Rookie

deputy

arrested

for abuse
A rookie county deputy is
on unpaid administrative leave
following his arrest during the
early morning hours of April
18 for domestic violence on his
wife.
Robert
L. Simp-
kins, 28, a
member of
the force
since Au-
gust, 2009,
is accused
of twice
dragging
his wife
Kristin, no
age listed,
while Robert Simpkins
holding
her in a headlock following an
argument at their residence on
East McIver St. in Macelenny.
Witnesses told Deputy Larry
Clark theyfirst heard Mrs. Simp-
kins yelling as she approached
the property of neighbor Gina
Dyess, and that she along with
Karen Tomlin, Jonathan Dyess
and Allen Yonn struggled with
Deputy Simpkins attempting to
free the woman.
The suspended officer at-
tempted to fight them off as he
dragged his wife toward their
residence, where at least one of
their children was awake and
crying in a bathroom around
2:30 when the incident oc-
curred.
Deputy Clark noted in his
report that, "It was apparent
that all parties involved had
been drinking..." Before he
was arrested, Mr. Simpkins
was also interviewed by Sgt.
Brad Dougherty, as were the
witnesses who the officers said
gave consistent statements.
During the second interview,
however, Mrs. Simpkins agreed
with the accused that he did not
strike or choke her in a head-
lock. Rather, she said he placed
his arm around her attempting
to escort her home.
Ms. Tomlin disputed that,
insisting that the husband's
grip on his wife was sufficient
that he could push them away
while still maintaining "a good
hold" on his distraught wife.
The witness said at one point
she attempted to calm Mr.
Simpkins by reminding him he
is a police officer, to which he
replied, "F--- you, f--- my ca-
reer!"
Maj. Gerald Gonzalez, op-
erations chief for the sheriffs
department, termed the arrest

Jerry McKenzie stood in front of his burn-

13 watching firefighters spray water at the
structure, which had already sustained heavy
damage.
He spotted a corner of the 16oo00-square-
foot house at 9886 CR 139 that appeared
relatively intact and not totally charred. His
work boots were placed there.
"I'm hoping to at least get those out," he


zie wasn't sure where he'd be sleeping that
night.
"I raised my kids in this house," he said.
The CSX railroad worker described how he
smelled smoke while watching TV in a bed-
room and found flames rising from the floor
of the laundry room about 4 feet high.
"I tried to get water out of the sink, but I
couldn't find anything big enough to even at-
tempt it," said Mr. McKenzie.


The fire destroyed the home and its con-
tents, including three televisions, furniture, a
washer and dryer and other belongings.
"Everything's gone," Mr. McKenzie's wife
Elaine said early this week. "The only thing
they got out of there with was the clothes on
their back."

A route to curb commuter costs


By use of

van pools
JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
Commuters spending more
than $21 a week driving to and
from work could save big by
participating in the Florida Ru-
ral Vanpool Program.
The Florida Department of
Transportation [FDOT] is us-
ing financial support from the
American Recovery and Re-
investment Act of 2009, also
known as the stimulus package,
to offset 60 percent of the cost
for vanpoolss" in 32 rural Flor-
ida counties, including Baker,
during the next 21 months.
FDOT partnered with VSPI,
Inc. of Troy, Michigan to launch
a vanpool program designed to
reduce commuting costs, high-
way traffic and vehicle emis-
sions.


VANPOOL RIDER'S MONTHLY FEE ESTIMATES
-Number of Based on 1,500 miles per
Number of month
Riders Fee per Rider month
Riders
6-7 $84-$72
8-9 $73-$65
10-15 $66-$44


According to estimates from
Jim Cipollone, VSPI's Florida
manager, commuters going
from Macclenny to Jackson-
ville could pay as little as $44
a month to participate in a
vanpool, provided their route
is roughly 68 miles round-trip
and they join 14 other riders to
share 40 percent of the total op-
erating costs.
Even with five riders, the
estimated cost per passenger
- including fuel, maintenance
and a 2010 model year van
- would be $84 a month.
A vanpool's monthly operat-
ing costs will be estimated based
on the size of the van furnished

by VSPI and the length of the
route, which determines the
monthly fuel and maintenance
costs.
Sixty percent of the total op-
erating cost is paid by the state
and the remaining 40 percent is
shared equally among vanpool
users, making the service less
expensive for larger groups.
VSPI offers minivans that
seat seven or center aisle con-
version vans seating nine to
15 passengers. Mr. Cipollone
based his monthly cost esti-
mates on 1500 miles of travel
and no parking or toll expenses.
The estimate showed vanpools
with six riders could pay $84 a


month, with 10 riders $66, and
only $44 with at maximum ca-
pacity of 15 riders.
The program also requires
a high level of coordination
among riders on routes and
stops. Each vanpool is assigned
a driver, approved by VSPI,
responsible for collecting and
remitting monthly rider fees
to VSPI, having maintenance
performed on the vehicle and
keeping it full to hold down
rider fees.
Other than the van, VSPI is
responsible for auto liability
insurance for approved driv-
ers and a bumper-to-bumper
schedule of preventive mainte-
nance and repairs.
The service will be offered on
a month-to-month basis in the
32-county area and requires no
long-term commitments.
Riders pay at the beginning
of the month to secure a seat
in the vanpool for the coming
month. There are no refunds.
Pick-ups can be made at a
staging area or riders homes.

A Macclenny man acquitted
of armed robbery late last year
and released with time served

stores,
has been
charged
with kill-
ing a navy

glary at his
home April 16.
Police have charged DeAn-
gelo Thomas, 30, of Macclenny
with murdering chief petty of-
ficer David Gilbert, carrying a
concealed firearm by a convict-
ed felon and burglary. He has
a lengthy criminal record that
includes burglaries, thefts and
drugs sales dating back to when
he was a juvenile.
He served five years at the
Mayo Correctional Institution
for robbing the Amoco station
in downtown Macclenny in
2002, with his release coming
in May 200oo8.
About one year later he was
charged with robberies at the
Kangaroo store on E. Mac-
lenny Ave. and the Quick-N-
Handy on N. SR 121 in which
more than $450 in cash were
taken along with cigarettes.
Investigators used the dat-
ing code on cigarettes recovered
from his Joan Street residence
to link the merchandise to the
Kangaroo station robbery in
late May 2009. Mr. Thomas
was also implicated by his close
resemblance in stature and
voice inflection to the gunman
in security videos from both
robberies, though the suspect's
face was covered in each.
Ajury acquitted Mr. Thomas
last November in the Kangaroo
store robbery, despite testi-
mony and evidence from ciga-
rette distributors that the pack
of Newports found at his home
came from the store.
The following month he was
sentenced to 183 days time al-
ready served in return for a no
contest plea to attempted armed
robbery of the Quick-N-Handy.
The state dropped companion
charges of aggravated battery
with a deadly weapon and petty
theft.
Jacksonville police found
Mr. Gilbert, 40, dead in the
doorway of his Savannah Oaks
apartment on Roosevelt Blvd.

The first step in starting a van-
pool, whether for a single work
destination or among local resi-
dents working in the same gen-
eral area, is to determine a basic
route.
The distance of the route can
then be used to estimate the
monthly expenses depending
on which size van is chosen. And
armed with a cost estimate, us-
ers can advertise a vanpool and
recruit fellow riders.
Call 1-8oo-826-RIDE (7433)
for assistance with this process.
Groups then identify a volun-
teer driver, and alternates to fill


in during vacations or other pe-
riods when the driver may not be
working. The drivers are qualified
through VPSI, which required a
completed application and about
48 hours.
Membership in the program
also entitles users access to an
emergency ride home service
through the North Florida Trans-
portation Planning Organization.

rural vanpool program, call 1-

THE BACK

PORCH
Kelley Lannigan
Last Saturday afternoon I rode
with a friend out to the St. Mary's
River. In back of the truck was his
red kayak, paddle and two life pre-
servers.
I'd been talking for some time
about learning a few more things
before embarking on a kayak jour-
ney by myself and he had offered
to help.
That was early last fall. The
months slipped by and winter ap-
proached. Still, we talked about
doing something with the kayak.
It would have to wait until spring.
Finally, spring sprang and the
subject came up again last Satur-
day while I was at the grand re-
opening of Bennett's Feed, Farm
and Pet Center which, by the
way, was a blast.
There was my friend standing
in line for some barbecue. We sat
and ate together, chatting about
this and that. When we finished,
he looked at me and said "We'll,
do you have anything planned for
the rest of the afternoon?"
I told him no.
"You want to give this kayak
thing a try?"
An hour later we arrived at
the river. The place was packed.
There were trucks and people ev-
erywhere. Kids ran and squealed,
dove and splashed. Bikinis were
out in force. The smell of ham-
burgers and the strains of country
music from a radio floated on the
air.
Our kayak was conspicuous
as we carrying it down the boat
ramp, a lone, bright scarlet object
against the tannic blackness of the
river water.
I got strapped into my life vest,
climbed into the kayak and waited
a few minutes until he got the foot
rests adjusted to fit the reach of
my legs.


"O.K., take her out and have
a go. Let me see how you handle
her," he said.
I took off and soon the beach
fell far behind. I haven't had a
paddle in my hands for months
and maneuvering a kayak paddle
is not the same as a canoe paddle,
but it comes back quickly, like rid-
ing a bike.
I passed two men in a canoe go-
ing in the opposite direction. One
couldn't resist teasing me.
"We just passed an 8-foot ga-
tor!" he called merrily.
'Then I guess I'll stay in this
boat!" I shouted back.
I could see my friend, about the
size of an ant, watching patiently
on shore. I paddled back.
"Now," he said. "You're going to
learn how to get back in the kayak
if you fall out in water over your
head.
I practiced in three feet of wa-
ter, following his instructions, but
it wasn't easy. In fact, it was amaz-
ingly hard. I'd been doing some
isometric arm exercises at work
for several months and that's the
only reason I was able to pull it
off.
This technique involves grap-
pling with the back end of kayak,
getting a leg over so you can strad-
dle it and hauling your body, inch
by laborious inch, forward until
you can drop your backside into
the seat. The object, of course, is to
do it without capsizing.
I did it in the shallows. Then
I paddled out over my head, but
still close to shore and did it there.
Then I took the kayak back out on
the river some distance away and
repeated the maneuver until I was
confident I wouldn't forget it.
I can just hear the question I
know some readers will ask me
after they read this column. It will
be similar to the one I got asked
dozens of times after I went sky-
diving.
"Why, (I can just hear it now)
would you want to jump out of a
perfectly good kayak?"

Keep your taxes in perspective


On Point

In Print
Joel Addington

The annual IRS true-up is
over. The tea partisans had their
protests, including here at the
Macclenny post office April 15.
And before you know it, the coun-
ty, Macclenny, Glen St. Mary and
school district will begin work
on their 2010-11 budgets and tax
rates.
Looking ahead at the local lev-
el, residents should keep in mind


just how good they have it.
Last year's property tax rates
for the county, schools, hospital
and water management district
totaled $16.22 per $1ooo of tax-
able value. Macclenny residents,
with the added layer of taxation
for centralized water and sewer
service, paid a rate of $19.71.
In 199o, those rates stood at
$23.02 and $26.02, respectively.
And they've been falling ever
since. Meanwhile, the price of
everything from water to gas to
construction materials has been
rising. Comparatively, North
Florida has some of the lowest
property taxes in the state. And
Florida has some of the lowest


taxes in the country.
Even at a national level, we
as a state received back almost
every dime we sent to Washing-
ton, or 97 cents on the dollar,
according to 2005 figures from
the nonpartisan Tax Foundation.
Meanwhile, states like California
and New York only saw about
two thirds of its federal tax bur-
den return there. Imagine living
in New Jersey, where 40 cents of
every federal tax dollar ended up
in some other state.
Yet, states like New Mexico
and Alaska actually profited from
the federal tax system. In 2005,
the foundation reported those
states got back twice as much as


their citizens paid in.
The tax system at all levels is
unfair. Those who pay don't nec-
essarily benefit, and those that
do, don't always pay.
But, by and large, the folks
with the highest tax burdens -
property owners, business own-
ers, corporations all depend
more on government services
than Joe Sixpack, who didn't sue
anybody this year, move goods
across state lines, or need police
and fire protection for his prop-
erty.
Nobody likes paying taxes, and
I certainly want my middle class
tax cut again next year. I'm just
saying keep it in perspective.


More stories for the 'tabloid' edition


About a month
has passed since M Y S
my first issue of
the supermarket THE
tabloid edition THE lV
of The Baker ROBERT
County Press and
oddly enough my
publisher has not been beating
down my door for a second is-
sue.
I don't understand it. Maybe
he has just been so busy with all
the other news in Baker County
that it has just slipped his mind.
He meant to pat me on the back
and say "Great job, keep it com-
ing," but he just had too much to
do.
So, I'm just going to forge
ahead. I have been combing the
bushes for breaking news and
stories that stand out and have
come up with a few that I'm actu-
ally very surprised have not made
the front page. What are they
thinking? How can you ignore
a turnip shaped like President
Ronald Reagan?
Clovis and Maynard Whita-
ker of Baxter turned a few heads
at the Baker County Farmers'
Market this month when they
unveiled a gigantic turnip bear-
ing a striking resemblance to the
4oth president of these United
States.
The 25-pound behemoth
made mouths drop because of
its uncanny resemblance to "the
great communicator."
"Reagan was always my fa-
vorite president," said Maynard,
"so you can imagine how tickled I
was when I found him smiling up
at me from my garden."
His wife Clovis agreed. "Every
time that I looked at that turnip
I remember President Reagan
calling the Soviet Union the 'evil
empire' and it just runs chills
down my spine. I almost hated to
sell it."
"'Course," said Maynard, "it
did go to a couple of them Tea
Party people. They're big fans of
Reagan so I doubt they'll cook
him up with a mess of greens.

JERARD Killer Kanga-
roo strikes again
That local
legend The Killer Kangaroo has
reared its marsupial head again
on the road around Cuyler. Ella
Mae Jones of Taylor was driving
home late at night last Tuesday
when something large and hairy
ran out in front of her car.
"At first I just thought it was
high school students playing a
joke," said Ms. Jones, "but then it
stopped and reared up on its hind
legs or something and looked at
me with its yellow eyes. It scared
the wits out of me, I can tell you
that."
Ms. Jones was about to turn
the car around when it growled at
her and hopped off into a stand
of trees.


That might have been that ex-
cept later the next day, Mrs. An-
nie Crews reported that her pit
bull Joker was missing from the
back yard. "We keep him chained
up in the back yard and, poof, he
was gone. He couldn't have broke
that chain neither. I think it was
bit through."
Sheriffs deputies investigated

Joker.
The fact that kangaroos are
marsupials and not meat eat-
ers did not hold water with Mrs.
Crews.
"He wouldn't be called the
Killer kangaroo if he was eatin'
daisies. I won't sleep a wink
till he's caught, I'll tell you that
much."
US Census falls flat in Baker
County
The Department of Commerce
is a little concerned about Baker
County since only 19 people here
have actually filled out the gov-


ernment document.
Martin 0. Myers Jr., the De-
partment of Commerce function-
ary in charge of collecting census
data from a five-county area in-
cluding Baker, is baffled by the
lack of response.
"Actually, we can't really ex-
plain it," said Myers. "We've gone
house to house and people either
have never heard of the census
or want no part of it. The general
consensus seems to be that they
know where they live and don't
see why it's any business of the
US government."
Myers says his workers have
tried to explain that filling out
the census is vital to determining
school funding and how many
federal dollars will come into
Baker County.
"Federal dollars?" said one
resident who wished to remain
anonymous. "Is that like that
bailout thing?"

The Baker County Press has a fan page

site you always hear about) for our
online readers to connect with us. It's
informal but effective in helping usfind
out what theythink. We asked ourfans
on Facebook April 15,"What are your
thoughts on why Gov. Crist vetoed
senate bill 6? What kind of bill do we
need to replace it with, oristhe system
fine the way it is?" Here's a look at the
responses:
Tammy Crawford McFarland:
"What iswrongwith the system as it is
... other than teachers need a pay raise? I
would hate to know that if I were a teacher
my pay would depend on the grades of
kids who don't care, could care less and
other things. Would you as a doctor want
to get paid based on the fact that you lost


a patient? This bill was crazy to begin with
!!! GO TEACHERS !!!!
Derek LeRoy Thrasher:
"Teachers should be paid based on
performance. They have fought this for
years. What system is in place to make
sure you can actually teach? Other than
your students grades? Teachers are over-
paid and underworked!!
Angela Suppa Callahan:
"FYI I'm a teacher ... worked at
school from 7:55 to 4:00 (I am only paid
until 3:25), came home took care of my
family and am now (at 8:07pm) about to
start grading a stack of papers might
get done around 10ish"
Maurice Postal:
"Crist's veto of SB 6 is basically his an-
nouncement that he's going to run for the
Senate asan Independent. It's a big middle


finger to the Republican establishment in
Florida, especially Jeb"
Melissa Haines:
"I do not think that our teacher's pay
should be determined by the grades that
students get. Some kids just are not good
students and that isjust the way it is. They
do not want to apply themselves and
sometimes that parents don't care if they
do the work or not. God bless our teachers
they have a lot on their shoulders. They
can only teach the students they can't
make learn or apply what they teach":'

BAKER COUNTY COMMISSION


Board votes to buy additional Shoals land


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
The Baker County Commis-
sion voted unanimously April 19
to expand the roughly 16oo-acre
St. Mary's Shoals Park north
of Glen St. Mary by 1044 acres,
despite fears from tax-weary
citizens about future costs of
maintaining additional public
recreation space.
"I'm here as a taxpayer," said
Copper Creek resident Danny
Norton. "I'm asking that you not
make a decision that will cost the
taxpayers."
Glen St. Mary resident Mike
Yarborough has also opposed the
expansion in recent weeks, but
urged county officials to evaluate
wetlands on the additional park
land and assess its potential for
timber harvesting to arrive at a
"fair market price" for the acqui-
sition.
"This information would be
critical in negotiating with the
landowner," he said.
Money allocated in 2008 by
the Florida legislature to the
Florida Forever land conserva-
tion program will be used to fund
the purchase. However, a na-
tional land conservation group,
the Trust for Public Land, which
has a branch office in Tallahas-
see, will be negotiating the sale,
explained Bob Guido, a senior
project manager with the organi-
zation.
"They [the landowners] will
not be paid more than the prop-
erty is worth," he said.
Two independent appraisals
are required on the land, which
includes various parcels on the


park's western and southern
boundaries owned by the Davis
family's Long Branch Farms LLC
and Amy E. Stavely, respectively.
The Trust for Public Land can-
not pay more for the land than its
appraised value.
"It's scrutinized to no end,"
said Mr. Guido.
Should the negotiations fail,
the expansion won't happen. But
if they're successful, the state
would buy the land and transfer
ownership to the county through
a contract outlining the county's
responsibilities, like maintaining
the land for public use.
While there are opportuni-
ties for generating revenue at the
park for its upkeep like con-
cession stands at athletic fields,
entry fees or harvesting timber
- Mr. Guido said a lack of fund-
ing wouldn't necessarily trigger a
provision in the contract allow-
ing ownership to revert back to
the state.
"If something drastic hap-
pens," he said. "You can close a
portion of the park, and begin
asking for private donations to
keep it open, just like they do
with the National Parks ... The
state is very understanding with
extensions to meet [contractual]
requirements."
When asked if the state has
ever taken back park lands, Mr.
Guido said, to his knowledge, it
hasn't ever happened.
Concerns about spending tax
dollars on the park expansion
didn't go unnoticed by the board.
Commission chairman Alex Rob-
inson thanked residents for their
input and participation during
the meeting and a preceding


workshop on the matter April 6.
"It's taxpayer dollars that gen-
erate these grants," said Com-
missioner Michael Crews. "But
we have an opportunity here to
bring some of those tax dollars
back to Baker County."
In other business this week:
The commission accepted
another state grant $395,781
for paving a section of Cow Pen
Road north of US 9o.
The county also has about
$216,000 it received from CSX
for closing a crossing that could
be used for additional funding.
County Manager Joe Cone
said the county intends to com-
bine the money to pave as much
of Cow Pen Road as possible
while also connecting the paved
portion of Fred Harvey Road
with the newly-paved section of
Cow Pen.
Cow Pen and Fred Harvey
would also serve as an alternate
north-south route in the western
county that avoids the occasion-
ally-blocked railroad crossing at
CR 229.
Road department director
Robert Fletcher said the full ex-
tent of the project will be known
after engineering and permitting
has been completed.
Commissioners agreed to
spend about $45,700 from its
yearly contingency budget on
the local match for a $457,000


federal grant from FEMA to
overhaul radio communications
equipment used by emergency
medical services [EMS] and fire
department personnel.
EMS Director David Richard-
son said the grant hasn't been
awarded just yet, but the agency
requested a commitment from
the county.
"It sounds very, very likely," he
said. "They wouldn't have asked
for this if we weren't going to get
it, but they won't say yes or no."
The new radios would be
required by 2013 anyway, Mr.
Richardson added, because the
Federal Communications Com-
mission is phasing out "wide
band" frequency systems for
"narrow band" systems at that
time.
The new equipment also helps
the county comply with another
conversion taking place, from
analog radios to those that have
both analog and digital modes,
offering a higher degree of in-
teroperability between agencies
and more privacy through en-
cryption.
The radios also have a better
range, longer battery life and
louder, clearer audio.
The board waived permit
fees on up to six mobile home
units for Raiford Road Church's
still-developing housing ministry
on S. SR 121.

The church purchased an ad-
jacent 5-acre mobile home park
in 2008 with six units, which had
fallen into disrepair and were
later torn down.
In a memo to the commission,
building department director
Bob Hathcox said that replace-
ment units aren't subject to per-
mit fees anyway.
Raiford Road's senior pastor
John Raulerson said the ministry
now includes a triple-wide trailer
donated by an Alachua County
doctor and another nearby unit
on one-half acre. They're used


to offer free housing for one to
three months, to people in need,
he said.
Commissioners also con-
curred with the Land Planning
Agency's recommendation last
month to rezone even more of the
southeast corner of the CR 125 in-
tersection with Odis Yarborough
Road for commercial use.
The property owner's attorney,
Hugh Fish, said March 11 his cli-
ent, Glen Plantation LTD, hasn't
yet settled on a business plan, but
that to acres already zoned com-
mercial is no longer big enough.
Glen Plantation requested re-
zoning an additional o10.69 acres
immediately southeast from agri-
culture to commercial, enlarging
the commercial block to more
than 20 acres.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


COURT


Pacts with inmates for sex, drugs


A former Baker Correctional work release
supervisor pleaded no contest in circuit court
on April 19 to collaborating with inmates to
furnish them with contraband food, liquor and
drugs and, in the case of one inmate, allowing
him to leave the crew for brief periods to have
sex with girlfriends from Jacksonville.
Ronald Ryan Wilson, 31, of Lake City was
ordered onto house arrest for a year, followed
by three years on probation. He must perform
100 hours of community service and surren-
der his state certification as a corrections of-
ficer.
Judge Phyllis Rosier withheld adjudication
of guilt, but also ordered a $1000 fine and
that Mr. Wilson pen a letter of apology to BCI
warden Melody Flores.
The defendant had been an officer for 10
years before the offenses took place in the
summer of 2008. Mr. Wilson was a supervi-
sor of a work release crew in Baker County at
the time.
He pleaded to twin counts of receiving un-
lawful compensation, permitting an inmate to
escape and accepting unauthorized compen-
sation. The state dropped a charge of felony
possession of marijuana.
According to a lengthy DOC investigation
report, Mr. Wilson on July 15 and August 12
allowed inmate Charles Hall to leave Public


Works Squad 6 for brief periods to have sex
at area motels.
The liaisons were arranged beforehand and
the girlfriends picked up Mr. Hall in private
cars when the crew was parked near Mount
Herman Cemetery off Woodlawn Rd. near
Macclenny.
In return, the supervisor required the ladies
to bring "free world" food like fried chicken
and hamburgers to the rest of the crew.
On August 15, 2008, a former BCI inmate
brought food and liquor to the crew and later
that day when Mr. Wilson was tipped off
about a surprise inspection of their van when
they returned to the Macclenny work center,
they ditched a bag of contraband in a palmetto
bush off Steel Bridge Rd.
When a prison team searched the van it
was clean, but two of the inmates had become
intoxicated on the cognac.
The supervisor also allowed inmates to
have marijuana, use of cell phones and char-
gers in the van. The BCI investigators learned
from other inmates that Mr. Wilson, who had
financial woes due to divorce, accepted money
to allow both cocaine and pot to be smuggled
into the facility, located between Sanderson
and Olustee.
Judge Rosier admonished the defendant
and said he betrayed a system that relies on


the honesty and integrity of its employees,
and facilitated illegal activities of prisoners
who were being punished for crimes against
society.
In other circuit court cases this week:
Gary Davis was placed on house arrest six
months and will serve three years on proba-
tion after pleading to felony criminal mischief,
burglary and grand theft.
Phillip Lloyd pleaded no contest to fraud
and will be in county jail seven months less
126 days already served, followed by two years
on probation.
He must also pay $6649 restitution to the
victim.
Steven Smith entered a similar plea to sale
and possession of narcotics and driving on a
suspended license and got a year in county ail
less time served.
A similar sentence was given to Kathy
Hardin after she admitted to violating proba-
tion on earlier cases of grand theft and fraud.
Judge Rosier revoked the probation.
An arrest warrant with no bond will be
issued for Shannon Gaskins, who failed to ap-
pear in court on several charges of sale and
possession of prescription drugs and mari-
juana.


Thieves target grills
Barbecue grills were reported stolen at two residences the past week,
one of them an unoccupied house near Ocean Pond.
A lawn maintenance worker noticed that a gas grill valued at $500
was taken from the porch of a cabin near Ocean Pond belonging to Mal-
colm Ramsey of Cocoa Beach.
He told police he had last been there in October of last year.
Ralph Hurlbert of Glen St. Mary reported on April 18 that two grills
with a combined value of $379 were taken from his property on US 90.
He last saw them three days earlier.
In other reports:
Purses and contents belonging to Elizabeth Davis, Jessica Davis
and Anita Taylor were taken from their residence on 9th St. in Mac-
clenny during a social gathering the evening of April 11.
Bernice Cabral told police someone vandalized a water softener
and piping at her residence off SR 121 south during the early morning
hours of April 14.

Police are looking into a likely
connection between two com-
mercial burglaries that occurred
overnight April 13 in downtown
Sanderson.
A front door was pried open
to gain entry to the Sanderson
Cheap Butts convenience store
at CR 229 and US 90 sometime
between closing time the previ-
ous night and 6:15 am when an
employee arrived to open up.
Owner Ali Amir told Deputy
Matt Sigers that $1971 in inven-
tory and cash from a drawer was
taken. The stolen loot included
24 cartons of cigarettes valued
at $1174, $429 cash, cigars and
smokeless tobacco.
About the same time that
morning, owner William Wil-
liams arrived to find someone
had smashed a front window at
his grocery store and made off
with an unspecified amount of
cigarettes and cigars.
Deputy Brad Dougherty said
change was in a cash register but
it was not taken.
In other burglaries of a com-
mercial nature, four persons
were arrested April 17 for break-
ing into a concession stand at the
Knabb Sports Complex and steal-
ing an undetermined amount of
candy, soft drinks and other food
items.
Deputy Ben Anderson was in-
vestigating the breaking through
a customer window when he
spotted several males walking on
nearby Blair St. He noted that one
of the subjects, later identified
as Antonio Shapiro, 18, of Mac-


clenny left the roadway briefly
with a plastic bag and returned
without it.
The bag was later located and
contained several items taken
from the concession stand. Other
merchandise was recovered both
in and outside the home of a 17-
year-old suspect who lives on
Blair.
Also charged were Michael
Blodgett, 23, of Macclenny and
another 17-year-old male. They
have the same address on Mil-
tondale Rd.
Mr. Shapiro told Deputy An-
derson he is on probation for
burglary. All were charged with
burglary and petty theft.
Jason Burnette, 20, and a
17-year-old male were arrested
on April 15 for grand theft and
criminal mischief for stealing two
air conditioners from an unoccu-
pied residence off Chestnut Rd.
near Macclenny.
The home is being foreclosed
upon by Country Federal Credit
Union, which notified police that
morning of the thefts. Deputy
Koty Crews questioned the sus-
pects who live nearby when he
spotted them working on what
appeared to be one of the units.
It had been dismantled; the
other was intact on a trailer.
Other neighbors told the of-
ficer Mr. Burnette said he was
maintaining the property for the
credit union, and that they often
saw him with appliances and
other items from the residence
and other unoccupied ones in the
area.

Arrest for stabbing

husband with a fork


A Glen St. Mary woman was
jailed early on April 18 for stab-
bing her husband in the back
with a fork during an argument
over whether she should leave a
residence in an intoxicated state.
Deputy Daniel Nichols said
he was called to the address off
Timber Trace P1. about midnight
following a disturbance involving
Monica Mills and her husband
Eric, both 30 years old.
A witness, age 12, told the of-
ficer Ms. Mills stabbed her hus-
band in the shoulder and then
several times in the back as he at-
tempted to walk away during the
argument. The two then fell to
the floor after Mr. Mills grabbed
her. The wife also said she was
choked.
Mr. Mills refused to sign a
statement implicating his wife,
and she was then arrested for
aggravated domestic battery, a
second-degree felony.
DCF was called in this case
also because the couple's two
children, ages 6 and 8, were at
the residence. The Mills both
have Lakeland, FL addresses but
had been staying with another
couple there. They told Deputy
Nichols they did not witness the
physical confrontation.
The officer noted both parties
were "extremely intoxicated."
Tabitha Cohen, 18, of Sand-
erson was arrested for stabbing
her husband Devan, 20, in the
hand with a knife during an argu-


ment the evening of April 17.
The couple quarreled about
8:30 when Ms. Cohen returned to
collect clothing. It soon escalated
into a physical fight during which
Mr. Cohen allegedly threw her to
the ground and they wrestled.
When the husband attempted
to walk away, Ms. Cohen alleged-
ly grabbed scissors and followed
him outside where she stabbed
him. The scissors were taken
away by acquaintances, but Ms.
Cohen then retrieved a kitchen
knife and attempted to stab her
husband.
She was charged with aggra-
vated battery and aggravated as-
sault; Mr. Cohen with domestic
battery.
Two sheriffs investigators
arrested Rodrick Roberts, 23, of
Macclenny after they saw him
pull the hair of girlfriend Tiara
Roberson, 24, also of Macclenny,
the afternoon of April 16.
Investigators Michael Hauge
and Erik Deloach said they were
near the intersection of South
Boulevard and 9th St. when
they saw the suspect follow Ms.
Robertson out the door of his
residence. He confronted her
and pulled her back into the yard
by her hair, said Investigator De-
loach.
Mr. Roberts was arrested for
domestic battery because of the
couple's relationship. Mr. Rob-
erts described the victim as "my
baby momma."

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


No license, brings pot to jail

Macclenny driver with 4 prior suspensions


A Macclenny man arrested
driving without a license sus-
pended as an habitual offender
early on April 14 now faces other
charges after a small amount of
marijuana was found on him
while he was being booked.
Deputy Rodney Driggers
stopped a 1999 Buick driven by
Genaro Harris, 24, near South
4th and Michigan just after mid-
night, and learned of four prior
license suspensions and the ha-
bitual status.
Mr. Genaro told the officer he
was clean of contraband before
he was taken to jail. However,
police found a small baggie of
marijuana in his shoe. That led to
additional counts of misdemean-
or possession and attempted
smuggling of pot into the jail, a
third-degree felony.
In other cases:


Preston Baker, 19, of Sand-
erson was charged with DUI the
morning of April 14 after he was
reported to police for reckless
driving on US 90o west of Sand-
erson.
Deputy Larry Clark said he
stopped a 1998 Saturn driven
by Mr. Baker about 2:35 and the
driver failed several field sobriety
tests. He also did not chart any
alcohol content on a breathalyzer
at county jail, but admitted to
the deputy that he smoked mari-
juana.
Mr. Clark also told the officer
that friends may have slipped
some cocaine into his marijuana.
Aaron Salts, 25, of Macclenny
was arrested for reckless driving
in a parking lot off South 6th just
after 2:00 am on April 18.
Deputy Shawn Bishara said
he was on patrol when he saw the


suspect spinning his 1999 Chev-
rolet pickup in circular "donuts"
with sufficient force to deflate a
rear tire. He also said several pe-
destrians standing nearby had to
run to avoid being struck.
The same deputy arrested
Melvin Norman, 42, of Glen St.
Mary about 3:00 am on April
13 for driving on a license sus-
pended nine times. Mr. Norman
had also been adjudicated as an
habitual offender.
He stopped the suspect on
Turner Cemetery Rd. after re-
ceiving a call of gunshots in the
area. Mr. Norman is not believed
to be involved in the firearms
complaint.
Deputy Robert Simpkins
stopped a Chevrolet SUV driven
by Justin Thomas, 24, of Max-
ville after receiving a report the
evening of April 15 of a speeding


motorist.
A computer check revealed
his license has four prior suspen-
sions and he was arrested.
Dustin Parker, 22, no address
given, was stopped the evening of
April 14 for running a stop sign
at CR 125 and Madison in Glen.
He was booked for driving on six
prior suspensions and not wear-
ing a seat belt.
Deputy Matt Sigers said he
was aware of prior suspensions
when he stopped a 1999 Dodge
van driven by Charles Burnsed,
25, of Sanderson near the SRs
121-228 interchange north of
Macclenny the morning of April
16.
The deputy noted in his report
that he had warned the same
driver of a similar violation nine
days earlier.


Cocaine found during vehicle search


Police made four arrests
the past week for possession of
drugs, two of the cases resulting
from traffic stops.
Ty Canaday, 40, of Macclenny
was at the wheel of a 1997 Nissan
stopped by Lt. Scotty Rhoden the
evening of April 16 for running a
stop sign at SR 121 and Linda in
the north city.
A subsequent search of the
vehicle by Sgt. Brad Dougherty
turned up a small baggie of pow-
der cocaine stashed in the boot of
a gear shift, along with steel wool
and a pipe commonly used for
smoking crack.
Mr. Canaday, who also had
a holstered pistol on the front
seat of the pickup, was arrested
for felony possession and hav-
ing narcotics paraphernalia. He


Escapes

officers

on foot
Warrants have been issued
for a Daytona Beach suspect who
presumably fled barefoot in a
dense wooded area off Interstate
10 near Sanderson the night of
April 14 and evaded police.
Surray Brown, 33, abandoned
a 1989 Oldsmobile beside the
eastbound lanes of the highway
at mile marker 323, and was
found by Deputy Robert Simp-
kins walking east about one mile
away around 9:45.
When the officer was check-
ing his identity through a crime
computer, Mr. Brown took off
running in the heavily forested
woods beyond the highway pe-
rimeter. Deputy Simpkins sum-
moned the sheriffs department
tracking dog and handler Patrick
McGauley, and they trailed the
suspect for a while before the dog
lost his scent.
Meanwhile, police learned Mr.
Brown was wanted on a Volusia
County warrant for burglary.
Deputy McGauley later spot-
ted the suspect walking along the
westbound road shoulder about
five miles east of the original area
where he fled, and found one of
his black tennis shoes in a bog.
The other shoe was found in the
Oldsmobile.
The search dog again lost a
scent and the suspect was not
seen again.
Back in the vehicle, Deputy
Simpkins found a variety of items
including a large screwdriver,
hammer, a necklace and earrings
with attached price tags indicat-
ing a value of $971, a GPS system
and a rock.
The vehicle had a jimmied
steering column and shattered
window. Its windshield had
writing and a price consistent
with the model year, and police
later contacted its owner Thomas
Hundley in Lake City.
The owner said he had given
the Oldsmobile to a man who
had done work for him, but did
not know his name.
Mr. Brown initially told Depu-
ty Simpkins he was walking from
Lake City where he had been left
at a fast food restaurant.
The warrants are for posses-
sion of burglary tools and resist-
ing police by fleeing.


was issued tickets for the traffic
violation and for having a faulty
tail light.
In other arrests:
Amanda Layfield, 23, of
Hilliard was arrested in the early
afternoon of April 17 for felony
possession of seven varieties of
prescription medication, posses-
sion of partially smoked mari-
juana cigarettes and a smoking
pipe.
Ms. Layfield was stopped on
SR 121 near CR 23D north of
Macclenny after Deputy Matt
Sigers said he observed her
speeding southbound and follow-
ing another vehicle too closely.
The driver gave consent to
search her 2002 Chevrolet and
the pills were found in various
locations.
Police acting on a complaint
of suspicious activity at an Ocean


Pond campground in west Baker
County arrested John Ingram,
70, of Taylor, Michigan on April
18 for felony possession of mari-
juana.
Deputy Rodney Driggers
said Mr. Ingram produced the
pot from inside his motor home
parked at Hog Pen Landing, and
admitted he had videotaped teen-
age girls at a bonfire the previous
night.
A complaint had been logged
about the videotaping and a sus-
pect in a white motor home offer-
ing other campers marijuana.
Scott Johnson, 19, of Jack-
sonville was arrested for misde-
meanor possession of marijuana
after he was found sleeping in the
women's rest room at City Park
in Macclenny the morning of
April 18.
Deputy Kevin Jenkins said Mr.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


CITY OF MACCLENNY


St. Johns permit is appealed

City says more water needed for future growth


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
The City of Macclenny is appealing a deci-
sion by St. Johns River Water Management
District effectively denying its application for
a 20-year permit to withdraw as much as 2
million gallons of water per day, averaged an-
nually, by 2027.
The city applied for the consumptive use
permit or CUP in August 2007, and for the last
two and half years city officials, including City
Manager Gerald Dopson and Macclenny's en-
gineering consultant Frank Darabi, have been
feeding additional information sought by the
district.
"We have attempted to respond to your
questions as much as we can, this process
has cost the City of Macclenny a significant
amount of money, ordinances and regula-
tions to withdraw the water simply for their
population and future growth," Mr. Dopson
wrote in the city's response to the ninth offi-
cial request for additional information or RAI
from the district.
"Before you and I retire, please issue this
permit or give the city whatever allocation you
think is appropriate," he said.
The ordinances included the tiered billing
structure for water that became effective last
November to encourage conservation. Under
tiered billing, the more water customers use,
the more expensive that water becomes.


Manager Dopson said the new rates have
spurred conservation. "More people are in-
quiring about leaks," he said. "People are
more concerned about that now."
The city has spent more than $50,000 to
pursue the 20-year permit
A five-year permit was recommended by
the district March 12, but for up to 1.02 mil-
lion gallons per day [MGD] on average annu-
ally by 2015, not the requested 20-year permit
for more than 2 MGD.
The city currently consumes an average of
roughly 0.9 MGD.
The water district no longer issues 20-year
permits. But Mr. Darabi, the city's engineer,
contends that change shouldn't affect Mac-
clenny because it applied for the permit in
2007, when the longer duration permits were
available.
Assistant City Manager Roger Yarbrough
argued the permit would limit the city's ability
to grow in the future and discourage commer-
cial development that creates jobs.
"They have a strangle hold on us," he told
the commission. "We need the jobs."
According to flow data from Mr. Darabi
from all three of the city's water plants, the
average daily use in 2008 was 0.947 MDG. He
said that additional conservation measures
have taken place since then like the instal-
lation of leak reducing meters and improve-
ments at the plant serving the southeast city.
"If development kicks off again, we have no
margin [for growth]," Mr. Darabi said. "That's

In observance the 90oth anniversary of its organization and its con-
tributions to the community, Mayor Gary Dopson and the Macclenny
City Commission have declared April 25, 2010 as GFWC Woman's
Club of Macclenny Day.
Mayor Dopson in his proclamation stated that "the GFWC Woman's
Club of Macclenny has continuously worked to promote, educate and
improve our community in the areas of the arts, education, conserva-
tion, public affairs, home life, international affairs and domestic vio-
lence awareness."
The Woman's Club of Macclenny, which currently has 49 members,
is holding a special open house celebration April 25 at its clubhouse on
S. 5th St. The event will be a time to recognize and reminisce about the
club's founding, history, members, community, national and interna-
tional work. The observance will take place from 2:00-4:00 pm.
"We are extremely excited about this special milestone in the club's
history," said club president Trilby Crews. "We are asking anyone plan-
ning to attend to please bring copies of photos of events that took place
at the Woman's Club building or a short written account of some spe-
cial occasion they or a member of their family may have shared at this
location."
The photos and written accounts will be compiled into a special
memory book to commemorate the 90oth anniversary.
The club will also be presenting four lifetime membership awards to
members with 15 or more years of service.
Entertainment will be a part of the celebration. The middle school
Tiger Paw Dance Team will be strutting their stuff on stage. Local mu-
sic instructor Gary Murch will perform classical guitar selections.
The club has repeatedly been recognized at the state level for its
many contributions to international programs such as Heifer Interna-
tional, which provides women in third world countries with livestock
to help them become self-sustaining and Operation Smile, which per-
forms surgery to repair facial deformities in children.
The club also raises funds to sponsor and train service dogs for indi-
viduals who are physically impaired.
Promotion of the arts in the community and the public schools has
been another of the club's ongoing projects and members have won
numerous blue ribbons for their own artistic creations.
The club has, year after year, received state recognition for the excel-
lence of its annual club scrapbook.
Founded in 1919 as The Mother's Club of Macclenny, it was dedicat-
edto the improvement of the community. It became part of the General
and Florida Women's Clubs organizations in 1920. Later it became the
GFWC Woman's Club of Macclenny in 1955.
"It's people like those in the Macclenny Woman's Club that make
this community a great place to live and we appreciate them so much,"
said city commissioner Vernon Bennett.

why we are appealing this."
The permit issued March 12 may be revised
by the district, should demand outstrip the
amount allocated by the permit, which gradu-
ally increases from 0.927 MGD this year to
1.02 MGD in 2015.
"Most industrial and commercial entities
that may want to locate in the [Walmart dis-
tribution center] industrial park do not have
the time to wait for us to get the CUP permit
revised, so they go somewhere else," Mr. Da-
rabi said.
The city had 26 days from the date of ap-
proval to contest the five-year permit. Mr.
Darabi said he intends to negotiate with the
district to include additional language in the
permit protecting the city from extensive de-
lays should a development opportunity sur-
face in need of water beyond the permitted
limit.
"We're going to sit down and work this
out," he said. "There's not a conflict with St.
Johns."
The district is forwarding the city's appeal
request to the Florida Division of Administra-
tive Hearings this week. The office will assign
an independent administrative law judge
to consider arguments from the city and the
district before making issuing recommenda-
tions.
The next appeal arena is the state District
Court of Appeals.

Vehicle burglaries

off Woodlawn Road
The sheriffs department was called to investigate a trio of vehicle
burglaries in the same neighborhood off Woodlawn Rd. overnight on
April 12.
In but one of the cases was the owner able to identify missing prop-
erty.
Jessica Kearnes said a purse and contents were missing from her car
parked off Ben Rowe Circle, and told police she last saw the purse on
April 11. She reported the incident April 13.
Melisa Knight said a window on her 1995 Chevrolet pickup was shat-
tered but nothing appeared missing when she inventoried it the morn-
ing of April 12. She lives on Ben Rowe also.
Yvonne Brock reported her unlocked Dodge pickup was entered the
same night off neighboring Adams Rd., but also reported nothing miss-
ing. Her husband's work truck was entered the same night.
In other reports involving vehicles:
A complaint names Jessica Barnwell, 21, of Glen St. Mary as the
person responsible for damaging a 199o Chevrolet pickup belonging to
her estranged boyfriend Joshua Fish.
A witness told police Ms. Barnwell went to Mr. Fish's residence off
CR 127 and struck the truck on the hood, windshield and window with
a hammer.
Helen Davis reported a golf cart stolen from a shed on her property
on Tom Wilkerson Rd. overnight April 13.
A 2005 Nissan belonging to Belinda Weaver of Green Cove Springs
was gutted by fire during the early morning hours of April 13 near CR
231 and Road 779 in the Osceola National Forest.
The vehicle was reported stolen that night.

Grand re-opening of Bennett's Feed
Although it's been operating for some months since a damaging fire, Bennett's Farm, Feed and Pet Store celebrated its
official grand re-opening with a customer and vendor appreciation day April 17. Brad Raulerson of Redneck Cooking lent
a hand preparing barbeque and Gary Fraser cooked up loads of chicken and rice for hungry patrons and vendors. Blue-
grass Breeze performed and kids had fun jumping in bounce houses and riding the miniature train. To show apprecia-
tion for community support after the fire, Bennett's gave away dozens of door prizes, including a $1,000 leather saddle.
Participating in the ribbon cutting are from left: Verna Crews, Randy Mclntosh, RickWilliams, Ken Wells, Patricia Bennett,
Bennie Joe Bennett, Sharon McCormick, Roy McCormick, Sheree Crews and Rita Taylor.


High school's FFA supplies a

petting zoo for PreK students

One Year Celebration


Thursday April 29

5:00pm 8:00pm


children beginning @ 5:30PM


Baby lambs and pigs, a heifer,
a horse, chickens and rabbits
paid a morning visit to kids April
14 as part of Zoo Day and the
PreK Center.
Greg Johnson, sponsor of
Baker County High School's
FFA program, along with FFA
students Kendall Brooks and
Clayton Lyons transported the
animals to the school, creating an
instant petting zoo for the kids to
experience.
Kindergarten students went
on a field trip to the Jacksonville
Zoo that day. Because the pre-k
children could not go, the FFA
program brought the "zoo" to
them.
Several classes of children
gathered in the bus circle and sat
in a large group while the heifer
and horse were unloaded from a
trailer.
Ms. Brooks introduced Lizzy,
a beautiful white Arabian horse.
She has taken care of him for
many years.
"Lizzyis 23 years old," she told
the kids. "He's retired now but he
used to be a show horse."
Lizzy paraded around elegant-
ly and patiently while kids asked
questions.
Where does a horse live?
What does it eat?
Do you ride it?
Ms. Brooks had a question of
her own for the kids.
"Did you know that horses
are frightened of thunder?" she
asked. "That's one reason it's im-
portant to have a barn so they can
take shelter during storms."
Lizzie said goodbye to the kids
by giving them, with a little help
from Ms. Brooks, a huge horsey
grin, showing lots of teeth.
The kids roared with laugh-
ter.
Petting the chickens was a
hit, too. Two hens, a White Leg-
horn and a Rhode Island Red,
were quiet and cooperative as
Mr. Johnson and Mr. Lyons held
them while they talked.
"You'll learn something inter-


testing today. If a hen is brown,
she lays brown eggs. White eggs
come from white hens," Mr.
Johnson told them.
The proof was definitely in the
pudding. During the program,
The White Leghorn laid an egg in
her cage and it was you guessed
it white.
The piglet, only three weeks
old, rooted about in the hay. Kids
learned that he wasn't yet weaned
but would soon start on solid food
and would gain weight rapidly,
reaching about 80 pounds by the
time he's 3 months old.
While Mr. Lyons held him for
the kids to see, he squirmed and
squealed.
Mr. Lyons just couldn't pass
up the opportunity for some en-
tertainment and called a teacher
up before the crowd.
"We're not leaving today until
you kiss this pig," he declared.
Being a good sport, teacher
Diane Kirby smacked the pig
right on the lips. Not once but
three times!
"Do pigs like to play in mud?"
one child asked.
Mr. Johnson nodded his
head.
"Pigs love to play in mud," he
said.
"So do kids," said one of the
teachers, with a laugh.
The kids wanted to know what


PHOTO BY KELLEY LANNIGAN


the pig's name was.
Mr. Lyons explained that the
pig didn't have a name because
he wasn't a pet, but was being
raised as a show animal.
Such pigs have notches in
their ears as a form of identifica-
tion. This pig's notches indicated
it was "one and seven" or pig
number seven from the first litter
born this spring.
The bunnies were a big hit,
too. There were three variet-
ies; New Zealand White, used
for meat; a Jersey Wooly, used
for fur; a Holland Lop, strictly a
pleasure animal and pet.
Then came the most special of
the visiting animals. Oreo, a two-
week-old black and white lamb.
Oreo wore a little blue harness
and was led around by a leash
which he didn't seem to mind at
all. He happily suckled on any-
thing presented to him fingers,
elbows, shoes.
"Oreo is only a baby and must
be bottle fed 8 ounces of milk
three times a day," Ms. Brooks
said.
As the program concluded,
the classes of children lined up
single file and one by one, petted
the little lamb. Oreo was so ador-
able that some of the children
couldn't resist hugging him and
giving him a kiss on the head.

Prayer breakfast April 15
A sumptuous feast was a treat for attendees of the Woman's Club of Macclen-
ny's annual prayer breakfast April 15. Special guests included members from
the Woman's Club of Jacksonville Beach as well as city commissioners Mike
Griffis and Gordon Crews and Sheriff Joey Dobson. Father Paul Smith, vicar of
St. James Episcopal Church in Macclenny gave the opening invocation and in-
coming Woman's Club president Sydney Ferreira gave a talk inspired by the
third chapter of Phillipians. Gail Moore of Olustee and Kelley Lannigan of Mac-
clenny performed musical selections.


Caution teen drivers


As teens prepare for prom
night and graduation day, the
Florida Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles and
Florida Highway Patrol are en-
couraging them to drive safely
and responsibly.
"This is an exciting time of
year for most young people as
they take the next big step in their
lives, and we want to help them
get there safely," said Florida
Highway Patrol Spokesperson
Lieutenant Bill Leeper.
Studies show that teens whose
parents set rules and closely
monitor their driving are 50 per-
cent less likely to be in a crash, 71
percent less likely to drive intoxi-
cated, and twice as likely to buck-
le up. DHSMV developed Drive


with CARE (Courtesy, Attention,
Responsibility and Experience),
which includes a Web site (www.
flhsmv.gov/teens/) and a driving
guide, as well as a presentation
for parents with teen drivers.
Teen drivers have the highest
crash rate among all age groups
in Florida and were involved in
more than 32,000 crashes in
2008. Out of the lo09 teen drivers
killed in crashes that year, nearly
two-thirds failed to buckle up.
The Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Ve-
hicles also encourages teens and
their parents to register their
Emergency Contact Information
online at www.flhsmv.gov/eci or
in a driver license office.

Diabetic Foot Care and Diabetic Shoes
By Dr. John Coleman, Podiatrist Foot Specialist


ARE YOU DIABETIC?
You may be entitled to obtain a pair of Diabetic
shoes with inserts paid for by insurance. Before you
get your next pair of Diabetic shoes
ask some Questions:

1. How long has the company been fitting
for diabetic shoes?
J Dr. Coleman has been fitting and
dispensing Diabetic shoes over 15 years.


2. If I have a problem, where is your office
and who will take care of me?
Some companies use employees who
have no Health Care Degree. They
y dispense shoes out of the trunk of their
car. If there is a problem with your
shoes or feet, you are on your own.
Dr. Coleman is Board Certified in
Diabetic foot care. He has lived and
had an office in in Macclenny for 24
years.
3. How do I get Diabetic shoes?
Dr. Coleman is the only provider in
Baker County who is certified to
evaluate your feet, prescribe your
shoes AND dispense your shoes.

For all your footcare needs call Dr John Coleman

Cats best Ponte Vedra


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
The Wildcat baseball team
split this week, winning a slugfest
with Ponte Vedra and falling in a
close game with the West Nassau
Warriors.
The Wildcats on April 15 end-
ed up on the short end against the
Warriors 4-3 on the road in Cal-
lahan. Cameron Crews pitched
well and Coach John Staples
praised his performance despite
the loss.
"We didn't have any relief for
Crews against West Nassau and
he pitched two innings longer


than he normally should have,"
said the coach.
Scooter Gross had a pair of hits
to lead the Cat offense against the
Warriors.
The Cats banged out 11 hits
against Ponte Vedra, includ-
ing a three-hit effort by Thomas
Sirk, two of them triples. Dillon
Jones was once again superb on
the mound, moving his record to
6-1.
The Cats play host to Episco-
pal on Wednesday, April 21, at
6:00 pm in the last regular sea-
son game. It will also be the last


Spring football
With the start of spring football a little over a month away, new
Wildcat head coach Ryan Sulkowski has been a busy man; settling in
with a new community, a new school and a new team.
So far the transition has been a smooth one.
"Right now I'm trying to pace myself," said Sulkowski. "It's all about
putting together a spring schedule, checking on grades and getting the
kids to get their physical. But it's rolling."
Sulkowski doesn't see wholesale changes in the offense and defense,
though he does plan to put in some "new wrinkles."
"I know I have the reputation as a spread offense guy, but it has to do
with what your personnel is capable of doing," he said.
He's been meeting with the booster club and has made an impres-
sion, and visa versa.
"We've had some great conversations," he said of the group. "We
all have the same vested interests and our missions and goals are the
same. It's about doing it for the kids."
Sulkowski may make some personnel changes in the coaching ranks
over the summer, but doesn't foresee many changes at the present. "I'm
still interviewing guys, but on such short notice, it's hard to bring guys
in not knowing what teaching positions will be opening up," he said.
Sulkowski plans to give the public its first look at the new Wildcat
football team with Midnight Madness at Memorial Stadium at mid-
night on May 1.
"We'll raise a little sweat and do our best to keep people awake," said
the coach.


regular season game for Coach
John Staples, who surprised the
Cats when he announced he will
not return in 2011.
BCHS will host the district
tournament starting Monday,
April 26. West Nassau will play
Bishop Snyder at 4:00 and Baker
County goes against Baldwin at
7:00. The winners will play April
26 at 7:00 with the winner mov-
ing on to the district champion-
ship game Thursday, April 29, at
7:00 at Baker County.
The Cats go into the tourna-
ment as the number 1 seed.


The Wildcat tennis team had
some good matches during the
district tournament on April 13 at
Bolles. Two of the Wildcat netters
made it to the semi-finals before
losing to Bishop Kenny.
It was always going to be a
rough road for Allen Murphy's
Cats. They were facing the big
boys in the district tournament:
Bolles, Bishop Kenny and Paxon.
All have players who will likely
move on to Division 1 college ten-
nis and the Cats had a hard time
matching up.
Trey Baker made it to the
semi-finals. The Cat number 1
had a first round bye and then
defeated Ribault 6-0, 6-0. Baker
ran into a Kenny buzz saw in the


Staples st
Wildcat baseball coach John
Staples surprised his players
this week when he an-
nounced that after ten
years as head coach at
BCHS he will resign at
the end of this year to
"pursue other educa-
tional avenues."
Staples, a three-time
BCHS Coach of the Year
and two-time North
Florida Coach of the
Year, is leaving a pro-
gram that has continued
to improve during his John
tenure.
In his 10 years at the helm, the
Wildcats have gone to the playoffs
nine times. In his eighteen years
of coaching at BCHS, Eau Gallie,
PK Yonge and Arlington Country
Day, Staples has amassed 338
wins, 10 district titles and 15
playoff wins. Seven of his players
have been drafted professionally
and 92 players have gone on to
college ball.
It was not an easy decision for
Staples, who is leaving a young
team, but one with tremendous
potential.
"I have gone back and forth
over the decision and decided to
step down." he said. "Somebody
will be walking into a gold mine
of a program. This is the best
group of freshmen and sopho-
mores I have had in any program
and they need an energetic per-
son to steer the ship."
Staples, who is currently clas-
sified as a teacher on assignment
heading up the Alternative School

Destiny de la Pena, the girls'
number 3, got a first-round bye
and then beat Yulee 6-1, 6-1. De
la Pena drew Kenny in the semis
and lost 1-6,1-6.
Nick Webster beat Ribault 6-
o, 6-0, but lost 2-6, 0-6 to Paxon
in the quarterfinals. Samuel Mur-
phy won 6-0, 6-0 over Ribault,
but lost 0-6, 0-6 to Paxon.
Spencer Burnette won 6-4, 6-
2 over West Nassau, but fell 1-6,
0-6 to Paxon.
Kari Crummey defeated West
Nassau 6-4, 6-4 and lost 0-6, o-

Crussey and Carissa Ward beat
West Nassau 6-0, 6-1, but then
