THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


80th Year, Vol. 48. Winner of 9 state awards for journalism excellence in 2008


72 year

sentence

for sales

of crack
A circuit court judge this
week sentenced a Sanderson
man to seven and a half years in
prison for a series of undercover
crack cocaine sales in February
and May of last year.
Bryan Paige, 30, pleaded no
contest to
four counts
of sale and
delivery,
and a sin-
gle count
of posses-
sion. Three
possession
charges Bryan Paige
were Bryan Paige
dropped
as part of the plea agreement,
and two of the sales were more
serious felonies because they
were within looo feet of the
Sanderson community center
on CR 229.
He must serve a minimum of
three years.
Court records show that
sheriffs investigators arranged
for stealth buys from Mr. Paige
on February 20 and 28, and on
May 21 and 27. He was arrested
less than one month later.
In other sentencing by
Judge Phyllis Rosier on April 5,
a former Baker County resident
was given three years for vio-
lating probation on two grand
theft cases dating back to 2006
and early 2007.
Charles Ferguson, 28, began
in January serving a 20-year
sentence for attempted sec-
ond-degree murder in a Duval
County case, and the Baker
County sentence runs concur-
rently. Judge Rosier revoked
the early probation.
C Co-defendants Larry Holt,
22, of Glen St. Mary and Brad
Crawford, 18, of Jacksonville
drew three year prison terms
followed by four years on pro-
bation in return for no contest
pleas to multiple counts of bur-
glary, grand theft and theft of
firearms.
They were arrested for a
November, 2009 theft of a resi-
dence near Cuyler during which
six guns and a safe with $5000
cash inside were taken.
SThe state is adding a fourth
criminal charge against Mar-
shall Mann, 45, of Sanderson,
who was arrested last month on
one count of sexual battery on
a child between the ages of a 12
and 16, and two counts of lewd
and lascivious acts on young
girls.
The sheriffs department ar-
rested Mr. Mann, 45, last week

The Baker County Com-
mission on April 6 removed a
requirement in County Man-
ager Joe Cone's employment
contract that he reside within
the county a provision that
had been waived informally for
about three years.
An allegation by Glen St.
Mary resident Sharon Padgett
that Mr. Cone was violating his
contract by living in Columbia
County, and further by buying
a property in St. Johns County
last December, prompted the
action.
"If you're not going to honor
your contract, you should rene-
gotiate the contract," she told
the board, calling the latest pur-
chase, "a slap in the face."
Mr. Cone is one of at least
four county administrators that
reside outside the county, but
Ms. Padgett singled him out for
his leadership role. She called
into question both Mr. Cone's
integrity for not complying with
the contract and the board's for
not taking action sooner.
"I shouldn't of had to check
the contract," Ms. Padgett said
after the meeting. "As a board, I
feel they failed."

'Grand' opening for new farmers market

Annie Futch has enjoyed home--,;ro) n
produce for decades thanks to her hus-
band Thomas Futch's green thumb. And
though at 84 years old, he doesn't *_ro\\
much today, Mrs. Futch found suitable
replacements much closer to their N lac-
clenny home last weekend at the Baker
County Farmers Market.
"It's real handy," she said during; the
market's first day April 3. "My hus.ba nd
isn't able to garden anymore, but v e ius.ed
to grow everything."
Mrs. Futch, 78, left the farmers ma rket
with her arms full of onions, turnips a nd
greens.
"All my husband's got now is some
hot peppers. He plants them in a bucNk-
et. That's all he's able to do," said NIrs.
Futch.
The Madison County native
joined many others attending
the grand opening, which ac-
cording to organizers, patrons '
and vendors alike, was success-
ful.
"I think it started out real
well," said Jim Sharpe of Jack-
sonville, whose son helped
supply the morning's musical
entertainment as part of The
Bluegrass Breeze band. "They
got everything people like in the
spring time, especially the flow-
ers."

for fresh vegetables, which will be coming
in more as the year goes on. We hope to
be here every Saturday."
The farmers market, located on S. 6th
St. in the parking lot adjacent to Crystal
River Seafood and Peebles, is expected to
run through July, but could be extended
if vendors continue to supply fresh pro-
duce, hand-made arts and crafts and
other plants, said the nonprofit market's
co-chair Helene Guest.
Three produce vendors who signed up
for the market didn't show, one due to a
family emergency. All three have com-
mitted to future participation, Ms. Guest
said.
Six other vendors benefitted from
heavy foot traffic, however.
Sanderson farmers Eddie and Bett
Combs, for instance, sold two-thirds of
their vegetable plants by lo0:00oo am.
"Our tomato plants have done re-
ally well, and the bell pepper," said Mrs.
Combs.
The couple's booth also contained
okra, eggplant and watermelon plants
grown in their backyard greenhouse,
which she said helped insulate them dur-
ing this year's unusually long winter.
Patrons should expect a larger va-
riety of produce in coming weeks as
later-than-usual harvests take place. Ms.
Guest, a gardener herself, said squash,
cucumbers, peas and peaches should be
forthcoming.
Ms. Guest said additional vendors

Commissioners, however,
expressed support for the man-
ager, regardless of where he calls
home.
"If the general public knew
how much work Mr. Cone puts
into this county, they'd appreci-
ate it," said Commissioner Alex
Robinson.
"I wouldn't care if he bought
10 houses in St. Johns County
or any other county. I person-
ally don't have a problem with
it," added Commissioner Michael
Crews, who later praised Mr.
Cone's recent efforts to secure
a travel trailer for a Margaretta
family recovering from storm
damage.
"He treated those folks in
Margaretta like he lived here,"
said Mr. Crews.
Though Ms. Padgett said she
doesn't want Mr. Cone fired, she
criticized the board's nonchalant
reaction to the contract violation
and questioned why some form of
punishment wasn't considered.
The board's attorney Terry
Brown was not alarmed by the
commission's arrangement with
Mr. Cone either, and viewed his
lack of local ties as positive, par-
ticularly as a public servant who's
supposed to remain objective in
his duties.
"There's been no breach of
contract because that implies im-
propriety," Mr. Brown said. "This
was basically a waiver mutually
agreed by both parties."
By removing the contract's
residency requirement, the attor-
ney said the board amended the
document and wasn't renegotiat-
ing other terms in the contract


Arrests at

scene of

dog fight
(From page 1
he ran from the scene and left the
boy unattended among the pack
of dogs. Mr. Aldridge did not re-
spond.
Police then followed what was
described as a well-worn path to
a dog fighting ring equipped with
an overhead light that in turn was
powered by an extension cord
that had been connected back
to a house occupied by a woman
not connected to the case. The
officer said the ground along the
path and ring area were blood-
stained.
Deputy Clark also noted
bones, including dog bones,
strewn about the path.
Among the items seized were a
bottle of Blood Stop Powder com-
monly sold as a coagulant when
dehorning animals, two scales
and what the officers described
as devices for fighting and bait-
ing dogs.
Three other vehicles were
parked on the premises with
keys in the ignition. As of early
this week, the sheriffs depart-
ment had not learned the identity
of others who may have fled the
scene that night.
Mr. Gaskins was released
from jail on $1o,ooo bond; Mr.
Aldridge on $20,000 bond.
The confiscated pit bulls re-
mained at the animal shelter ear-
ly this week, awaiting a veterinar-
ian's examination and treatment,
which is typical in animal cruelty
cases, Ms. Monfort said.
She'd been in contact with
the Alachua County Humane
Society about a Gainesville-area
rescue that rehabilitates pit bulls.
However, the society's associate
director Eric Van Ness said it's
unlikely the rescue would take
animals from outside the area,
even if there's room for more
than a dozen additional dogs.
"The problem is they are really
difficult to rehabilitate and make
adoptable," he said. "It takes a
huge commitment of time and
effort and it's never guaranteed."
Once the county gains legal
custody of the dogs, which could
happen with a judge's order later
this week, Ms. Monfort said at


like the $95 per week Mr. Cone
receives for work-related travel.
He does not have a county-owned
vehicle.
Ms. Padgett wanted that taken
out, too; but a motion to elimi-
nate only the residency require-
ment passed unanimously.

No impact fees paid for
Baker County Sheriffs Com-
plex

Ms. Padgett also leveled criti-
cism for the county not collecting
impact fees from the Baker Cor-
rectional Development Corpo-
ration [BCDC], which owns the
sheriffs complex and oversaw its
construction last year.
Mr. Cone said that various
types of development com-
mercial, residential or industrial
- have associated formulas used
to calculate impact fees, but
there's no such formula for jails
or prisons, as they've always been
publicly owned.
Due to changes in staffing,
prisoner counts and associated
traffic at the facility during its
first year, Mr. Cone said he in-
structed the building department
to issue an occupancy permit and
collect the fees on the basis of a
future traffic study.
Waiting to collect could benefit
the county, should the 500-plus


bed facility reach full capacity.
"The more [vehicle] trips, the
more money we're going to get,"
said Mr. Cone. "They owe us. The
sheriff knows they owe us the
money. The BCDC knows they
owe us. It's not like they're going
to pick up and move to Switzer-
land. We need to have a jail."

Campaign sign ordinance
undergoing legal review

The effort to draft uniform
rules restricting campaign signs
in Macclenny, Glen St. Mary and
the unincorporated areas of Bak-
er County slowed down this week
when Mr. Brown saw changes to
a draft approved by the commis-
sion last month, from Glen's at-
torney Joel Foreman.
Though most of the revisions
were minor, one requiring that
signs be spaced at least 15 feet
apart and 15 feet from neigh-
boring properties, "may unrea-
sonably impair a citizen's First
Amendment right of free speech,"
wrote Mr. Foreman.
He recommended limiting
the 15-foot restriction to signs
from the same candidate or cam-
paign, which Glen Mayor Juanice
Padgett said the town council had
endorsed.
While Commissioner Robin-
son said Glen was wavering on


the board's goal of reducing sign
clutter during election years,
Commissioners Mike Griffis and
Gordon Crews said they favored
some of Mr. Foreman's revi-
sions.
"It clears it up a little bit, and
10 years from now it might keep
you out of court with freedom of
speech," Mr. Crews said.
The board tabled the matter
to allow Mr. Brown a chance to
review the draft rules and pro-
vide his own legal opinion to the

GPS 'voice' just

another critic of

his driving skills


I'm sitting in a hotel room
watching the NCAA champion-
ship and spend-
ing some qual- Y
ity time with my M l S
daughter, an
actress with a THE IV
regional profes-
sional theatre in ROBER1
Tennessee.
It was an odd
Easter at our house. I have been
assured by our friends that we're
unusual because until this year
all of our family has been to-
gether for Easter and all major
holidays.
This year was different and
though we didn't really talk about
it, having one of the clan 500
miles away put a damper on the
holiday. Usually, as soon as the
crowd wakes up they sit around
the hearth and we take pictures
of them holding their baskets.
Then they will root around in
their baskets and trade for stuff
they want. They have done this
since they have been old enough
to walk and talk.
Not this year. The boys didn't
really even want to have a lot
to do with Easter. It wasn't the
same without all of them there
together. I suppose that this is
what I have to look forward to
in the next few years. It doesn't
thrill me in the least.
It's a nine-hour drive to my
daughter in Crossville. I bought
my first GPS, a little TomTom
named Mandy. Yeah, that's right,
the thing has a name. Mandy is
English and keeps telling me to
turn onto the motorway.
I've never had one of these
things and they are a little ir-
ritating. For one thing, Mandy
is a bit of a nag. When I got off
the interstate for gas, she kept
saying, "Take a legal U-turn and
return to the motorway. Turn left
(?) miles ahead and return to the
motorway."
I kept expecting her to get very
forceful and scold me. "What?
Are you some lame git? I told you
to get back on the motorway. I
mean NOW!!"
I'm not sure I like Mandy very
much. I find myself watching the
screen, which has all sorts of in-
formation like speed, estimated
arrival time and the like. It's a
little distracting.
I don't need Mandy to com-
ment on my driving. I have Kel-
ley. She drove to Macon and then
I took over.
Here's the difference between
us. For four hours she drove and
not once did I mention anything
about her driving. I just let her
drive. She was going the right
way, why should I say anything?
Kelley, perhaps emboldened
by Mandy, did not follow that line

of reasoning. "Are you going to
turn on the cruise control?" she
said, to minutes
E OF after I took over.
DEl OF A few miles
later, after I still
ATTER didn't put it in
cruise, she said
3ERARD it again. "Why
don't you put it
on cruise?"
"I'm in traffic. I'll put it on
when I'm comfortable."
Later she pulled out her pillow
and curled up to nap. "Hey," I
said, "Hand me those chips."
She looked up. "It's late. You
don't need those chips." She went
back to sleep.
I looked at Mandy. I kept ex-
pecting her to say, "She's right,
you know. You need to watch
your waste line. And put on the
cruise control. Oh, and stay on
the motorway."
Sometimes you just can't win.
I'm being double teamed by my
wife and a virtual Englishwom-
an.
We finally got to the hotel and
daughter Sara met us there. We
gave her the Easter basket that
we brought and she looked at
what the Easter Bunny had de-
livered.
"I feel a lot better now. This
was my worst Easter ever. I was
so lonely. I didn't get to sit with
my brothers and open our bas-
kets. Spencer and Dylan called
me and they felt the same way.
It would have been better if
the boys could have come along,
but they had college. The best I
can hope for is that we'll all be
together for Christmas.
Random jottings The iPad
came out on Saturday. It's gotten
great reviews and I'm a big Apple
fan, but I can't see myself buying
one. I'm not really sure what it
does that the iPhone doesn't.
Sara Beth posed an interesting
question. What happens when
somebody from Boston goes to
the Apple Store and wants an
iPod? "Hey, buddy, give me an
iPahhd." He walks out with an
iPad and thinks, "that's funny, I
thought they were smaller."

Willie Green-a late blues 'bloomer'


THE BACK 7

PORCH
Kelley Lannigan


The blues is a musical style I've
long been aware of but have never
actively listened to.
I'd read a little about this dis-
tinctlyAmerican musical style from
time to time when I chanced upon
the subject in a magazine article.
From an academic perspective I
knew it developed primarily within
the black communities in the Deep
South at the end of the 19th cen-
tury.
It was characterized by an amal-
gamation of spirituals, work songs,
field hollers, shouts and chants all
characterized into simple narrative
ballads.
I'd read lyrics of blues songs and
knew they often gave voice to hard
times: The burdens and vexations
of daily life, being broke and having
nothing and quite often, love gone
wrong. They also fostered the gritty
philosophy that it's no use crying
over spilled milk and laughing at
one's predicament is often all you
can do.
Then, I read about Willie Green,
a living, breathing, singing, playing
repository of this uniquely Ameri-
can music and he was living and
performing practically in my neck
of the woods.
It was time for a road trip.
I made my way to The Yearling
restaurant in Cross Creek, about
20 miles below Gainesville where
Willie is the house musician from
Thursday through Sunday.
I went for the food, of course,
which I'd been hearing about for
a while, but I also went for Willie,
whose identity is now inextricably
tied to the restaurant. The blues
singer has become an integral part
of The Yearling experience.
As luck would have it, I was seat-
ed across from his small performing
platform in the main dining room.
It was an intimate setting, my table
so close I could speak easily to the
man.
Willie is slender of stature, gentle
and unassuming. He has the air of
one who has lived the hard times his
songs portray, but also the resolute
dignity of having survived them.
Jeff Klinkenberg, a columnist who


Willie Green plays the blit
writes for The St. Petersburg Times,
interviewed the singer, who was
once homeless, a number of years
ago.
"I had some tough times," Willie
told Mr. Klinkenberg, "but God has
led me here."


The singer's
luck seems to
have changed.
His most re-
cent release,
Cross Creek
Blues, attests to
that. Today he
plays with the
Willie Green
Blues Band and
performs in
various blues,
folk and roots
music festivals
through the
year.
My plate of
venison arrived
and I busied
myself with
eating. Across
from me, Wil-
lie settled
himself in his
chair, grasped
his well-worn
PHOTO BY KELLEY LANNIGAN guitar with
ues. one hand and
positioned
a harness holding a mouth harp
(harmonica) in front of his chin. His
lips formed into the barest hint of a
smile. He had noticed me studying
him.
"You been here before?" he
asked, his intense eyes locking on


mine.
"My first time," I replied. "I've
been reading about you."
He nodded, his expression un-
readable. He started to play.
Song after song, the distinct har-
monic progressions in 4/4 time and
the flattened third, fifth and seventh
notes of the blues major scale filled
the air around me. I fell easily into
the hypnotic "walking rhythms"
that distinguish these songs as Wil-
lie alternately sang and blew on his
mouth harp.
After a while he took a break He
looked up from his guitar and our
eyes locked again.
"So," he said. "You been reading'
about me, eh?"
"Yep. They said you are the "real
deal." I think they're right."
"I got started late," he said. "But
I caught up."
I finished my meal and started
on dessert. Willie had disappeared.
The hostess sat a couple at the table
next to me. The woman couldn't
hide her disappointment at the
singer's absence.
"He's just taking a break," the
hostess told her. "Don't you worry.
Willie will be playing all night."
The woman smiled and relaxed.
Like me, she'd traveled there espe-
ciallyto hear the blues.
I knew she wouldn't be disap-
pointed.

A Crawfordville, FL man ques-
tioned by a county deputy the af-
ternoon of April 3 after he pulled
up behind a disabled vehicle on
Interstate 10 near Glen St. Mary
ended up j ailed for felony posses-
sion of marijuana.
Charles Randall, 20, was driv-
ing the Nissan about 5:25 that
pulled off the westbound lanes
while Deputy Matt Sigers was
waiting in the median to cross
over to check the status of a ma-
roon van he noticed parked on
the shoulder.
The officer detected an odor
of marijuana when he inquired
of Mr. Randall why he and an-
other vehicle stopped. The driver
consented to a vehicle search and
police found a total of 29 ounces
of pot under a passenger seat and
in a door pocket.
Four male juvenile passengers
ages four through 11 were pas-
sengers in the Nissan, and Depu-
ty Sigers said they were released
to another adult traveling in the
other vehicle.
Police added a second count of


possessing narcotics equipment
when they found a socket with
marijuana residue suggesting it
had been used as a pipe.
In other arrests:
Dawn Garvin, 20, of Jack-
sonville was arrested for misde-
meanor marijuana possession
the evening of April 2 after she
was caught shoplifting greeting
cards from the Walmart Super-
center.
Deputy Randy Davis said he
found a small baggie of the drug
in Ms. Garvin's purse. Also ar-
rested for shoplifting in the same
case was Etorial Plant, 22, of
Jacksonville.
James Hodges, 46, of Mac-
clenny was arrested for disor-
derly intoxication the evening of
April 4 after he yelled obscenities
to members of a church league
softball team at practice.
Witnesses told Deputy Rod-
ney Driggers that Mr. Hodges
stood in the roadway aside the
Knabb Sports Complex on W.
Ohio and repeatedly slammed a
baseball bat into the pavement

Terrence Guyden, 35, of
High Springs, FL was jailed for
disorderly conduct after he was
found beside his disabled Dodge
van at Ivey and Lowder St. in
Macclenny early on April 4.
Deputy Kevin Jenkins said he

trol about 5:50 am and noted it

did not know how the tires and
wheels were damaged.

Twin also
Two defendants of the origi-
nal four arrested for the night
burglary of the Macclenny Bad-
cock store in July, 2009 were
sentenced during the past two
weeks, one of them drawing the
identical prison time given ear-
lier to his twin brother.
Justin Wescott, 21, of Jack-
sonville was given a 20-year term
in prison by Circuit Judge James
Nilon on March 29 for burglary,
and a 10-year concurrent term
for grand theft of appliances and
other inventory that was being
loaded onto a stolen rental truck
that morning when police re-
sponded to the store alarm.
He will be on probation five
years following release from
prison and, like his brother, was
adjudicated as an habitual of-
fender.
Mr. Wescott was convicted
after representing himself at trial
in December. His first trial ended
in a hung jury.
In the second sentencing, Roy
Dillon, 25, of Jacksonville was
given a five-year probation by
Judge Phyllis Rosier on April 5
after entering no contest pleas
to two counts of grand theft and
burglary. The state dropped a
charge of felony criminal mis-
chief and gave Mr. Dillon credit

Pickup, property stolen


While owner was away two weeks


Rescue workers remove Ms. Wilson from scene of a three-vehicle collision on South Boulevard


Hit-run driver is arrested


It didn't take long for police to
locate the driver of a truck that
hit Natalie Wilson's 2002 Jeep as
it idled behind a stopped school
bus unloading students the af-
ternoon of March 31, despite the
suspect fleeing the scene on foot.
The suspect, Leroy Spatcher,
62, of Macclenny faces multiple
charges including DUI, leaving
the scene of an accident, driving
with a revoked license and driv-


ing with an open container of
alcohol.
While attempting to overtake
Ms. Wilson's vehicle about 3:30
pm on South Boulevard near
Joan Street, Mr. Spatcher's 2001
Chevy pickup struck the rear
of the Jeep, causing it to crash
into the back of the school bus,
states a report from Trooper H.J.
Cichoski Jr. of the Florida High-
way Patrol.


Both the suspect and Ms. Wil-
son were treated for minor inju-
ries at Fraser Memorial. Neither
the school bus driver, nor seven
students on the bus at the time of
the crash were injured.
Ms. Wilson's SUV suffered an
estimated $10,000 in damage.
Estimates on the school bus and
Mr. Spatcher's truck were $1200
and $5000, respectively.


Student threatens another wit


A 13-year-old male student at
the county's Alternative School
was arrested on April 2 for pulling
a pocket knife on another student
who refused to give up his seat on
a school bus that morning.
Police were called to the
school for disruptive students by
Principal John Staples, who was
told of the incident shortly after
students arrived for classes. The
accused allegedly held the knife
briefly to the throat of the second
student, also 13, who then sus-
tained a cut on his thumb when
he deflected the knife.


Another bus rider, a 15-year-
old female, reportedly then took
the knife from the assailant and
gave it back to him before she got
off the bus.
The girl told Deputy Kevin
Jenkins she did not see the actual
confrontation, though other stu-
dents did, and that she witnessed
the accused threatening other
students, "and telling them he
was going to cut somebody."
The youth, from Glen St.
Mary, is charged with aggravated
assault with a deadly weapon, a
third-degree felony. The other


boy is from the Sanderson area.
Two other students were ar-
rested in the days leading up to
spring break this week, both fe-
males and both charged with bat-
tery on the Baker High campus
about the same time on March
30.
Kristie Alford, 18, of Sand-
erson was arrested for accosting
a 16-year-old female about 9:oo
am. The accused told campus
deputy Matt Riegel she was angry
because she saw the younger girl
talking to her boyfriend.
Minutes earlier, a 15-year-


A Sanderson woman returned
home after a two-week absence
to find that someone had re-
moved an old pickup truck and
$5500 worth of tools and other
property.
Carolyn Plemmon reported
the thefts on March 31 and was
unable to give police any leads as
to who may have been respon-
sible. The missing property in-
cluded a 1986 Ford Ranger that
was not in running condition and
had not been registered for about
a decade.
Other items that had been re-
moved were a riding lawn mower,
tool chest, car dolly, an air tank,
welder and freezer.
In other recent theft reports:
Cheryl Cline called police
when she learned April 1 that a
lawn mower and air conditioner
handler were taken from a resi-
dence on Whippoorwill Rd. near
Sanderson.
A neighbor had called the
owner, who lives in Jacksonville,
to report an open door and bro-
ken window at the unoccupied
residence. The same neighbor
told Ms. Cline of a black Nissan
truck with a rear window missing
in the area two days earlier.
A surveillance camera cap-
tured the image of a lone black
male smashing the front door of
the BP convenience store on US


h a knife
old female student from Mac-
clenny allegedly attacked another
girl outside the cafeteria. Deputy
Riegel said the accused broke
free of school administrators and
had to be chased down and sub-
dued when she tried to get at the
other girl, also 15 and from Mac-
clenny.


90 in Macclenny about 3:15 the
morning of March 30.
The suspect, dressed in a dark
jacket with what appeared to be
a round yellow emblem on the
hood, took two boxes of cigars
and damaged another surveil-
lance camera with a 4X4 piece
of lumber he brought into the
store.
Deputy Rodney Driggers noted
two large rocks on the floor that
may have been used to smash the
front glass door valued at $800.
The cigars were valued at $18.
A wallet and contents belong-
ing to Jeremiah Daniel of Mac-
clenny were taken from his Ford
Explorer while it was parked the
afternoon of April 4 in west Mac-
clenny.
The wallet contained $1oo,
credit and debit cards and iden-
tification.
A 14-year-old resident of


Camp Tracey near Taylor was
arrested for entering the dorm
room of a camp counselor about
4:00 am on March 29. The coun-
selor, Jessica Jones, 27, said she
awoke to find the youth partially
clothed and standing by her bed.
When she screamed and at-
tempted to detain the boy, he fled
the room. He was charged with
burglary.
Edward Hall reported to po-
lice that his water well and pump
were vandalized between 6:00-
9:oo am on March 29. He lives
on Crews Rd.
Sarah Griffis of Sanderson
said her vehicle was struck by
an object likely thrown by sub-
jects standing near CR 127 near
Jonesville Park the evening of
March 29.
A golf ball-size dent was evi-
dent on the passenger side door.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


'Ready, sweat, go!' for 10 weeks


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
Are you 50 pounds or more
overweight but committed to
working it off through 10 weeks of
rigorous exercise and a strict diet?
Ten Baker County residents said
they were, and last month joined
the YMCA's newest initiative
Ready Sweat Go!
In a county where close to a
third of the population is obese
and at a higher risk for a litany
of adverse health conditions like
heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and
cancer, the program's organizers
say it can literally save lives.
The to participants, who range
in age from 16 to 57, will serve as
test cases for the Ready Sweat
Go! program. The group of seven
women and three men were nar-
rowed from a list of 20 applicants
and paired up largely by the time
of day they're available to work
out.
YMCA trainer Kassandra
Scherer, who has been with the
facility for four years, said par-
ticipants were also given partners
with similar fitness goals and bar-
riers to fitness, like eating habits
or lack of support from friends or
family.
"We're trying to make workout
partners for life," she said.
The regimented workouts
with the personal trainers Ms.
Scherer, Michelle Escobar, and
nutritionist.yoga-instructor Mar-
cy Knight began April 5 and
will continue during the next two
months.
The physical portion of the
program consists of three days a
week of trainer-led workouts at
the YMCA, more focused classes
every other Saturday on things
like stretching, kick boxing and
combining 30 minutes of cardio-
vascular exercise with 30 minutes
of strength training; and at-home
exercises like walking or crunch-
es.
'"The idea is to increase inten-


Charged
A Sanderson man was jailed
the evening of April 4 and
charged with felony domestic
violence battery for choking his
girlfriend, who then briefly lost
consciousness.
Sheila Crews, 31, told Deputy
Dan Nichols that George Strick-
land, 45, followed her into the
bedroom of their residence off
Cedar Creek Dr. and struck her
about the head and face after
holding her down and choking
her. The two had earlier argued
outdoors, and the girlfriend said
she went to the house to get away
from Mr. Strickland.
Deputy Nichols said that Ms.
Crews' face and neck bore signs
of the attack.
She alerted several other per-
sons outside by banging on the
bedroom window, and they came
to her assistance. Mr. Strickland
then fled the area but returned
later to deny that he physically
attacked Ms. Crews. He was then
arrested.
In other cases:
Ramona Robertson, 22, of
Macclenny was arrested during
the early morning hours of April
3 on multiple charges including


sity over time and expose them to
different kinds of exercises," Ms.
Scherer said.
Each week participants will


also attend healthy
living classes focused
on topics like reading
nutrition labels, how
the body's metabo-
lism works and good
versus bad fats.
They'll keep jour-
nals to track diets and
workouts, document
their reactions to the
program and include
motivational quotes
or scriptures a new
one each week to
share with the larger
group.
"It's so they know
how they're feeling
-J- good or bad and
they can get their
frustrations out," she
said. "We really want
to get into their emo-
tional and physical
well being. It's a major commit-
ment."
Ready Sweat Go! has been


with felony battery


violating a court order that she
stay away from Brandy Jones,
24, also of Macclenny.
Ms. Robertson is charged with
confronting Ms. Jones on MLK
Dr. in the west city about 1:00
am and pulling her hair through
an open window of the victim's
2005 Chevrolet SUV.
Ms. Jones also told Deputy
Shawn Bishara that the accused
drove her 1998 Nissan into the
path of her SUV and caused mi-
nor damage to the bumper.
Ms. Robertson was booked at


county ail for violating the order,
aggravated assault, battery and
criminal mischief.
Vanna Hamilton, 26, of
Sanderson was named in a crimi-
nal complaint for violating a do-
mestic violence order by phoning
ex-husband Michael, 25, of Mac-
clenny.
Deputy Robert Simpkins said
the call was made during the day
March 31, and tape recorded. Ms.
Hamilton was reached later and
admitted she was checking on
the couple's children.

modeled after similar efforts at
other YMCA's in the region that
cost roughly $400.
Besides being free, Ms. Scherer
said the local program is also dif-
ferent because it includes more
time 30 hours with a personal
trainer and specifically targets the
overweight or obese, as measured
by Body Mass Index [BMI].
The progress of each Ready
Sweat Go! participant will be de-

how many push-ups and sit-ups

The effort will culminate with

junction with the YMCA's annual

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


Fashion 'garden'

MWC annual spring gala


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
A Garden of Fashion was the
theme of the Macclenny Wom-
an's Club's annual spring fashion
show held March 27.
The fashions and talent enter-
tainment were presented in three
sections entitled Buttons, Bows
and Zippers, narrated by Shelli
Neri; In the Garden, narrated by
Flo Holloway and through the
Looking Glass, narrated by Anita
Gerson.
The garden theme stage was
designed by Mark Lyons, Anita
Gerson and Carol Nelson.
Prominent in the garden were
two pale lime green patio chairs
in which sat a life-sized Raggedy
Ann Doll and a rabbit. A flowing
fountain bubbled merrily nearby.
Folding screens, gold curtains,
large live palms, potted pink hy-
drangeas and purple petunias de-
fined the rest of the stage. Models
passed through an ivy covered
arch entwined with tiny white
lights as they took the runway.
A lovely component of the
fashion show was the inclusion
of numerous Baker County fam-
ily members modeling group
fashions.
A local quality clothing re-sale
business, Buttons and Zippers,
owned and operated by Lisa Mil-
ton, furnished the fashions mod-
eled in the first act of the show.
This segment featured lovely
prom and evening gowns. Ms.
Milton, her husband and young
son also modeled as a family.
In the Garden opened with a
lovely acapella rendition of the
beloved hymn of the same title
sung by well-known Olustee vo-
calist Gail Moore.
"It was so absolutely beau-
tiful it made people cry," said
Anita Gerson. "I looked around
and there wasn't a dry eye in the
place. People were stunned at
the power and majesty of that
woman's voice."
In the Garden focused on
spring dresses and attire typical
of a garden party. There were
lots of bright cotton prints and
the emphasis was on bows and
sashes, everything pretty and
feminine. Sisters Sophia and Mi-
chaela Ramondetta, ages three
and four, were a hit in duplicate
chiffon dresses in shades of hot
pink, apple green, yellow and
blue accented with wide pink
sashes. Also visually delightful
were identical twins Hope and
Grace Fly in their bright spring
dresses as they modeled with
their mom, Faith Fly.
Peebles clothing store in Mac-
clenny brought in fashions and
models for the third section. They
came out in beach and cruise at-

Disabled student

trict's exceptional education de-
partment is inviting all disabled

tire. Their beach balls held a gift
certificate and the audience be-
came quite lively trying to grab
for them as the models tossed
them into the audience. The store
also gave away numerous fash-
ionable tote bags as door prizes.
Baker County High School
was represented by models Be-
yonka Deanna Combs, 2009
Homecoming Queen and Jenni-
fer Nguyen, valedictorian for the
2010 graduating class.
Two unique dresses were worn
by Mamie Cole and Nazarene
McKinney. Ms. Cole's dress was
a tribute to Native American his-
tory. The soft green tunic dress
with beaded collar and sleeves
was accented with matching
moccasins and headband.
Ms. McKinney delighted the
audience by modeling a vivid
fuscia colored skirt and blouse
ensemble she purchased from
Karelle's Dress Shop, which op-
erated in downtown Macclenny
two decades ago. It still fit per-
fectly!
Entertainment during this
segment included a solo clarinet
performance by Joseph Thomas,
grandson of long-time Macclenny
Woman's Club member and for-
mer president Francis Frost. The
audience politely applauded his
performance, of course, but then,
when it was announced that the
young man is legally blind, the
audience really went wild.
"I looked over at Francis and
she was just boo-hooing, she was
so proud," said Ms. Gerson.
Marva Williams and daugh-
ter April modeled in the show,
but also wowed audiences with a
singing impersonation of Diana
Ross and the Supremes. They
were joined by Belinda Green to
make up the famous threesome.

The Family Easter Celebration
sponsored by The First Baptist
Church of Glen St. Mary took
place April 3 at Celebration Park
in Glen St. Mary.
Nearly 300 people took part.
The increasingly popular
event is now in its third year and
includes egg hunts for children
from infants to fifth grade. Fol-
lowing the conclusion of the egg
hunts, senior pastor Randy Wil-
liams gave a presentation on the
story of Easter for the children.
Afterwards, lunch was served.
Pastor Williams described the
Easter celebration as the church's
way to connect to its community
and as a chance for children to
have a fun family outing in a safe,
pleasant environment.
"Through supporting events
like this our purpose is to send a
message to the community, espe-
cially those that may not have a
church family," said Pastor Wil-
liams. "That message is that the
church is not staid or dull, but
actually a lot of fun. Its purpose
is for us to have an abundant life
through Christ."
Families started trickling in
to register about one hour before
to the egg hunts began at 11:30.
Throngs of children showed up,
many in cute Easter attire and
brandishing decorated baskets.
For some, the baskets were as big
as they were. Several areas across
the park were cordoned off for the
hunts and with such open space,
there were few places to actually
hide eggs. That's where creativity
took over.
In the youngest children's
field, bright colored plastic eggs
were generously dumped all over
the ground to make access easy.
On the count of three, the babies
poured in and began scooping up
eggs with the help of moms and
grand moms who were also busy
taking pictures.
In the older children's areas,
lots of props were brought in.
"We actually base this event
on a church curriculum Easter
program called Creation Eggs
and we put our own spin on it,"
said Pastor Williams. "The idea
is to re-create an area as much
like a person's actual backyard as
possible."
The fifth grader's field con-
tained a real clothesline, an
overturned wheel barrow, plastic
milk crates, flower pots, chairs,
a gazebo and other items one
would typically see in someone's
yard. Eggs were freely and vis-
ibly scattered here too, but many
were hidden around the objects

as well.
When children had full bas-
kets, they sat down in a large
huddle to examine their egg's
contents and get ready to hear
and see the story of Easter.
In front of the children, Mr.
Williams stood before a table
which held a variety of visual aids
representing the main objects
found in the Biblical accounts
of the last supper and Jesus' be-
trayal, persecution, crucifixion
and resurrection.
He held each object up as
he moved through the story's
events: a palm branch, wine gob-
let and loaf of bread, 30 pieces of
silver, whip, nail spikes, crown of
thorns, spear, shroud and a large
egg-shaped box symbolizing the
empty tomb.
"The event has grown with
each year," said Rev. Williams.
"We're now getting people who
are just driving by who don't
know anything about it but who
stop and decide to participate."
When asked about rain dates
and locations, he smiled and
glanced at the morning cloudi-
ness which was giving way to
clear blue sky.
"It would be set up inside a
church building, but so far we've
been blessed," he said. "We've
never had to do that."

BCHS mock trial team covets

'most professional' at state meet


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Eight students from Baker
County High School traveled
to Orlando to participate in the
Florida High School Mock Trial
Competition held April 5-7.
As well as an outstanding
performance overall, the Baker
County team was the recipient
of the most professional conduct
award.
The 2010 participants from
BCHS were: Lindsey Cannon,
Shayla Coleman, Brooke Potts,
Liz Frey, Kelsey Benton, Billie
Murray and Shirley Duran.
The mock trial is an academic
competition sponsored by The
Florida Law Related Education
Association, Inc. (FLREA). It
gives an opportunity for students
to simulate the roles of both at-
torneys and witnesses in fictional
trial situations and is the most
hands-on, intensive learning sim-
ulation of the trial process avail-
able to high school students.
The event also helps them
improve and strengthen an ap-
preciation of democracy through
practical, hands-on law related
and civic education programs.
A group of actual law stu-
dents write a case for each year's
competition. High school teams
download the case files and re-
lated materials which is posted
on-line by FLREA, Inc.
BCHS forensic science instruc-
tor Ed Johnson and the team
started preparing last October.
"I don't do anything unless
I do it 100 percent," said Mr.
Johnson.
That philosophy spills over
into the rigors of preparation his
students faced getting ready for
the competition and he admits
he pushed the team hard.
It paid off, too. Real-life judges
and lawyers serve on the panel
that judges the student perfor-
mances. The BCHS team received
numerous compliments on their
preparation and delivery.
'The girls from Baker County
certainly held their own," said

Mr. Johnson, "I was
told numerous times
by legal professionals
involved in the mock
trials that these girls
were better then many
actual lawyers they've
dealt with. Several of
them said they even
knew law firms that
would hire these girls
right now!"
To prepare for the
mock trials, the BCHS
teams met two after-
noons a week for seven
months in a classroom
set up like a courthouse


equipped with a judge's
bench, a witness stand and juror's
area.
Behind the bench hangs an
large copy of the United States
Constitution and an American
flag stands nearby. It was here
the team grappled with the chal-
lenges of learning every detail of
their case and engaging in exer-
cises such as formulating the spe-
cific questions to be used while
examining a witness.
Mr. Johnson sat in the judge's
chair and the students alternately
took on the roles of prosecutor,
defense attorney and witness.
They practiced opening state-
ments, closing arguments and
presenting evidence.
Through the process they
learned the protocols of conduct


Lindsey Cannon practices cross examination.


like how to approach a witness
or the bench, the importance of
using clear and precise language
and grammar, and projecting
their voices to be heard by every-
one in the courtroom.
Mr. Johnson even solicited
help from the Baker County
courthouse. Public defenders
George Nelson and Julie Johnson
lent their expertise by observing
the students during preparation
and offering constructive criti-
cism. According to Mr. Johnson,
such extra measures went a long
way in boosting his team's per-
formance.
"I know the girls think I was
tough on them, but the law is
serious business," said Mr. John-
son. "I wanted them to be the
best they could possibly be."

FAT LADY
ROBERT GERARD


It's a sure sign that spring is
here when baseball is in the air.
High school baseball is in full
swing with the Wildcats and Lady
Wildcats winning consistently.
Major League Baseball kicked off
earlier this week.
Also right around the cor-
ner is the first home stand for
the Southern League champion
Jacksonville Suns, who won the
championship last season and
will start their defense of the title
this Thursday against West Ten-
nessee.
The first home stand runs
through next Monday before the
uD JOHNSON Suns hit the road next weekend.
The Suns handed their parent
team, the Florida Marlins, a 4-3
) n loss on Friday and will hope to
carry that momentum into the
opening day on Thursday.
Crews, As usual, the Suns have all
Kelvey. kinds of great giveaways and one
vis are of the best is on opening day. The
first 3000 fans will receive an
the Al- all-metal replica championship
whose ring courtesy of Underwood's
)oked," Jewelry.
The Masters begins this week
and golfs crown jewel is one of
the few golf tournaments I watch.
Strangely enough, I like profes-
sional golf in person, and when
K E I can convince myself to turn on
the telecast I enjoy watching it on
H television.
The Masters has a real allure
for me, though I don't know why.
fB." Perhaps it is that the Augusta
National course is so beautiful,
m1C 5 particularly in the spring.
mThis year, as most are aware,
it has another draw. It is the first
tournament with Tiger Woods in
the lineup since his self-imposed
exile following all the revelations
about his private life.
Prior to the start of the tour-
nament, Woods is expected to
have another news conference.
Hopefully it won't be as cryptic
and self-serving as his last public
statement at Ponte Vedra.
According to his caddie,
Woods has been practicing in
private in preparation for the
.KS Masters. As good a golfer as he
is it would be almost unthink-
I M able for him to be competitive
considering the lay off and the
amount of pressure that will be
on him as the paparazzi dog his
EIT every move.
It will make for good theatre.

desire to help enrich the future of
young women in Baker County.
SThe pageant will be the pre-
liminary competition to qualify-
olor ing for the Miss Florida Forestry
State Scholarship Pageant. It will
RT include the usual divisions from
t. Baby Miss, ages up to 3 years,
through Miss, ages 17-24 years,
as well a Ms. division for ladies
age 25 and older.
The ladies will offer two free
classes in interview skills, mod-
eling and choosing clothing and
cosmetics for all registered en-
trants. Details will be covered in
an information night for all in-
terested in competing and their
parents on April 13 at 7:00 pm at
MES the Woman's Club.
What makes this pageant dif-
ONS ferent will be its emphasis on
public speaking ability and com-
iGES munity service, not simply look-
ELS ing pretty in an evening gown.
cELS 'The Miss Florida Forestry
tial & Pageant has scholarship money
racial already well established. One
cened of the committee goals is to get
Insured scholarship money established
3515 at the preliminary level, although


that may take several years to
happen.
This preliminary level pag-
eant already exists in a handful
of counties in Florida. Baker
County will be the latest addition.
To compete in the preliminary,
entrants must be residents of, at-
tend school in or work in Baker
County.
"Baker County needs more
in the way of opportunities to
encourage its young women to
strive for excellence," said Ms.
Ferreira, "especially to help them
recognize there can be more for
them beyond graduation from
high school."
According to Ms. Ferreira and
Ms. Beckum, the pageant will
be a springboard to help them
develop personal skills that will
enhance every aspect of their life,
from maintaining a professional
appearance, to effective com-
munication and mastering job
interviews.
"Many pageants don't require
much more than having a pretty
face," said Ms. Ferreira. '"The girls
aren't required to do anything
beyond winning the pageant to
have the privilege of wearing
their crown. This pageant will be
different. The winner will be re-
quired to represent her county in
a very visible way."
The winner will need to be a
dedicated proponent of the forest
management industry. Develop-
ing a working knowledge of the
industry, both for Baker County
and the state of Florida will be


involved with beauty pageants
as a certified pageant judge. Ms.
Beckum has a background in em-
ployment counseling and place-
ment.
Applications for the pageant
will be available at the informa-
tion meeting on April 13. Appli-
cations may also be downloaded

How to save on


your water bill


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Baker County horticulture
agent Alicia Lamborn reviewed
current water conservation in-
formation with members of the
Baker County Rotary Club at its
meeting March 24.
Ms. Lamborn's presentation
was based on current recom-
mendations by The University
of Florida Institute for Food and
Agricultural Science.
Although Florida is sur-
rounded on three sides by wa-
ter and dotted with lakes and
streams, there is still a need to
conserve this seemingly plentiful
resource.
Not all of Florida's water is
fresh or readily available for
drinking or other purposes. The
state's fickle weather fluctu-
ates between drought and flood,
which can create frequent "feast
or famine" conditions.
"Water conservation is the
cornerstone of Florida's water
sustainability," says Kirby Green,
executive director of the St. Johns
Water Management District
which includes Baker County.
"Conservation is a critical strat-
egy in meeting the current and
future water supply needs of our
state." The SJWMD recently ap-
proved a proclamation designat-
ing April as Water Conservation
Month.

Lawn and landscape
Over half of water consump-
tion for the average home is in
maintaining the lawn, garden
and landscaping. Following wa-
tering schedules is imperative, so
know which days you can water
for your area.
Mandatory lawn watering
restrictions, which resumed on
March 14, specify the time of
year and the corresponding days
when you may water. These days
depend on whether you have
an odd or even numbered ad-
dress and the time of year such
as daylight saving time or stan-
dard time. For a detailed guide
go to www.sjrwm.com. When
the graphic scrolls to Know Your
Days, click on it.
An odd numbered address is
one that ends in 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9.
An even numbered address
is one that ends in o, 2, 4, 6 or 8.
Water only when needed and
not between to a.m. and 4 p.m.
Water for no more than one
hour per zone.
Restrictions apply to private
wells and pumps, ground or sur-
face water and water from public
and private utilities.

Leaks
A main water conservation
precaution inside the home is a
thorough and routine check for
leaks.
Taking care of leaks will go a
long way in helping conserve wa-
ter as well as lowering your water
bill each month.
Read your water meter. Wait
one hour (no water should be
used at this time). Remember to
wait for the hot water heater and
ice maker to refill and for the re-
generation of water softeners be-
fore recording the first reading.
If your home is free of leaks, the
second reading should exactly
match the first. If not, you may
have a leak.
Tip: If you have a well, listen
for the pump to kick on and off
while water is not in use. If this
happens, there is a leak some-
where.


Water saving tips: Home
Install water efficient clothes
washing machines, dish washers
and low flow toilets. A toilet tank
displacement device can cut wa-
ter use by 40 percent.
Install low flow shower
heads. Shower water use can be
reduced 50 percent and save up
to 20,000 gallons of water each
year.
Install facet aerators.
Install a hot water re-circula-
tion pump.
Insulate your water pipes.
Cut off water while brushing
your teeth. To conserve water
during a shower: wet body, turn
off water, lather up, then rinse
off.

Water saving tips: Yard
Landscape with drought tol-
erant native plants.
Use mulch.
Water only from 4-7 am.
Follow water restrictions for
your district.
Place sprinklers properly.
Calibrate irrigation system
and install rain shut-off device
Use micro-irrigation hoses.
Pay attention to rainfall.
