Baker County deputies ar-

the morning of June 13 after be-
ing tipped off that a vehicle oc-
cupied by him and Ms. Combs
had become stuck on a tram
road about 200 yards east of
CR 228. The property is owned
by Gilman Paper and part of the
ongoing Dupont mining lease,
according to police.
Officers had been advised
by the tipster that Mr. Terrell
vowed he would not go back to
prison and that police would
have to kill him.
He was not armed when con-
fronted about 8:20, said Deputy
Shawn Bishara, and explained
that, while he knew he was tres-
passing, he was driving around
seeing what had changed in his
absence when he became stuck.
Ms. Combs claimed she was
asleep, and Investigator Brad
Dougherty stated later she ap-
peared to be high on drugs.

For over 35 years, nurturing the creative
abilities of students has been at the center of
Marilyn Harrell's life.
"Having leisure time to pursue my per-
sonal art endeavors and not being in a rush
is what I'm looking forward to," said Marilyn
Harrell, who retires this year after more than
three decades as a Baker County High School
art teacher.
She came to Baker Countyin 1975 as brand
new graduate of Murray State College in Ken-
tucky. BCHS was her first teaching job.
She never left.
An art teacher can go through a lot of paint
and paper, brushes and canvas in 35 years.
Ms. Harrell spent last week sorting through,
organizing and packing up her classroom.
The memories and efforts of the many stu-
dents who have passed through over the years
"This is very special," she said, pointing
to a small sculpture. "Doug Register, who is
now an administrator here, made this when
he was my student. He kept it all these years
and gave it back to me recently."
At her retirement party June 12, she dis-
played art by former students, many of whom
traveled in for the occasion from as far as Se-
attle, Washington.
She is very proud of former students who
have gone on to have successful careers as
photographers, graphic designers, art direc-
tors, architects and engineers.
For Ms. Harrell, the fact that her art classes
provided so many students the opportunity to
identify and develop those aptitudes early on
is a satisfying end to a wonderful career.
"Art is applied to all of life," she said.
'That's what I loved teaching to my students.
Everything around us, from a teacup to a desk
to an airport starts as an idea and goes to the

drawing board before being produced. Some-
body has to design it."
Her first day on the job at BCHS, she faced
a classroom void of art supplies.
'There wasn't anything there but some old,
very used paint palettes and a couple pair of
broken scissors," she said. "I went to Jerry

By February, the pa-
per was gone and she
had to hit up the prin-
cipal for more money.
Also, Tom Covington,
a former high school
coach who at the time
worked for the city,
located a lot of copy
paper that no longer fit
the copier, but was still
viable for sketching.
"I still use copy pa-
per to this day," said
Ms. Harrell. "It's rela-
tively cheap and the
size fits nicely into the
student's notebooks.
It's indispensable for
beginning drawing and
working up studies for
final projects."
Regarding the de-
velopment of her abil-
ity as an educator, she
gives a lot of credit to
two special women she
met early in her career
through the Florida
Art Educators Asso-
ciation. Nellie Lynch
and Flo Head were

own," said Ms. Harrell. "Those two women

Local government offices are
facing sizable revenue losses in
the 2010-11 budget year from
declining taxable property val-
ues and state funding reduc-
Property Appraiser Tim
Sweat estimated a 5-6 percent
decline in the 2010 overall tax
roll, which means about $50
million less than the roughly
$800 million in combined tax-
able value county-wide last
At current property tax, or
millage, rates, the county's loss
in revenue would be more than
$400,000, the school district's
more than $173,000 and the
hospital authority's more than
$61,000. The Cityof Macclenny,
facing a drop in taxable value of
about $17 million, would lose
approximately $61,000 as well.
Combined with taxes lost to
the two regional water manage-
ment districts encompassing
Baker County and cash for new
school construction, the drop in
property tax receipts could total
$1 million, provided tax rates
remain level.
Mr. Sweat stressed that the
drop in taxable value is based
on preliminary estimates that
don't account for other fac-
tors like new construction or
changes in the Consumer Price
He noted that final values are
due to the state by July 1.
Last year, the total loss in
taxable value paled in compari-
son at only $6 million. Howev-
er, taxable values also lag a year
behind market values, which
means last year's taxable value
was based on 2008 sales data.
Likewise, sales and other
market indicators from 2009
are being used for the 2010 tax
rolls. And while the real estate
market began its downturn in
2007, prices reached their low-
est in 2009 and have largely
remained there since.
Adding to the fiscal strain of
falling property tax revenues
are projected drops in funding
from the state.
The Florida Department of
Revenue's Office of Tax Research
released revised estimates June
14 for the state's county revenue
sharing program. They show
Baker County receiving about
$24,500 less than last year's
funding $402,742 which
was about $37,000 less than
2008 funding.
The projected revenue comes
from state sales and cigarette
taxes. Estimates for local sales,
gas and phone taxes are expect-
ed later this month. They can be
found at http://www.floridalcir.

duced grant funds for small

for much of the Friday morning.
The S. 6th Street entrance

of would-be customers, seeing
the barricades about noon, went
elsewhere. Others coming off
SR 121 into the drive-thru lanes

advising motorists not to block
the street with a reference to city
and state codes," stated the letter.
"A police officer will be stationed
on that road issuing tickets to
your customers when they block

that traffic from Barber Road

The company also has plans to
find a more permanent solution.
"[Mr. Masson] promised us
the temporary barrels would be

man said Friday. "But that's just
a temporary fix. They'll probably
put larger, more sturdy bollards
in the ground."
One driver passing by McDon-
ald's on Barber Road Friday af-
ternoon saw the city's barricades
and said, "It's about time."
Ms. Chapman said residents of
the road have been complaining
to the city about the drive-thru

The city's barricades were up
only about five hours.

In Loving Memory

Koby, a Fox Terrier weigh-
ing 1312 pounds, was
brutally killed on Monday,
June 7, 2010 by a 6o-pound
pit bull named Mary. The
pit bull attackedfrom the
rear, without any cause or
warning. The incident took
place at 571 Ivy Street, Mac-
clenny while Koby was on
a leash being walked. Mary
had no leash and dragged
Koby across the street,
through the large front yard
and into the house. He died
approximately 4:oo pm.

Robbery suspect

line following his release.
She said she reported her
boyfriend missing on June 7 and
didn't hear from him again until
June 13 when he called to say he
was in Middleburg at the home
of a friend identified as Jason
Woodcock. When she arrived at
a sister's residence near Sand-
erson, Mr. Terrell picked up her
and their daughter.
As a parolee, Mr. Terrell was
not allowed to leave Tennessee,
and when authorities there found
out from Investigator Dougherty
that he was here talking about
the robberies they contacted the
FBI and learned they occurred
about that time in the Nashville
suburbs of Brentwood and Hen-
dersonville, and near Huntsville,
It was during those robberies
that the photos were generated
showing a suspect who closely re-
sembles Mr. Terrell and wearing
the same shirt and hat he had on
when confronted on the Dupont
lease. He also has a matching
arm tattoo.
Investigator Dougherty
showed the photos to Ms. Combs,
and noted "[she] hung her head
and stated that it was definitely
The suspect's mother Inez Sul-
livan of Green Cove Springs "col-
lapsed to her knees and grabbed
her chest" when she looked at
the photos. Due to recent heart
surgery, she was checked out by
a rescue crew and cleared.
The investigator then showed
one of the photos to Mr. Terrell,
who after invoking his Miranda
rights nonetheless repeatedly
asked, "Where did you get that
picture from?"

Back in his jail cell shortly af-
ter, the suspect ripped apart his
shirt and attempted to flush it
down a toilet.
Investigator Dougherty said
early this week that federal au-
thorities in Nashville were plac-
ing a hold on Mr. Terrell to pre-
vent his release.
Detective Jamie Kiddy of Law-
rence County, TN said on Mon-
day that police there are working
on a possible link between Mr.
Terrell and a fourth bank job, this
one in that county.
"We don't have much on it as
of yet, but it occurred about the
same time he got out [of prison],"
said the investigator.
Investigator Dougherty said
Mr. Terrell's criminal record in
north Florida includes battery,
forgery and probation violation
in Clay County. His Tennessee
prison sentence was for aggra-
vated robbery in Green County,
and he reportedly also violated
an earlier parole.

county garbage programs from
$2.6 million to $2.4 million.
The modest reduction to Bak-
er County's grant will be roughly
$5000 from the $78,000 in fund-
ing received last year, according
to Chris Doolin, the county's Tal-
lahassee lobbyist.
Legislators did maintain some
funding streams despite closing a
multi-billion-dollar budget short-
fall during the 2010 session.
Mr. Doolin said money to off-
set the impacts of Amendment 1
property tax reforms approved
by voters in 2008 was increased
by legislators and two road im-
provement programs for small
counties retained funding at cur-
rent levels, about $31 million.
Over the last decade, Baker
County has used close to $11 mil-
lion from the Small County Out-
reach Program and Small County
Road Assistance Program to pave
dirt roads.
"We're very pleased with the
$31 million," said Mr. Doolin.
Much of the funding from Tal-
lahassee remains in flux, how-



ever; due to Governor Charlie
Crist vetoing some spending ap-
proved by the legislature, includ-
ing a $160 million sweep of the
state's transportation trust fund
to pay for education, and the yet
unknown economic impact from
the BP oil spill in the Gulf on
tourism and other industries.
"Revenue collections will cer-
tainly be less that what the state
had thought," Mr. Doolin said.
"It's highly likely we'll see some
budget adjusting."

McCollum's views

are commendable

Dear Editor:
As a voter and taxpayer in
Baker County, I would like to
thank Baker County School
Board members Patricia Weeks
and Dwight Crews for recogniz-
ing the outstanding job their fel-
low board member Karen McCol-
lum is doing.
As Mrs. Weeks pointed out
in a recent board meeting, Mrs.
McCollum is using the knowl-
edge she gained in her private
business insurance and invest-
ments to raise questions about
the employee health care pro-
gram that was offered to the dis-
trict. In doing so, Mrs. McCollum
addressed many issues about the
way the program was handled,
with a specific emphasis on the
cost and benefits.
At the same board meeting,
Chairman Crews alluded to the
fact that policies and other busi-
ness that come before the board
are sometimes far beyond his
knowledge and understanding.
He said he relies on information
from staff members and/or con-
tractors to make decisions.
As Mrs. McCollum stated in a
recent newspaper article, it does
appear that board members just
"rubber stamp" matters that
come before them.
It sounds like Mrs. McCollum
and Mr. Crews are saying the
same thing.
We elect people to these posi-
tions with the expectation that

all board members will use their
personal knowledge and educa-
tion to make informed decisions.
It sounds like Mrs. McCollum is
the only one on the board living
up to that expectation.
During the most recent meet-
ing the board discussed, in great
detail, the issue of bullying. They
talked about training teachers to
deal with students, and putting
programs in place to prevent bul-
Imagine my surprise when,
near the end of the meeting, Mrs.
Weeks and Mr. Crews "bullied"
a fellow board member for dar-
ing to express her thoughts and
opinions. Mrs. Weeks even stated
that, "a little bit of knowledge is
I thought that as a member
of the board of education in our
community Mrs. Weeks would be
an advocate for knowledge. It is
a sad day when board members
have been in office so long that
they become out of touch with
what their actual purpose is in
the district, and they do things
that contradict their purpose
in an attempt to maintain their
comfortable position of "business
as usual."
Mrs. McCollum's recent state-
ments have long needed to be
said. It is about time the commu-
nity start demanding more from
other board members.

Look close to home for

next county manager

Dear Editor:
This letter is a response to an article in The Press several weeks ago
indicating two of our county commissioners seem to think we need to
look outside Baker County to fill the position of county manager.
This position has a yearly salary of $70,ooo-$90,00ooo. My ques-
tion to these commissioners is why would you want to look outside the
county to fill this type of position when there are numerous citizens
here more than qualified to fill it?
Why not keep the money here in Baker County so it could be spent
here instead of Duval, Clay, St. Johns or Columbia counties?
When these commissioners took their elected positions, did they
look outside the county for votes? No, the people of Baker County re-
spected them enough to elect them. Now, they need to show the citizens
the same respect and keep the money here.
I ask everyone who reads this letter to contact their county commis-
sioner and voice their opinion. Remind them that we are the reason
they have their positions and we demand respect for our county.
Hire within.
I am not a member of the local Tea Party, but I am a charter member
of the local Coffee Sippers.

Fans debate merits of 'football'

M Y SIC Not everyone is as excited about the World Cup as I am. There are plenty of people in the United States
VY SIDE OF who think soccer really isn't an American sport. It's a sport that is played by millions of people, but because
T M AR of its lack of scoring it hasn't caught on with the nation. So I thought I'd get my friend Denny Courson, who
THE M1 AT1TE is heard on 1010 XL in his radio show Gators and More, to join me in a point/counterpoint about the world's
ROBERT GERARD favorite game.

No, I really hate soccer
Denny Corson: "Why do you hate soccer?" I get
asked that question quite often when I go on one of
my anti-soccer rants. Most people think I am embel-
lishing when I start to talk about how I think youth
soccer is making us into a nation of wimps. I am not.
When I get started on how that guy yelling "GOAL-
LLLL" annoys me to no end, most people think I am
kidding. People never take my hatred for soccer seri-
ously. So, when I was asked to write this article about
why I hate soccer I figured I would give you my"Top
five reasons for hating soccer" in an effort to show
people just how serious I am.
VThey count backwards in soccer.The clock starts
at zero and goes up to 45 minutes. It's too confusing Denny Courson
to keep track of how much time is left. We Americans
like to have the score displayed on the scoreboard and the time remaining
in a period to be counted down. Math in sports is better left for things like
deciding when to go for a two point conversion or an on-side kick.
V Soccer players are not tough.These guys run around a field for 90 min-
utes kicking a ball, but there is no real contact. In fact, you get penalized for
touching someone in soccer.Thetruth is there is more violence in the stands
than on the field at most soccer matches. How they can call this sport"foot-
ball"everywhere but America is beyond my understanding.
American football players are beasts who physically battle each other for
four quarters. Soccer players run around avoiding each other for 90 minutes
and maybe there's a winner when they're done.The best soccer player would
be nothing more than a kicker in the real sport of America football.
VThere are no cheerleaders. I don'need to expound on this one.
V How can you take a sport seriously when there are no winners if the
score is tied at the end of regulation play? Most soccer moms will say that
soccer is the perfect sport because"no one has to lose." I say that is baloney.
There has to be a winner. Look at the USA vs. England match over the week-
end ending in a tie. Arguably the biggest match in decades for the United
States and no one gets to win. Vince Lombardi said it best:"If it doesn't mat-
ter who wins or loses, why bother to keep score?" Man up and play until
someone wins.
The fact that soccer belongs to the rest of the world is another reason I
don't care for it. Why is it so adored around the world? To quote the come-
dian Daniel Tosh:"lf you lived in a mud hut swatting flies all day, the idea of
running around a grass field and kicking a ball would sound like the greatest
pastime in the world to you, too.'
Let's face it, if America wanted to we could dedicate our athletic resources
to becoming the best in the world in soccer, but it just isn't that important to
us to dominate yet another sport. We have baseball, basketball, "real"foot-
ball, and even hockey to keep us entertained. Why do we need to take away
the pride of all of those third world nations? We let them have soccer so they
can believe they are better than America at something.
It is our gift to them.

There's so much to love
Bob Gerard: Denny, I love soccer for many of the
reasons you hate it. Far from being an un-American
sport, soccer is the most democratic sport in the
world. Anyone can play it and enjoy it. Boy, girl, man
or woman all you need is a ball. In fact, you don't
even need a ball. In some parts of the world kids play
Sit with a tightly wound bundle of rags and play it with
jaw-dropping skill.
V There's no need for fancy equipment. A football
player wears so many pads and so much armor that
he's unrecognizable except for the number on his
back. Put him on a horse and he resembles a mounted
knight more than a sportsman. You could hit a foot-
Bob Gerard ball player with a tree limb and not hurt him, so don't
talk to me about tough.
V I love soccer because something is always happening. Football fans say
there's no action, but if you watch the game there's always action. From the
first whistle to the end, the game is always moving it only stops for fouls.
If you want soccer to look more like football, have the players run around for
15-20 seconds and then stand in a circle for 45 seconds doing nothing.Then
stop every little while for 10 minutes of beer commercials.
V Soccer fans make football fans look normal.Take the most rabid Raider
fan and put him up against soccer fans and he'll whither. I went to a game
in Buenos Aires where the fans on one end of the stadium jumped up and
down and sang for 90 minutes.They never stopped.
When Guatemala lost to El Salvador in a controversial World Cup qualifier
in the 50s the countries went to war for two weeks before the UN stopped
it. I can't see Gainesville going to war with Tallahassee no matter how much
they hate the result of a game.
V Soccer haters decry the lack of scoring, but that is the whole point. It's
hard to score, and when you do score it's a big deal. Joe Posnanski said in
Sports Illustrated that"a goal at the highest level is a miracle. It takes magic."
We have all watched football games where we knew that every time one
team or the other got the ball they were going to score. Where's the drama
in that? In the English FACup I've seen the world's biggest team, Manchester
United, crash out to a team of nobodies from the town of Wycombe, which
is about the size of Palatka.
V And even when there is no score it can be incredibly exciting. I watched
a 0-0 tie between Uruguay and France that was as tightly contested and nail-
biting as any 48-45 game between Boise State and BYU.
VYou're right, ties are frustrating but in championship games there are no
ties and that can be even more frustrating, and fascinating. For 90 minutes
soccer is the most team sport of all games and if it ends tied it goes to a 30
minute overtime. But then, if still tied, chaos ensues. A player with the ball
against a goalkeeper 15 yards away staring each other down with noth-
ing in between them except grass and air and the hopes of millions of fans.
Nothing in football can match it for sheer intensity.
V Hey, 2.6 billion World Cup viewers can't be wrong.

"The bad thing is, it's only June. Our

outrageous power bill."

"Are y'all FPL or Clay Electric? Call for a

adjust your bill to reflect the error. If it's
right,ask them to check to see ifyou have a
short of some kind in your electrical wiring.
They're pretty good about doing that. Well,
at least they were when I worked at FPL.
Things may have undoubtedly changed
since then. I'm on Clay Electric now and
they have actually misread my meter be-
fore ... Thank God, it was an error and they

fixed it"

Schools retrofitted for hurricanes Noerits fortrailers
r~canesNo permits for trailers

Hurricane shutters are being
installed at a number of schools
buildings in the county, and just
in time for the 2010 hurricane
The roughly $200,000 grant-
funded effort will add shutters
capable of withstanding hurri-
cane-force winds on a handful of
school district buildings at Keller
Intermediate, the Alternative
School nearby, and the middle
and high schools.
Six days after the official start
of the season, a task force special-
izing in emergency preparedness
projects like the shutter improve-
ments held its quarterly meeting
June 7.
Emergency management di-
rector Adam Faircloth attended
the annual Governor's Hurricane
Conference in Fort Lauderdale
in late May where predictions
about the severity of the impend-
ing storm season usually vary
"Not this year," he said dur-
ing the task force's mid-morning
gathering. "All the predictions
show an active season of 15 to
18 storms with three to four be-
ing high intensity category 3, 4
or 5 storms ... The question is

whether or not they make landfill
and where they make landfall."
In the coming years, Mr.
Faircloth said he hopes to pur-
sue grants to expand the shutter
retrofits to Fraser Memorial and
its clinic. It's one of two facilities
in the county with a generator
strong enough to simultaneously
power electricity and air condi-
The other is at Macclenny El-
ementary, which has been fitted
with hurricane shutters but can-
not support people with special
medical needs.
Space at Fraser could become
a problem during a large-scale
disaster as well.
Mr. Faircloth said the Fraser
clinic could hold 50 to 60 people,
but there's twice that many on a
special needs list maintained by
emergency management.
During a large-scale disaster
with many injuries, much of the
hospital's shelter capacity could
be eliminated, noted David Rich-
ardson, who heads emergency
medical services for the county.
"We need a special needs
shelter," he said, suggesting that
Northeast Florida State Hos-
pital could serve that role. "We
have not faced a disaster on any
large scale, but we need a plan in

Art teacher retiring

( always freely shared their own
wonderful lesson plans with me.
Later, I got to participate on a
curriculum writing committee
with them."
Hosting the annual student
art exhibition in May has always
been a special way to wrap up the
school year and cap off the work
and enthusiasm of her student's
imaginations and efforts.
Before the annual exhibition
was established, Ms. Harrell
made an effort to involve her stu-
dents in an arts consortium event
sponsored by Lake City Commu-
nity College. The consortium was
a professionallyjudged event and
she traveled with her students on
a school bus to Lake City to at-
tend the event. When they got
there they discovered that Baker
County High School art students
had received 13 awards.
"When we came back to the
school I had the bus pull right up
to the principal's office," said Ms.
Harrell. "I jumped out and went
in, waving the 13 blue ribbons
and saying, 'Look! Look what we
The awards have been steady.
For the last 10 years the work of

Baker County students has often
been chosen for inclusion in the
Congressional Art Competition
sponsored by Florida Congress-
man Ander Crenshaw.
The grand winner of the 2010
Congressional Art Competition
held in May was Nichole Berry,
a Baker County art student. Ms.
Harrell was thrilled at Nichole's
accomplishment, and not entire-
ly surprised; she has long recog-
nized and nurtured this student's
enormous talent.
"What a great way to end my
career," she said.
But the brightest stars during
Ms. Harrell's last two years at the
high school were two former stu-
dents who joinrf school system
as art educators. Kari Rhoden is
teaching at Keller Intermediate
and Tiffany Armoreda, came on
board as a member of the high
school's art faculty.
"When Tiffany was my stu-
dent, I loved her spontaneity
and free style of painting. She
has inspired me to push beyond
the boundaries in my own work,
which I love," said Ms. Harrell.
"It's no small thing to have her
here. I know I'm leaving things in
very capable hands."

The county's Code Enforce-
ment Board heard two cases
the evening of June 14 in which
property owners failed to obtain
permits for mobile homes and
gave them specific windows to do
so or face fines.
Phillip Lane's 6.6-acre Sand-
erson property at 15222 Jack
Dowling Circle has two residenc-
es, one on the road and another
placed at the rear in violation of
zoning rules permitting only one
unit per 7.5 acres.
That latter trailer, installed
sometime in 2007 or 2008 was
never permitted.
Despite notification of the vio-
lations in April by certified mail,
Mr. Lane did not appear before
the code board, which gave him
10 days to remove the mobile
home or face a $75 fine plus
$15 per day until the property is
brought into compliance, for a
maximum of 180 days.
Another mobile home was
placed at James Barton's 1-acre
property at 8151 Myrtis Barton
Lane southwest of Macclenny off
Woodlawn Road without a per-
mit roughly eight months ago.
The county's building depart-
ment placed a stop work order at
the site March 30.
Building department director
Bob Hathcox, who also serves as
the county's code enforcement
officer, said only a licensed mo-
bile installer can obtain a permit

from the county and that repairs
will likely be needed to correct
existing building code violations
linked to previous installation
A mobile home permit is about
$140, though the county can
double the fee since Mr. Barton
failed to obtain the permit before
the trailer was placed.
Mr. Barton's nephew, Chris
Barton, appeared before the
board, saying he occasionally
lives in the trailer and his wife's
expecting a child any day. Due to
financial hardships, he said he
would need 30 to 60 days to hire
an installer to permit the trailer.
Board members provided a
60-day window for the property
to be brought into compliance
before fines begin for James Bar-
ton, the property owner.
The potential penalties mir-
rored the previous case at $75
plus $15 per day until the prop-
erty is in compliance, for a maxi-
mum of 180 days.
Both property owners were as-
sessed an $85 administrative fee
too. The fee is standard to help
recover code enforcement costs
incurred by the county.
A third case, in which property
owner Sheldon Crawford failed
to obtain a building permit for
a garage addition at 10893 Mud
Lake Road, did so the day of the
code board's meeting.
He was spared the $85 admin-
istrative fee, at the recommenda-
tion of Mr. Hathcox, due to Mr.
Crawford's financial hardship.

Brawls break out in

west Macclenny, 13

accused of violence
Thirteen persons were either arrested or named in criminal com-
plaints for involvement in an outbreak of street fighting in the south-
west Macclenny neighborhood over a two-day period last week.
When sheriffs deputies converged on a disturbance involving an es-
timated 60 persons about 9:40 the evening of June 8, it was the fourth
time they were called to the neighborhood that day.
Deputy Matthew Sigers said this time the crowd had gathered near
the entrance of Keller Intermediate School, and police were advised of
gunshots heard in the vicinity.
Deputy Michael Hauge used a taser pistol on Michael Washington
Sr., 37, of Macclenny when the suspect refused to release his wife Tara,
who was being detained by Deputy Matt Sigers. The second deputy
said he was struck in the throat by Mr. Washington's elbow during a
scuffle, and that he used the taser charge after unsuccessful attempts
to restrain him.
Deputy Hauge also handcuffed Michael Washington Jr., 18, of Mac-
clenny, when he rushed in to assist his father and acted aggressively
when told to step back. The younger Mr. Washington had several facial
injuries he said were inflicted when kicked in the face by Francis Jack-
son, 40, of Macclenny.
She was arrested for felony battery; the elder Mr. Washington for
battery of an officer and his son was named in a criminal complaint for
a similar charge and released because of injuries to his eye and nose.
Others either arrested or named in complaints for disorderly con-
duct and fighting include Rodney Braziel, 18, Eddie Fields, 36, Latoya
Smith, 20, all of Macclenny; and Devon Moore, 20, of Jacksonville.
In other fights in that neighborhood:
Michael Daniel, 18, of Jacksonville, Joseph Johnson, 30, of Bald-
win and Terry Smith, 19, of Glen St. Mary were arrested by Deputy
Kevin Jenkins for disorderly conduct following a fight earlier the same
evening. It was at the corner of Minnesota and MLK and also drew a
large crowd.
A criminal complaint for felony battery named Phillip Givens, 25,
of Glen as the person who struck Joseph Reed, 21, of Macclenny at the
same location the evening of June 9.
The report by Deputy Daniel Nichols notes the assailant may have
had a heavy object wrapped by a bandage on his fist when he struck Mr.
Reed, who was treated at Fraser Hospital.

school two decades ago appears
to have cut corners by not finish-

Denny Wells, the district's
facilities director, said he wasn't
sure about the identity of the
original contractor or the total
costs associated with fixing the
shoddy work. However, accord-
ing to the February 25, 1988
edition of The Press, the roughly
$10.9 million BCHS construction
project was awarded to T.H. Tay-
lor Inc. of Montgomery, Ala.
Mr. Wells informed the school
board about problems during
a workshop the afternoon of

June 7. He wanted to prepare
the board for two change orders
on the HVAC project that could
be forthcoming later this month
- one for roughly $5200 to com-
plete walls that weren't built all
the way to the roof of building 7,
and another for a yet unknown
amount to correct the power
cable problem at building 8.
"We have no idea why it was
done this way," said Mr. Wells in
reference to the unfinished walls,
none of which affect the struc-
tural integrity of the buildings.
Leaving them unfinished,
though, would make the new
HVAC systems less efficient and
could cause moisture problems
in the ceilings, he said.
The district could bid out com-
pletion of the walls or instruct
Little & Williams to move ahead
with the work using a change or-
Bill Bishop, the district's ar-
chitect, recommended a change
order because bidding could de-
laythe project bytwo months and
possibly lead to conflicts between
contractors working at the same
site at the same time. He also said

Armed driver didn't stop

A Sanderson man was jailed
late on June 7 after a county dep-
uty found a loaded pistol on the
front floorboard of his car.
Deputy Matt Sigers said he
got behind a 2000 Volvo driven
by Roosevelt Paige, 49, after
it rolled past a stop sign at CR
229 and Friendship place just
after 11:00. Mr. Paige continued
northbound on 229 to his resi-
dence and parked the vehicle in a
garage after failing to stop on the
road when the deputy turned on
lights and siren.
The officer found a loaded
.357 magnum revolver on the
driver side floor. He also charged
Mr. Paige with reckless driving,
failure to stop and not wearing a
seat belt.

Mr. Bishop explained that the
"big cable" of several hundred
feet was found disconnected be-
hind a panel in violation of build-
ing codes.
He said it could be that a mal-
functioning cable that was con-
nected to pass inspection, but
later disconnected so it wouldn't
cause an electrical short.
He suggested having the cable
tested to determine if it works. If
it does, the cable could simply be
reconnected, but if not, it would
need replacement.
"At this point, it's an un-
known," he told the board of the
potential replacement cost.

ing is June 21 at 6:30 pm in its
board room on South Boulevard

Warrant is sought in stabbing

Sanderson girlfriend denies domestic attack

Page 6

A warrant for aggravated bat-
tery was to be sought early this
week for a Sanderson woman
who allegedly stabbed her live-in
boyfriend during an argument
early on June 12 at their resi-
dence off Jefferson Circle.
Machel Givens, 44, stabbed
Keith Jefferson, 53, in the upper
right chest with a pocket knife
that she retrieved from a back
bedroom after he ordered her to
leave the residence, the victim
told police later.
The wound was sufficient to
send Mr. Jefferson to Shands
Jacksonville, where he was treat-
ed and released the same day
in time to call police back to the
neighborhood north of Sander-
son when Ms. Givens returned.
In a subsequent interview with
Deputy Daniel Nichols, Ms. Giv-
ens denied the allegation and in-
sisted the boyfriend came at her
with a knife and inflicted a small
scratch on her left forearm. She
then said she turned the knife
around in Mr. Jefferson's hand
and stabbed him in self-defense.
The victim was re-interviewed
and insisted his earlier account
to Deputy Brandon Kiser was the
accurate version of events that
morning just after 3:00 when he
was stabbed.
In other incidents involving
domestic violence:
Joseph York was arrested
for battery of Georgina Tillman,

29, of Sanderson during an argu-
ment in their van off God's Acre
Lane near Taylor about noon on
June 7.
The argument apparently
started after one of several chil-
dren with the couple spilled a
fruit drink in the vehicle, an-
gering Ms. Tillman, who then
doused the children and Mr. York
with water.
He allegedly caused a head
laceration when he pulled her
hair and restrained her by forc-
ing her against a car door.
John Yeomans, 48, of Mac-
clenny was named in a complaint
for domestic battery for allegedly
attacking his estranged girlfriend
Paula Rosier, 39, the evening of
June 13.
Ms. Rosier told Deputy Matt
Sigers she met her ex-boyfriend
at a residence off Washington
St. about 6:00 for a property ex-
change. Mr. Yeomans is accused
of forcibly removing a ring from
her finger and slapping her.
Interviewed later, Mr. Yeo-
mans denied the girlfriend's ver-
sion of events, saying only that
they met and she delivered the
A Macclenny motorist was

Pawns stolen goods

A Macclenny man who had
been working at a residence off
Crews Rd. on June 7 has been
charged with the theft of a fin-
ish nailer and woman's ring that
were later pawned.
John Hart, 22, was arrested
two days later for grand theft and
dealing in stolen property. He is
accused of taking a woman's ring
valued at $606 and the nailer
worth $180 from the residence
of Jeffery Taylor.
Investigator Steve Harvey
of the sheriff's department said
the suspect arranged to have the
items brought to Baker Gun and
Gold Pawn in Macclenny on June
7. Mr. Hart said he paid Fredrick
Yokum Jr. $5 to pawn the items,
which were later recovered and
returned to Mr. Taylor.
The victim told Investigator
Harvey he suspected Mr. Hart
because he had been at the ad-
dress, and the accused initially
denied knowledge of the thefts.
In other recent theft cases:
A central air conditioning
unit was taken and interior wir-
ing stripped from the walls of an
unoccupied house off B.F. Finley
Circle near Olustee between May
26 and June 9.
A representative of Citi Mort-
gage who regularly checks on the
residence estimated damage and
loss at the house at $4000. He
told police the premises has been
empty for some time.
Mary Wilson reported a .22
caliber pistol was taken from

the bedroom of her residence off
Robin Lane near Glen St. Mary
sometime during a month-long
period ending June 4.
She named a relative as a po-
tential suspect.

ued at $900 were taken from a
parked pickup truck at the resi-
dence offJody McDowell on Pine

Teacher Tara Rhoden gave
permission for her sixth grade
students to receive a visit from
Nero, a large macaw.
When Nero came for his very
first visit to the middle school, he
arrived swaddled in a towel, car-
ried by Ms. Simmons' mother,
Carmie McInarnay.
Nero didn't seem to mind
being bundled up. In fact, he
seemed to like it. The big bird
looked content and seemed
happy to snuggle like a baby in a
In the classroom, off came the
towel, to the delight of the stu-
dents, many of whom had never
seen a live macaw.
Ms. McInarnay told students
about the bird who sat perched on
an inch-wide section of tree limb.
Ms. Simmons slowly walked him
up and down between the rows of
desks so that students could get

a close look. The macaw's plum-
age was brilliant blue, green and
yellow and his zebra-like leath-
ery eye patches were black and
Although Nero was on his best

that can equal 300 pounds of
pressure," Ms. Simmons added.
The students were quiet and

Nero is 13 years old, relatively
young for a macaw. Students
learned that in the wild, macaws
live very long lives, typically
about 50 years.
They can make rewarding pets

The birds can be very entertain-

Nero had another owner pre-
viously, but has adjusted well to
his new home.
"It took about a month before
he really warmed up to us and
trusted us. Now he's a regular
member of our family," said
Mrs. McInarnay. "When he says
goodbye to one of us as we leave

the house, he even imitates that
person's voice."
He patiently tolerates the oth-
er household pets which include a
bulldog. Since he stays in his cage
at night, Nero is allowed to crawl
around on the outside of his cage
during the day for exercise.
Ms. Simmons said he seldom
leaves it, but occasionally when
the dogs are present he causes a

Market expands entertainment
Vendor participation is
growing at the Baker Coun-
ty Farmer's Market and so
are the entertainment offer-

vendor booths, the market
featured 14 booths June 5
and 12 the following week.

Deputy Kevin Jenkins said he
approached Rodrick Roberts, 23,
in a crowd of males congregated
about 11:oo pm on June 11 at
Grissholm and South Boulevard,
and the suspect jumped a nearby
fence and ran. He was arrested
trying to enter his nearby resi-
dence on South Boulevard.
The deputy said he was patrol-
ling the area that night because of
a recent outbreak of fighting that
resulted in several other arrests
and some injuries.

He also charged Mr. Roberts
with resisting arrest without
violence, loitering and having a
small amount of marijuana that
he allegedly tossed to the ground
while fleeing.
Police both on patrol and at
county jail arrested several oth-

"He loves peanuts, fruit, broc-

Church welcomes new pastor

Sanderson Christian Revival Center welcomes new pastor, Rev. Har-
old Finley. Bro. Harold was born in Glen St. Mary and is the son of Pau-
line and the late Jeff Finley. He is the fourth son in a family of six. Bro.
Harold was raised and attended school in Union County. At the age of
18 he met and married to Dorothy (Debbie) Bennett of Baker County.
The couple has been married 44 years and have three children, Deborah
(Bryan) Johnson, Robin (Raymond) Craven and Kevin (Nickie) Finley.
They have four grandchildren Jordan, Marshal and Abigail Craven and
Kayleigh Johnson.
Bro. Harold was approached with the position after a chance meeting
with childhood friend and classmate Marvin Griffis who was told by an-
other Union County resident that Bro. Harold was a minister. The meet-
ing proved to be a joyous one and nothing short of the hand of God at
work. It was with much prayer and feeling led by God that Pastor Finley
accepted the position.
Bro. Harold has been a minister for 31 years and has worked in vari-
ous areas of the ministry. He held the office of Associate Pastor and pas-
tored churches in Union and Bradford counties. He was temporary pastor
at Pine Level Church in Baker County for Bro. Buster Williams. He also
worked the evangelistic field in tent ministry with the late Rev. Curtis
Rice of Live Oak.
All three of Pastor Finley's children are musicians along with his
grandson, Jordan, who will be lead guitarist and all will be working with
him in the ministry.
Pastor Finley, Sis. Dorothy and his family look forward to working for
God and worshipping with their new church family.
They wish to extend an invitation to anyone looking for a home church
or a place to worship where the Spirit of God is moving. Please feel free
to visit our church on South CR 229 in Sanderson.

Group sheds more than 140 pounds
The YMCA's first group of participants in the Ready Sweat Go! weight loss program collectively lost 140.9 pounds, 192.75
inches, 21.1 percent body fat and 22.8 percent in body mass index [BMI]. Pictured above are some in the eight-member
group with program trainers during a party the evening of June 12 in Macclenny to celebrate finishing the program.
From left are Erin Raulerson, Ann Blum, Michelle Reimer, Jo Hilson, nutritionist and yoga instructor Marcy Knight, Tyler
Tompkins, Andy Johnston, trainer and program organizer Kassandra Scherer and Crystal Wallar. Not pictured but in the
program is Cecil Rhoden. Mr. Tompkins and Ms. Blum won the titles for male and female body transformation, losing
25.67 percent and 25.91 percent, respectively, in a combined measurement of pounds, inches, body fat and BMI lost.
Participants were also asked to solicit donations for each pound they lost to benefit the YMCA's Strong Kids campaign,
which provides scholarships for YMCA youth programs to low-income families. Mr. Johnston raised the most ($3645) and
received three months of free membership.

What's all

that buzz?


That's the sound of 42,000
vuvazelas going full blast. In case
you are among the uninformed,
or haven't tuned in a single
World Cup game, you may not
have experienced the sound of
the vuvazela.
The vuvazela is a uniquely
South African horn they play at
all soccer games. Imagine mil-
lions of angry bees or worse, bil-
lions of mosquitoes all buzzing in
one place and you have a sense of
the vuvazela.
If you watched the USA battle
England you heard them. They
are irritating to the extreme and
they never stop. As bad as it is in
my living room, it is even worse
on the field.
Patrice Evra, the French mid-
fielder, blamed the horns for his
team's o-o draw with Uruguay.
Evra said that on free kicks, the
team could not hear what Franc
Ribery, who was shooting the
ball, was trying to tell them.
It was evident in the USA-Eng-
land game. US goalkeeper Tim
Howard would have to scream at
the top of his lungs to the play-
ers in front of him in order to be
Soccer games are normally
louder than football, baseball and
basketball. While fans normally
cheer when something happens,
the rest of the time there is just a
dull buzz of chatter.
Not in soccer. Unofficial
bands, like the USA's Sam's
Army, play songs in the stands,
people sing and chant through
the whole game.
That is still going on in the
stands, you just can't hear it
above the drone of vuvazelas. I
occasionally caught the sound
of the England Band, the rag-
tag bunch that bring their band
instruments to all the England
games and the big drums of
Sam's Army, but I really had to
strain to hear them.
At first the vuvazelas were
quaint, now they're just annoy-
ing. FIFA, soccer's governing
body, is trying to weigh offend-
ing the locals by banning them
and the possibility that they are
affecting the game.
Hey, if they upset England
goalkeeper Robert Green enough
to make him bobble the ball and
allow it to squirt into the net for
the USA's vital tying goal I love
The USA played England to a
draw last week and kept them-
selves in contention to move out
of the group to the quarterfinals.
They will have to beat either
Slovenia or Algeria (or both) to
It was an heroic effort and if
you missed it you missed a great
game. The 1-1 score sounds as if
thing was happening every sec-
If you're not used to soccer,
tune in. Watch a few games and
you'll see what 2.6 billion viewers
worldwide already know that
soccer is an exciting and addict-
ing sport.
