BOB GERARD I SPORTS ,, i s


Coach Bobby Johns made it official on Friday that he would be
leaving Baker County and taking ajob as head football coach at Milton
High in Santa Rosa County.
Johns, who has led the Wildcats for four seasons, made the an-
nouncement two days after the story broke in The Press and media
outlets in west
Florida that he
was looking else-
where for em-
ployment.

Coach Johns went 33-12 in his tenure at BCHS.


Johns was 33-
12 in his tenure
with the Wild-
cats after taking
over a team that
was o-o1. After
a 5-5 season in
his opening year,
Johns led the
Wildcats to three
straight playoff
appearances.
The team's sig-
nature win came
this year in the
first round of the
playoff when the
Cats beat Madi-


son 26-17.
Johns was also instrumental in improving the team's infrastruc-
ture. He helped start a booster club that pumped thousands of dollars
into the program, made improvements in the stadium, including a
Jumbotron, and arranged for numerous perks for the players such as
charter buses for away games.
Johns leaves a program that will be rebuilding next season but
that retains a core of solid players. He will take over a program that is
struggling. The Panhandle school about 30 minutes outside of Pen-
sacola had a 5-5 record this season. The Class 4A Panthers started
strong but lost their last 5 games. Though the task will not be as daunt-
ing as the one he faced when he moved to Baker County, it will still be

Campaign signage


rules are merging


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
Candidates running for local
office this year may soon have
only one set of rules to follow
when it comes to campaign
signs instead of three pro-
vided the governing boards of
Macclenny, Glen St. Mary and
the county pass common regu-
lations.
That effort began last month
at the behest of Supervisor of
Elections Nita Crawford, who
met with staffers from the three
branches of government to
brainstorm recommendations
for a new campaign sign ordi-
nance that could be adopted
uniformly around the county.
The Baker County Commis-
sion was the first body to refine

the recommendations, doing
so the evening of February 2.
Commissioner Michael Crews
was quick to express opposition
to restricting signs on private
property.
They're not permitted on
public property anywhere in the
county.
"If they want to do looo1000
[signs] or one, I don't think it's
any of our business," said Mi-
chael Crews regarding a recom-
mendation limiting the number
of signs per parcel. "If it's pri-
vate property, they should be
able to put what they want out
there."
Later County Manager Joe
Cone clarified the recommenda-
tion, saying it called for no more
than one sign per candidate or
issue, thus barring multiple
signs promoting the same mes-
sage at the same location.
Commissioner Gordon
Crews feared loosening cam-
paign signs regulations could
turn into a problem. "You still
have to police what people do.
They'll come up with all kinds of
stuff," he said. "There should be
guidelines."

Will fly banner until killer is caught


KELLEY LANNIGAN

features@bakercountypress.com
The Clay County Sheriffs
Office continues to process
thousands of leads in the inves-
tigation of Somer Thompson's
murder. The 7-year-old's body
was recovered from a Georgia
landfill last October.
For Verna and Robert
Midgett of Macclenny, the day
Somer's killer is caught can't
come soon enough. Their son,
Charles Currier, is the boy-
friend of Diena Thompson,
Somer's mother.
The Midgetts experienced
firsthand the nightmarish anx-
iety after Somer's abduction
and the emotional upheaval
following news of her death.


"The horror of it can't be
described," said Mrs. Midgett.
"There is just no way to really


describe what it was like. At one
point, my husband had to take
me to Fraser Hospital to be

treated for stress."
Since the tragedy, a large
purple and white banner has
graced the outside of their
home on 3rd Street. It bears
this message: Remembering
Somer Thompson.
Inside a heart-shaped out-
line is a picture of the little girl
with the sweet elfin face.
"I believe he [the killer] will
be found," said Mrs. Midgett.
"It might be tomorrow, it might
be years from now. Until then,
this banner will always be dis-
played outside our home."
When Mrs. Midgett got
home from work last Monday,
she discovered the banner had
come loose from its moorings.
It had taken quite a beating in

Couple flies banner for Somer


( the high winds. The photo image
of Somer had come loose and was
missing.
With the help of her husband,
they recovered it and brought it
inside. As they watched the eve-
ning news together, they spread
the banner over their coffee table
to repair some areas that were
torn.
"We'll need a new banner
soon," said Mr. Midgett, hold-
ing down loose sections while
his wife applied tape. "And a new
photo of Somer."
"When this banner completely
wears out, we'll get another,"
added Mrs. Midgett. "I promised
my son and Diena that we'd dis-
play the banner until the killer is
caught. It's important to us that
the public not forget what hap-
pened to Somer because it can
happen to any child."
Even as the couple worked on
repairs, Channel 4 news began
broadcasting an update to the
public about the Somer Thomp-
son investigation. Both watched
quietly as crime reporter Jenni-
fer Waugh reported on the cur-
rent task force known as Team
Somer.
The team consists of 15 mem-
bers of the Clay County Sheriffs
Office. An FBI agent, as well as a
member of the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement are
also assigned to the investiga-
tion.
Video footage revealed the in-
side of what is known as the "war
room" where all day, every day,

a challenge.
It will be a return to the area
for Johns who led nearby Blount-
stown to state runners-up in the
2005-06 season. Milton is a
slightly larger school with a clas-
sification up for the Wildcats.
Details of the move are
sketchy, but Johns will undoubt-
edly take some of his staff with
him to the Panhandle.
Meanwhile, Principal Thomas
Hill will be bracing for a rush of
job applications for a coaching
position that will be considered
a plum. Though the Wildcats will
be depleted through graduation,
it is still a position that will hold
a lot of appeal to coaches looking
for a potential move.


Team Somer checks and rechecks
tips and leads received about the
case. Those leads number close
to 3500.
"The Clay County sheriff's
department has been fantastic,"
declared Mrs. Midgett. "They
keep the family informed about
the investigation. In turn, my son
keeps us informed as well."
The Midgetts can't say
enough about Clay County
Deputy Dwayne Singletary, who
has worked intimately with the
Thompson family since the be-
ginning of the ordeal.
"He was amazing the way he
took control," said Mrs. Midgett.
"We will always be grateful for
his dedication and the way he
protected the family's privacy,
shielding them from the media
and others trying to get informa-
tion.
"He was the one who had to
break the news to us that Somer's
body had been found, that she
wasn't alive. He was so amazingly
sensitive and tender with Diena,"
said Mrs. Midgett.
In the meantime, the Midg-
etts just take things one day at a
time. Getting back to normal, or
as close to it as the circumstances
allow, is what they are doing now.
Still, they say they think of Somer
every day.
Supporting their son and Di-
ena Thompson, helping them
cope, is part of how they are
personally working through the
tragedy.
"Sometimes I go and pick up
Somer's sister Abby and bring
her out here to spend the week-
end with us," said Mrs. Midgett.
"Diena visits too. They were all
here at Christmas and it was very
hard for her."
To the Midgett's way of think-


ing, the best thing they can do for
Diena is giving her the freedom
to grieve and express that grief
anyway she needs to.
"The hurt is still so deep and
sometimes she struggles hard to
keep her composure," said Mr.
Midgett.
Mrs. Midgett understands.
"I tell her, Diena, if you need
to cry, then cry. If you need to
scream, then scream. Do what-
ever you need to. We will under-
stand," she said.
The Midgetts believe Somer's
killer will be caught and remain
faithful in the ongoing work of
the investigation. For now, they
bide their time and wait.
"It seems as if a war has been
declared on our children and
it must be stopped," said Mrs.
Midgett. "The person who did
this to Somer could very well do it
again. That's why we display the
banner. People must not forget.
We are determined forjustice for
Somer and all abused children."

Tebow ad protest hypocritical, duplicitous


Driving to
work on a re- PRE
cent morning, I P
nearly spit hot Jim Mc
tea all over the
steering wheel
and dashboard hearing that the
"pro-choice" crowd was having a
fit over a planned Super Bowl ad
produced by Focus on the Fam-
ily. The message Tim Tebow
and his mom talking about how
she decided to have him rather
than get an abortion as advised
by a physician because of an ill-
ness during her pregnancy.
That's it. Mrs. Tebow "chose"
just like the "pro-choice" people
tell women they should. Tim
Tebow an aborted fetus? Un-
thinkable!
Is there anyone left on the
planet who doesn't see the hy-
pocrisy here? How about the
duplicity?
Isn't it great how events can
sometimes [not often enough!]
define us in ways that our words
cannot? I assume CBS, which got
an estimated $2.5 million for the
ad, will cast aside any political
aversion its employees may have
about using a Super Bowl venue
to spout such right wing, Bible-
thumpin' claptrap as this.
Since that tea-stained steer-
ing wheel morning, we've heard
from the usual suspects. On Fox
News morning show last Friday,
spokespeople from Focus on the
Family and the National Orga-
nization for Women battled it
out, the latter complaining about
the inappropriate venue the
world's most watched sporting
event and that viewers should
have to be subjected to topics like
this on "America's night."
The Focus guy was asked if
he'd object to a pro-choice [pro-
abortion] ad running the same


cC


night. "Not at
SI N S all," he replied.
SI N Free speech.
a u ley Regardless
auley of your position
on abortion, this
debate is about free speech. The
reason it defines one side of the
debate perhaps more negatively
is because, for the pro-choice
crowd, it shines a defining light


on what they have always pur-
ported to be a "You respect my
view, I'll respect yours" high
ground position.
I'd respect that side more if
they defined themselves more
accurately, something closer to
"pro-abortion." The "pro-choice"
moniker was a clever twist of the
language invented three decades
ago to deal with a nasty problem.


Earn respect being responsible


JESSICA PREVATT
I had the unenviable task of
filing our taxes early Sunday
morning and discovered some-
thing appalling. When estimat-
ing what our refund would be for
the next two years there was a
huge difference. It was cut in half
which, considering how much we
get back, is a lot of money.
For a president elected on
the basis of helping the middle
class which had supposedly been
downtrodden during the Bush
administration, I think some-
body lied. I had already heard
that we were supposed to be get-
ting back more, but unless the
program I used has a flaw we're
already paying more this year,
not less. From my perspective,
Obama has done me no favors.
Bush gave me a check for $600
for being a working taxpayer. Of
course, I think he gave money to
those who didn't work, either.
He gave me tax cuts that allowed
me and my family to get a lot of
money back (we paid in a lot, too)
on our income taxes each year.


I received an e-mail of a speech
President Obama made regard-
ing his proposed budget and two
sentences prompted me to voice
my disapproval and borderline
disgust. He stated in a press con-
ference, "The fact is, to years ago,
we had a budget surplus of more
than $200 billion, with projected
surpluses stretching out toward
the horizon. Yet over the course
of the past to years, the previ-
ous administration and previous
Congresses created an expensive
new drug program, passed mas-
sive tax cuts for the wealthy, and
funded two wars without paying
for any of it all of which was
compounded by recession and by
rising health care costs."
Now, I do not consider myself
wealthy, but I got a tax cut from
President Bush. According to
Obama, those only went to the
wealthy, not us middle class folks.
Although after reading further he
is extending the middle class tax
cuts, at least those making less
than $250,000. In my humble
estimation, anyone making over
$100,000 is pretty dar wealthy.

I wouldn't want to make a
lot of money if I knew most of it
would go to the government in
taxes. If I made anywhere close to
that figure the last thing I would
want to do is shoulder more of
the tax burden for those too lazy
to get out and work or live on
government subsidies. I guess
we'll wait and see if he follows
through extending some of the
Bush tax cuts.
The president also blamed
Bush for funding two wars with-
out paying for them. Somebody
is paying for it; we may be bor-
rowing to do it, but the national
security and safety of the citizens
seem like a good enough reason
to do so. If the government is go-
ing to spend my tax dollars on
eliminating the terrorists who
threaten me and my family, then
by all means, spend it. Cut some
of the unneeded programs and
pork spending to balance it out.
There are plenty of those out
there.
If things could be simplified
and the politicians not allowed
to add in pork spending to satisfy
their constituents, government
spending would fall dramati-
cally.
Reinstate the line item veto.
The Supreme Court deemed it
unconstitutional so the president
no longer has the option. Sena-
tor Russ Feingold (D-WI) and
Senator John McCain (R-AZ) are
trying to reinstate a version of the
line item veto.
An elected president is where
the "buck" stops when it comes to
my tax dollars.
In these tough economic
times, there is a call for account-
ability from our nation's political
leaders. Quit looking out for your
own personal career and take
care of our nation as a whole.
You might not be the most popu-
lar kid in the sandbox, but you
will earn the respect of a nation
if you show fiscal responsibil-
ity and make sure the money is
spent where it should be and not
wasted.
Jessica Prevatt is the advertising di-
rector for The Baker County Press.


The negative connotation of the
word "abortion" was just too
much when one is promoting a
political agenda. They shouldn't
be so sensitive; after all, they

side!

LETTER TO THE
EDITOR


Lauds CAA

Dear Editor:
In case you've ever wondered
if there is anything "free" for the
asking, I learned about a program
when searching for financial help
for my 82-year-old mother.
Last summer, Mom's heating
and cooling unit went out, and
there was no fixing it this time.
I learned of the Northeast
Florida CommunityAction Agen-
cy on West Lowder in Macclenny
and an employee named Victo-
ria Terry offered to see if Mom
qualified for assistance. She got
the ball rolling and I began the
paperwork.
Last December, the agency
arranged for weatherizationn" of
my mother's home with insula-
tion, sealed windows and other
techniques. They then installed a
new heating and cooling unit at
no cost to her!
All I can say is thank God for
putting Ms. Terry in my life.
With the recent cold weather in
northeast Florida, Mom would
have been in deep trouble, not
to mention the high electric bills
she would be getting.
NFCAA has the funds for this;
all it takes is a willing relative
or a friend of an elderly person
to help. There is no reason for
elderly people to suffer because
they can't afford to pay high elec-
tric bills.
Give this agency a call or stop
by to see them. Again, thanks for
these dedicated people working
for the citizens of Baker County.

MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD

Somebody asked me the other
day how I could keep coming up
with stuff to write about week
after week. I'm not sure when
I started writing these humor
columns, but I think that it was
sometime in the mid-eighties.
I thought about that comment
and the answer maylie in the fact
that I look at stuff a little differ-
ently from most people. It may
be that my world view is a little
skewed. Of course, it could also
be that I am crazy as a loon and
they just haven't hauled me off
yet. Either way, it's worked so
far.
The other day I noticed that
comedian Steven Wright was in
Jacksonville. Wright is, in my
opinion, the funniest man alive.
If my view of the world is a little
off-kilter, Wright's is completely
upside-down.
Here are a few Steven Wright
witticisms and some of my own as
well. I don't guarantee that you'll
be able to tell which is which.
Some people see the glass as
half full and others as half empty.
Either way, I want my money
back.
If one man's ceiling is an-
other man's floor, is one of them
walking upside down?
I intend to live forever. So
far, so good.
I live on a one-way street
that's also a dead end. I'm afraid
to leave my house.
I poured spot remover on my
dog. Now he's gone.
I used to work in a fire hy-
drant factory. You couldn't park
anywhere near the place.
My feet are ambidextrous. I
can put either shoe on either foot.
I put on two left shoes the other
day. I spent the whole day walk-
ing in a circle.
I went to a general store but
they didn't have any generals.
I went to a restaurant that
served "breakfast anytime." So
I ordered eggs during the Dark
Ages.
I went to this museum where
they had all the arms and heads
from the statues in other muse-
ums.
I bought a dog with one eye
and only three legs. I named him
Lucky.
My cat traded in eight of her
lives for a Mercedes.
If one synchronized swim-
mer drowns, do all the rest have
to drown, too?
If you shoot a mime does
anyone hear him scream?
It doesn't matter what the
temperature is in a room, it's al-
ways room temperature.
My friend has a new baby.
I'm recording all the sounds he
makes so later I can ask him what
he meant.
I can scream until I'm blue in
the face or hold my breath until I
turn blue. What's so great about
the color blue?
I was going through customs
at the airport and they asked me
if I had anything to declare. So I
said, "Well, I declare!!"
Whenever I think of the past
it brings back so many memo-
ties.
Do they eat American bacon
in Canada?
Do they eat German toast in
France?
They say money can't buy
happiness. Can you rent it?
Was there gravity before Is-
sac Newton discovered it?

More than $33 million in state funding
going to 28 providers of mental health and
drug abuse counseling services in Baker, Clay,
Nassau and Duval counties could be funneled
through one organization after July 2011.
It's part of an voluntary overhaul of the
system that delivers such services to commu-
nities across Florida and aims to replace the
more than 550 provider contracts that the De-
partment of Children and Families [DCF] now
manages with two dozen or fewer agreements
with nonprofit managing entities or MEs.
MEs have been established in other parts
of the state to oversee provider contracts.
Tonia Branch, the director of NEFSH's
Community Behavioral Healthcare Services
office on West Lowder Street, said the ap-
proach has worked particularly well in Cen-
tral Florida.
At the moment, the only ME proposal for
Northeast Florida has been submitted by a
regional group of mental health advocates
and service providers formally known as the
Jacksonville Mental Health Coalition, which
is seeking a designation as the ME for DCF's
District 4 and Baker County.
The district includes Clay, Duval and Nas-
sau counties.
Ms. Branch described the draft proposal as
a work-in-progress that will likely be amended
with direction from the state. However, DCF
officials in Tallahassee could decide to open
the selection process to any and all interested
nonprofit organizations.
The Jacksonville coalition is currently


seeking nonprofit status as Northeast Florida
Behavioral Health Solutions. Its proposal
calls for a 25-member governing board con-
sisting of 12 provider representatives and 13
non-providers like service recipients and their
family members, elected officials, advocacy
groups and other stakeholders.
Any eventual ME in the region would man-
age contracts using a share of the funding now
going to providers like Ms. Branch's organi-
zation, the Child Guidance Center and Baker
Community Counseling Services, which offers
substance abuse counseling.
The ME would receive four percent of all
the annual contract and administrative fund-
ing dispersed to DCF's Circuit 4 and Baker
County. Today, that's about $1.3 million. The
funding cut for Baker County providers would
be roughly $27,000.
"This is an important issue," said Ms.
Branch. "It's going to change how those dol-
lars enter into the community. It's not hap-
pening today, but in a year and half it will sig-
nificantly impact the way funding comes."
The Florida legislature authorized DCF
to begin setting up MEs in 2008 to increase
efficiency and effectiveness for instance
by combining drug abuse and mental health
counseling programs.
"Here we have substance abuse, children
and adult mental health counseling, so you
could be going to three different meetings,
telling your story three different times and
getting three different assessments," Ms.
Branch said.
The move to MEs also redefines DCF's pur-
pose as more of a policy-setting agency.
"The goal is to allow for a more flexible and


innovative form of management that will, in
turn, allow [DCF] to assume a broader plan-
ning, training and systems development role,"
states the department's December 2009 plan
for Statewide Implementation of Managing
Entities.
Any potential ME would have to keep in-
tact existing funding levels for two years after
July 2011, minus the four percent, said Ms.
Branch.
But what might happen after that period is
uncertain.
"They'll have the dollars and they'll have
the contract. And they could change it up," she
said. "This is supposed to be a transformation
of the behavioral health system."
The Jacksonville coalition's next meeting is
February 5 at lo:oo am in the City of Jackson-
ville's Behavioral and Human Services Divi-
sion, 3400 Building, 1809 Art Museum Dr.,
Suite loo.
Ms. Branch said Baker County residents
interested in mental health advocacy, vol-
unteering or who seek to offer input on the
still-developing organization is welcome to
attend.
"It would be nice to get people from Baker
County involved," she said. '"They already have
architectural subcommittees going, but Baker
County's voice could be larger ... It's a great
opportunity to have an impact on changes to
the system."

The price tag for razing many
of the old Macclenny elementary
school buildings rose by $14,350
this month after contractors
uncovered additional asbestos
contamination in ceilings, floors,
eaves and other areas around the
campus.
Burkhalter Wrecking, Inc.
of Jacksonville began the de-
molition, which originally cost
roughly $130,000, in December
and the school board approved
the change order for more asbes-
tos abatement services during
its meeting January 19 by a 4-1


vote.
Board member Paul Rauler-
son dissented.
The demolition of the South
Boulevard school includes five
buildings and several wooden
portable classrooms. The struc-
tures were built in the early
1950s.
After the project began, work-
ers found evidence of asbestos
not encountered in an initial sur-
vey. A new survey took place at
three portables along with other
areas of concern.
According to the contractor's


change order request, new as-
bestos was found in the floor tiles
and sealant of a portable, the
pegboard soffit on outside eaves
of one building, the ceiling pan-
els around the perimeter of two
buildings and under a canopy
close to the cafeteria.
During the same meeting,
which took place at Sander-
son Congregational Holiness
Church on CR 127, the school
board unanimously approved an
$2,430 annual agreement with
TruGreen for upkeep of fields at
Memorial Stadium and a part-


nership agreement with the Jack-
sonville Chamber of Commerce
for, among other things, student
internships at the organization.
The TruGreen agreement's
cost is the same as last year.
The board this week convened
at New Jerusalem Church of God
in Christ in Margaretta, approv-
ing a $43,830 bid for annual tele-
communications services from
SETEL February 1.
The only other bid came from
NEFCOM at $71,625.


Year-long county jail sentences given


Circuit Judge Phyllis Rosier,
in her first day back on the crimi-
nal bench in Baker County, sen-
tenced two defendants to a year
in county jail on February 1 in
separate and unrelated cases.
Christopher Mann was given
the year minus 97 days already
served after pleading no contest
to aggravated battery. He will be
on probation 18 months follow-
ing release.
Michael Anthony (Tony)
Gray entered a similar plea to
twin counts of burglary, and to
petty theft and grand theft, and
will be on probation five years
following completion of the jail
term. He received 77 days credit
for time served, and Judge Rosier
ordered him to undergo a mental
health evaluation.
Albert Jones admitted violat-


ing probation for a 2009 felony
drug charge, and was ordered to
serve a six-month jail sentence
followed by two years on house
arrest. He got credit for 92 days.
Geneva McCollum will be on
probation one year following her
plea to possession of a firearm by
a convicted felon. Judge Rosier
also ordered confiscation of the
firearm.
James Bailey was sentenced
to time served in jail after he ad-
mitted to violating probation in
2007 cases for cocaine posses-
sion and felony driving while his
license was suspended. A similar
sentence was given to Stevie Gib-
son, who admitted to a probation
violation in a 2008 grand theft
case.
Joshua Foerman will be in
jail a month after pleading to


grand theft and an arrest war-
rant was issued for Robert Force,
who failed to appear during the
regular motion and docket day
this week.
Judge Rosier re-assumes


the criminal bench from Judge
James Nilon of Gainesville. She
has been presiding over civil and
family cases during the last court
term.

Arrest for aggravated stalking

Deputy nabs estranged husband near house


An estranged husband was
arrested after he showed up at a
residence offAltman's Way in the
north county about midnight on
February 1 after a county deputy
had parked nearby.
Deputy Chris Walker said the
sheriffs department had been
asked to keep an eye on the home
of Lisa Carter, 34, after she ob-
tained a court order the previous
day after threats and vandalism
by William Carter, 53, who was
reported back in the area.
Mr. Carter, according to the
deputy's report, had telephoned
relatives of Ms. Carter to say
he was staying with relatives in
Kentucky. One of those calls, to
her sister, was made from the
Best Western motel in Baldwin,
where Mr. Carter was located and
served with the injunction.
After confirming that, the
sister secured the order banning
Mr. Carter from contact with her,
and told police she feared for her
safety based on statements previ-
ously made by the husband.
Deputy Walker said he had
parked near the residence about
midnight, just before Mr. Carter
drove up to it in a 2003 Cadil-
lac. The officer said the husband
then drove away from the prop-
erty after noticing the patrol car,


and headed south on CR 127 to
Sanderson Circle, where he was
stopped and arrested.
On January 26, Mrs. Carter
filed a report after noticing that
the ignition on her 2006 Dodge
van had been damaged by glue.
The husband is a suspect in that
case.
Deputy Walker noted in his
report that Mr. Carter had two
screwdrivers, a hammer and
duct tape in the Cadillac when
arrested.
The suspect was booked early
that morning for aggravated
stalking following the court or-
der, a third-degree felony.
Police made an arrest and
filed criminal complaints the
past week in several other cases
involving domestic violence.
A 15-year-old girl was turned
over to Juvenile Justice officials
charged with battery on her
mother at their residence off
South 3rd St. in Macclenny the
morning of January 17.
The mother sustained facial
lacerations when struck by her
daughter, who became angry
when told she had to attend
school.
Jaleel Ruise, 30, of Macclen-
ny was named in a complaint for
battery on girlfriend Vondalen


Jackson, 27, at her residence
on W. Lowder St. the evening of
January 28.
The two became involved in
a fight after Ms. Jackson discov-
ered Mr. Ruise was on a Facebook
site communicating with another
woman.
Heather Bennett, 22, and
Kenneth Goethe, 31, a boyfriend
and girlfriend who live at the
same address off CR 130 near
Sanderson, were both named in
complaints following an incident
at their residence the evening of
January 29.
Mr. Goethe said he attempted
to restrain the girlfriend about
7:50 when she had ingested some
pills and attempted to leave with
her 3-year-old daughter.
The boyfriend told Deputy
Robert Simpkins he was struck
about the neck and face, and that
Ms. Bennett put a pistol to his
head and threatened to kill him.
The girlfriend insisted Mr.
Goethe was intoxicated when
babysitting her daughter, and he
struck her with sufficient force
that she fell to the ground. Mo-
ments earlier, Ms. Bennett said
the boyfriend threw the daughter
onto the floor of her vehicle.

and Elizabeth Harris, 51, the eve-
ning of January 30 at their resi-

Rd. near Sanderson.
According to Mr. Harris, he
and his step-daughter Susan
York, 32, were arguing when Mr.
Crews, who is Ms. York's boy-
friend, intervened and threat-
ened him.
When Mrs. Harris came to her
husband's defense, Mr. Crews
allegedly struck both of them,
knocking Mrs. Harris to the
floor.
Hulon Strickland, 36, was
named in a complaint for battery
following the alleged beating of
his wife Angela, 42, at a residence
off Creekside Dr. near Macclenny
the evening of January 26.
Mrs. Strickland told Deputy
Tony Norman the two were ar-
guing over her oldest daughter
when her husband struck her
in the face and on the top of her
head. Deputy Norman said the
victim's face bore signs of the at-
tack, including a bloody mouth.
The wife told the officer her
husband had fled to his mother's
residence, where police were re-
fused entry after being told he
was not there.



arrested
Sammy Griffin, 36, of Mac-
clenny was charged with resist-
ing police without violence after
he twice ran from FHP Trooper
Dan Myers in the west city the
afternoon of January 26.
Trooper Myers was at the
scene near Lowder and Lewis St.
assisting Deputy Johnny Hodges,
who answered a call about a sus-
picious person with a gun.
The other subject, Tyrone
Reed, 33, of Jacksonville, had an
air rifle and said he was hunting
squirrels. He was not charged.
Mr. Griffin was with Mr. Reed,
and fled on foot when the deputy
arrived. Trooper Myers ran him
down twice before he was hand-
cuffed and arrested.


Underage sale busts
Clerks manning eight Baker County convenience stores the evening
of January 29 were issued citations to appear in court for selling alco-
hol to minors.
"This is the most we've ever gotten," said Chuck Brannan, lead in-
vestigator at the sheriffs office.
Similar buy-and-bust operations took place last September and will
continue in the future, he said.
Investigators sent 18-year-old males and females into 16 local stores
that evening. Mr. Brannan said in most of the busts, the clerks didn't
require identification, and in almost every case, they didn't ask the
buyer's age, either.
The following people, all but one from Baker County, are accused of
selling alcohol to a minor, a misdemeanor:
Middleburg resident Jerrod Andrew Yeomans, 21, at the Raceway
on Woodlawn Road near the interstate.
Yong I. Andzeiczak, 60, at the Citgo at US 90 and I-to near Olus-
tee.
Dana A. Shannon, 48, at Altman's Grocery on CR 125 N.
Austin N. Sigers, 20, at Country Boys at CR 125 and US 90 in Glen
St. Mary.
Vickie Lynn Meadows, 39, at the Amoco at US 90 and SR 121 in
Macclenny.
Jonathan Robert Dukes Jr., 5o, at the BP on US 90 in Macclenny.
Libby Carter, 48, at the Exxon at SR 121 and Barber Road in Mac-
clenny.
Susan R. Ogden, 49, at the Quick and Handy on North Lowder
Street in Macclenny.
Mr. Brannan said all of the above suspects are first-time offenders,
though other clerks at the Raceway have been caught selling to minors
previously.
Other stores cited in the past, like the Fastway on Woodlawn Road,
were found to be complying with the law last week.

Art, artifacts go missing

From vacant Woodlawn Rd. home


Artifacts, art works, figurines and other property
with a total value of $1660 were taken from an un-
occupied house off Woodlawn Rd. near Macclenny
between January 8-26.
Owner Elizabeth Drummond reported the bur-
glary when she returned to the property off Pe-
can Plantation Dr. and found it had been entered
through a shattered bathroom window.
Police were able to lift fingerprints inside the
structure.
In other property crimes the past week:
James Doss returned to his residence off Thom-
as Sweat Rd. near Sanderson the afternoon of Janu-
ary 26 and discovered about $20 in loose change
plus two prescription medications had been taken.
It appeared someone loosened screws on a latch
securing a rear door with a padlock, then replaced
the latch.
Landen Sigers reported January 30 the theft of
two rifles and a watch from his residence off Saw-
tooth Rd. north of Macclenny. The watch was said
to be worth $225 and no value was given for the
firearms.
Mr. Sigers named an estranged girlfriend who
recently moved out as a likely suspect.
A computer game valued at $200 was taken


from a bag while a Baker County Middle School stu-
dent was in gym class the morning of January 28.
Her mother told police the daughter had mistak-
enly taken the Nintendo DSI to school. It was later
recovered by school officials, the mother said.
A pistol valued at $350 was taken from a pickup
truck sometime during the day on January 29.
Owner Robert Taylor told police the vehicle was
driven to Baker High that day by his nephew, and
that the truck belongs to his brother. The nephew
and two friends who were with him denied knowl-
edge of the theft.
Tasha Baxter reported the theft of a naviga-
tion device from her 2005 GMC vehicle overnight
on January 26. The SUV was parked outside a resi-
dence on Huckleberry Trail north of Macclenny and
was unlocked.
The device was valued at $180.
Tiara Roberson, 21, of Macclenny was arrested
the afternoon of January 29 for attempting to steal
$150 in merchandise from the Walmart Supercent-
er.
She was caught on a surveillance video placing
items in a store bag, and apprehended after she
passed the point of purchase area and attempted to
leave the store.

Beating,
A Glen St. Mary woman faces
multiple charges of battery and
intimidating a witness following
an incident outside a residence
on Ruise Lane in Margaretta the
evening of January 27.
Melissa Givens, 37, alleg-
edly struck Shelly Shumate, 30,
from behind when the two were
leaving a party about 7:30, then
repeatedly hit and kicked her as
she lay on the ground.
Deputy Shawn Bishara said
Ms. Shumate was "bleeding ex-
cessively" from facial wounds
when he arrived at the scene,
and she was later transported
to Fraser Hospital for treatment
and observation. The officer also
noted that Ms. Shumate was in-
toxicated.
She said both she and the al-
leged assailant were at a mutual
friend's residence, and she was
asked to leave because of her
condition. An argument ensued,
and she claims she was attacked
when Ms. Givens escorted her
from the residence.

Ms. Shumate also alleged that
Ms. Givens threatened to kill her
if Hosea Belford, accused of rap-
ing Ms. Shumate, goes to jail.
The accused told Deputy Bis-
hara that Ms. Shumate was in-
jured when she fell leaving the
residence. The officer arrested
Ms. Givens after noting that the
victim's injuries were not consis-
tent with falling down.
The intimidation offense is a
third-degree felony.
In other cases reported by the
sheriffs office this week:
Ashley Rhoden, 22, of Mac-
clenny was arrested early on
January 30 for battery on Tanya
Clemons, 29, outside the latter's
residence off Taber Blvd. in Glen
St. Mary.
Ms. Clemons said the assailant
scaled a locked gate after she re-
turned about 3:oo am and struck
her several times about the face
and head. Deputy Tony Norman
said he observed scratches and
an abrasion on Ms. Clemons.
The two had been involved in
a confrontation at the Country
Club Lounge earlier.
Ms. Rhoden was booked for
battery and disorderly conduct.

was arrested and turned over to
Juvenile Justice officials after an
alleged attack at noon on Janu-

ing arrest with violence as cam-
pus deputy Matt Riegel separated
her and another female student,
age 17, and from Glen St. Mary.
A complaint for battery was
filed the same morning by a 23-
year-old female employee at
Northeast Florida State Hospital
who told police she was groped
by a male patient, age 60.
The woman said she was es-
corting the patient to a day room
after she observed him commit-

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


Comedy debuts at city sports bar

Orlando duo talks stand-up, challenging venues


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
"To succeed in business and
especially in this market, you
have to be innovative and try
new things," said Debi Doyle,
who with husband Mark owns
DD's, a popular sports bar and
restaurant that opened last year
in Macclenny.
The couple brainstormed
about what would generate busi-
ness and provide a fun night
out for customers. A comedian
seemed like just the ticket.
Comedian John DeBoer, who
headlined at the restaurant Janu-
ary 20 and 27, was the first of
what the Doyle's hope to be regu-
lar comedic performances. Dar-
ren Moore, his friend and fellow
comedian, opened the show.
Ms. Doyle booked the come-
dians through The Comedy Zone
in Jacksonville and hopes to start
showcasing comedians at least
twice a month on Wednesday
nights at the restaurant.
Deboer is a 20-year veteran of
the industry. Moore, originally
from New Jersey, has been on
the comedy circuit for four years.
Both now reside in Orlando.
The two described their intro-
duction to Baker County to The
Press last week before a show.
"Okay, so we arrive in Mac-
clenny and drive up to this gas
station," said Moore. "John says,
'This is the place,' and I think he's
kidding, but he's not. I think, my
God, what am I going to say to
people in a gas station? Then it
occurred to me, hey, this might
be sort of fun."
Of course, he soon understood
that the restaurant was only at-
tached to the gas station, not
inside it.
The comedians shared some of
their experiences about working
in the entertainment industry.
Although they tried to be serious,
the humor couldn't be completely
suppressed.
"I remember my first show,"
said DeBoer. "There was about
400 people and I was so ner-
vous. Before I knew it I was tell-
ing some rather 'colorful' jokes.
Then a couple ushers came up
and threw me out of the wedding
Hee hee, ho ho, yukkity yuk.
Physically, every performance
venue is set up differently and a
comedian has to learn to work
the situation.
"DD's is actually a really good
set up for doing a comedy rou-


Benefit

for liver

recipient
"Hand up; not a handout" is
the theme of this year's Heart
to Heart Valentine Banquet on
Saturday, February 13 at the ag
center. Proceeds from the event
will be donated to Maggie Shook,
a former Glen St. Mary resident
now living in Jacksonville and the
recent recipient of a new liver.
The Baker Women's Political
Network is sponsoring the eve-
ning that begins at 5:oo and din-
ner an hour later. It will include
both silent and live auctions of
merchandise and services do-
nated by private entities.
Ms. Shook, 29, received a new
liver at the Mayo Clinic in Jack-
sonville on October 12 and is on
her way to a full recovery. She
went into liver failure in 2008
after years of steroid treatment
for Crohn's Disease, which she
contracted as a young teen.
She is an accomplished jazz pi-
anist who before she became too
ill to perform played at Jackson-
ville area restaurants and events,
and for a long period at the Ponte
Vedra Inn and Club.
Speakers at this year's Heart
to Heart are Wanda Walker, a re-
tired school administrator, who
will speak on "Maggie's Miracle"
and Greg Gaines speaking on
organ donation. Mr. Gaines is a
former morning DJ at WQIK in
Jacksonville.

tine," said Moore. "Not all places
are like that."
"For a comedy routine to suc-
ceed, it involves a lot more than
just having good jokes to tell,"
said DeBoer. "DD's has good
sound, good seating and a good
sideline."
Not every place has those
things.
DeBoer was once hired to per-
form in a venue that was not set
up for a comedian at all.
"There was this stage thing,
then the bar, then the people.
So the bar was actually between
the performer and the audience.
There was also an office Christ-
mas party going on in the back of
the room. It was impossible," he
said.
Experience is the best teacher.
According to DeBoer and Moore,
even seasoned comedians some-
times get thrown a curve ball.
"You have a joke you've used
forever that's never failed to get a
huge laugh," said DeBoer. 'Then,
one night you tell your foolproof
joke and the crowd just sits


there, staring at you with their
arms folded. I had this crowd one
night and nothing was working -
nothing. So finally, I just started
insulting everybody."
"What happened," asked
Moore.
"The DJ turned the music up
real loud," said DeBoer, laugh-
ing.
"I got hired by this sorority a
while back and I thought, wow,
this will be great," said Moore.
"But they'd hired a DJ too and
they were so busy talking to each
other they didn't even know I was
there."
Both comedians agreed such
situations are what is known as a
"kryptonite" crowd.
"Here you are, feeling like
Superman, able to always make
people laugh," said DeBoer.
"Then, along comes the kryp-
tonite crowd and suddenly, Su-
perman can't fly."
Luckily, there wasn't any kryp-
tonite to be found in Macclenny.
The two comedians encountered
lots of interaction from the audi-

ence. One group of feisty local
ladies really kept they guys on
their toes. DeBoer had a particu-
larly memorable exchange with a
woman who had spent her career
as an emergency room nurse.
"Ah-ha. And what's the most
interesting thing you ever saw on
an x-ray?" DeBoer asked.
Her answer actually caught
the comic off-guard for a split
second and had the audience
hooting with laughter. Regretful-
ly, the rest of their conversation
cannot be printed in a family-ori-
ented newspaper, but it was ab-
solutely hilarious. A couple folks
in the audience laughed so hard,
it appeared they would need help
walking out to their cars after-
wards.
After the show, both comedi-
ans said they were pleased with
the reception they received in
Macclenny. Each agreed it was
a good, friendly crowd, the kind
comedians are always happy to
play to.

In Loving Memory
of
Samantha Williams
2/8/1965 7/25/2009
Happy Birthday Sam
Sometimes I still hear the sound
of your voice, I wish you were
still here with me but you had
no choice. I know an Angel held
you as your body said goodbye.
But that doesn't stop my heart
from breaking... "I miss you
and I cry". No one can believe
that you are really gone, our
hearts are broken and our spir-
its moan "She was too y ,lng'".
I've heard people say "Why did
she have to die this way?"I try
not to be angry, I kneel and I
pray, asking God to be with
us, as we face each and every
day. I always try to give Momn
and Dad an extra hug and kiss
to make up for their "Sambo"
they will always miss. I under-
stand everyone's emptiness and
their sorrow too because "my
precious sister... we all miss
y iu ". I know you are happy in
Heaven above, surrounded by
the Angels and all their love.
But today on earth my heart
still grieves, because you are
no longer here to talk with me.
I will look toward Heavenfor I
know I will see a beautiful sister
waiting therefore me.
WE MISS You MORE THAN EVER!
HEIDI, TIM, BRrITANY
AND BRIANNA

Happy Birthday
We thought of you with love
today, but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yester-
day and days before that, too.
We think of you in silence, we
often speak your name. All
we have are memories and
your picture in a frame. Your
memory is our keepsake with
which we never part. God has
you in His keeping, we have
you in our hearts.
WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU!

Keller boosts reading


with literacy week fun


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Students at Keller Intermedi-
ate School participated in "Cel-
ebrate Literacy Week," Janu-
ary 25-29, which is observed in
schools throughout the state.
According to the Florida
Department of Education, the
purpose of CLW is to promote
literacy with the goal of raising
the enjoyment of reading among
children and adults.
Throughout the week, vol-
unteers from the community
served as guest readers, visiting
the classrooms and reading fic-
tion and non-fiction works to
students.
Teachers jump-started the ob-
servance by displaying book post-
ers of their personal favorites for
students to view in the cafeteria.
Each morning began with
discussions of different books as
well as selected classes present-
ing poetry on the school's morn-
ing news show. Students also
registered in the media center for
a daily drawing to receive a free
book.
Each class participated in a
book mark design exercise and
voted on the favorite one for
each class. Those 34 book marks
were reproduced and distributed
for all students to use. The book
marks featured bright colors and
personal sentiments from stu-
dents about literacy like: "You're
only a cool cat if you read: Read-
ing makes you a smarter person!"
and "Get into a good book; Read-
ing is awesome!"
One of the main events of the
week revolved around a school-
wide challenge to read and earn
2500 accelerated reading points.
Students who accumulated the
most AR points at the end of the
week were treated to a pizza party
in the school's media center.
During the week, teachers pa-
trolled, keeping a sharp eye out
for students reading on their own
time. They handed out Positive
Behavior Support (PBS) tickets
when they spied students reading
during lunch and while waiting in
bus and car lines to go home.
PBS is an on-going reward
program that encourages and re-
inforces good personal and aca-
demic behavior among students.


Another challenge issued to
students urged them to "Turn
off the TV/Video games and read
every night." To prove their com-
mitment, students had parents
sign a form supporting that they
did indeed spend their evenings
reading.
Friday was Favorite Charac-
ter Dress Up Day. Students and
teachers came to school dressed
as characters from their favorite
books.
On the first day of Celebrate
Literacy Week, Florida Lt. Gov.
Jeff Kottkamp issued a message
to Florida students about the im-
portance of reading.
"Everything you do, if you
think about it, from reading the
newspaper, to trying to figure
out what laws are being passed
to impact your life, just about
every aspect of your life requires
that important skill of reading,"
he said.

Boys heat up heading into playoffs


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
The Wildcat basketball team got back on the
winning track this past weekend as it defeated
Bishop Snyder and Union County. The Cats
wrap up their regular season February 4 at home
against Stanton Prep at 7:30 pm.
Baker High is 7-10 this season and most of its
wins have come in crucial district games, leaving
the Wildcats as the top seed in the district North
standings. The Cats will host the tournament
and open play February 9 at 7:30 pm versus
Baldwin.
The two recent wins had Coach Charles Ruise

aged by the inside play of Brandon Robinson
and Kendrick Singleton.
"They might not put up a lot of points, but
they are opening up things on the perimeter from
what they do on the inside," said Ruise. "It's just
not something that shows up in the score book."
The Cats got a big district win January 26 over
Bishop Snyder to run their district record to 5-1.
The 40-33 win was sparked by guard Marcelle
Gayden.
"He really found the place in the offense that
we were hoping he'd take up," said Ruise.
Gayden found his shooting rhythm and
scored 15 points to lead all scorers. Eleven of his
points came in the second half when the Wild-
cats needed them most.
Snyder opened on fire and led BCHS 18-17 at
the half. But the Cats found their scoring touch
and hit four three-pointers in the third period,
which proved to be the difference in the game.
Chris Walton had 11 points and Chris McCray
5 points.
The Wildcats had another big victory last Sat-
urday, January 30, in Lake Butler versus Union
County. The Tigers gave them all that they could
handle, including a thin 56-53 margin.
Chris McCray refound his scoring touch and
led all scorers with 16 points. Gayden hit three
3-pointers in the fourth period as the Cats
scratched back from a 42-35 deficit to go on a 21-
11 run and take the game away from the Tigers.
McCray's 12 first quarter points kept the Cats
even with the Tigers in a very scrappy game. The
teams were tied at the half before Union pulled
ahead in the third quarter. But BCHS wanted the
game more in the closing stretch and got a strong
defensive effort from Robinson and Singleton to
open up transition scoring.
Gayden and Walton each contributed 13
points. Singleton had 8, Donte Jennings 4 and
Robertson 2 points.

Lady Cats post three wins to end regular sea


The Lady Wildcat basketball
team is peaking at the right time.
With the district tournament on
the horizon, the Lady Cats, who
hold the number 1 seed, finished
out their regular season with
three straight wins.
The Lady Cats stopped Fer-
nandina Beach, Yulee and Brad-
ford to get much-needed mo-
mentum going into the District
3A North tournament here.
The team opened last week
with a 53-36 road win over the
Lady Pirates on Jan. 26. The Cats
blew open a close game with a 19-
9 explosion to end the first half.
Chelsey Ruise, who has been
coming into her own as a scorer
as the season progressed, had 24
points to lead the Cats.
After the second quarter surge,
the Pirates stayed close to BCHS
but the Cats held them at arm's
length. The Cat defenders all had
a good night and spread the re-
bounding chores around.
Ruise topped BCHS in scor-

on Thursday and pounded their
opponents 41-22. The Wildcats
pulled away early and never
looked back as they outclassed
Yulee.
BCHS was up 26-1o at half-
time and though they weren't
dominating from inside the
paint, they still were able to top
Yulee on the boards.
Ruise again led the Wildcats
with 22 points and de la Pena
had to. Osteen had 9 rebounds
and Parker 6 to lead BCHS.
The Cats had an even bigger
game on Friday as they demol-
ished rival Bradford County 61-
22 in their home finale.
BCHS started strong and just
kept on building the pressure
on Bradford. The Tornadoes
were down 27-14 at the half but

Big shoes to fill


for new coach
I suppose

Losing a coach

anymore and
Bobby Johns
departing for greener pastures had been rumored
about for some time.
Johns, who led the Wildcats to a 33-12 record dur-
ing his tenure as coach and three straight trips to the
playoffs did what smart coaches do he left while he
was on top.
Johns returns to the panhandle where he achieved
his greatest coaching success, a state runner's up
position in 2005. A year later, while at the top of his
game, he returned home to Baker County to take a 0-
10 Wildcat squad and turn them into a state power.
Though most fans would rather have seen Johns
in the red and white of BCHS than the blue and white
of Milton High, it was a good move for the coach. He
likes the area; it is a bigger school and another chal-
lenge to be met.
Johns leaves his hometown school in much better
shape than when he arrived. It has a better infrastruc-
ture and he's instilled a work ethic that bore fruit on
the field.
There's no telling yet who will succeed him as head
coach, but they will have big shoes to fill.
The Jaguars gained a little retribution on the field
Sunday. Quarterback David Garrard had gotten a lot
of stick after he was chosen as a Pro-Bowl Alternate.
Garrard didn't have a sterling quarterback rating and
several other quarterbacks turned down the honor
before he was added to the roster.
But on the field he let his passing do the talking. He
threw for 183 yards, including a 48 yard touchdown
strike to Vincent Jackson of Chargers.
Meanwhile, the other Pro-Bowl pick for the Jag-
uars, Maurice Jones-Drew also had a good day.
Jones-Drew had 30 yards rushing and a touchdown
for the victorious AFC.
The Pro-Bowl had a different look this year. For
the first time since 1978 it was not played after the
Super Bowl and not played in Miami. It was contested
in Miami as a warm up for the Super Bowl.
It was an experiment that might not be permanent.
There was a lot of flak from fans that none of the play-
ers from the Super Bowl teams were able to attend,
thus eliminating the top two passers in the NFL, Drew
Brees and Peyton Manning.


Kiana Parker had a big game
so n defensively with 12 rebounds. De
la Pena helped her cause defen-
sively pulling down 5 boards.

The middle school's basketball team finished its season January 21 with
57-45 loss to Madison County in the Florida Star Conference Champion-
ship.The 12-player squad of seventh and eighth graders went 6-4 on the
season, which began in early December.The Bobcats trailed by 31 points
in the third quarter of the championship game before storming back to
within nine points of their opponent. "The character the boys showed,
not to fold after getting down 31, it was tremendous," said head coach
Jon Mobley, who returned to coaching basketball this year. He added
that the leadership of students Brian Walton, Charles Ruise and Michael
Boone were instrumental in the team's success. Pictured above (in front
from left) are starters Joshua Allen, 14; Jesse Gardner, 14; Ruise, 12; Boone,
14; and Walton, 14; (second row from left) Eli Lee, 13; Jacovan Hollings,
