Arrest on sexual


battery charges

Macclenny's IT chief


A mid-level employee of the
City of Macclenny is in county
jail charged with sexual battery
and molestation of three then-
minor age females
dating back to 2002-
2004.
Marshall Mann, 45,
was re-arrested at his
residence off Lex Jones
Rd. south of Sanderson
late the afternoon of
March 29 and his bond
was set during a first
appearance the next af-
ternoon at $300,000.
Initially, Mr. Mann
was jailed on March
26 and released by Marsh
Alachua County Judge
Thomas M. Jaworski on a re-
cognizance bond the following
day, an action that drew the ire
of sheriffs department officials
close to the case and that of the
alleged victims and their rela-
tives.
The new arrest on Monday
resulted from an interview
earlier that afternoon with the
third alleged victim, described
as a friend of one of the other
two. Since it required a first ap-
pearance, it negated an effort
that emerged after the weekend
to get a re-hearing to cancel the
recognizance bond.
Mr. Mann has been em-
ployed by Macclenny full time
since December, 2003 as the
city's Internet and computer
technician. City Manager Ger-
ald Dopson said this week he
has been suspended without
pay, though he has access to ac-
cumulated leave.
The allegations against Mr.


hall M


Mann surfaced last year when
the boyfriend of one of the
victims "began noticing sev-
eral personality traits from her
which he believed to be
the result of her being
sexually abused," ac-
cording to a narrative
prepared by Investiga-
tor John Hardin.
The boyfriend con-
fronted her about his
suspicions, and the vic-
tim named Mr. Mann as
the perpetrator.
During an interview
before his arrest, Mr.
Mann signed a waiver
lann and admitted to hav-
ing intercourse with that
victim, but insisted it was but
once. He also said on another
occasion he may have been in-
toxicated at the time.
The victim alleges sexual
contact was on a regular basis
during that two year period. She
is now 19. The second victim is
now 21 and the third one is of
unknown age.
The second and third alleged
victims told police the abuse
consisted of touching and fon-
dling.
Chief investigator Chuck
Brannan said on Tuesday the
department has made initial
contact with the potential
fourth victim, who lives in Jack-
sonville, and hopes to interview
her this week.
Mr. Mann's official title is
information services director
at a salary of $48,663. Manager
Dopson said his employment
record at city hall is unblem-
ished.

Small rural libraries like the
Emily Taber Library on McIver
Street in Macclenny are among
the most threatened as the
Florida Legislature continues to
hammer out its 2010-11 spend-
ing plans.
April Teel, the library's direc-
tor, said that roughly 23 percent
of Emily Taber's annual budget
could disappear should propos-
als before the house and senate

Much of the funding doled out to small
counties like Baker bythe Florida Legislature
each year remains intact after four weeks of
session, said County Manager Joe Cone.
Cash to offset impacts from additional
property tax exemptions and caps approved
by voters in 2008, as well as money for road
improvements and garbage disposal remain
in the state's 2010-11 budget, which begins
July 1.
"This is not a good time to be rocking the
boat. Nobody's really damaged the small
counties," was the advice from the county's
Tallahassee lobbyist, Mr. Cone recalled.

Nonetheless, he and county commission-
ers Alex Robinson and Mike Griffis stood on
the capitol steps with other Florida Associa-
tion of Counties [FAC] members March 24
urging legislators to reduce costs for local
governments by an estimated $269 million
statewide.
FAC has identified more than two dozen
bills and policy positions that could impact
municipalities, both positively and negative-
ly. Among them is eliminating an automatic
1.5 percent annual increase in court costs for
counties.
'There was a big push regarding unfunded
mandates," said Mr. Cone, referring to addi-
tional responsibilities delegated to counties
by the state, without additional funding to

"Court expenses; that's one thing we talk-
ed to [Florida House Representative] Janet
Adkins about," he said. "It doesn't matter if
you need it or not, it goes up 1.5 percent. It
doesn't make any sense in these times."
Also on FAC's list of mandates to oppose
is an increase in liability caps under Florida's
sovereign immunity statutes for govern-
ment. In general, sovereign immunity limits
how much in damages government agencies
must pay as a result of lawsuits.
Bills proposing to increase the caps from
$100,000 to $200,000 per individual and

That's about 1500 people
in the workforce without a job
and few open positions close to

There have been less than a
dozen help wanted ads on the
classified pages of The Press'
first three March editions.
Worksource, a federally-
funded job placement and train-

on South 6th Street, reported
only 37 jobs postings from
Baker County in its system, but
roughly 350 registered job seek-

"Keep in mind that Baker
County, like several Northeast
Florida counties, has always
exported most of its workers to
Jacksonville and other places in
the region," said Worksource
spokeswoman Candace Moody,
"which increases the number of
opportunities available to Baker

However, neighboring Duval
County showed an even higher
unemployment rate than Baker

(From page 1
early 196os and Emily Taber
Library was receiving about
$66,000 annually until last year,
when the legislature cut a third of
the program's funding.
Exactly what the new cuts will
mean to Baker County's only
public library, and other rural li-
braries across the state, remains
unknown.
"Dade [County] gets over a
million [dollars] in state aid, so
who knows who would get what,
if anything," said the director.
"Now we're lobbying to at least
get the funding up to where it
was last year."
Some smaller libraries may
close altogether without the pro-
gram.
"In some rural locations, the
library is staffed by one person
and only open a couple days each
week," said Ms. Teel. "Those lo-
cations don't have a chance of
surviving."
Last week she and Terri
Brown, the children's program-
ming coordinator at Emily Taber,
joined other library staff from
across North Florida at the capi-
tol to protest the cuts.
They staged outdoors at first,
trying to catch legislators return-
ing from lunch, but soon joined
others inside the capitol building.
They had little contact with law-
makers at either location.
"The place is like an ant hill
with many ways to come in,"
Ms. Teel said, describing how
the group split up to cover more
ground. "[Legislators] try to
come in any way they can not
to have to see people like us. If
we said, 'hello,' they would say
'hello,' but they didn't even make
eye contact."
Since returning from Talla-
hassee, the local librarians have
been busy collecting signatures
on form letters decrying the cuts.
They'll be sent to Baker County's


two state legislators Represen-
tative Janet Adkins (R-Fernan-
dina Beach) and Senator Charlie
Dean (R-Inverness) as well as
Governor Charlie Crist in April.
"It sort of sucks your time up,"
Ms. Teel said. "You try to explain
it to everyone that walks in the
door, but they don't always un-
derstand at first. It's consumed
us ever since we found out [about
the cuts] ... I would hate to be a
lobbyist."
More than 26,000 messages
opposing the cuts have also been
sent off statewide as part of an
ongoing e-mail campaign. It
prompted a response from the
governor's office in support of
public libraries and their role in
educating children and the pub-
lic at-large.
"Governor Crist has demon-
strated unfailing support for li-
braries by personally appearing
at committee meetings to sup-
port funding during the 2009
Legislative Session," wrote Cole
Hoopingarner of the governor's
office. "Additionally, he recom-
mended continued funding total-
ing $21,253,978 in his Fiscal Year
2010-11 Budget Recommenda-
tions. Please be assured the Gov-
ernor is committed to addressing
the needs of our citizens while
ensuring that Floridians have ac-
cess to library services."
For more information about
Florida's public libraries, includ-
ing form e-mails and letters that
can be sent to legislators, visit
www.flalib.org.
"I just can't believe they've cut
us so much," said Ms. Teel. "It's
ridiculous. I wouldn't want to live
anywhere without a library."

Proof that he'd make a lousy bachelor


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD
I've come to a realization this
week. I would not have made a
good lifelong bachelor.
Since I've been married for 28
years, the chances of that were
pretty slim to begin with, but I'm
just not cut out for living alone.
What brought me to this con-
clusion is the simple fact that
I've been on my own the past
four days. They've been four long
days.
Every year, Kelley takes a
humanities group to New York
City. The kids see the sights, go
to Broadway plays, visit the mu-
seums and shop.
Some years I go along, but this
year I had to stay home and paint
backdrops. Snow White opens
up in three weeks and I have
five giant 12-by-30 foot scenery
backdrops to paint. It's a long,
time consuming job. So I stayed
home.
"What stinks?" my wife asked
when she entered the house last
night.
"Probably my dinner," was my
answer.
"Yuck. You've been eating that
stinky stuff again?"
I have a bit of a ritual when
Kelley is out of town. Some hus-
bands use that opportunity to
have poker parties, I cook stinky
stuff.
My favorite foods happen to
stink and Kelley won't cook any
of them because of the odor.
You're wondering what in the
world does this guy eat? But it's
really not that unusual.
My favorite foods include liver
and onions, corned beef hash,
rutabagas, beets, broccoli and
Brussels sprouts what Kelley
calls "Yankee food." To her, that
means stuff that smells like a
compost mound.
I've told the story many times
before of when I stopped eating
them around Kelley. She was
pregnant with Sara Beth and
went to bed with bad nausea. I
was left to fend for myself. So,
naturally...
I don't remember which of
those items or what combination
from the above list that I actually
cooked, but Kelley claimed I was
trying to kill her and our unborn
child. She said that any female
judge in the country would con-
vict me and throw away the key.
I had no real idea that foods
could be homicidal, but I quit
cooking them when she was
around.
Kelley often accuses me of
being a putterer, and I noticed
it this weekend. I didn't actually
get anything done, but I spent an
awful lot of time doing it.
I also discovered that when
there is no one in the house I talk
to myself.


"The first sign of a deranged
mind," she admonishes me. "If
I wasn't around you'd be one of
those men you see in the mall
or on the street walking around
muttering. Don't turn into a mut-
terer."
There's no danger that I'll
be a mutterer, but I did notice I
talk when I'm home alone. Not
long conversations or anything,
just little snippets like ... "Okay,


here's the plan. I'll paint the
dwarf house and then I'll ...."
A little while later I'd be wan-
dering around the house and
catch myself talking out loud "...
clean out the car and watch some
basketball." It was all non sequi-
turs that wouldn't have made
sense to anyone had they over-
heard it.
Of course there was also the
sleeping issue.


Or not sleeping.
Even though we have a king
sized bed, which is like being in
another time zone, I don't sleep
well when my wife is away.
I toss and turn and have weird
dreams. Of course when you eat
liver and onions and Brussels
sprouts that might have some-
thing to do with it.
This is not the first time I've
noticed this, and Kelley has the


Copyrighted Materia:


same problem. After 28 years of
marriage you get used to each
other's presence.
So I couldn't be a bachelor
for all those reasons. My house
would constantly smell like cab-
bage. I'd mutter to myself and
people would keep their distance
and point. My eyes would be
bloodshot from lack of sleep.
I'm glad my wife's home so I
can start living normal again.

Public unions and dwindling revenues


IMPRESSIONS
Jim McGauley
I'll start out by admitting my
bias, then get around to making
my point.
I don't like unions never
have. Once as a temporary em-
ployee at a can factory during col-
lege summers I was "encouraged"
to join but didn't. The shop stew-
ard hated college kids anyway,
so I had little to lose by telling
him to jump off the cliff (nicely,
of course since my rust bucket
car was parked outside and they
knew which one it was).
I'll concede that unions at one
time were quite useful as Amer-
ica industrialized, but then so
were kerosene heaters and buggy
whips.
So when I hear about the
fights that local governments are
having with unions in these days
of dwindling public revenues, my


sympathies side with, naturally,
the people who have to make the
revenues fit the budget.
If industrial and trade unions
are affecting some industries
adversely like in the domestic
automobile sector, then the grad-
ual infiltration of unions into the
ranks of government service is a
cancer of far worse proportion.
Back in the days when gov-
ernment service was properly
charged with essential functions,
there was little need for unions,
particularly when compared to


hazardous jobs like mining coal
three miles underground.
We're waypast those days, and
headed at mach speed toward a
society where the only remaining
highly paid union workers with
safe jobs are in (you guessed it)
government.
China and other export driven
economies are putting the "slow
death" choke hold on many pri-
vate unionized jobs in the US.
The only thriving unions appear
to be in the public sector.
And that spells disaster on the


scale we've seen in the western
European economies.
Are unions the sole reason for
this slide? Of course not.
But when I see a city like Jack-
sonville in a non-union nirvana
like north Florida paralyzed in
the budget-making process be-
cause of "ironclad" pacts the city
made with union pension funds
during good times, well, it brings
the dilemma to light.
Thankfully, Baker County isn't
saddled with similar, potentially
crippling, demands.


Facebook fans


'What you had to say ...


The Baker County Press has a fan page
on Facebook (that social networking
site you always hear about) for our
online readers to connect with us. It's
informal but effective in helping us
find out what they think. We asked
ourfans on Facebook March 25,"With
health care reform a foregone conclu-
sion, what's the best way to boost job
creation in Baker County?" Here's a
look at the discussion it sparked.

"How about a nice steak house? or
Krystals? Baker County needs something
for the young and older people to do.
Maybe a bowling alley. As a new dog
owner I'd love to see a nice fenced in park.
I see enough dead on the road. Lets have
some place to let them run"Tammy Craw-
ford McFarland.


"This was once brought up that we
needed recreation in the forms of bowl-
ing alleys and roller rinks, however; itwas
turned down when someone approached
to have the old Walmart converted into
a bowling alley and it was denied the
permit saying, 'there wasn't a market
in Baker County. I, for one, can think of
nothing better than something like this
out our way!" Elisa Lyons.
"We had a skating rink and bowling
alley back in the 50s. We also had TWO
movie houses, surely Baker County has
grown enough to warrant these activi-
ties. We have too many 'outsiders' con-
trolling/running our county. It's time the
county folks took back the county and do
what is best for all people that live here:'

would be perfect for a movie theater and

struck gold with the lottery, but I have
ideas to keep our children safe and occu-
pied. I believe if the residents were given
a poll of what they would like to have

slow food


On Point

In Print
Joel Addington

A breath of fresh air is set to
blow through Baker County this
weekend when the farmers mar-
ket opens its "doors" for the first
time Saturday morning on South
6th Street in Macclenny.
Look for the blue tents near
Crystal River Seafood and cross
your fingers for a blue sky over
head. This may sound like a
shameless promotion, and it is;
but not for the farmers market
per se, rather the movement local
farmers markets represent.
It's called the slow food revo-
lution, and its here in Baker
County.
As the moniker implies, slow
food is everything fast food is not.
I'm talking fruits and vegetables,
fresh from the harvest and void
preservatives, flavorings or other
additives.
You'll only find whole foods at
the farmers market, which means
they haven't been put through a
process that literally sucks the
life, i.e. vitamins and minerals,
out of them.
Plus, you'll know where those
fruits and vegetables are coming
from because you can develop
a relationship with the farmer
growing them.
Try asking the produce guy at
a chain store what kind of fertil-
izer his tomatoes were planted
with.
And then there's the most
obvious benefit fresh, whole
foods are good for your body and
mind.
In case you missed the news
flash, the rates of obesity, diabe-
tes and heart disease here and
everywhere else are out of con-
trol. By eating more fruits and
vegetables, and walking around
a farmers market to buy them,
you're killing two birds with one
stone.
Finally, by supporting a local
farmer, you support the commu-
nity in which you live, from the
banker to the bartender.


away:' Leigh Dubie.
"We are right off the Interstate, so a well
developed and maintained RV park is another
possibility for growth. The output of manu-
factured goods is minimal, and there is area
for improvement. If my memory servers me
correctly, the old Macclenny Products building
is available for someone to establish either a

DCF says deputy's


version is not accurate
The Department of Children and Families has a version of events
leading up to the hospitalization of the Mixon twins different than that
of Deputy Driggers.
The case worker did not describe their condition as "skin and bones"
as recalled by the deputy, according to John Harrell, spokesman for
the social services agency district office in Jacksonville. And the same
worker did not spend three days attempting to contact her supervisor.
Rather, she visited the Mixon home on March 19 on a regular visit,
when she discovered the feeding tubes had been removed.
Mrs. Mixon responded to the DCF worker that she was successfully
bottle feeding the twins and following "original doctor's orders."
"The worker was concerned about the removal of the feeding tubes
but did not feel the situation was an emergency and did not see indica-
tions that she should remove the children from the home," reads the
statement by Mr. Harrell.
Three days later, however, DCF during a case review decided to seek
a medical evaluation by the Child Protection Team because of uncer-
tainty over the bottle feeding. That review resulted in their hospitaliza-
tion in critical condition for dehydration and failure to thrive.


Dispute over speeding


Criminal complaints for bat-
tery were filed against several
parties to a neighborhood dis-
pute over speeding that ended
the afternoon of March 25 in an
accident on Creekside Dr. south-
west of Macclenny.
Scott Lightsey, 39, told Deputy
Shawn Bishara he has had mul-
tiple run-ins with Logan Rus-
sell, for speeding on Creekside
north from Woodlawn Rd. That
afternoon, he said Mr. Russell
did so again as his son walked on
the road from a school bus, then
stopped close by and the two be-
gan a verbal confrontation.
Mr. Lightsey told the officer
he was struck by the door of Mr.
Russell's pickup as it suddenly
backed up, and the truck then
reversed direction with spinning
tires near Dupree Rd. and raced
back to the scene.
This time, the pickup struck a
tree when Mr. Russell lost con-
trol driving around Mr. Lightsey.
A second verbal confrontation
then resulted, and included Mr.
Russell's teenage sister. The
fight was broken up by off-duty
jail deputy Lonnie Norman, who
lives in the neighborhood and
heard the commotion.


The brother and sister both
accused Mr. Lightsey of striking
them, charges he denied.
The Florida Highway Patrol
responded to the accident and
charged Mr. Russell with reckless
driving.
The state attorney's office will
make a decision on the battery
counts.
In other complaints:
Patsy Vinzant of Glen St.
Mary named son-in-law Da-
mon Katsikas of Jacksonville on
March 22 for violating a domestic
violence protection order by call-
ing her residence several times.
A 15-year-old male student
at Baker County Middle School
was accused of disorderly con-
duct and fighting the morning of
March 26.
The youth and another 15-
year-old male were involved in
a fracas shortly after 8:00, and
teacher Gail Combs was knocked
to the ground attempting to pull
them away from each other.
Campus deputy Tracie Benton
said teacher Anne Cassidy's fin-
gernail was nearly detached as
she also intervened. The fight re-
portedly was the result of a feud
between the boys' families.

SHIP funding should resume


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
A backlog of more than 30 applications
for the county-administered State Housing
Initiative Partnership, or SHIP, program is
expected to begin clearing at the end of April,
according to county officials.
For almost a year now, the use of roughly
$350,000 in SHIP funds has been restricted
to down payment loans of up to $8000 and
paid back through the federal government's
home buyer tax credits.
The move came after the Florida Legisla-
ture used dollars allocated to the state in the
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of


2009, more commonly known as the stimulus
package, to fund the SHIP program.
But under the program's new guidelines,
only one applicant received funding in Baker
County, largely due to difficulties for most
applicants in obtaining bank loans, said the
county's SHIP coordinator Arlene Griffis.
Meanwhile, grant applications for home
rehabilitation projects and new home con-
struction sat idle.
County Manager Joe Cone said he's been
informed by state Senator Charlie Dean's
office as well as the county's capitol lobbyist
Chris Doolin that the restrictions on SHIP
funds should end soon.
"All indications are those funds will be freed
up at the end of April," Mr. Cone said. "If you


want to put people back to work, here's an op-
portunity to go out and build some houses."
Once the money's released, Ms. Griffis said
the dormant applications will be processed in
the order they were received, though appli-
cants with severe disabilities or other special
hardships can be moved to the front of the
line.
Two Margaretta families, for instance, have
been tapped for immediate help. One family's
home was leveled by a storm in December
2008 and the other's residence sustained se-
vere damage.
Mr. Cone said he hopes to have those proj-
ects out to bid by the end of April and award
construction contracts as soon as possible.


Accused of firing bullets into houses


A Macclenny man was arrest-
ed March 25 on multiple charges
including firing pistol rounds
into two residences off MLK Dr.
the previous evening.
Both houses had multiple oc-
cupants but no one was injured.
Michael Jones, 36, of Glen St.
Mary was arrested based on iden-
tification by both Danyl Glover,
36, and Laronda Ellis, 23, who
was at a neighboring residence
when the incident occurred about
10:00.
Ms. Glover told Deputy Kevin
Jenkins she, her two children
and a friend were walking from
her mother's when the suspect
exited a vehicle in her front yard
and aimed the pistol at her.
She fled inside with the chil-
dren and hid in a bedroom while
she called police after hearing
one gunshot. She heard a second


one as the vehicle drove by the
side of her residence.
Investigator Steve Harvey said
bullets were retrieved from the
nearby houses of Corai Albrit-
ton and Annie Moore, and a shell
casing was found in Ms. Glover's
front yard.
The first residence had three
occupants that night; the second
one six.
Lt. Scotty Rhoden said police
had gone to the neighborhood
several times during recent
weeks due to an ongoing dispute
between the suspect and the
Jackson family. Officers in fact
had been gone from the area only
minutes when the shooting oc-
curred.
Mr. Jones was jailed for aggra-
vated assault, improper discharge
of a firearm, firing a weapon into
a building and criminal mischief.


Drunk man arrested

for cursing, exposure

An intoxicated Macclenny man found himself in handcuffs after a dis-
pute among neighbors led him to allegedly spout profanities and expose
himself on March 26 in front of several bystanders, including juveniles.
Deputy Koty Crews responded to a disturbance call on Deerwood
Circle in the northeast city about 3:50 pm and sawthe suspect, later iden-
tified as Daniel Bailey, 37, standing in the road "clenching his fists, yelling
profanity, threatening, and displaying obscene gestures" to neighbors, the
officer's report states.
One of them, Monica Carrow, said her family had been arguing most of
the day with neighbors she'd confronted about the killing of her dog.
She added that Mr. Bailey and others living at his address, 11187 Deer-
wood Circle, were attempting to goad her husband, brother and herself
into a fight.
Other neighbors confirmed her version of events, including the fact
that Mr. Bailey exposed himself. He faces two misdemeanor charges of
disorderly intoxication and indecent exposure.
Michael Jones, 36, of Glen St. Mary was arrested for disorderly in-
toxication after witnesses said he was yelling at customers and the clerk of
the BP station on W. Macclenny Ave. the evening of March 25.
Deputy Ben Anderson also noted in his report that the suspect had
been given several verbal warnings prior to the arrest shortly before 1:oo
am.
Catherine Wilkerson, 35, of Macclenny was taken into custody and
charged with disorderly intoxication after Deputy Kevin Jenkins found
her "extremely intoxicated" with bruises on her hands and face, and a split
lip at the Raceway station on Woodlawn Road about 3:oo am.
Ms. Wilkerson declined medical assistance or a ride home, and was
taken to countyjail for her own safety, the officer said.
A disturbance that drew a crowd in the area of South Boulevard and
Quail Lane about 1:oo pm March 25 resulted in two more arrests.
Eighteen-year-old Christopher Henderson of Macclenny refused
Deputy Erik Deloach's orders to disperse and wouldn't identify himself,
the officer's report states.
He was arrested for resisting a law enforcement officer without vio-
lence, a misdemeanor.
Deputy Michael Hauge arrested Romona Robertson, 22, of Joan Street
shortly after the disturbance, during which she was involved in a verbal al-
tercation with several individuals near South Boulevard and Joan Street.
After releasing Ms. Robertson from the scene, the deputy learned she
has driver's license restricted to work purposes, but observed her driv-
ing east on South Boulevard about 30 minutes later, coming from her
mother's house.

Two of the charges are felonies.
In a case of aggravated battery,
a complaint was filed against
NEFSH patient Brian Berendt,
44, for allegedly striking an em-
ployee and another patient with
an iron during the early morning
hours of March 28.
Anna Land of Lake Butler
told Deputy Koty Crews that Mr.
Berendt barged into her nursing
station about 2:20, grabbed the
iron and stuck her in the back of
the head. With the help of fellow
employee Lorraine Hyman of
Jacksonville, she fled the room
and locked the patient inside.
Before security arrived, Mr.
Berendt used the iron to at-
tack a 46-year-old male patient
who sustained several head lac-

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


Took laptop and camera

Neighbor implicates man in theft


The occupant of a neighboring
apartment in south Macclenny
was arrested late on March 26
for stealing a laptop computer
and digital camera.
Mendy Hance called police
about 10:3o after noticing that
the property and a tote bag val-
ued at $420 were missing from
a chair in the living room of her
apartment on South 6th.
Deputy Jason Bryan ques-
tioned an occupant of a nearby
unit, who recalled seeing Joseph
Marek run downstairs from a
second level and place what ap-
peared to be a bag in a 199o Acu-
ra parked outside.
Andrea Perry, owner of the
vehicle, consented to a search
and Deputy Bryan said the stolen
property and bag were inside.
Mr. Marek, 21, was charged with
burglary and grand theft.
He allegedly entered the
apartment through an unlocked
front door.
In other burglary cases the
past week:
Stephanie Underwood, 37, of
Gainesville was named as a likely
suspect in the theft of property
valued at $6660 from the resi-
dence of Melanie Miller north
of Sanderson the afternoon of
March 24.
Ms. Miller said she returned
about 2:00 and found Ms. Un-


derwood seated on the front
steps of her residence on John
Williams Rd. She described the
suspect as despondent over her
recent breakup with Ms. Miller's
son, and she asked Ms. Under-
wood to leave.
Once inside her trailer, Ms.
Miller told Deputy Allen Markley
she noticed clothing valued at
$500, a Gator blanket, ring and
pendant set and a diamond ring
valued at $4600 missing.
She phoned Ms. Underwood,
who insisted she took only cloth-
ing belonging to the ex-boyfriend,
and Ms. Miller called police after
the suspect failed to return the
property within two hours.
A warrant was to be sought for
burglary and grand theft.
Joshua Plummer, a suspect
in the burglary and false impris-
onment case that occurred in
Glen St. Mary March 3 and later
escaped from police custody, was
apprehended at the Macclenny
home of his grandfather March
24.
The day before, Mr. Plummer
and two accomplices allegedly
robbed a Jacksonville shopper at
gun point after the victim left a
Walmart, sheriffs office investi-
gator Chuck Brannan said.
"He got away," said the inves-
tigator, "and that picked up the
pace for both us and Jacksonville


[law enforcement] on our search
for him."
Mr. Plummer faces charges of
burglary, false imprisonment and
theft in the Glen burglary, and of
armed robbery in the Jackson-
ville case.
Dominique Daniels returned
to her residence off Circle G Lane
near Sanderson the evening of
March 28 to find it had been
looted of more than $1000 in
property.
Deputy Robert Simpkins said
evidence at the scene suggested
a chair was positioned under an
open kitchen window to gain en-
try, and nearby tire tracks likely
were from a small white pickup
seen on the property about 3:30
that afternoon.
Missing property included a
flat screen TV valued at $800,
a wallet and $5 cash, electronic
games and a console.
The owner had been away
since the previous evening. A rel-
ative told police the truck was oc-
cupied by two black males one
with short hair and the other with
dreadlocks.
Carrie Holton returned to
her home off CR 120 in the north
county the evening of March 26
to find a rear door had been pried
open and her prescription medi-
cation Hydrocodone taken.


Bank cards and IDs are stolen


Bank cards and other items
were reported stolen from parked
vehicles in two incidents the past
two weeks, the latest outside the
Country Club Lounge on SR 121
south of Interstate to.
Lori Smith of Macclenny told
police she locked her 1993 Chev-
rolet outside the club about 11:30
on March 27, and returned about
45 minutes later to find her purse
had been taken. Entry was likely
through a passenger window.
Missing property included a
bank card, $20 cash and a Social
Security card.
In a theft that occurred over-
night March 14 but was not re-
ported until a week later, Natalie
Giordano said a purse and con-
tents were taken from her 1995
Toyota parked off Creekside Dr.
near Macclenny.
Contents included a bank
card, $100 cash, a telephone and
identification.
Several incidents of vehicle
vandalism were reported the past
week:
A criminal complaint for


felony criminal mischief was filed
March 22 against Brad Weeks,
32, of Glen St. Mary for repeat-
edly smashing a parked vehicle
with a baseball bat.
Robert Martin told police Mr.
Weeks was distraught when he
appeared at a residence off St.
Mary's Circle in west Macclenny
about 9:45 that evening.
He was looking for Brian Be-
attie, owner of the damaged 1971
Volkswagen Beetle who was at
the address but stayed inside.
Mr. Martin and his step-father
Philip Ogden told Deputy John-
ny Hodges that Mr. Weeks then
brandished the bat and pum-
meled the front, back and sides
of the vehicle before throwing the
bat at it and departing.
A complaint for misdemean-
or criminal mischief was filed
against Romona Robertson, 22,
of Macclenny for puncturing two
tires on a 2005 Chevrolet SUV
belonging to Brandy Jones of
Macclenny.
That incident occurred over-
night March 26.


Mr. Robertson is also accused
of tossing an object and denting
the door of the same vehicle as
she attempted to block Ms. Jones
on MLK Dr. the afternoon of
March 27.

during 2009 and inched up to
12 percent from 11.3 percent last
December. Ms. Moody also said
roughly 690 people show up in
their system as receiving unem-
ployment claims.
Flagler County had the highest
unemployment rate statewide in
February at 17 percent, and Lib-
erty County the lowest with 7.5
percent.

occurrence, could not only cost
counties more when they're sued,
but may also increase liability in-
surance premiums by 50 to 100
percent, warns an FAC position
paper.
Fortunately, officials said,
state revenue projections are
rosier than previously thought.
"The counties appear to be in
pretty good shape, we were told,"
said Mr. Cone. "The [FAC] presi-
dent said that if you had asked
him at this time a month ago
whether we would be in this good
of a position, he would be hard
pressed to say yes."
More good news emerged for
small counties regarding Flori-
da's move to recycle 75 percent of
all solid waste by 2020. A bill in-
troduced in the house requiring
each county to recycle 50 percent
by 2012 was amended to hold
small counties harmless.
"Effectively, you are exempt as
long as you provide the opportu-
nity to recycle to your residents,"
said Diana Ferguson, an FAC at-
torney, by e-mail March 25. 'That
is in keeping with current law."
Small counties' minimal con-
tribution to the state's overall
solid waste load justified the ex-
emption.
"We could be at 100 percent
recycling and it wouldn't be mea-
surable statewide," Mr. Cone
said. "For us, when and if we
have to get into this business, we
could talk to surrounding coun-
ties about recycling at the landfill
itself and do some sorting at the
collection centers."
Despite better than expected
revenues for state government,
reports still place the budget
shortfall at more than $2 billion,

11 license suspensions


Driver with pot gives false name


One of five men this week ar-
rested for driving without a valid
license added to his troubles by
doing so with a small amount of
marijuana in the car and lying to
a deputy about his identity the
afternoon of March 22.
Rodney Carter, 35, with a Lake
City address, also had outstand-
ing warrants from Broward and
Columbia counties, which is why
he gave Deputy Robert Simpkins
a false name, according to the
officer's report of the traffic stop
on US 90 in Olustee.
Deputy Simpkins noted an
expired tag on the 2000 Toyota
Camry driven by the suspect
and pulled the vehicle over near
Ocean Street about 3:00 pm.
The driver had no identifica-
tion and admitted his license was
suspended, but couldn't provide
any information or documents
verifying he was Derek Thomp-
son.
During a search of the car's
interior, Deputy Simpkins found
a loan agreement with a different
name, Rodney Carter, and the
same birth date the driver initial-
ly provided, plus a folded piece of
notebook paper with marijuana
inside.
The officer's report states
the suspect still denied he was
Mr. Carter, implying it was his
cousin's name who had the same
birth date. A check through
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement's crime database
showed a Rodney Carter match-
ing the suspect's physical de-


scription, including a tattoo on
his left forearm.
He was arrested for driving on
a license suspended 11 times, a
felony; misdemeanor marijuana
possession and giving false infor-
mation to law enforcement, also
a misdemeanor.
Mr. Carter was wanted in
Columbia County for failing to
appear at a probation violation
hearing, and in Broward County
for violation of probation.
In other arrests for driving
without a valid license this past
week:
After following a Ford truck
reportedly involved in a distur-
bance at Mac's Liquors, Deputy
Simpkins stopped driver Winston
Williams, 38, of Macclenny near
his residence on Michigan Ave.
about 2:00 am on March 27.
The officer reported the truck
drove erratically down MLK
Blvd., turned east on South Blvd.,
north on S. 6th St. and then drove
through a stop sign at 7th Street
while heading west on Michigan.
A computer check revealed his
license had been suspended three
times for failure to pay child sup-
port, which landed Mr. Williams
in county jail.
Deputy Christopher Walker
spotted a driver not wearing a
seat belt near US 90 and CR 127
the evening of March 26 and
pursued the 2002 Pontiac sedan
onto Sanderson Circle where it
accelerated before pulling behind
a residence.

Kalin Graves, 24, of Orange
Park was stopped after failing to
signal his turn from the Kanga-
roo station on E. MacclennyAve.
the morning of March 23.
Deputy Jason Bryan's report
states Mr. Graves' license had
been suspended three times for
not paying traffic fines.
Deputy Earl Lord Jr. recog-
nized Daryl Norman, 28, of Glen
St. Mary as the person behind
the wheel of a 1998 Ford pickup
heading west on US 90 near 7th
St. in Macclenny about noon
March 22. He pulled the vehicle
over due to Mr. Norman's history
of license suspensions.
Mr. Norman was taken into
custody after a computer check
revealed his status as an habitual
traffic offender with a revoked
license.

In Loving Memory
of
Bernice Crawford
1/28/21 3/31/2005
Days are long without you, and
nighttimes are, too.
We listen and look to see ifyou're
here, and then we shed a silent tear.
Nothing is the same withyou gone,
but we face each day knowing that it
brings us closer to home.
One day the clouds will clear, and
we'll seeyou once again.
Then we'll all be together in our
Heavenly home and never be apart
again.
WILLIAM AND FAMILY

Thanks so much
The family of LeAnn Gainey
would like to thank the many
people who provided support,
comfort and love during our
loss. We would like to especially
thank our family, co-workers,
and friends from NEFSH and
the Baker County Health Depart-
ment. Also words can not express
the gratitude to our church family
at Christian Fellowship Temple.
Our church family went above
and beyond in the love they have
shown us. The messages brought
by our pastors painted a beautiful
tribute of LeAnn's kind and car-
ing spirit and the music brought
great comfort. We are so blessed
to have such caring people in our
lives.
Sincerely,
John, Zac and Deagan Gainey,
Debbie Norman

against roughly 40 other teams from schools around Florida, the students
landed outside the top 10, said academy instructor Gary Cook. BCHS's gourmet
meal team (pictured above from left) Megan Dolan, Dillon Yonn, Cam Hayes
and Ben Hefty traveled to the Orange County Convention Center for the event
March 27 along with the waiters relay team of (pictured below from left) Jen-

Defeats at Bishop and Yulee


Jordan Hand at the plate.


Girls falter late in season


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
After a bright start to the season, the Lady
Wildcats have faltered lately. This past week
they dropped three of four games with defen-
sive lapses. But their early season success and
a key win over West Nassau on Friday assure
coach Jamie Rodgers' team of a number 2
seed in the district tournament.
The Cats got a great pitching performance
from Cami Craig in Monday's away match-up
with Bishop Snyder. "But the defense really
let us down," said Rodgers.
The Cats went down 4-0 and it looked
like the Cardinals might be primed for a shut
out, but Baker High came back in the sixth
with a two out-single from Taylor McCann
that brought in two runs. But with the bases
loaded, the Cats couldn't get the hitting they
needed to win the game.
The Cats played a home doubleheader on
Thursday but their defensive woes continued
and they lost to Hilliard 5-3 and Eagle's View
7-2.
The team bounced back on Friday, shut-
ting out West Nassau at home 7-0. It did not
look like the same team that took the field on
Thursday, according to Coach Rodgers.
"I know I've said that a lot this year and
that's been the biggest problem being con- 4:.i
sistent. Some days we play really well and
others we couldn't compete in little league.
That has to change before the playoffs."
Craig continued to pitch well and Rodgers thinks
the shutout will help boost her confidence going


It was a miserable week for the
Wildcat boys' tennis team. On
March 23 they faced off against
Yulee, a team that had beaten
them 1-6 in February. It was an
even tougher result on the road
as Yulee put the Cats down once
more 0-7.
Later in the week, on Thurs-
day, the boys traveled to Bishop
Kenny for their first match-up
with the talented Crusaders. But
though the team was different,

the result was the same.
The girls had a similar strug-
gle against the Crusaders, losing
0-7. However they scraped out a
5-2 win against Yulee. Number 2
singles went to Logan Raulerson
8-2. Destiny de la Pena won the
number 3 singles 8-1 and Logan


Raulerson won the number 5
singles 8-2.
The doubles team of Carissa
Ward and Jessica Rhoden won a
hard-fought match 9-8, winning
a 7-2 tiebreaker. Number two
doubles team of Kari Crummey
and de la Pena won 8-3.

Boys top seed in the district


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
It was a busy and successful
week for the Wildcat baseball
team, which won all four games
to run their win streak to eight.
The Cats have gotten on a roll
at just the right time of the sea-
son and parlayed their strong
play into a top seeding in next
month's district tournament.
The Cats started out the week
at home on March 23 by defeat-
ing Baldwin 11-o with the game
ending early by the mercy rule.
The Cats pounded out nine hits
including five extra base hits to
down the Indians.
Chris Waddell, Thomas Sirk,
and Klate Duval each had dou-
bles while Adam Holland and
Jake Betros added triples. Dillon
Jones got the win on the mound
allowing just two hits while strik-
ing out six Baldwin batters.
The Cats then got on the bus
March 24 and headed downstate
to play Brevard Space Coast. The
surging Wildcats defeated the
Vipers 7-2. Thomas Sirk had a
double and Brad Stone picked up
the win to move his record to 2-0
on the year.
On Thursday the Cats played
their biggest game of the year
against district rival West Nas-
sau. Baker High dominated the

Warriors 9-5 to wrap up the
number-one seed in the district.
Waddell had one of his best
games on the mound, striking
out eight before giving way to
Cameron Crews in relief for the
last two outs.
Johnny Elasik had a double
and two RBIs while Klate Duval
added a double and Adam Hol-
land had two more RBIs.
On Saturday BCHS hosted
Williston in an afternoon game.


Williston jumped out on top
early to take a four-run lead. But
BCHS showed its determina-
tion and came back to defeat the
visitors 8-4. Corey Mercer had a
good day on the mound, allowing
only a pair of hits in four innings
to earn the win.
Elasik and Sirk had three hits
each.
The streak has thrilled Coach
John Staples, although he is
convinced that the best is yet to
come.
"We've scored 35 runs in the
last four games and have not
busted out yet offensively. When
we start hitting like we are ca-
pable, it could get scary around
here. I'm real proud of the boys
for wrapping up the one seed and
winning eight in a row after hav-
ing to put up with unwarranted
adversity early in the year."
The Cats are off until Thurs-
day, April 8, when they will travel
to the Fernandina Tournament.
They won't be resting, how-
ever, according to Staples. "We're
gonna take this time to work on
some hitting mechanics and
some small things we have not
been executing."

Pre-K ratings released

Tiny Tots boasts top score, gains


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
Almost all of the voluntary
pre-kindergarten [VPK] pro-
grams in Baker County showed
gains in preparing students for
kindergarten during the 2008-
09 school year, but at the top of
the list stands Tiny Tots Daycare
Center of Michigan Avenue in
Macclenny.
Eight of its students now in
kindergarten were evaluated in
two areas skills, knowledge
and behavior; and readiness for
reading with all students pass-
ing the former and 88 percent
the latter, giving the program a
readiness rate of 188, or the sum
of both percentages.
The Florida Department of
Education releases the readiness
rates statewide each spring. The
department narrowed the areas
measured this year from three
to two, reducing the maximum
score possible from 300 to 200.
"We just worked really hard,"
said Tabitha Gray, TinyTots own-
er since August 2007. "I wanted
it to be more than just a day care;
I wanted it to be a learning center
as well."
Tiny Tots' VPK included only
four children its first year and has
grown to 18 students this year,
the mother of five said.
It posted the largest year-to-
year increase in readiness scores
among the county's 11 VPK
programs. Last year, Tiny Tots
scored 225 points out of 300
possible, and this year 188 out
of 200 possible points, a gain of
almost 20 percent.
"The more opportunities you
offer the children to learn, the
more they're going to learn," Ms.
Gray said. "We worked really
hard to get those scores and we're
proud of the parents and kids.
It's not just a teacher thing; it's a
teacher, parent and child thing."
Special Blessings School Read-
iness Center on N. 7th St., which
had the second highest readi-
ness rate, also showed significant
gains with a roughly o10 percent
jump, from 248 out of 300 pos-
sible points last year to 186 out of
200 points this year.
Only one VPK program in
the county scored below the
minimum needed to avoid being
designation a "low performing
provider," under state standards.
In its first year here, the Head
Start program from Episcopal
Children's Services [EPS] on S.
8th St. posted a readiness score
of 136, two points below the min-
imum.
While all the 11 students mea-
sured passed the skills, knowl-
edge and behavior evaluation,
less than four passed the reading
readiness portion, which consists
partly of letter naming and pho-
netic awareness.
Students in EPS's other pre-
k program on South Blvd. per-
formed markedly better with a
readiness rate of 176, making it
the sixth highest in the county.
Florida's VPK program is
jointly administered by the De-
partment of Education, the Agen-
cy for Workforce Innovation and
the Department of Children and
Families.
The Department of Education
oversees standards, curricula and
professional development, and
accountability; the Agency for
Workforce Innovation admin-
isters the day-to-day operations
of the program including policy
development, financial manage-
ment and oversight of the 31


Early Learning Coalitions; and
the Department of Children and
Families provides oversight of
child care licensing, regulation,

program and the issuing of cre-
