BCDC,

city deal

for utility

expansion
Instead of looking to bor-
row about $370,000 from the
county, the Baker Correc-
tional Development Corpora-
tion (BCDC) is now asking for
roughly $195,000 to upgrade
water and
sewer
utilities By
along the Joel
west side
of CR Addington
228.
T h e Press Staff
project
consists of running new 8-inch
lines from the intersection with
SR 121 south to existing 6-
inch lines just north of Linda
Street.
The improvement will in-
crease capacity for the BCDC
propertyojust north of the city
off CR 228, which will include
the new jail and sheriff's com-,
plex. new county administra-
tion building, and three sites
the corporation hopes to'sell
for private development.
The upgrade will also shore-
up service in the northern city
by creating a looped circuit of
flow from North Boulevard to
the intersection of SR 121 and
CR228.
"That. will help us," said
Assistant City Manager Roger
Yarborough.
He said the loop will ensure
water is coming to that area
from two directions, thereby
offering a backup if flow is in-
terrupted at either end.
For doing that, the city has
agreed to subtract the cost of
the upgrades which is the
$195,000 loan expected from
Baker County from the hon-'
profit corporation's $358,000
line capacity fees, leaving a
difference of $163,000.
Line fees have been assessed
on all new development since
approved by city commission-
ers in April 2007. They're used
to upgrade lines citywide to en-
sure the burden of new. growth
is not carried by existing cus-
tomers.
Originally, the corpora-
tion intended to borrow about
$370,000 to run lines along
the east side of CR 228 to
North Boulevard, which also
would've completed the loop
and reduced its line capacity
fees to zero.

16-year-old sentenced as

adu//f killed abusive dad
A Sanderson teenager who shot and killed his father with a cross-
bow nearly one year ago drew a five-year state prison sentence fol-
lowed by a ten-year probation.
Brian Adam Cranford, now 16, received the sentence in circuit
court on November 24 following a plea deal worked out the past few
weeks between the prosecutor and his public defender. Circuit Judge
Phyllis Rosier rejected an earlier deal that would have imposed ju-
venile sanctions on the defendant, instead opting for him being sen-
tenced as an adult because of the nature of the crime.
Young Cranford will be sent later this week to a-facility' for other
young offenders sentenced as adults.
The 5'2" defendant pleaded to manslaughter, a second-degree
felony, in the death of his father'David Cranford, whose body was
found lying in the living room of a vacant trailer beside their resi -
dence off CR 127 the morning of December 3, 2007. Mr. Cranford
was two weeks shy of his 57th birthday.
He also pleaded guilty to burglary of the residence of Tommy
Simmons in September of last year. The state voided a marijuana
possession charge from when Cranford was a student at Baker Coun-
ty Middle School, along with an attempted:burglary and criminal
mischief counts.
Assistant .State Attorney Patrick McKlintock said the state was
prepared to prove that Adam Cranford shot his father and left him to
die. A county deputy responding to the scene the following morning
found the father's body lying near a front door w ith a hunting- arrow
protruding from his back. It had entered through the abdomen. "*

Sheriff resigns
BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
After being re-elected Baker Count
Sheriff earlier this month, Joey Dobson
will resign temporarily for 30 days be-
ginning November 30 due to a quirk in
Florida Retirement System's (FRS. de-
ferred retirement guidelines.
"I'm not going away," he said "But
I'll not be functioning as sheriff. The law
says I can't act as sheriff in any capac-
ity."
Mr. Dobson entered the state's De-
ferred Retirement Option Program


...until January 6th

(DROP) in September 2004 so he could
continue working earning his now
$103,835 annual salary while still ac-
cumulating retirement benefits, which he
became eligible for after 30 years of em-
ployment with agencies under FRS.
He's held a number of positions with
the state since the 1970s including deputy
sheriff, drug counselor, state attorney's of-
fice investigator, and the elected office of
Clerk of Court.
But DROP rules require that partici-

Five years for manslaughter fail corporation

to telephone several friends to.
report his father',as missing. A
subsequent investigation showed
the defendant's original stor)
that his father accidentally shot
himself after leaving their resi-
dence that evening did not hold
up under questioning.
Initially, Adam Cranford
told police he searched the area
around the residence, including
a pond, after his father failed to
return after saying he was going
to apply a lubricant to the hunt-
ing arrows. Evidence suggests
he failed to inform anyone of.
the situation until he phoned his
brother in Jacksonville the fol-
lowing morning.
"Investigators Steve Harvey
and Brad Dougherty did an ex-
cellent job," commented pros-
ecutor McKlintock, who inher-
ited the case from predecessor
Mel Bessinger. "I felt very con-
fident that we could have taken
the case in front of a jury and got
the conviction."
Mr. McKlintock also ar-
gued for the adult sanctions in
the sentence because of Adam
Cranford's behavior in the hours
following the shooting.
"Juvenile sanctions were not
sufficient in this case. He had an
obligation to get his father help,
and in failing to do so they could
hardly argue that it was an acci-
dent," added the prosecutor.
Court records suggest the fa-
ther and son had a stormy and
sometimes abusive relation-
ship over the years, fueled by
Mr. Cranford's alcoholism. The
defendant's mother lives in the
Pensacola area, and for most of
his life, Adam Cranford lived
with his father, who was dis-
abled.
The son was diagnosed with
ADHD (attention deficit hyper-
activity disorder) shortly after
they moved to Baker County
and was assigned to a special ed
curriculum. He began acting out
- mostly minor school infrac-
tions and was assigned to the
Alternative School for disruptive
students in 2004.
Several persons in that neigh-
borhood north of Sanderson
reported to police before the
shooting that young Cranford
could often be seen walking the
streets after dark, and he was a
suspect in other property crimes
besides the Simmons residence,
where he allegedly entered via
a window and awakened the


owner.
Judge Rosier imposed both
the prison time and probation
concurrently for both offenses.
Cranford will have to serve at
least 85 percent of the five years
before he is eligible for release.
Several family members in-
cluding his mother and paternal
grandmother were on hand for
the sentencing this week. No one
offered a. victim statement.

But due to fiber optic cables
running along that side of the
street, which would have made
the project even more expen-
sive, the upgrade was moved to
the west side of the street where
the city already had 1800 feet of
lines connecting to North Boule-
vard, Mr. Yarborough said.
The BCDC had already bud-
geted one year of line capacity
fees, which will cover the re-
maining $163,000, said Danny
Thomas, project manager for the
new jail.
"That's coming out of our op-
erating costs," he said.

Thanksgiving is an appro-
priate time to comment on the
slumping economy and its im-
pact on us as
individuals
and a com- IMPR
munity.
Let's start TI Mi
with the ob- JIM MC


what the-rest of the world has
that we make fools of ourselves
by complaining. Whether you
live in a sumptuous house with
acreage or a humble trailer in
the woods, you have the things
you need, or you have access to
them.
So enjoy Thanksgiving even
if you're nervous about what the
future holds. We all have plenty
of blessings to count, including
our ability to discern the differ-
ence between what we want and
what we need.


G


,'. vious: we
could be in
Baker County, Michigan.
Many of us small busi-
i ness people, those who work in
Jacksonville for banks, in manu-
i facturing and service industries
We're beginning to see crack-
ing plaster in the walls that hold
What we've become accustomed
to as a solid economy. You know,
steady jobs with regular pay in-
creases,' benefits, cheap money-
for housing and transportation.
The good times, we'll call them..
Many of us are (sensibly)
scaling back on Christmas," we're
unhappy about what's happened
to our modest stock portfolios
and not-so-modest retirement
accounts. We're happy about the
price of gas, but no one and I
mean no one believes that will'
stay the same. We keep a wary
eye on the pump price, aware
that it's half what it was three
months ago, but that many of us
don't have the money to go to the
places gasoline can take us.
Baker County is fortunate in
that it isn't tourist-dependent.
Florida, however, is a tourist des-
tination and numbers are bleak.
The wizards in Tallahassee are
now in good.company with other
states going broke because of
mandatQry spending running
'head-on, into' dwindling treastir-
ie s1 .. "'.. .. . .....
Baker County's share. of the
public purse is confined mostly
to the prison industry (we don't
call it "corrections" in this news-
paper for obvious reasons) and
the state mental hospital. Neither
are likely to sustain severe slash-
es from the budget knife as 2009
unfolds; they both deal in the
care and housing of people who
can't live outside confinement.
Look for a decline in available
funds for roads since they come
from gas taxes that are slid-
ing downward as the economy
worsens. The schools? Well, the
state pays most of the bills, so
we'll see what happens there as
new budgets are formulated next
summer.
They might have to trim some
of the fat in administrative and
clerical ranks, but they're not
going to close Baker County

Just as the spike in gas prices
and the meltdown of the credit

have been a
great lesson
AULEY in the basics
ofeconomics
to those who
pay attention, there are lessons to
be gleaned as the economy slows
and sputters in 2009.
Foremost, learn to live with


less. What you became used to
the past decade is no longer the
norm. Also, the fact that we're
gong to live with less isn't the re-
sult of rich people out to get us,
as some politicians would have
you believe. Other than money
from loans you made and the
respect and love you've justly
earned from family and friends,
you're not "owed" anything.
We all would do well to re-
member that, even in a "down"
economy, the things we have
available to us so far outpace


Glad to be here Ramo

Thanksgiving is the time of year to look back on all of those things
you are thankful for and to take stock. Though I'm not too terribly sen-
timental, I do have lots to be thankful for and am happy to share.them
with my readers.,
Then again, this is a humor column so I'm go-
ing to have to mix the humorous with the serious. 'm Vly S
I hope you can tell them apart.
Things I am thankful for: T
I am very thankful I am not a turkey living TH E MV
in Alaska. Last week, Gov. Sarah Palin was giv-
ing a speech at a turkey farm in Alaska. While the ROBERT
news people were filming her talking about the
economy and jobs, not six feet behind her was the
turkey farmer holding a bird by its feet and shoving its head down a
plastic cone into what looked like a wood chipper.
In Washington, in preparation for pardoning Alaska Sen. Ted Ste-
vens, Pres. Bush was pardoning Tom the turkey. Much easier being a
gobbler on the beltway than in the great Northwest. You betcha!
*, I'm thankful I am not a member of President-elect Obama's
economic team. With the economy in the shape it is, the new Prez is
proposing a stimulus package equal only to FDR's New Deal of the
1930s. If I were an economic advisor on Pres. Obama's short list I
would be hiding under my bed in hopes that when he knocked on my
door, the president-elect would think I was not at home. The only job
more thankless than that would be starting quarterback for the Detroit
Lions.
I'm thankful I teach at Baker County High School and not Kan- '
dahar High School in Afghanistan. Last week girls walking to school
were sprayed with acid. It seems Taliban sympathizers deal harshly
with young women who have the nerve to try and get an education.
I'm thankful I'm a Wildcat fan and not a fan of the Ocala Van-
guard Knights. Once again, the Wildcats had an outstanding season
under head coach Bobby Johns. Though the Cats lost to St. Augustine
in the playoffs they finished the season with a terrific 9-2 record. The
Knights, who BCHS played earlier in the season, were winless. Go
Cats.
I'm thankful I'm.at home with my friends and family. My good
friend Alana Harvey is living in Scotland. Thanksgiving is, of course,
an American holiday and none of the Thanksgiving traditions extend
across the Atlantic. We had hoped that we would be able to visit her for
Thanksgiving, but it didn't work out that way so she is having to fend
for herself, turkey-wise.
We got a rather sad photo from her the other day. She had expe-
rienced the first snowfall of the season and went outside and wrote
"Happy Thanksgiving from Scotland" in the snow. Thankfully, she has
found somewhere to have turkey and dressing for the holiday. I hope
it's not an Alaskan wood chipper turkey.
At the risk of sounding maudlin, I am thankful every day of where
I live and who I live with. I nioved to Baker County after I got mar-
ried and have been thankful ever since that I did. I've come to love the
place and people, and I am very happy here.
I've been to many more beautiful places in the US and around the
world, but it is always nice to come home to the friendly folks of Baker
County.
I am also blessed by my wife and three children. Wife Kelley and
children Sara, Dylan and Spencer are a constant joy in my life and
source of laughter and love.
Living with them is always an adventure. Kelley and I never really
know what they are going to do or say next. It could be an impromptu
concert from Dylan's band, Sara spontaneously singing show tunes on
the hearth like when she was four, or Spencer and his buddies piled


Despite downturn, most ofus still have everything we need


Sup on the couch watching sports, all talking at once while texting and
checking their MySpace pages.
Thanksgiving is an overlooked holiday in a lot of respects. It's be-
come about food and stocking up on great after-
Thanksgiving sales. It's a holiday lodged between
D E O F, the fun of Halloween and Christmas.
But it's also the perfect time to reflect on what it
A is that makes this life so special. The original Pil-
ATTERJ grims were thankful to have just made it through
the year 1621 in their new and often perilous
GERARD home. They were worried about what the future
would bring and wanted to take at least one day to
say thanks that they were alive and free.
In this difficult and uncertain economic time, Thanksgiving is the
perfect holiday to take stock and realize that no matter what, there are
things and people who bring love and joy to our lives year round. I
hope and trust you can say the same.
Happy Thanksgiving..

Newmans


helped out


many here

Dear Editor:
With the Thanksgiving sea-
son upon us, I would like to give
thanks to someone I feel blessed
to call my friend, and someone.
who also has been a friend to the
people of Baker County.
His name is Joe Newmans.
There are. a lot of families
in Baker County who have se-
cured good employment due to
Joe Newmans making a phone
call or personal contact on their
behalf. Others who have made
mistakes during their youth now
have a clean record due to the
counseling and compassion of
former sheriff Newmans.
Politics or status never be-
came an issue in Joe's decisions.
He was never vindictive because
of politics or problems in life.
Anyone could come to him at
anytime and receive help. No
one I know has ever done more
for so many people, never asking
anything in return.
No better time than Thanks-
giving to give thanks to Joe, who
though never seriously ill in his
life, is battling a cruel health
problem now.
We love you Joe, and appre-
ciate all you have done for us
through the years.

cy administering the benefits,
said his DROP accumulation,
if received as a lump sum pay-
ment, would amount to $311,173
minus income tax.
Per FRS guidelines, Mr. Dob-
son had to identify start and end
dates for his participation in
DROP when he signed on. "Be-
cause of the uncertainty of elec-
tions, I chose to designate this
currently served term, [January]
2004 to [November] 2008, as
my DROP contract period," the
sheriff stated in a press release
about the temporary resigna-
tion.
By cutting his DROP term
short of the five-year maximum
allowed, the sheriff will forgo
about 10 months of deferred
retirements benefits, or about
$57,000.
However, if he had enrolled
for the full five years, his DROP
participation would've ended in
September 2009, at which point
he would have to resign for 30
days, and run the unlikely risk of
a Republican governor not re-ap-
pointing him (a Democrat) after
that period ended.
By resigning at the end of his
current term, Mr. Dobson will
simply be sworn in January 6
as the newly-elected sheriff, and
once he retires, begin receiv-
ing his benefits, now estimated
about $5700 a month.
As of late Tuesday, Circuit
Judge Phyllis Rosier was ex-
pected to appoint Chief Gerald
Gonzalez as interim sheriff No-
vember 26.
"His knowledge of the op-
erations of the Baker County
Sheriff's Office and his supe-
rior ability to lead the agency in
my absence would best insure a
seamless continuity of services,"
the sheriff said in the prepared
statement.
Until Tuesday, the sheriff ex-
pected that Governor Charlie
Crist would appoint Lt. Gonza-
lez, the department's operational
chief, but he was informed the
law calls for a judge to do that.
A spokesman for Frederick
Smith,,the 4th Circuit's chief
judge in Gainesville, said he was


defending the area around his
home with a garden hose.
Mr. Barber said he was burn-
ing out a stump in his yard and
asked his 17-year-old nephew
to watch the fire while he went
to the store. "I told him not to
let it move more than two feet,"
said Mr. Barber, adding that
he'd "take the heat" because he
shouldn't have left the boy with
the fire.
Chief Dugger said although
, there is no burn-ban in effect, the
city requires permits for burning
outdoors, something Mr. Chupp
did not have.


reluctant to make the appoint-
ment because the situation was
too political.
Technically, the statute states
,. jd...gewi.ll appoint the replace-
ment once it is established that a
-sitting sheriff is not participating
in court sessions. Judge Rosier
will preside on the felony crimi-
nal bench through year's end,
then rotate to the civil bench to
be replaced by Judge Jim Nilon
of Gainesville, also a former
prosecutor.
Sheriff Dobson announced
the furlough during -a general
staff meeting on Tuesday after-
noon, opting to explain the situ-
ation to employees as a group
to avoid confusion and rumors
he was stepping down for other
reasons.
The same situation has arisen
with elected officials in .other
counties, most notably the sher-
iff in Wakulla County south of
Tallahassee. Closer to home, it
also affects the Alachua County
tax collector.
Macclenny City Manager
Gerald Dopson took a month off
several years ago when his DROP
term expired, and returned to of-
fice at the same salary.
Sheriff Dobson's new retire-
ment pay-in rate once he returns
will be 1.6 percent of gross pay,
down from the 3 percent rate in
Florida for high hazard law en-
forcement.


A Sanderson man already on
probation was sentenced No-
vember 24 to three years in state
prison in return for guilty pleas
to twin counts of grand theft.
Brandon Kyle Johnson was
already on a house arrest proba-
tion for burglary and grand theft
in 2006 cases when he and a co-
defendant stole portable lighting
from a contractor working on In-
terstate 10 earlier this year. They
were also charged with stealing
a parked tractor owned by the
county road department and
using 30 gallons of diesel fuel
while spreading limerock and
leveling dirt on private property.
Mr. Johnson will get credit
for 352 days already served in
county jail.
In other sentencing during
the regular court session that
day, Jamie D. Sigers of Sand-
erson was given 18 months in
prison after pleading guilty to
grand theft auto in June of this
year. Judge Phyllis Rosier gave
her credit of 121 days for time
served, and revoked an earlier
probation.
Marcus Miller pleaded
guilty to battery as a repeat of-
fender and kidnapping or entic-
ing a child for unlawful purpos-
es and was sentenced to a year
in county jail minus 169 days
already served.
He was also ordered to a year
on probation and to be evalu-
ated as a sex offender. A minor
child complained he improperly
touched her and attempted to
lure her into his vehicle while he
was visiting an acquaintance in
Macclenny last spring.
Judge Rosier ordered An-'
thony Davis to be on probation
for five years after he pleaded to
interference with child custody.
She withheld adjudication of
guilt and the defendant will be
allowed to petition for a shorter
probation later.
An 18-month probation and
50 hours of community service
were ordered for Jerry Deprat-
ter, who pleaded guilty to felony
battery as a repeat offender.


Dana Dugger will be on pro-
bation three years and pay $1370
in restitution in return for her
plea to welfare fraud. The judge
withheld adjudication of guilt
pending the defendant's compli-
ance with the sentence.
An arrest warrant, with
$20,000 bond was ordered in
the case of Marie Hamblin, who
failed to appear in court on twin
counts of forgery.
Several other defendants were
sentenced in criminal court ear-
lier this month, including Calvin
Harrison, who received one year
and one day in prison for sale and
possession of drugs. The term is
to run concurrent to a similar
one in Columbia County.
A similar prison term fol-
lowed by four years on drug-of-
fender probation were ordered
for Sylvia Cook in return for
guilty pleas to four counts of
drug sales and possession. She
received credit for.56 days al-
ready served.
A two-year probation was
ordered for Joshua Davis in re-
turn for a guilty plea to felony
driving while his license was
Suspended.
Mary Davis will be on" a
year's probation and the judge
.withheld adjudication of guilt
following her plea to aggravated
assault on police and two counts
of resisting arrest without vio-
lence.
John Bijeaux will be on
house arrest two years, followed
by a similar period on proba-
tion after he pleaded guilty to
felony grand theft, driving on a
suspended license, obstructing
justice by disguise and felony
battery by a repeat offender.
Guilty pleas on two of three
charges, petty theft and pos-
session of drug paraphernalia,
resulted in four years on drug-
offender probation for Daniel
Brown. The judge withheld ad-
judication on a count of resisting
police with violence.

Speaker at chamber event emphasizes

healthy bank-business communication


BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Communication.
It's a simple thing that can help a lot. And ac-
cording to Bennett Brown, president of American
Enterprise Bank, it's critical for small businesses
during hard economic times.
"We don't like surprises," the long-time bank-
er-said to about 40 people who'd gathered at the
Chamber of Com-
merce's Lunch and '
Learn event November
20 to hear about steps
that small businesses
can take to survive re-
cession.
Since loans are
often the life-blood
of small businesses,
Mr. Brown advised
keeping in close con- '. *
tact with the bank to
verify credit lines and
stressed the impor-
tance of communica-
tion, particularly when
the ability to make
payments begins to
weaken.
"Be proactive," he
said. "We don't work
by the hour. Guidance
and advice are free."
Communication is
also helpful when get-
ting customers to pay
their bills.
Mr. Brown said
businesses that gell BennettBrown of


known customers for a short-term revenue gain.
"You need to know what they're doing if you're go-
ing to lend them money," said Mr. Brown.
Although filing liens to eventually get paid may
become necessary, he recommended attempting
to settle uncollected debts out of court when at all
possible.
"Usually, when you get an attorney and they get
an attorney, it's the attorneys who win," said Mr.
Brown.
Beyond commu-
nication, he recom-
mended some "back
to the basics" tips to
increase the financial
viability of small busi-
nesses: be efficient,
strengthen your bal-
ance sheet, manage
risks, pay down debt,
and maintain liquid-

"Cash ain't cash un-
less it's cash," he said.
"Equipment isn't cash,

Following Mr.
Brown's presentation,
a number of atten-
dants said they found
the discussion infor-
mative.
"It was very enlight-
ening," said school

"He gave insight into

Hadpills


intendedfor


his mother

In this week's only drug ar-
rest, a visibly intoxicated man
was found in possession of xanax
pills prescribed to his mother
and arrested at a Sanderson
night spot commonly referred to
as the Juke on Friendship Place.
Deputy John Hardin was con-
ducting a property check of the
premises about 9:00 pm Novem-
ber 18 and saw John Bijeaux, 33,
of Sanderson and Wesley Whit-
field, 32, of Macclenny sitting in
a truck outside the bar. When he
approached, the officer said Mr.
Bijeaux quickly headed into the
Juke.
Mr. Whitfield advised he'd
driven there so Mr. Bijeaux
could sell some pills and buy
crack with the money. When the
suspect stumbled out of the bar,
Deputy Hardin. said he heard
what sounded like pills rattling
inside a bottle and that Mr. Bi-
jeaux appeared highly intoxi-
cated.
The officer asked the suspect
if he had any pills -and the man
pulled .them from his jacket, say-
ing he'd just picked them up for
his mother, whose name was on
the bottle. The deputy examined
the pills, counting 32, and not-
ing the prescription called for
60. That's when Mr. Bijeuax was
arrested for felony possession of
a controlled substance without a
prescription.
Deputy Hardin said that on
the way to jail, Mr. Bijeaux of-
fered to show him the man who
bought the pills if the officer let
him go free. "He has crack on
him," the suspect allegedly said:
'Due to Mr. Bijeaux's level of
intoxication, jail staff requested
that physicians at Fraser Memo-
rial medically, clear him. While
in the ER, the suspect became
belligerent, refusing treatment
and refusing to sign a statement
documenting his refusal of med-
ical care.'

Cremated remains remain


(from page 1)
$1800.
"In the event that doesn't hap-
pen with the others, we've talked
about disposal of them at the St.
Mary Shoals Park property," Mr.
Cone said.
There's also an old section of
the courthouse used to store re-
cords that's secure and dry. "If
they're not claimed, that's even-
tually where they'll end up," he
said.
Recovering autopsy and cre-
mation costs the latter runs
about $1000 per body when-
ever possible, is the county's
main concern.
Cadavers are usually kept at
the medical examiner's morgue
for two to three weeks, some-
times even months, while offi-
cials attempt to locate relatives
and persuade them to claim the
remains.
Even funeral homes, contract-
ed by local governments to per-
form indigent cremations, will
delay them and participate in the
search-for next of.kin in hopes of
finding someone willing to pay
for a proper burial.
Many jurisdictions have pub-
lic cemeteries where the indigent
are buried. Baker County has no
such facility.
Mr. Magliulo's remains were
the most recent to end up on
the shelf. He died at Macclenny
Nursing and Rehab in July.
Since that time, county ad-
ministrator Sara Little has con-
tacted two of his daughters,
telling them they can have the
remains .after reimbursing the
county for cremation.
"That was several months
ago and I haven't heard anything





netlT4U


from either one," said Ms. Little.
"From my conversation with
both of them, I think they are
arguing as to whom will get the
' remains."
Attempts to locate Mr. Chris-
tiansen's next of kin, however,
were unsuccessful.
His body was found partially
submerged in a watery ditch last
January. The 57-year-old Mac-
clenny resident was last seen at
a nearby bar and the medical
examiner's report noted no signs
of foul play.
Mr. Wilbanks' body was dis-
covered in bed by his brother in
April, yet no one has claimed his
remains either. He was 49 years
old and lived in Glen St. Mary.
"It doesn't happen that often,"
said Chief Gerald Gonzalez of
the sheriff's department.

An unidentified man got away with $190 after
robbing the mobile food trailer known as the Snack
Shack in Sanderson the evening of November 17.
An unknown object was held to the back of op-
erator Harold Lykins Jr., 51, after the suspect had
turned off the lights in the trailer. The victim was
ordered to the ground and the assailant threatened
to shoot him if he got up.
The robbery occurred about 7:00 pm after Mr.
Lykins took an order to Cuz's One Stop next door
at the corner of CR 229 and US 90. He returned
and began closing up when the lights went out and
an unfamiliar voice told him to turn around. The
victim told responding deputy Tony Norman that
all he saw of the suspect was his silhouette in the
doorway.
While on the ground, Mr. Lykins said he heard
the robber pry open the register and flee with the
cash. He continued to lay on the ground for about
five minutes before calling police.
Investigators, including a K-9 unit from Baker
Correctional, were summoned to the scene but
couldn't track the whereabouts of the suspect.
Neighbors were unable to provide any information
on the robbery.
The only lead was offered by Mr. Lykins, who
said there was an unidentified black male who fre-
quented the Snack Shack on a daily basis but never
bought anything.
In other thefts reported this week:
Joann Parker reported more than $2000 worth
of appliances taken from her vacant home 6238
C.W. Webb Rd. in Macclenny.
Ms. Parker was in the process of selling the home
and noticed the air conditioning unit was missing
during a final inspection the morning of November
18. After entering the house with Deputy William
Hilliard, she also said a gas fireplace was appar-
ently taken, too.
She advised that no one had been living at the
house since her now incarcerated nephew moved
out last March. Ms. Parker said the appliances
could've been missing since that time.
Troy Alexander, 19, of Tall Pine Rd. in Mac-
clenny was arrested for petty theft after allegedly
stealing two quarts of beer from the Exxon at 695


A Macclenny man told po-
lice he was attacked by several
assailants while pumping gas at
the Exxon Store on South 6th in
the early morning hours of No-
vember 19.
Deputy Tony Norman re-
sponded to the scene and inter-
viewed a store clerk who called
police after witnessing the fight.
She saw 5-6 white males scuf-
fling in the parking lot, and they
all drove off.
About a half hour later, the
officer was called to the emer-
gency room at Fraser Hospital
where Aaron Maines, 19, was
being treated for facial injuries.
He said he was accosted in the
Exxon lot, and doesn't remem-
ber anything because he was
knocked unconscious.
An acquaintance of Mr.
Maines, Brittany Pack, told
Deputy Norman she lent her car
to the victim and a friend just
before the 2:45 am incident, and
she knew the identity of the sec-
ond subject.
The case is under investiga-
tion.
In other incidents, Said Bis-
hara, 62, said he was accosted
in Cuz's One-Stop in Sanderson
the evening of November 16.
Mr. Bishara, the store owner,
told Deputy Norman that Doug-


W. Macclenny Ave. about 8:00 pm November 17.
Store .clerk Vickie Meadows said the suspect
placed the alcohol in his back pockets and left after
paying for his gas. She gave deputies a description
of the suspect's red pickup and also its tag num-
ber.
Police found the vehicle at the corner.of Ivy and
Cardinal streets and approached the driver, later
identified as Mr. Alexander. With the stolen beer
visible on his floorboard, the suspect abruptly ad-
mitted to stealing them.
Mr. Alexander was issued a trespass warrant
banning him from the store.
S* A misdemeanor petty theft charge was filed
with the state attorneys office against Darrell
Carver of Jacksonville after he allegedly made a
gas run at the S&S station on S. 6th St. about noon
November 20.
The suspect pumped more than nine gallons of
gasoline, worth about $18, before leaving the station
without paying. He was stopped by the sheriff's of-
fice traveling west of 1-10 and admitted to the theft,
saying he didn't have money and just wanted to get
home.
Carolyn Canaday reported the theft of a $200
ring from the bedroom of her residence at 15805
SR 121 in Canaday's Trailer Park sometime be-
tween October 21-25.
Ms. Canaday, who is disabled, said there were
no signs of forced entry into her trailer and pointed
to a neighbor now living in Lake City as a possible
suspect. The woman would stop by to check on her
two or three times a week and left about the time
the ring went missing, she said.
Tamara Thorton called police after her neigh-
bor allegedly stole six Adderol pills from a bottle
at her Glen St. Mary residence, 10746 Morningside
Lane. She said Mark Stoddard, 18, of Glen came
over and asked for a ride about 2:30 pm on Novem-
ber 19. The victim said Mr. Stoddard freely admit-
ted to ingesting the pills while she was in. another
room.
Attempts to locate Mr. Stoddard were unsuc-
cessful and a petty theft charge against the suspect
was forwarded to the state attorneys office.


las Givens, 34, of Orange Park
entered the store about 8:45 and
complained about paying for a
cigar. He then allegedly grabbed
Mr. Bishara's right hand and at-
tempted to break his fingers by
pushing the hand backward.
The alleged assailant could
not be found, and a complaint for
battery was filed against him. A
surveillance video confirms Mr.
Bishara's version of events.
A 15-year-old male was ar-
rested for battery following an
attack on another male student,
also 15, on a school bus the af-
ternoon of November 17.
Campus deputy Tracie Ben-
ton said, the two were Baker
High students on a bus parked
at Baker County Middle School
about 2:00. The second stu-
dent had injuries to the mouth
area, including a tooth that was
knocked out.


The town council during a
brief regular meeting the eve-
ning of November 18 approved
a schedule based on type of work
required in evening or night
hours, up to a minimum of four
hours for work after 10:00 pm
until 5:00 am.
Following the unanimous
vote, Glen St. Mary's personnel
policies were altered to reflect
the new policy.
Comp time basically exchang-
es hours for regular paid time off
later. Employees can accumulate
up to three days of comp time in-
stead of making overtime at 1.5
times regular pay. An employee
can opt to take the overtime
also.
The policy change was pro-
posed after employees Tommy
Ott and Darwin Taylor were
called out recently at 3:00 am .to
answer an alarm for a possible
malfunction in the water system.
The alarm was false, said Mayor
Juanice Padgett, but it. neces-
sitated both workers getting out
of bed, checking the situation
out, then attempting to go back
asleep.
The new policy also allows
a minimum one hour to check
the water plant or lift stations on
Saturday, and a minimum two
hours' for work between quitting
time and 10:00 pm.
The council also learned the
state Department of Community
Affairs will visit in December to
check over details of Glen's ap-
plication for a $600,000 CBDG
block grant to expand the central
water system north of US 90.

Music took hcr on a lifetime travel odyssey


MildredLutz has played, sang and taught it


In a back bedroom of her Sanderson home, Mildred Lutz often
sits at an upright Gulbranson piano, playing selections from a hym-
nal and singing along. Numerous small busts of composers including
Beethoven are clustered on the top of the pia-
no. A brightly colored hand-hooked rug with
a flower and guitar design covers the piano By
stool. It was made for her by one of her music
students. Kelley
There are musical mementos and reminders
all around, a tangible record of the teaching, Lannigan
playing and singing which has been such an Press Staff
integral part of her life experience.
Originally from Mt. Pleasant, Pennsylvania,
Ms. Lutz, 83, now makes her home in Baker County where she has
relatives.
"I was one of 15 children," says
Ms. Lutz. "My father purchased this
very piano in 1929 with the hope that l
his children would become proficient
in music."
Even before she was big enough to
sit on the stool by herself, she was en-
amored with the piano. Many of her '
siblings showed a passing interest in
learning to play, but Ms. Lutz turned
out to be the only child in her family
who seriously embraced music and
went on to pursue it as a career.
As a small child, she received her
first musical instruction at a Catho-
lic convent near her home, then went
on to study with- the music teacher
at the public school she attended.
By the time she was a freshman in
high school, Ms. Lutz was showing
proficiency in voice, piano and or-
gan. There was no question what she '
would pursue as a career.
She settled in Martinsburg, West
Virginia, where she lived and worked '
for the next 40 years. She taught in the
public schools during the winter and -
at the college level during summers. .
She also traveled a lot. As a profes- ,
sional vocalist, she was often invited .' -
to perform by the heads of music de- r.
' apartments at universities across the
United States and in Europe. She also
directed a chorus which performed
for civic and government functions.
Singing engagements at the White
House weren't unusual.
"I eventually earned every degree
you can in the music field," said Ms.
Lutz. "AB, Masters,.Supervisors De-
gree you name it and I earned it
including my doctorate which. I re-
ceived from the Sorbonne. France."
' One of her favorite performance
pieces, Mon coeru s.'ouvre a ta voix,
is an aria from the opera Samson and
Delilah. It's the famous song of se-
duction and according to Ms. Lutz,
if done with the dramatic choreogra-
phy, is quite suggestive and racy.
She recalls how she sometimes
performed the song when working
with high school students to try to
stimulate their interest in opera._
"It got their attention. They called
it "The Nasty Song," she remembers
with a laugh.
In the late 1960's, Ms. Lutz took
a one year sabbatical from teaching
and went back to France to concen-
trate on her own performance skills.
The trip was arranged for her by the
American attache' in Paris. When she told him she wanted to live as
the native people lived, he set up a series of host homes for her, each
at a different level of Parisian society. She stayed with three families
during that year, living as they lived.
"With the first family, my bed was a simple pile of straw with
blankets," she said.
There were no established churches and people would gather in
abandoned buildings to worship. Everyone brought a chair to sit in.
"Creature comforts were spartan, to say the least, but I have never
known a more wonderful, beautiful group of people," said Ms. Lutz.
"I actually hated leaving when it was time to go."
The next family that hosted her was the equivalent of middle class
and more well-to-do (beds with sheets.)
The third and finalresidence was the lap of luxury (breakfast in
bed and the finest linen) This home was headed by the leading sur-


geon in France and was located only three doors away from the resi-
dence of France's president.
During that year, Ms. Lutz studied with Doda Conrad, a Fullbright
Scholar. Five days a week, she walked about five miles both ways
for her lessons and spent part of each day at the Paris Opera House.
She often traveled from her post in France to give performances in
Germany and Italy.
On returning from one trip to Germany, she encountered two Ger-
man merchants on the plane who decided she was to be their mis-
tress.
"I didn't speak German, but I certainly understood it and I knew
what they were up to. The nerve! Then they followed me home and
were insistent on coming in.' Of course, I couldn't have that," she
said.
Ms. Lutz called her teacher Doda, who in turn called the'prime

minister of France. The prime minister placed her under guard for
three weeks until the pesky merchants went back to Germany.
One particularly memorable experience took place in the theatre
across from Ms. Lutz's residence. She regularly rehearsed at the the-
atre in one of several practice rooms. One evening she had to confront
another group whose loud practice session was interfering with her
rehearsal for an upcoming performance. Their session was literally
making the door to her room vibrate on its'hinges.
It turned out that the "ruckus" was being produced by a practice
session of The Beatles, who were giving a series of concerts at the
theatre.
"I went over and told them they were going to have to hush it up. I
meant it, too," she said. "We did become friends, however. They were
delightful folks."
When it was time to go back.to the states, Ms. Lutz was ready. She
missed her students. She continued to teach until retiring in 1990.
After that, she kept busy with music, performing as a vocalist with the
Veterans' Administration Medical Group Orchestra.
The orchestra had 500 members 250 musicians and 250 vocal-
ists. It traveled the United States and China. She performed with the
orchestra for four years.
After such an active career, much of it traveling, Ms. Lutz is happy
just to be at home. Music is still a part of her life and she volunteers
her services as a substitute pianist at Sanderson Baptist Church. She
paints, draws and indulges her passion for demi-tasse coffee cups,
having amassed nearly 300 in her current collection.
Each day the train goes by her house and when the horn blows a
chorus of howls, erupts from a large group of neighborhood dogs.
"They definitely howl in four-part harmony," she declares. "Unfor-
tunately, some of them are dreadfully off-key."

40 Stars and Stripes get a proper


retirement in ceremony Nov. 22


BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Off and on, the brilliance of
the blue sky was momentarily
obscured from gusts of smoke
that billowed from the portable
fire pit nestled in the back of the
cart.
A group of people stood near-
by, carefully following a specific
protocol for dis-assembling and
retiring the symbol of this coun-
try's history and its passionate
fight for independence and free-
dom' the American flag.
These were scenes from a
flag retirement ceremony that
took place November 22 at Heri-
tage Park Village, sponsored by
Baker County Cub Scout Troop
555.
The event served a dual pur-
pose: conducting the proper,
procedure for disposing of the,
American flag and as a valu-
able learning experience f6r at-
tendants, most of whom were
not aware that such a procedure
existed.
An unusable American flag is
not thrown away. Surprising to
many, the proper way to dispose
of a retired flag is by burning.
Afterwards, the remaining ashes
are buried in the ground.
Performing the ceremonial
flag retirement for spectators


were Cub Scout Troop 555 mas-
ters Deb Henderson and Kathy
Wyman-Lilly, assistant troop
master Karen Drow, Herbert
Hicks, director of Veterans Af-
fairs in Baker County and vol-
unteers such as Baker County
High School ROTC instructor
Elizabeth Law-Wallace.
The ceremony began with the
Pledge of Allegiance, followed
by the playing of taps to sym-
bolically retire the flags.
The grommets were removed
from the end of two large flags,
then, carefully and methodical-
ly, the blue fields (stars) and the
individual red and white stripes
were cut apart in preparation for
burning.
Members of troops 555 and
150 gave patriotic readings as
the flags were disassembled.
The stripes and blue fields were
then burned separately. The ash-
es were to be buried later at the
foot of the veteran's monument
located elsewhere in the park.
The wooden cart was filled
to the brim with flags that had
been collected for the retirement
ceremony. Many were brought
in by people attending the park
that day.
The Women's Club of Mac-
clenny was designated as a
drop-off site the week prior to


the event and flags, carefully
wrapped in plastic coverings,
were left on the front porch of
the club's meeting space on 5th
Street. In all, 40 were retired.
A flag should be retired when
its condition is no longer honor-
able to its purpose. Flags that are
extremely faded, tattered, soiled
or sullied should be retired from
service and no longer displayed.
The flag disposal procedure was
established to prevent this na-
tion's symbol from ending up in
undignified circumstances, such
as thrown into a trash heap.
Rules specific to civilian flag
courtesy were formulated dur-
ing a meeting of the National
Flag Conference in Washington
in June of 1923.
Congress then approved and
sanctioned The Flag Code to
properly dispose of them. The
United States Flag Code states:
"The flag, when it is in such
condition that it is no longer a
fitting emblem of display, should
be destroyed in a dignified way,
preferably by burning."
The grommets from the cer-
emonial flags were handed out
as mementos of the event.
"Grommets from retired flags
are considered good luck," said
troop master Wymer-Lilly.


Disruptive


student is


arrestedat


BCMS

A 14-year-old female student
at Baker County Middle School
faces a number of charges after
being disruptive at school and
resisting a deputy when he at-
tempted to handcuff her Novem-
ber 21.
The young female was es-
corted to her classroom by two
teachers after she was yelling
obscenities and threats at other
students and trying to start a
fight at school's field.
While aide Tammy Mc-
Cullough spoke to the teachers,
the girl ran out of the classroom
and back to the field, continuing
the disruptions. The aide fol-
lowed and physically restrained
the teen to transport her back to
the classroom.
There she was placed in a se-
cure room away from other stu-
dents for safety reasons and con-
tinued cursing at school faculty
and responding campus deputy
Tracie Benton.
The girl refused the'officer's
commands to calm down and
was verbally abusive toward her.
That's when Deputy Benton told
her she was being arrested.
' The deputy was only able to
secure one handcuff due to the
girl's struggling and had to be
assisted by Ms. McCullough to
get the other handcuff on, even
after delivering a knee spike to
the student's right leg.
Deputy Matthew Reigel was
dispatched to transport the youth
to county jail. She continued us-
ing foul language at him, spitting
in the patrol car, and was also
disruptive once at the facility.
She faces three misdemeanor
charges: assault on an officer, re-
sisting arrest and disturbing the
peace.

Went to his heavenly home
one year ago today. We thought
of you today, but that is nothing
new. We thought of you yes-
terday and will tomorrow, too.
We think of you in silence and
make, no outward show, for what
is meant to lose you only those
who love you know. Remember-
ing you is easy, we do it every
day. It's the heartache of losing
you that will never go away.

Remembrance is a golden
chain death tried to break, but
all in vain. To have, to love, and
then to part is the greatest sor-

may wipe out many things but
some they wipe out never. Like
memories of those happy times
when we were all together. -

Honored r 50 years in hardware business...
Gene Waters (left) an emp oyee of Hagan Ace Hardware and Thrift Hardware in Macclenny for five decades, poses with owner
Bill Hagan during a special recognition ceremony November 10. Mr. Waters, who started with Thrift Hardware in 1958, was
recognized with plaques, certificates and a badge commemorating 50 years of service. Among his awards was a special Gold
Hammer Award from Estwing Tool Company presented to any employee who has reached the half-century milestone. Manager
Todd Bunting described how Mr. Waters' vast knowledge of hardware inventory and his customer relations skills made him more
than just a regular employee. Mr. Hagan, on presenting the gold hammer award, stated: "You just don't see this very often." When
asked how it felt to have achieved such a goal, Mr. Waters replied: "Well, honestly, I didn't think I'd live that long!"

The Wildcat defense lines up against the Yellow Jacket offense Friday night.


Coach predicts more balanced'



squad as Jackets end Cat season


Though the season didn't end exactly the way
Wildcat faithful might have hoped with the loss to
St. Augustine last Friday, it was certainly a season
to remember. The Cats finished with a 9-2 record
and were one of the most impress e football teams
in the area.
The season started on a tragic note with the spi-
nal injury to Milton Oshay Johnson. It cast a pall
over the team and the community, but both were
able to rally behind the courageous young man as
he struggled to heal. "
Johnson's heroic example served as an inspiration
to the team, the school and the community and the
Wildcats made a commitment to honor their fallen
comrade on the field as well as in their hearts.
Their helmets were emblazoned with the number
21 and Johnson's picture was on the bench with the
players during the games. The tragedy could have.
driven them down, but instead it lifted them up.
Going into the season, Coach Bobby Johns felt
that his defense would be one of the best. if not the
best units .he,hs coached,, and aA4h' season O-
gressed they.didinefhing to diminish. his.high opin-
ion.
When the defense faced an opponent with a
strong running game, it stopped them cold. When
they faced a passing team like Ridgeview or Bishop
Kenny, the linebackers and defensive backfield cov-
ered the receivers like a blanket while the defensive
front harassed the quarterback.
Their only blemish came at the hands of Jackson
and St. Augustine, a pair of undefeated and state-
ranked teams who could match the physicality of
the Wildcat defense with a balanced running and
passing game and an massive offensive line.
Offensively, "BCHS continued the production
they had last season. The running game was out-
standing. Throughout most of the year, Johns had
four standout backs. Greg Williams, Rueben Jack-


Former BCHS football stand-
out Jonathan "Bear" Woods has
had a banner year for Troy State
in Alabama from his linebacker
position. Woods is one of the
top tacklers in the country and
was recently named the Sun Belt
Conference's Defensive Player
of the Week.
Woods had 10 tackles (9 solo)
and a pair of tackles for losses to
help Troy hold the Sunbelt's all-
time leading rusher Tyrell Fenroy
to just 23 yards in a lopsided 48-
3 victory over the Ragin' Cajuns
of Louisiana Tech.
The win sets up a December 6
clash with Arkansas State for the


conference crown and a bowl ap-
pearance.
Woods, the son of Mark arid
Kelly Woods of Macclenny,
walked on at quarterback as a
freshman, then was moved to
linebacker and has steadily im-
proved at the position. He won
a starter position this season and
has led the way for the Trojans
as they challenged for their third
straight conference crown.
As you make your plans for
what bowl games to watch this
holiday season, be sure to put a
star by Troy's bowl. You'll cer-
tainly be watching a star plying
his trade.

Steelers win title; all-stars play


BY CHUCK NICHOLS
Press Staff
The Baker County
Touchdown Club closed
out its regular season No-
vember 15 with the senior
division championship and
red and white all-star teams
going at it in the pee-wee
and middle divisions.
The senior division
championship was the fi-
nale, pitting the Steelers
against the 49ers. While
the Steelers won the regu-
lar season meeting, the
49ers took the jamboree
meeting, so the game was
expected to be a good one
and did not disappoint. yard
By halftime the Steelers
clung to a one point lead, 7-
6. In the second half the Steelers
offense came to life. The 49ers
were so close on a couple of key
plays that could have changed
the outcome, but when the clock
hit zero the Steelers had won the
game 21-6.
This year's senior division
champion team included a
young lady, for the first time in a
few years. Megan Powell started
for the Steelers at linebacker and
offensive line and had a great
game at both spots.
The senior all-stars were also
selected to play in Waycross,
Ga. November 22, and though
they attended the game, it was
forfeited by the opposing squad.
They moved on to a semi-final
match-up November 25, howev-
er, results were not available at
