THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


81st Year, Vol. 4 Winner of 10 state awards for journalism excellence in 2009


Griffis is


opting out


of second


four years

JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
County commissioner Mike
Griffis announced this week he
will not seek re-election in No-
vember.
For the
last three-
and-a-half
years, Mr.
Griffis, 50,
has been
juggling
roles as
the elected
represen-
tative for
District 4,
the general
manager Mike Griffis
of NEF-
COM, a family man and deacon
at First Baptist Church of Mac-
clenny.
Something had to give.
"The duties and responsi-
bilities of being a commissioner
have become greater and great-
er and more time consuming,"
he said in a letter addressed to
the citizens of Baker County and
submitted to The Press May 18.
"So after much prayer and de-
liberation, I have decided not to
seek re-election as county com-
missioner."
The father of three and
grandfather of four also serves
as president of the Northeast
Florida Regional Council, a
non-profit land use planning
group based in Jacksonville,
and belongs to the Kiwanis Club
and Gideons International. Mr.
Griffis will leave the regional
council once his term as county
commissioner ends in the fall.
Launching another campaign
to retain his seat for four more
years would've been a daunting
task, he said.
"It's stressful campaigning;
going door-to-door asking folks
for their votes," said Mr. Griffis,
adding that he's thankful for his
time as a commissioner. "I've
met some of the best people that
I probably would have never got
a chance to meet if I hadn't rep-
resented District 4. It's been a

The district is the largest
in the county and includes
the sparsely populated north-
western area of Baker County,
including the communities of
Macedonia, Cuyler, Taylor and
Baxter.
"But it's not as populated
as the others," Mr. Griffis said.

Driving around in public vehicles

Local agency rules; unlimited use to emergency only 80-hour
JIM MCGAULEY
PRESS PUBLISHER I..t
editor@bakercountypress.com k!.. nen a ltv


When an employee of the
Baker County sheriffs depart-
ment drove to a residence in
west Macclenny the evening
of March 22 and heavily dam-
aged a vehicle using a baseball
bat, he arrived there and drove
off in a Dodge Dakota pickup
belonging to the department.
Brad Weeks, 32, of Glen St.
Mary, was at the time an IT
(Internet tech) employee who
also dabbled in graphics and
photography for the depart-
ment. He was authorized to
take the truck home at night,
said Sheriff Joey Dobson, be-
cause he was subject to being
called out for computer prob-
lems or to crime scenes as a
photographer. [See sidebar to
right of photos for disposition
of that case.]
"As soon as we found out
about that incident, we took the
truck away from him. You can
imagine how I reacted when
I learned he was using that
truck," said Sheriff Dobson.
The incident begs the ques-
tion: who else uses publicly-


owned vehicles in Baker County
and what are the rules?
In a nutshell, workers in all
local government agencies are
are driving dozens of vehicles,
generally if they are "on call"
and have to respond to emer-
gency situations like manhunts
in the case of police to break-
downs in Macclenny's sewer


and water systems.
The rules governing such
use, however, are in some cases
little more than understand-
ings between managers and
departments. Mileage records
are seldom retained and most
employees are on what can be
described as the honor system.
Two elected officials, Sheriff


Dobson and Clerk of Courts Al
Fraser, drive high-end Chev-
rolet SUVs courtesy of the tax-
payers. Other constitutional
officers use their own cars and
trucks and are reimbursed
for expenses. Some occasion-
ally use cars that are part of the
county fleet for out-of-county
meetings.


Wins congressional art contest


BOB GERARD I FEATURES


BCHS senior art student Nichole
Berry won the loth Annual Con-
gressional Art Competition last
Saturday at the Florida State Col-
lege in Jacksonville. Berry's pen
study, "We Are Connected" will be
displayed in the hallway of the US
Capitol for one year.
The drawing, which features a
self-portrait of Berry and a north-
ern wolf, is striking and one of its
most impressive features is that it
is executed completely in ballpoint
pen. Ballpoint is not generally con-
sidered an artistic medium, but in
Berry's hands it transcends its nor-
mal and mundane usage.
The unusual medium was one of the rea-
sons that Congressman Ander Crenshaw se-
lected Berry's work over finalists from Doug-
las Anderson, Bolles and Columbia High
School.


PHOTO COURTESY OF ANDER CREN
teacher Marilyn Harrell, Nichole Berry and Congressman C
"It is a magnificent piece of art that she did
with a ballpoint pen. You can go to the store
and buy a ball point pen, but you can't create
the art she created," said Congressman Cren-
shaw.
Berry, who attended the judging with her


parents, Stephen and Christina
Berry of Macclenny, and art teacher
Marilyn Harrell was shocked that
she had won the competition.
Ms. Harrell has taught Berry
since she was a freshman and has
watched her art blossom as a se-
nior.
"She's my aide and practically
lives in the art room. She has been
drawing since she was little and has
always been fascinated by the wolf,"
the teacher said.
Ms. Harrell, who will be retir-
ing after 35 years of teaching art at
BCHS, was thrilled that Berry took

rell. "Nichole's helped me to have a
really good end to my career."
Many of Berry's drawings are of wolves
and though she specializes in pen and ink she

An internal investiga-
tion earlier this month
determined that Mr.
Weeks violated depart-
ment policy by engaging
in conduct unbecom-
ing of a sheriff's depart-
ment employee. The
state attorney's office
recently agreed to a de-
ferred prosecution pact
under which the felony
criminal mischief charge
goes away if Mr. Weeks
pays restitution and
other costs and stays out
of trouble for one year.
He has been on suspen-
sion without pay since
the incident and will be
on extended suspension
another 80 hours, then
on probation status for
one year.

would be expected, operates by

Cyclist dies
A Baldwin man died May 13
of complications resulting from
injuries received when his mo-
torcycle collided with a pickup
truck just before noon on May 4
in downtown Macclenny.
Earl Leslie Bruckner, 74, thus
became the fourth traffic fatal-
ity in Baker County in 2010.
Mr. Bruckner was eastbound
on US 90 just east of the US 90
and South 5th intersection when
his 2003 Suzuki slammed into a
1994 Toyota that pulled in front
of him while making a u-turn
from the eastbound curb.
The motorcycle also struck
the left rear of a second vehicle
sitting westbound waiting for
traffic to move with the traffic
light change.
The driver of the pickup,
4o-year-old Shannon Monds of
Glen St. Mary, was charged with
improper start from a parked
position.


Drowns in pond


A toddler in the care
of his grandparents
at their residence off
Harry's Place off CR 127
died May 12 at Wolfson
Children's Hospital in
Jacksonville, the ap-
parent victim of an ac-
cidental drowning.
Kaden Anderson,
22 months old, was
flown there from Fraser
Hospital the previous
evening shortly after he Kadei
was found in a pond at
the rear of the property of Skip
and Linda Richardson of Glen
St. Mary.
Sgt. James Marker of the
sheriff's department said a
"miscommunication" of who


n And


was to be watching the
child the afternoon of
May 11 resulted in him
wandering off to the
pond. Family members
initiated CPR imme-
diately, followed up by
rescue workers who re-
sponded to the scene.
The child regained
a heartbeat at Fraser
but was not breathing
on his own. He died the
erson next morning at 9:45.
Young Kaden was
the son of Kacie Richardson
and Jonathan Anderson. He
was buried at Taylor Cemetery
following a funeral at Taylor
Church on May 14.


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR

The material covering the
road next to Gary Smothers'
property contains arsenic, lung-
scarring silica and other metals.
And when he read this in The
Press two weeks ago, it made
him more than a little uneasy.
Grayish dust from the mate-
rial, known as EZBase, is kicked
up "big time" when logging
trucks drive past, he said, cov-
ering a barn about 30 feet from
the roadway leading onto Rayo-
nier timberlands.

ty's [JEA] coal burning power
plant, the Northside Generation

Scott Shultz, JEA's byproducts
director. He said he's inspected
all such roads in the county and
none show signs of misappli-
cation, the chief safety hazard
when using the material.
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection [FDEP]
officials said last week that
when used properly that is
compacted and not allowed to

or other water bodies test-

the environment, even through

(From page 1
feared that runoff into the ditches
along his road would eventually
make its way into the groundwa-
ter and his well, carrying with it
harmful toxins in the EZBase.
But that's not the case, ac-
cording to Greg Strong, FDEP's
Northeast Florida district man-
ager.
"As long it's compacted cor-
rectly, there's no concern with
storm water or ground water," he
said during a conference call with
other FDEP officials and The
Press on May 12. "If it's misap-
plied, you can have migration."
So how can you tell when it's
misapplied?
"If there's chucks of the mate-
rial on the edge of the road or in
the storm water ditch area, that
is not a good application," added
Mike Fitzsimmons, FDEP's solid
waste program administrator for
Northeast Florida.
Mr. Schultz, who stressed that
EZBase is a safe alternative to
traditional lime rock road bases,
offered another sign the material
hasn't been properly applied.
"If it's getting soft when it
rains, then there's an issue," he
said.
FDEP approved the use of
EZBase by JEA in 2005. It came
under fire recently after an article
appeared in Jacksonville's Folio
Weekly about its misuse at a resi-
dential propertyin Middleburg.
Mr. Shultz said in that in-
stance, the material was used to
build a road through wetlands,
which represented violations not
only to the EZBase guidelines
but also rules against disturbing
wetlands with any kind of road
material.
EZBase contains arsenic, lead,
mercury and many other metals;
but officials with FDEP and JEA
say they're not present at levels
high enough to harm the envi-
ronment, particularly when kept
separated from surface water and
allowed to cure like cement.
"The levels of these metals
are well below state and federal
standards, not to mention when
it's compacted, they can't re-
lease into the environment," Mr.
Shultz said.
He added that 90 percent of
the material is lime rock and only
to percent is the ash from the
power plant.
Chief among the concerns for
some living on uncovered EZBase
roads here, however; has been
dusting that makes the material
airborne.
"Looking at what's in it, when
it's floating through the air, it
can't be good for you," said Pa-
mela Baldwin, 55, who resides on
Faye Road north of Macclenny
with her husband, age 62.
The Baltimore native said that
while the EZBase has stabilized
her once dirt road, and stopped
residents from getting stuck
in the mud when it rains, she's
concerned that inhaling the dust
could be harmful to her health.
Had Faye Road been covered
with lime rock instead of EZ-
Base, the health risks associated
with breathing the lime rock dust
would been the same, said FDEP
and JEA officials.
Material safety data sheets
from Occupational Safety and
Health Administration (OSHA)
on EZBase and lime rock confirm
that assertion. Both show al-
most identical hazards and warn
against prolonged inhalation due
to the presence of silica, which
can cause bronchitis and other
respiratory problems.
Similarly, Mr. Shultz said,
road workers using EZBase or
other dusty materials and ex-
posed to them for long periods
should wear protective masks.
Mr. Strong said toxicologists
from JEA and the University of
Florida have tested EZBase and
determined there is only a danger
when EZBase is ingested.


To contact FDEP about poten-
tial misapplications of EZBase,
residents can call (904) 807-
3353.

Driving around in public vehicles


(From page 1
far the largest fleet of cars, SUVs
and truck the majority issued
to investigators and deputies.
Sworn deputies are allowed
to drive the vehicles home after
their shifts, and are authorized to
use them to and from other, non-
duty trips like meetings and off-
hours jobs like security at banks
and on road projects though
the latter involves repayment of
modest, per-hour reimburse-
ment for gasoline.
Two maintenance workers
also have pickups, as does the
supervisor in charge of inmate
labor and another over facilities
(mainlythe newjail complex).
"If they're on-call 24 hours
a day, we give them a vehicle to
use," said Sheriff Dobson. '"They
understand those cars and trucks
are for official business only."
County manager Joe Cone
said seven pickups and smaller
SUVs are issued to department
heads, including Road Superin-
tendent Robert Fletcher and as-
sistant Darryl Crawford, David
Richardson, head of emergency
services, Fire Chief Richard
Dolan, two employees at animal
control and Donald Combs, the
county's recreation chief.
Another vehicle stays attached
to county administration for of-
ficial business and is used by a
number of employees. Others,
including building inspection
and zoning, use vehicles during
work hours and park them at the
annex at night.
Macclenny City Manager
Gerald Dopson takes a $300
monthly allowance for use of his
private pickup on city business,
but city-owned SUVs and pick-
ups are issued to other officials


including his assistant Roger
Yarborough and Joy Chapman,
who oversees code enforcement.
Ms. Chapman drives her ve-
hicle home despite the fact that
her job is not a "24-hour on call"
position.
"I made that [the SUV] part of
her compensation package when
she took the job," said Mr. Dop-
son, noting that Ms. Chapman
like others is not to use it for pri-
vate purposes.
The city also funds take-home
vehicles for Fire Chief Buddy
Dugger and three of his officers,
Joey Mathis, Scott Crews and
Martin Cole. Three more vehicles
are assigned to utility supervi-
sors.
"Those are all considered
'ready response' positions peo-
ple with pagers," said the manag-
er. "The idea is they can be called
out at night and it saves them
having to go to another location
to get a vehicle before they get to
where they're needed."
Mr. Dopson said the city has
no written policy on private use.
All of the vehicles are marked
with city logos and have the fa-
miliar yellow government license
tags.
Clerk of Courts Fraser said
the 2007 Chevrolet Suburban he
takes home to Glen St. Mary each
day is also used for out-of-county
trips on county business, and
for daily runs to the post office,
bank and now the new jail north
of Macclenny for first appearance
and other court hearings.
It, however, does not have a
yellow tag; Mr. Fraser said he
purchased a regular license plate
using private funds. When asked
if he did that to obscure the fact
that the Suburban was county-

owned, he declined direct com-
ment.
He does, however, account for
personal miles each year as ad-
vised by an auditor. Those miles
count for personal income.
Sheriff Dobson said he does
not break out personal miles on
the Chevrolet Tahoe [he recently
took delivery of a new model -
identical in appearance and op-
tions to the two-year-old one that
was traded in with a price tag
in the $50,000 range]. Sheriffs
traditionally use county-owned
vehicles, though many opt for
the less costly transportation like
unmarked cars with the police
package.
The Baker County school
district appears to be the most re-
strictive on use of public vehicles,
utilizing but two former driver ed
vehicles for employees to take to
meetings and other events. The
district requires maintenance
workers to bring trucks back to
the yard off Jonathan St. in Mac-
clenny each afternoon.
Superintendent Sherrie Raul-


erson uses an SUV displaying a
yellow tag and passed down from
the sheriffs department for offi-
cial business. She takes it home
at night in case she is called out
or goes to evening meetings.
School bus drivers living in
far-flung communities like Bax-
ter park them at home at night
as well since they typically begin
their morning runs relatively
close to home.

sent wrong signals in Mann case


IMPRESSIONS
Jim McGauley
The City of Macclenny has
been busy sending out the wrong
signals since one of its key em-
ployees was arrested back in
March for sexual battery of un-
derage girls.
First, city employees led by
Manager Gerald Dopson and de-
partment heads appeared at two
bond hearings in the intervening
weeks attempting to secure the
release of Marshall Mann, the
$49,ooo-a-year Internet and
technology expert who has been
with the city more than six years.
All of them, along with mem-
bers of the defendant's family and
church, stood in the courtroom
in affirmation of the petition to
reduce his bond.
The judge [not the same one
who originally set the bond] ac-
quiesced, dropping it from near
$300,000 to $50,000 and Mr.
Mann was released from county
jail.
His family and even his church
family being there that's un-
derstandable. But for the city's
administration, on public time,
to file into a court of law for that
purpose, well, it sends a message
that's unseemly at best.
Then came last week's deci-
sion by the Macclenny Commis-
sion to allow Manager Dopson
to reinstate Mr. Mann under the
provision that he have no contact
with the public.
The manager recommended
it as one of several ways the city
could continue to make use of
Mr. Mann's abilities in computer
technology and other related ar-
eas [he has an exemplary work
record] and retain continuity of
Macclenny's business operation.
Mr. Dopson also argued it
would be difficult to find a re-
placement pending the outcome
of Mr. Mann's criminal case.
Both points are well taken, but
he should have put forth another
option: continued suspension
without pay pending the outcome
of the case.
The city would not abandon
or appear to abandon the hal-
lowed principle of "innocent until
proven guilty" by continuing the
suspension.
Likewise, reinstatement of
Mr. Mann under the condition
that he not be in contact with the
public neither upholds or strikes
down that honored principle.
Here's a man currently under
an 11-count information charg-
ing him with lewd molestation
of a female under 12, engaging in
sexual activity with children ages
12 to 18 and lewd molestation of
children between 12 and 16.
All of these are serious felo-
nies, and if Mr. Mann is con-
victed he will likely spend all or
most of his remaining natural life
in prison. That's pretty grim, but
that's how seriously society takes
offenses like this.


If he's innocent, it will take
more than a natural lifetime for
those who got him in this fix to
compensate for it.
For city officials to, in effect,
to use their positions even by
feint inference to intervene in
the bonding process, and then to
re-instate Mr. Mann in this fash-
ion is simply too nuance-filled.
It's murky and it sends absolutely
the wrong message to everyone


outside city hall about the proper
role of those officials in criminal
matters involving their own em-
ployees, or anyone else for that
matter.
One court official remarked
last week that no such lobby-
ing for bond release has taken
place in the case of the son of
another city employee in county
jail charged with you guessed
it a sexual offense involving a


The 'ShamWow


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD

I had a relatively slow week-
end, which has allowed me to
catch up on the news of the
world and I realize that there are
a lot of problems that need solv-
ing. I don't know that we need to
depend upon the powers that be
and talking heads to tackle the
big problems that are facing the
world.
No, instead we need some-
one to look at them from a fresh
perspective unencumbered by
silly things like facts and scien-
tific possibility. That's where I
come in. Facts have never been
a big problem for me and since I
haven't had a science class since
my freshman year in college, I
can see things through a clear
lens.


So here goes, Bob's take on the
problems plaguing the world.
V I saw the unfortunate news
that the massive oil spill in the
Gulf of Mexico has hit the Gulf
Stream and will not only threat-
en the west coast of Florida (as
well as Alabama, Mississippi,
Louisiana and Texas) but the
east coast as well.

Where is Billy Mays when we
need him?
To the uninformed, Mays was
the television pitchman who
died last year of a drug induced
heart attack. If he'd only known
his expertise would have been
needed not only by housewives
and college students trying to
get their whites whiter and their


minor.
The defendant has never had a
bond hearing and has been in jail
for months.
As Manager Dopson noted
last week, the city has to be very
careful of how of this is perceived
by the public it serves. He's abso-
lutely correct, but it appears his
sense of perception and that of
elected commissioners fall a bit
short of what in effect should be


p


way oi
colors brighter, but the entire
southern coast of the United
States, well...
Had Billy have been here he
would have Oxicleaned the en-
tire Gulf. That smiling bearded
face would have been broadcast
from a BP chartered ship close
to the oil spill.
"Worried about cleaning up
a massive oil spill in the Gulf of
Mexico? Relax. Don't clean it
- Oxiclean it." Then he'd smile
that toothy grin as the cameras
cut to hundreds of helicopters
dumping thousands of gallons
of Oxiclean on the oil spill.
But with Billy gone that solu-
tion is iffy at best.
Not to worry.
Billy's competitor, the ubiqui-


4


a no-brainer.
Perhaps Mr. Mann's co-work-
ers will have involvement in this
case as witnesses or otherwise
before its conclusion, and that's
something they can't avoid.
But the city leadership should,
from this point on, be very care-
ful of the message it sends via
any further action, or perceived
action, that could be taken as in-
appropriate interference.

tous "Vince" of ShamWow fame,
has stepped in to fill the breach.
Armed with his trademark
headset microphone, Vince an-
nounced in a news conference
this past week that the "As-
SeenOnTV Institute" in White
Plains, New York has been hard
at work on solving the oil spill
problem.
They are currently working
on a government-funded effort
to stitch together hundreds of
thousands of the yellow chamois
cloths into a hundred-mile wide
ShamWow that will be dropped
on the oil spill.

claims it will hold up to 12

Anna Bell:"l agree with Pat ... Unfor-

on the street, but he has not been tried
and convicted. We're all entitled to our due

Marsha Bennett: "Would any other

likely have been suspended without pay


Christina King: "He should be allowed

Pat Cobb: "Marsha has a point. I work
for the State of Florida and I think I would
not be allowed to work. I would probably
be put on leave without pay until the out-
come of the trial or be allowed to resign.
But if his work environment is secluded

Don Yonn: "Innocent until proven

Chrissie Cohen:"Well to start off with
whether he is guilty or not there was
enough evidence to charge him with 11
counts of some sort of sexual misconduct

no older than 16... Those are the innocent
ones, so why is it our responsibility to ac-
commodate him so he can work and more

LETTER TO THE
EDITOR



Not the


Tea Party


leaders
Dear Editor:
A few clarifications should be
made to Mr. Taylor's letter to the
editor last week.
He expressed concern about
the actions of the "leader" of the
Baker County Tea Party at a re-
cent county commission meet-
ing. The Tea Partyis a grass roots
movement started a little over a
year ago by citizens with com-
mon concerns about the direc-
tion and future of our country.
Those concerns include, but are
not limited to, the deficit, health
care reform, taxes, cap and trade,
unemployment, bailouts and our
constitutional rights.
The Tea Party does not have a
leader and any statements made
at a county commission meeting
are those of a private citizen exer-
cising his right of free speech.
Mr. Taylor spoke of "rich de-
velopers" who make up the local
party. Our members come from
all economic levels there is no
means test.
Members of the Tea Party are
not a group of racists plotting
to overthrow the government.
We are parents, grandparents,
church members and your next
door neighbor concerned about
the future of our children and
grandchildren. We encourage all
citizens to get involved.

offending heavy crude will be

The institute claims the only
side effect of the solution will be
a drop in water level in the Gulf
and an uncertainty about what
to do with the used ShamWow
once the problem is taken care
of and the Gulf is back to nor-
mal.

NEW RIVER LANDFILL



'Conditional' landfill fee decrease


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com

Alachua County's waste man-
agement director Thomas Keith
sought forgiveness from the New
River landfill's board of directors
the evening of May 14 for what
the facility's director, Darrell
O'Neal, called an insult from the
Alachua and Gainesville commis-
sioners last month.
When Mr. O'Neal traveled
to Gainesville with board chair-
woman Karen Cossey to make a
presentation April 29, they were
asked to delay it until the com-
peting Chesser Island landfill in
Georgia could present alongside
New River.
"I don't think they have a con-
tract with Chesser Island though,"
Mr. O'Neal said last week before
Mr. Keith addressed the board,
which includes commissioners
from each of the tri-county land-
fill's members Baker, Bradford
and Union counties.
New River began contracting
with Alachua County for disposal
of that area's garbage in 1996
and today it accounts for roughly
70 percent of New River's waste
stream. Recently, however,
Alahcua's largest hauler of com-
mercial waste, Emerald Waste
Services [EWS], began diverting
garbage from New River for the
Chesser Island facility much far-
ther north in Charlton County.
EWS contends New River's
tipping fees are exorbitant and
that's why its diverting the waste
from Alachua County's transfer
station, where it would be con-
tractually obligated for disposal
at New River.
A study commissioned by
Alachua County's solid waste
department that purportedly
showed New River's extremely
healthy financial position in-
cluding more than $20 million
in reserves and no outstanding
debt seemed to bolster EMS's
contention.
"I have no problem with New
River or the treatment we receive
here," said Mr. Keith before New

often scan her drawings into the
computer and use Photoshop to
color them.
"I started drawing with ball-
point when I was in the sixth or
seventh grade," said Berry. "At
first they were all scraggly and
sketchy but after a while I was
able to control them better. The
pens are nothing special. Right
now you can go to Walmart and
get the same pen I used."
Berry is very careful with her
pens. "I try to use the same one
for the whole drawing because
different pens have different ink
tones. One may have more of a
gray tone while another has more
blue so you can't very well mix
them," she said. "I was lucky that
I could use the same pen through
the whole drawing."
Berry also worries about what
she calls "fleas," the little ink
drops that sometimes emit from
a ballpoint.
One of the most exciting parts
of winning the competition is that
she'll fly to Washington on June
17 for a reception at the Capitol.
She has never been on a plane
before or to Washington.
Berry almost didn't make the
judging and arrived just as the
winners were being announced.
"I didn't see my drawing
up there with the others and I
thought 'Oh, no, there's been
some kind of mistake,'" said
Berry. "They started calling
other people's names and I got
more nervous and when they got
through the fourth one I thought
'Oh, my God, I've won.'"
Berry was strangely calm as
she went up to receive the award.
"I was calm but on the inside was
ready to jump out of my skin,"
she said. "My mom was crying
and I was interviewed by a couple
of different television stations."
Berry will get an all-expense
paid trip to Washington DC to


see her art on displayin the Capi-
tol Building, where it will be seen
by hundreds of thousands of visi-
tors.
She has also been offered a
$6000 scholarship to Savannah
College of Art and Design and the

worth of art supplies from Reddi-
Arts in Jacksonville.

Before the meeting, Mr.

ville and Alachua commissioners
in late April in part that New


River provides Alachua's haulers
with a dedicated entrance, lanes,
working areas, equipment and
asbestos disposal area.
He had also hoped to reiterate
New River's position that Alach-
ua's request for a $2.50 reduction
in its $31 tipping fee would only
be entertained once the county
gains control of all its waste and

BAKER COUNTY COMMISSION



To mull a $15 EMS fee


Impact fee moratorium possible


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
The Baker County Commis-
sion will soon consider estab-
lishing a $15 annual residential
property assessment for emer-
gency medical services [EMS]
and beginning a one-year hiatus
on impact fees.
Commissioners authorized the
advertisement of public hearings
for both measures during a more
than four-hour meeting the after-
noon of May 18.
The EMS department's
roughly $1.4-million budget is
subsidized with each year with
revenue from the county's gener-
al fund, which consists largely of
property and other tax dollars.
"EMS is a drain on the general
fund," county manager Joe Cone
told the board.
EMS director David Richard-
son estimated earlier this month
the general fund subsidy for
EMS is between $300,000 and
$400,000 a year. The proposed
$15 assessment on 6889 conven-
tional and mobile homes outside
Macclenny would generate about
$103,000.
Mr. Cone said the assessment
as proposed would only affect
residents outside Macclenny, un-
less the city commissioners chose
to adopt the fee as well.
That means county homeown-
ers could potentially end up cov-
ering more of the cost for EMS
services than those in the city,
which doesn't have its own EMS
department.
Macclenny property owners
pay both city and county taxes,
however.
In discussing a temporary
moratorium on impact fees,
which are paid when new homes
and business are built, commis-
sioners were more divided.
Commissioner Gordon Crews
reasoned that the drop in rev-
enue for roads and other projects
would be worth the potential eco-
nomic gains.
"It's an opportunity for us to
help the people of Baker County,
whether they're builders or just
someone wanting to build a
house," he said.
The county's impact fee for
a single family home is $3750,
but $2250 of that sum goes to
the school district. The county's
portion, $1500, generated about
$13,500 during the first quarter
of 2010 and some $650,000 since
impact fees were put in place.
Commissioner Mike Griffis
also favored the one-year mora-
torium, saying that combined
with the federal government's
$8500 tax credit, the measure
could push some on the fence
financially into home ownership.
Without forgoing the entire
impact fee, commissioners Mi-
chael Crews and Alex Robinson
didn't believe a moratorium just
on the county's portion could
boost development. Moratori-
ums in Bradford and Nassau
counties haven't yielded signifi-
cant growth, they said.
"I don't see it working unless
we do it with the school," com-
mented Mr. Robinson.
He and Michael Crews even-
tually acquiesced, agreeing to
advertise a public hearing to con-
sider the moratorium.
Both said they hoped to use
the hiatus in fees to fix inequities
they saw in the existing impact
fee ordinance.
Because the fees are collected
when building permits are is-
sued, existing county residents
who build new homes here must
pay the fee, while new county
residents buying existing homes


would not.
"It's fundamentally unfair the
way it works now," said Michael
Crews.
The county cannot assess im-
pact fees on new residents mov-
ing into existing homes, advised
county attorney Terry Brown,
but a credit for existing residents
building new homes in the county
may be possible.
"It won't make a lot of differ-
ence," added Mercantile Bank
president John Kennedy, who
favored the moratorium, "but it
certainly won't hurt."
Commissioner Mark Hart-
ley supported the measure, but
only if the school board agreed to
waiving its portion as well.
"The only way I'll vote for a
moratorium is to give us time to
fix [the existing impact fee ordi-
nance]," asserted Mr. Robinson.
Even though the county has
sole authority over impact fees,
commissioners instructed staff to
seek support from school board
members.
Mr. Cone said the following
day that two ordinances could
be drafted, one for a moratorium
on the county's portion of the
fee and a second on the school
district's portion.
"If the school board doesn't
want to do that, they could just
vote the [second] ordinance
down," he said.
In other business that eve-
ning:
SThe commission decided to
table a rezoning request from the
Florida Department of Correc-
tions [FDOC] to accommodate
an inmate re-entry facility on 64
acres on the south side of US 90
just west of the I-to interchange
with US 90.
The project has been opposed
by Kenneth Moore and his fam-
ily, who reside on an adjacent 80
acres.
FDOC secretary Walter Mc-
Neil suggested a land swap be-
tween the state and the Baker
County Economic Development
Commission, which owns about
160 acres in the area that doesn't
abut Mr. Moore's land, as a pos-
sible compromise.
Commissioners continued
the state's rezoning request until
June 21 so staff could further in-
vestigate the land swap.
"I think that's the best deal,"


Mr. Moore said of potential
swap.
Commissioners also instruct-
ed staff to draft an ordinance
exempting large lot divisions
- those leaving parcels greater
than 20 acres from subdivision
regulations that require platting
and paving of dirt roads.
Planning director Ed Preston
said the ordinance would be writ-
ten so that such parcels would not
be eligible for so-called home-
stead division or family lots. Both
refer to other provisions of the
land development regulations
that exempt certain parcels from
subdivision rules.
Kevin Shell, one of three
county residents on the St. Mary's
River Management Committee,
updated commissioners on the
committee's activities, which in-
clude the annual river clean-up
event every March.
He said two vacancies remain
on the committee for Baker
County representatives. The re-
maining committee consists of
five members each from Nassau
County, Charlton County, GA
and Camden County, GA.
Anyone interested in serving
on the committee should contact
Mr. Shell by e-mail at kdshell@
nefcom.net.
The commission also ap-
proved the purchase of new
lawn maintenance equipment
for $6199 and an EMS training
dummy for $2856.

Decries killing by pit bull


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
Macclenny's leash and dan-
gerous dog laws were tested this
month, and in the opinion of one
resident, whose pets were mauled
to death by a pit bull, they're not
very effective in preventing such
attacks.
"Dangerous dogs seem to have
more rights than the people they
victimize," College Street resi-
dent Kelley Lannigan told city
commissioners the evening of
May 11.
Ms. Lannigan, who is em-
ployed by The Baker County
Press, addressed the board for
almost 20 minutes, recalling the
events of April 27, when her cat
Mopsey and its newborn kitten
were killed after Jessica Reichen-
bach's dogs got loose about 7:30
pm.
"[Mopsey's] neck was broken,
as was her upper back leg," Ms.
Lannigan said. "Both ends of the
bone protruded from her body
in a hideous compound fracture.
Her body was punctured count-
less times. Mopsey's newborn
kitten was punctured through
its stomach, killing it instantly...
Mopsey would not leave her baby
and she died for it."
The city's dangerous dog or-
dinance establishes a process,
including appeals, by which dogs
can be deemed dangerous by
animal control and their owners
mandated to register and confine
them.
Should the owners not comply
with requirements in the ordi-
nance like neutering, tattooing,
vaccinating and photographing
the dogs, they can be confiscated
and eventually euthanized by the
city.
Ms. Reichenbach's pit bulls
have a history of leaving her prop-
erty and harassing neighbors. In
November 2008 she signed a
statement agreeing to keep her
red-nose pit bull confined to her
property, and that if she didn't,
she agreed to "give up the dog or
move it outside the City of Mac-
clennylimits ..."
"Last fall, they went on a ram-
page," Ms. Lannigan told the
commission, "and caused dam-
age to the private property of


another College Street resident.
They ran helter skelter within the
fenced yard area of this house,
repeatedly charging at the owner
who ran several times back into
her house ... Once, one of the
loose pit bulls charged into my
house, tearing around the inte-
rior, scaring the pants off me and
knocking over furniture."
Ms. Reichenbach's pit bulls
were relocated to a friend's resi-
dence after the late-April inci-
dent. Since then, they've been
deemed dangerous dogs by the
city, said assistant city manager
Roger Yarborough.
It's the first time Macclenny
has deemed a dog dangerous
since enacting the law in August
2009.
Ms. Reichenbach said she's not
appealing the determination and
intends to have the dogs tagged
and neutered in Macclenny be-
fore returning them to Georgia.
"They are not coming back
to my home," she said. "I'm re-
ally sorry that this happened. We
hate that it did ... We all kind of
lost something in this ordeal."
Mr. Yarborough said he will
notify Charlton County officials of
the dogs' presence there and that
Ms. Reichenbach must notify the
city if they're moved again.
"If she moves them or sells
them or anything, she has to let
us know," he said. "She's got to
notify me and I have to notify
wherever they're going to."
Also scrutinized last week was
the city's enforcement of its leash
law, which requires dogs be re-
strained or enclosed at all times.
While Ms. Reichenbach violat-
ed the law each time the animals
ran loose, and therefore could be
subject to fines up to $500 and
60 days in jail for each instance,
city attorney Frank Maloney said
it would be costly to pursue either
penalty in court.
Ms. Lannigan and others
members of the public at the
commission meeting questioned
whether existing laws, both lo-
cally and at the state level, are
enough to ensure pit bull owners
maintain control of their pets.
"Does the city have any ac-
countability to its residents for
these incidents?" she asked.
"What I've heard from many dis-
contented people in the commu-

nity is that the current structure
of dealing with problem of dan-
gerous dogs and their negligent
owners is not being addressed
adequately or fairly at all ... It
gives the impression that city of-
ficials don't care."
Mayor Gary Dopson said, in
fact, the city does care and cited
ordinances that limit the number
of pets per household and require
pet to be leashed in public.
"I deeply regret your loss,"
commented the mayor's brother,
city manager Gerald Dopson.
"We try to deal with these situa-
tions and be protective, but we're
not always successful."
Mr. Maloney added that while
some communities have tried to
outlaw pit bulls, state statutes
prohibit banning specific breeds.
Macclenny also doesn't have a
full-time animal control officer,
and often must rely on back up
from county animal control and
law enforcement.
In other business that eve-
ning:
The board, which was absent
commissioners Vernon Bennett
and Tommy Johns, approved a
change to its land use ordinance
to add building trades contrac-
tor as a use only permitted by
special exception in commercial
districts.
Such uses require an applica-
tion to the city for approval by
the Zoning Adjustment Board.
Commissioners Dr. Richard
Johnson, Phil Rhoden and Gary
Dopson also approved on first
reading a change to the building
code ordinance to require 24 feet
widths on local streets instead of
20 feet.
Final approval is set for next
month.
Although Commissioner Phil
Rhoden voted in favor of the
amendment, he said that 24 feet
would not be wide enough for
emergency vehicles to pass when
vehicles are parked along the
road shoulder.
"I feel like we're not gaining
a lot of ground with 24 feet," he
said.
The board also voted 3-0
to ban Internet cafes pending
further investigation about how
they operate and whether they're
appropriate inside city limits.

Super-shoplift at Walmart May 10 Arrests for crack sale


Trio hauls off
Three suspects entered the Walmart Su-
percenter the evening of May to and in the
space of 20 minutes managed to load up two
shopping carts with $2618 in merchandise
before leaving through the garden center and
driving off in a vehicle.
The suspects, a white male, black male and
black female, were caught on surveillance
tape that was later turned over to the sheriffs
department.
The stolen loot includes two DVD players,
a laptop computer, two televisions, a video
game and other electronic merchandise.
The video shows them entering the store at
8:15 and leaving at 8:35. They left the prop-
erty in a silver Pontiac.
A store security employee initially suspect-
ed they may be the same suspects who pulled
off a similar heist at the Walmart in Starke,
but that theory was later discounted.
In other theft cases:
Two suspects were arrested and a third is
sought for stealing collectible coins, a laptop
computer, derringer pistol and costume jew-
elry from a residence off North 40 Circle the


Two-year terms


for drugs,
Two defendants were given
prison sentences of two years
after entering no contest pleas
in circuit court on May 17. Judge
Phyllis Rosier adjudicated both
of them guilty.
One of the defendants,
Bathsheba Fudge, 33,
of Macclenny is already
serving a 16-month
sentence in a Columbia
County case and it will
run concurrent with the
one handed down this
week.
Ms. Fudge, who court
records indicate also has
a Lake City residence,
entered the plea to two Bathsheba
counts of possession
and sale of crack cocaine to buy-
ers working undercover for the
sheriffs department.
The buys both took place out-
side the Fastway convenience
store on September 23 and 28 of
last year. The purchase price was
$100 in each case.
The Columbia County sen-
tence was for felony
theft. The Baker County
sentence is 27.3 months.
In the second case,
Gregory Barton of Mac-
clenny pleaded to driving
on a license with five sus-
pensions and two counts
of battery on county
deputies.
Mr. Barton, 25, also
admitted to violating
probation by being ar-
rested on those charges. Gregory
Court records show he
had been on probation twice be-
fore when he was stopped by po-
lice driving in Glen St. Mary the
evening of February 27, 2010.
The defendant accosted depu-
ties Koty Crews and Johnny
Hodges as he attempted to flee
from them, and was tasered be-
fore he was subdued.
At the time he was on a three-
year probation for aggravated
assault.
Judge Rosier ordered the two-
year sentences be served concur-

Man robbed, struck
Three persons, two of them juvenile males, were arrested May 15
for robbery and battery of a Sanderson man off E.J. Paige Rd. north of
town.
William (Billy) Raulerson, 24, said he was accosted by the three who
then stole cash, credit cards, a wallet, cell phone and a razor knife from
the pickup truck he abandoned.
He told Deputy Rodney Driggers he was seated in his truck parked
alongside a vehicle occupied by Doug Givens, 36, of Glen St. Mary when
they were approached by Winche Coleman, 18, and the two others, ages
16 and 17.
Mr. Coleman was upset that Mr. Givens earlier had spun the tires of
his vehicle in the garden of Anthony Coleman on Hill Lane. The latter
is the suspect's father and Mr. Givens' uncle.
"What's the problem with you, cracker?" Mr. Raulerson quoted the
suspect as saying before he reached into the truck and grabbed the ra-
zor knife. The victim also said Mr. Coleman threatened to shoot him,
and that he was struck by the 16-year-old who reached through the
truck window.
Mr. Raulerson then said he fled the scene in Mr. Givens' vehicle, and
returned later to find his wallet with the cards and identification, along
with $520 cash, were gone along with the other property.
When questioned later, the suspects denied taking the items, and
the 16-year-old suspect told Deputy Michael Hauge that Mr. Raulerson
exited his pickup armed with a knife.
All three subjects were identified by the victim via a photo lineup,
and the 17-year-old was being sought.
Charges against them include aggravated assault, battery, criminal
mischief and robbery with a weapon. A complaint for criminal mischief
was filed against Mr. Givens for damaging the garden.
The incident occurred about 1:40 that afternoon.

Patient kicks officer


A 25-year-old female patient
at Northeast Florida State Hos-
pital with a history of violent be-
havior toward staff was named in
a criminal complaint May 11 for
allegedly kicking a member of
the security staff attempting to
restrain her.
Ronald Hines, 58, a hospital
security officer, told Deputy Rod-
ney Driggers he and others were
attempting to place the woman,
age 25, in a four-point restraint
because of her violent behavior.
The patient then allegedly
kicked Mr. Hines in the face with
her right leg, causing him to tem-
porarily blackout. He was treated
by the medical staff shortly after
the 10:00 am incident then re-
ferred to a private physician.
The same woman was named
in a complaint April 19 for injur-
ing a nurse during another violent
episode in which she continually
struck her head against a wall.
She managed to grab the nurse
around the legs and twist several
times, resulting in a sprained
knee.
In other recent reports of vio-
lent behavior:
Ramona Robertson, 22, of
Macclenny was charged with
aggravated assault for allegedly
threatening Jeremiah Jones, 27,
also of Macclenny, with a base-
ball bat.
The incident occurred at a
school bus stop off Ninth St. the
morning of May to, and was wit-
nessed by another woman who
reported it to Deputy Shawn Bis-
hara, who was in the neighbor-
hood.
The officer also noted in his
report that Ms. Robertson had


in her possession four pills of
Xanax, for which she did not have
a prescription. The report does
not indicate that she was charged
with drug possession.
Dakota Carter, 18, was ar-
rested for domestic battery about
midnight on May 14 against his
mother Alisa Carter, 37, at their
residence off Tim Rhoden Rd.
north of Macclenny.
The mother and other wit-
nesses in the family told Deputy
Jason Bryan that Mr. Carter be-
came enraged when he learned
his mother had given money
to his father. He then allegedly
slammed her to the floor and
struck her in the face.
Police arrested Frances Boyd,
68, for angrily pushing Wayne
Chiasson, 19, a clerk at the CVS
store in downtown Macclenny
the afternoon of May 14.
The victim and other witness-
es said Ms. Boyd became upset
when told she had to wait for a
refund on cigarettes.
She was charged with battery.
Both parties to a domestic
dispute during the early morning
hours of May 15 were named in
complaints for domestic battery.
Deputy David Nichols said
Jennifer McGinnis, 27, accused
her husband of slamming a door
on her hand as she attempted to
leave their residence off Charlie
Rowe Rd.
Mr. McGinnis said moments
before he was struck by his wife,
who later contacted police.
The Department of Children
and Families was notified be-
cause the couple's child was pres-
ent during the incident at about
5:00 am.

A couple from outside Baker
County was jailed the afternoon
of May 14 after they sold a con-
fidential source working for the
sheriffs department 39 pills of
Oxycodone during a roadside
transaction off CR 228 southeast
of Macclenny.
Charged with felony sale of 22
grams of the prescription drug
were Clint Waters, 21, of Jack-
sonville and Heather Keller, 23,
of Keystone Heights.
Investigator Erik Deloach said
arrangements were made to pur-
chase the pills after police were
tipped off by a second informant.
The buy is the latest in a series set
up in advance by the informants
that resulted in the arrest of sell-
ers from the Jacksonville area.
Investigators said they recov-
ered the pills wrapped in a paper
towel after being purchased from
the informants, and another six
pills in a prescription bottle with
Mr. Waters name from inside his
vehicle.
The male suspect also had
$139 in cash stashed inside a leg
bandage.
Investigator Deloach said Ms.
Keller was taken to Fraser Hos-
pital from the scene of the arrest
near Blackbottom for treatment
of an alleged panic attack. There
hospital personnel extracted the
$80 used to purchase the drugs
from a body cavity.
In other arrests recently:


Joshua Spires, 23, of Glen St.
Mary was arrested for disorderly
intoxication after police were
called in the early morning hours
of May 14 to a residence off Long
Dr. near Macclenny.
Deputy Jason Bryan said Mr.
Spires was being unruly and
cursing while standing on the
front lawn of the residence about
3:oo am.
Ryan Giordano, 24, was in-
toxicated when officers arrived
at the residence of his father
Kenneth off Creekside Dr. near
Macclenny about 2:20 am on
May 13.
The father called police when
his son resisted attempts to
prevent him from driving away
because of his intoxicated state.
He was charged by Deputy John
Hardin with disorderly conduct.
Deputy Randy Davis arrested
Nathen Collett, 30, of Jackson-
ville, who was wanted on a Duval
County warrant for aggravated
battery.
Mr. Collett was a passenger in
a Ford sedan stopped for speed-
ing on SR 121 south about noon
of May 15.
Leon Amerson, 29, of Mac-
clenny was arrested by Deputy
Hardin off Ben Rowe Circle dur-
ing the early morning hours of

'Positively' reading...


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Macclenny Elementary has
developed and adopted a com-
munity reading initiative called
PAWS-itively Reading as part of
its school-wide positive behavior
support program (PBS).
PAWS-itvely Reading is an
outgrowth of the PBS program
to help students develop pride in
their school and community.
On May 13, approximately 30
or so members of the community,
from sheriffs deputies and for-
mer teachers to Wildcat football
players, visited classrooms and
read books to students.
Macclenny Elementary's as-
sistant principal Denise Mann
explained the community lead-
ers' role as being more than just
showing up to read to the kids.
"The volunteers are versed
in the principles and purposes
of the positive behavior support
program," she said. "They dis-
cuss these points with the chil-
dren and the stories they read
promote these same ideas."
Ryan Sulkowski, the newly-
hired football coach at BCHS,
was one of the participants. He
brought along Wildcat team
members Darvin Ruise and
Thomas Sirk to Kim Sullivan's
third grade class.
The book he chose to read was
By My Brother's Side, written by
NFL players and brothers Tiki
and Ronde Barber.
The underlying theme of the
book is overcoming adversity by
determination and believing in
what you want to accomplish.
Afterwards, the students dis-
cussed these ideas at length with
Coach Sulkowski. The coach
closed the book and looked at the
class.
"This story is about adversity
because the character Tiki gets
hurt. Does anyone know what
that word means?" he asked.
The kids shook their heads
no.
"Adversity is another word for
a problem," he explained. "The
story is about how you react to


a problem. Tiki decided to do
something about his problem
rather than let it defeat him."
"It would scare me if I broke
myleg playing football," declared
one child.
"Not me!" said another.
"The important thing is, do
you just stay upset about it or do
you do something to make it bet-
ter?" he asked the kids.
The coach went on to give kids
another example about the right
attitude: a bad day at school. He
explained how you can control
how you feel about things hap-
pening around you. You can de-
cide to have a good day and turn
your bad thoughts around.
"Like, if you can't catch a ball,
you start thinking I can catch it,
I can catch it, right?" said Dylan
Ray.
"It makes me think of another
story, about the little engine that
always said 'I think I can,"' said
Hannah Teerlink.
One child, Isaac Henry, asked
a question and threw the coach a
curve ball.
"Why do they use roman nu-
merals for the Superbowl?"
Coach Sulkowski looked
stumped.
"Ah, you got me," he admit-
ted. "I'll have to Google it and get
back to you."

The Baker County Extension
Service is now accepting applica-
tions for master gardener volun-
teers.
It is a national program of
volunteers associated with the
extension service offices. Trained
Baker County volunteers help
"extend" unbiased, research-
based horticultural information
from the University of Florida
to people in our community who
need that information.
In Baker County, a master
gardener is expected to serve in
the following roles: assisting the
horticulture agent with exten-
sion programs, assisting with
yard visits to homeowners, an-
swering homeowner questions at
plant clinics, working with youth
during school enrichment pro-


grams, planting and maintaining
demonstration gardens, growing
a flower crop in the extension
greenhouse, working with youth
in the junior master gardener
program and working with Ex-
tension staff at the office.
This is a great opportunity for
anyone who enjoys gardening
and wants to volunteer for our
community. We will teach you
everything you ever wanted to
know about gardening and you
will pay us back by volunteering
in 2011.
Classes are held from 9:30
am to 3:30 pm each Wednesday
starting August 4 until mid-Oc-
tober. The cost for the training
and reference materials has been
reduced to $55.
Please refer to the recently
updated Baker County master
gardener application packet for
full program details and require-
ments. Applications will be ac-
cepted until July 16, although
applicants are encouraged to
submit early.
For an application packet,
visit our website at http://baker.
ifas.ufl.edu or stop by the Baker
County Extension Office (Agri-
cultural Center) located at 1025
W. Macclenny Ave (Hwy 90) in
Macclenny.

Cats getting makeover

More passing and creative runs


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
Football practice is hard.
It's hot, it's tiring, it's gruel-
ing.
But it gets a little easier when
you have something to point to-
ward. The Wildcats will line up
for their Red and White scrim-
mage at 6:00 pm at Memorial
Field May 21.
The game will be a glimpse of
Coach Ryan Sulkowski's 2010
Cats and it should be an enter-
taining look.
"It's going to be a fan-friendly
scrimmage," said Sulkowski. "It's
designed to give the community a
look at what they'll be seeing next
fall."
Sulkowski admits that there is
a long way to go. "It's still early
and we're still trying to decide
the right mix of kids. But they are
catching on to what we are trying
to do and they are buying into it,"
he said.
Though defensively the team


will look very similar to what
fans are used to seeing from the
Wildcats, Sulkowski is looking
for a more balanced offense and
fans can expect to see the ball in
the air a lot more than in previ-
ous years.
"We probably throw the ball
more in one practice than all last
season," Sulkowski laughed. "We
have some talented receivers
and guys who can get the ball to
them."
There will still be a healthy
running game, but it will have a
lot more looks than in previous
years.
"There are a lot of creative
ways to run the football," said the
coach.
Sulkowski is encouraged by
the number of players who have
come out for the team. There are
90-plus upperclassmen at prac-
tice and around 45 eighth grad-
ers. He expects some will drop off
due to "natural attrition," but still
hopes to field a good-sized squad


come fall.
In the three weeks since prac-
tice started the coaches have
begun to identify which play-
ers stand out, but it is still early
and there is a whole summer
ahead before major decisions are
made.
"We expect that a lot of posi-
tion battles won't be settled until
fall camp," said Sulkowski. "But
we know who's not afraid to hit
and who'll mix it up. But we're
still a long way away. We're going
to want to have our best 11 on the
field at all times and that's going
to take some time."
The Cats have so far avoided
any major injury problems beside
the natural knocks and nicks that
come from banging up against
one another in practice.
Fans can get a good glimpse
of what they have to look for-
ward to at the stadium on Friday.
Note that the game was originally
scheduled for Saturday.


Blue and white
The Baker County Middle
School Bobcat blue and white
spring football game will be May
27 at the practice field by the
track from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. Be
sure to bring refreshments and
lawn chairs.

Benefit softball game
The Macclenny Food Lion is
organizing a charity males versus
females softball game on July
17, with proceeds going to the
Children's Miracle Network and
Wolfson Children's Hospital in
Jacksonville.
The store is seeking sign-ups
now from teams and individu-
als. See Laura or Brittany at Food
Lion for more details.

Cleveland's sports 'voodoo'


FAT LADY
ROBERT GERARD
Is Cleveland cursed?
I think so.
I cannot think of a city with
multiple sports franchises that
has had worse luck than Cleve-
land. You've got LeBron James,
the most dominant player in the
NBA, and you can't even make it
to the NBA finals.
You've got the Indians, who
are three outs away from win-
ning the World Series and man-
age to blow it.
Then you have the Browns,
who are ... well ... the Browns.
When the only "name" player
on their roster is Carolina cast-
off Jake Delhomme you know
they're in trouble. I mean re-
ally, has anyone seen a Browns
game in the last 15 years? I think
they're just a rumor and they
don't really exist.
There's no other answer than
some kind of weird voodoo
curse.
Cleveland should have beaten
Boston in the NBA playoffs with
no problem. But inexplicably,
James stinks the place up in


game five and six, and despite
27 points from the big man, the
Celtics channel their champion-
ship team of two years ago and
beat the Cavaliers 94-85 to win
the series 4-2.
Voodoo. That's the only an-
swer. The whole sports estab-
lishment is under some bizarre
curse.
Just a heads up for you. It
might not help out for this week,
but it will for next. If you haven't
seen the Jacksonville Suns this
season you need to check them
out.
The Suns are absolutely red
hot.
They are leading the South-
ern League South Division by 5
games over Montgomery. Not
only that, but their 24-12 record
is the best in the league.
They are hitting the ball
well, they are fielding well and
they have dominant pitching. It
doesn't matter whether they are
at home or on the road, the Suns
are just playing well.
They are defending Southern
League champs, but in a league
with as much turnover as the
Southern League it is difficult to
go back-to-back.
Right now, the Suns have two
players in the top five in batting


in the league. Osvaldo Martinez
is hitting .366 and in second
place and Brandon Tripp is in
fifth place at .336.
They are third in the league
in pitching and when you put
the two together it adds up to a
dominant offense. The Suns will
be at home versus Chattanooga
for a five-game stand starting
May 26.

Miss Florida '07 hosts pageant


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Amanda Finley of Macclenny was crowned
Miss Baker County Forestry Queen at the first
Miss Baker County Forestry Pageant Scholar-
ship Preliminary May 8.
The 19-year-old dark-haired beauty was
awarded a $600 scholarship and will spend
the next year making public appearances and
speaking as an advocate for the forestry in-
dustry.
She will compete in the Miss Florida For-
estry State Scholarship Pageant July 17 at Fla-
gler College in St. Augustine.
This Baker County pageant was unique
because of the participation of two special
guests: Kylie Williams, Miss Florida 2007,
and Stephanie Bradley of Macclenny, who was
recently crowned Miss Teen Florida United
States 2010.
Ms. Williams was mistress of ceremonies
and also gave several singing performances
during the pageant, one of which included a
spirited demonstration of yodeling.
Ms. Bradley's role was to present awards to
the junior and teen miss division winners.
Pageant organizers Sydney and Vinnie Fer-
reira of Macclenny were acquainted with Ms.
Williams because of their extensive work as
pageant directors and judges. They decided it
would be a great boon to the first Miss Baker
County Forestry Pageant to have such an am-
bassador take part.
"We were luckyto have this remarkable and
beautiful girl come be a part of our inaugural
forestry pageant. I felt incredibly privileged to
have her here," said Mrs. Ferreira.
The former Ms. Florida shared with the
audience her passionate support of the ben-
efits that pageant competition can offer young
women in the development of poise, public
speaking skills, job interview skills, personal
grooming, self confidence and leadership
- all characteristics that help them excel in
every aspect of life.
Ms. Williams grew up in Jasper, Florida. At
age 15 the chance of her becoming a beauty
queen seemed unlikely. She was the victim of
a chemical explosion that left her face covered
in a mass of third degree burns. The damage
of the explosion completely separated the skin
of her forehead from her skull and it hung,
overlapping her eyes. She was rushed to the
emergency room for treatment and friends
and family gathered together to began a sus-
tained prayer vigil for her recovery.

ida 2007 (left) and Stephanie Bradley, 2010 Miss Teen Florida United States.


Amazingly, she did not have to undergo any
major plastic surgery for the damage to her
face. Bravely, she returned to school, know-
ing it would take time for the terrible bums to
heal. Cruel classmates called her "scarface."
She channeled her energy into her school
work and extracurricular activities and began
to excel. Kylie went on to graduate summa
cum laude from the University of North Flor-
ida. She won the title of Miss Tallahassee, go-
ing on to became Miss Florida in 2007.
In 2008, she competed in the Miss America
pageant, making it to the top 15 and dazzling
judges and the audience with her ability to
yodel.
"I was delighted to participate in the Miss
Baker County Forestry
Pageant. I'd love to
work with some of the
girls who won titles be-
cause I think they have
great potential to do
well in other competi-
tions," she said.
The winners in oth-
er pageant divisions
were: Baby Miss: Gra-
cie Townsend; Teeny


Miss: Jaycee Combs; Tiny Miss: Kayla Collins;
Little Miss: Macey Fox; Junior Miss: Harleigh
Johnson; Teen Miss: Hannah Shaffer.
Winners in the optional pageant categories
were: Prettiest Dress: Macey Fox and Bailey
Pisani; Best Personality: Jaycee Combs and
Bailey Pisani; Most Photogenic: Madalynn
Hodges and Bridget Higginbotham; Most
Poised: Jaycee Combs and Bailey Pisani.
The Outstanding Interview award went to
Faith Finley. Tara Lyn Thrift won Miss Hospi-
tality and the People's Choice Award.
Pageant judges included Ray Carver, Linda
Lake, Jinky Brown, Christine Jump, Barbara
Williams and Christina Beltz.
