Education
at the Rosen Hotel in Orlando on
December 5 where she and other
teachers were honored by two-
term former governor Jeb Bush,
who established the non-profit
foundation in 2007.
All teachers received a $1ooo
prize, along with a cruise to the
destination of their choice, free
passes to Disney World and Uni-
versal Studios and a signed book
by Ron Clark, a nationally-known
educator, author and motivation-
al speaker.
Because of her students' high
scores in three categories, Ms.
Rhoden also received a Smart
Board and a family pass to Ken-
nedy Space Center to witness a
space shuttle launch.
None of the teachers, accord-
ing to Ms. Rhoden, knew the na-
ture of the gifts prior to the cer-
emony, so it was a huge surprise
for everyone.
"It was such an amazing, ex-
traordinary experience," she
said.
Before the awards ceremony,
Ms. Rhoden dined with Florida's
former lieutenant governor Toni


Jennings and greatly enjoyed the
presentation by Mr. Clark. How-
ever, meeting the former gover-
nor was the highlight.
"Jeb Bush is a very down-to
earth, funny man and I never knew
that about him," she said. "Here
we are at this high-class awards
ceremony and he just plops down
on his knees on the stage to have
his photograph made with one of
the teach-
ers who
was very
short. I'll
never for-
get that."
Ms.
Rhoden
attributes
her stu-
dents'
success
largely to
trial and
error and
having
good role
models.
"Early
on, I was
able to

"I took to it and just kept go-
ing," she said.
After graduating from the
University of North Florida, she
began teaching at Baker County
Middle School where she has
been for the last six years. In
2007 she earned her master's de-
gree in mathematics from Florida
A&M in Tallahassee.
Ms. Rhoden also participates
in a new program at the middle
school called Saturday Blitz.
Math teachers make themselves
available on certain Saturdays
leading up to FCAT for review
and remedial instruction. The
blitz is open to any student who
needs or wants to take advantage
of the opportunity to improve
their performance.
"The awards ceremony was
like an out-of-body experience,"
said Ms. Rhoden. "I still can't

teachers
at work, Lisa Mobley and Cathy
Adams. I tried to absorb all I
could about their teaching meth-
ods and classroom management
style," she said.
Today, her approach includes
a few fundamental things, the
most important of which is con-
sistency.
"A consistent approach works
well," she said. "I keep my classes
structured and routine, not to the
point of boredom, but so that stu-
dents are focused and know what
to expect."
Within that structure, stu-
dents are exposed to the dynam-
ics of mathematical rules and
concepts. Over time, they master
a set of rhymes that help them
commit key mathematical rules
to memory so they can easily
call them up when needed. For
example: When a number and a
letter are side by side, it means
that you will multiply.
Open communication is also
a key factor and specific blocks
of time during the lesson are de-
voted to student questions.
Examples of problems are
posted on large charts around
the room so that students always
have a point of reference. If they
get stumped, especially during
a test, locating the example can
help them work through a similar
problem until they conquer it.
Ms. Rhoden always liked
math, even as a child. She knew
by sixth grade it was the path she
would follow.

FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
One day back in the mid 1960s,
Macclenny resident George
"Dub" Sands was out at Wood-
lawn Cemetery talking to Erland
Fraser, the grounds keeper.
As he spoke with Mr. Fraser
he took notice of the aging wind-
mill that pumped water for the
cemetery's maintenance. He also
noticed that people had been us-
ing it for target practice.
"Those boys had about shot it
up," said Mr. Sands. "Some of the
propeller blades had holes clean
through 'em. I decided I might
want to do something about it."
So he inquired about the
windmill's fate, and according to
Mr. Sands, the following conver-
sation took place.
"Erland, whatcha' gonna do
with that old windmill? These
boys around here are shooting'
holes all through the thing."
"Well, why do you ask?" Mr.
Fraser said.
"'Cause I'll buy it. How much
money would it take?"
"We'll I don't know. I'll have to
think about it."
"Think about it? Why you got-
ta do that? I thought you was in
charge. How much money would
it take?" Mr. Sands asked. "I got
40 dollars in my pocket. Will
you take 40 dollars for it and I'll
stop all this and send my people
out here and move it away from
here?"
Mr. Fraser relented and Mr.
Sands bought the windmill.
"It cost me $50 to move the
thing," he recalled.
The windmill was disas-
sembled and transported to his
property off SR 121just south of
the Georgia line. Then he began
reconstructing it near the pond
just outside his home. The tank,
he estimated, would hold close to

Lady Cats rebound after 1st loss


BOB GERARD
SPORTS WRITER
The Lady Wildcats suffered
their first loss of the season
against a physical Columbia High
team, but bounced back to beat
Yulee by 12 points to run their
record to 5-1.
The Lady Cats fell to Columbia
High 52-29 on December 1 as the
Tigers exploded for a 17-7 first
half. The Lady Cats could not get
back in the game after that and
didn't have a player in double fig-
ures for the night.
The pace slowed a little in the
second period, but the Tigers still
held a 34-16 lead at the half. It
didn't get much better as CHS
more than doubled the Lady
Wildcats' scoring in both the
third and fourth quarters.
"We played Columbia pretty
well for about two-and-a-half
periods, then we became careless
with the ball and lazy on defense,
which allowed them to score a lot
of easy baskets in a hurry," said
head coach Franklin Griffis. "We
have to learn to play an entire
game. The game of basketball
can change momentum in a hur-
ry, which is what happened with
Columbia."
Destiny de la Pena led the
Wildcats with 8 points. Kiara
Battles had 5 points and 9 re-
bounds while Meagan O'Steen
posted 8 rebounds.
The Lady Cats came back big
on December 4, defeating Yulee
by 12 points.
The Cats were led by de la
Pena's 15 points and though Yu-
lee held a 3-point lead at the end

The Wildcat basketball team
opened its season with a home
and away split this past weekend.
The Cats defeated Baldwin on
the road but lost to Ridgeview in
their home opener.
The Cats defeated Baldwin 64-
53 on Friday night in Baldwin,
and got a big game from Chris
McCray. He led all scorers with
21 points and was accurate from
inside and out contributing four
long range three-pointers.
The Cats pretty much led from

it close in the first half. BCHS
kept them at bay with some time-
ly three-pointers from McCray
and Marcelle Gayden.
The second half was more of
the same. The Cats again kept the
Indians at arm's length but didn't
have any big runs to pull away.
They just slowly amassed enough


several girls having the
abilityto score and play
defense. Yulee relies on
one or two girls to pro-
duce their points," said
the coach.
The girls started
facing three district
opponents this week
beginning Tuesday with Baldwin.
Results for that game were not
available by press time. BCHS
will host Bishop Snyder Thurs-
day, December o1, at 6:00 pm


and West Nassau the following
night at 7:30 pm.
"I think that all of the teams
in our district will be competitive
with each other," Griffis said. "I
expect hard-fought games with
each of them. It will show us as
we go into the holiday break how
we stand in the district and what
we need to focus on for the sec-
ond half of the season. It should
be interesting."

with oachns

I would like to close out a tre-
mendous Wildcat football sea-
son by thanking some people
that made it such a
great year. I am cer-
tain I will miss some-
one important if I call
everyone's name, so
I will just make some
blanket statements.
First, thanks to all
the people in this com-
munity who joined
our booster club. In
tough economic times,
we raised more money
than any other year Coach B
thus far, and that is
a tribute to the over-
whelming love this community
has for its Wildcats. Special
thanks to club officers for their
dedication to our kids: Fred
Munson, president, Trek Mc-
Cullough, vice-president, Brian
Smallwood, treasurer, and Kelly
Smallwood, secretary.
They have done an unbeliev-
able job over the past four years
and this program would not be
anywhere near the quality it has
been without their unwavering
support.
To all the fans, it has been
one heck of a ride from o-lo just
four years ago to where we are
now. We have seen this program
grow every year to new heights
and because of our tremendous
fans we have built a reputa-
tion as one of the best followings
of any school in the state. This
was evident last week as we had
such an unbelievable following
at Godby. You are truly amazing
and our team thanks you for all
your support.
To all who fed us meals this
year, thank you from the bottom
of our heart beginning with
Tim Sweat and Dale Johnson,
who organized all of the break-
fasts and pre-game meals, to all
of the churches and sponsors
who fed us. Every year it amazes
me even more to see the way
all of you take care of our boys
and are always there when we
need you.
To the administration in Bak-
er County and [athletic director]
Melody Coggin, without your
total dedication to our team, we
could never be successful. We
have a great school system that


begins with Mrs. Sherrie Rauler-
son and filters down all the way
through our schools. Thank you
for making 2009 a great year.
To Sheriff Joey Dob-
son and his staff, it has been
exciting. Words will never ex-
press my sincere gratitude for
all you do for us throughout the
year and this year was the best
ever. Thank you for taking care
of us every week and always be-
ing there for the Cats.
Without my players'
parents, nothingwould
be possible. They al-
lowed me to take their
sons and keep them as
my own over the past
four years and I hope
all of you are proud of
the men I have sent
back to you. For those
who have endured me
for four years I hope
you are proud of what
by Johns your sons have accom-
plished.
For those who are
just beginning, we have huge
shoes to fill. I am certain we can
continue this ride for as long as
you will support what we are do-
ing.
Thank you to all my coaches
and their wives. No one really
knows how much time these
men put into this program, but
more than that, it is how much
love and dedication they give
these young players that makes
this program what it is today. So
much time spent away from
their families to make it one of
the best in the state and I want
to thank both them and their
families for their unwavering
dedication to both me and the
Wildcats.
Thanks also to my wife Chev-
on for another year of wonder-
ful support. She is my strength
and my vision and without her I
could not do what I love to do. I
love her and thank her for being
there for me.
When all eyes are on the deci-
sions we make on Friday nights
and the "pretend" Wildcat fans
begin to call for us, I know how
much work has gone into every
week's preparations and I am
proud to know that we have won
many games "against all the
odds."
Finally, thanks to my
players. You have given me four
years of terrific football and we
are not done yet. To have play-
ers who will totally commit to
doing everything I have asked
has been unbelievable and I
will always remember the great
times we have had together.
