Invasion robber caught Monday


Friend aids Lake City police


A multi-county manhunt ended early Monday
in Lake City with the arrest of a Sanderson man for
two home invasion robberies in neighborhoods off
CR 127 north of Sanderson the afternoon of July
17.
In the second incident, he is accused of savagely
beating an elderly couple and tying them up with
TV cable cord.
Ryan Wayne Phillips, 25, surrendered without
incident at the McDonalds restaurant near Inter-
state 75 when confronted about 12:35 am by Co-
lumbia County authorities who had been tipped off
on his whereabouts.
He was returned to Macclenny about midday
and booked on multiple felony charges. Mr. Phil-
lips, who is also a convicted sex offender, made
a first appearance on Tuesday and is being held
without bond.
Charges against him include two counts of home
invasion robbery, battery on elderly persons, kid-
naping or unlawful imprisonment and failure to
register as a sex offender.
Sheriffs deputies began looking for him shortly
after the robberies took place within an hour and
a half of each other. Ironically, a deputy sought
him earlier that day after police learned he had not
registered an address change as required when he
moved from his grandparents' residence off CR
229 on July to.
Mr. Phillips was positively identified by two fe-
male victims via a photo lineup late Saturday after-


noon. Police also obtained a description of the 1999
Ford Ranger he was in when he was seen speeding
away from one of the robbery locations.
Deputies were called to the first scene at 2:37
pm, shortly after the suspect allegedly forced his
way into the home of 90-year-old Rhoda Barber on
Leon Dopson Rd.
He overpowered Ms. Barber's daughter Regina
Williamson, 58, who was visiting from Valdosta
and demanded money, threatening to cut her, her
9-year-old niece and her mother with a knife if they
did not cooperate.
None of them ever saw a knife, however.
Ms. Williamson said her assailant placed her in
a headlock and dragged her back to a room where
her mother was located before he used the same
technique to bring her back to the front of the
house where she gave him her wallet.
Neither the niece nor her mother were
harmed, and Ms. Williamson bore bruises
and marks from the headlock.
She called police after Mr. Phillips drove
east in the pickup that he had parked in the
driveway.
Ms. Williamson said the suspect first ap-
peared at the front door asking "Is this the
Douberly place or do you know where it is?"
and returned 15-20 minutes later wanting to
know "Is this Williams Rd." before barging
in.

Once again the Baker County
Commission is facing a budget
deficit that tops one million
dollars, due largely to the costs
for housing local inmates at the
newjail north of Macclenny.
County Manager Joe Cone
and Finance Manager Debbie
Perryman presented that infor-
mation to the board during dur-
ing its first budget workshop of
the year the afternoon of July
19, along with a draft 2010-11
budget that's $1.6 million out of
balance.
The county has until Septem-
ber 31 to adopt a budget for the
fiscal year beginning October 1
and an associated property tax,
or millage, rate. However, Ms.
Perryman said the tax collec-

'Eerily' similar fatality on US 90


.,.r

This PT Cruiser was demolished by a broadside collision as it pulled in front of a westbound pickup and cattle trailer at dangerous intersection off 1-10.


For the second time in just
over one year, an out-of-state
motorist died while exiting In-
terstate 10 onto US 90 west of
Sanderson.
The intersection onto a four-
lane stretch of US 90 from the
eastbound lane of the inter-
state has long been considered
treacherous both because of
limited vision and a confusing
configuration particularly to
drivers who exit to the nearby
Citgo station.
In other eerily similar coinci-
dences, the driver who lost his
life the afternoon of July 14 was
struck broadside by a pickup

truck towing a cattle trailer,
and both of them were driven
by men from Glen St. Mary.
Last week's victim was iden-
tified as Paul R. Bergmann, 57,
of Grinnell, Iowa. He was alone
in his 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser
and wearing a seat belt.
Trooper A. Cummings of the
Florida Highway Patrol said
Mr. Bertmann appears to have
stopped at the end of the exit
ramp, then pulled into the path
of a westbound 1997 Ford F250
driven by Willie B. Wynn, 60, of
Glen. He received minor inju-
ries and was also restrained by
a seat belt.


The Cruiser was demolished
by the impact and pushed into
the ditch off the westbound lane.
The truck and trailer crossed US
90 after the crash and stopped
on the south shoulder of US 90
just west of the interchange.
The accident happened at
4:30 pm and Mr. Bergmann
was the sixth person to die on
Baker County roads in 2010.
It marked the second fatal
accident in the same vicinity
of the west county in less than
one week. The morning of July
11, a head-on crash on US 90
just west of there took the life
of a 15-year-old Lake City youth


who was at the wheel without a
license.
The similar accident on April
29, 2009 took the life of a 79-
year-old woman from West
Monroe, LA. She was a pas-
senger in a car driven by her
husband.
Based on a count by the Flor-
ida Department of Transporta-
tion last year, at least 15 acci-
dents have occurred at US 90
and I-to since 2003 when the
state began counting. Twenty
people have been injured plus
the two fatalities.

tor's office needs a tentative millage rate set
by August 5 so paperwork can be forward to
the state.
Total revenue for the year is estimated at
$22,327,725 while spending is proposed a
slightly more than $24 million, according to a
budget overview from the finance chief.
The county's general revenue fund is ex-
pected to have a $1.8 million surplus due to
spending cuts and rising revenues in some
areas, based on the overview projection.
But other funds that pay for road and
bridge work, housing of local inmates and fire
services are projected to fall short by varying
amounts.
The anticipated deficit in the road fund is
$513,817 and the special fire fund is a modest
$90,558 short.
The fine and forfeiture fund which also
pays for law enforcement, dispatch and the
medical examiner is about $3.4 million in
the red.
The shortfall will likely erase the general
revenue surplus and mean dipping into the
county's roughly $8 million in cash reserves
to make up the difference.
"We've got reserves," said Commissioner
Mike Griffis. 'That's what they're there for."
For budgeting purposes, county staff as-
sumed the sheriffs complex would have on
average 11o local inmates each day. The count
in recent months has hovered near that figure
all year.
Why the proposed budgets for corrections


jumped almost $350,000, law enforcement
by about $34,000, and dispatch by roughly
$20,000 was less clear to commissioners.
"We need a bit of help here," commented
Commission Chairman Alex Robinson.
The board planned to schedule a meeting
with sheriffs office officials who submitted
the increases to further investigate the spend-
ing hikes.
"Looking at this budget, I have some ques-
tions too," Commissioner Mark Hartley add-
ed.
Mr. Cone said the fire fund's deficit could be
reduced by scrutinizing the fire department's
spending plans in maintenance, equipment
and training. That could save about $25,000,
he estimated.
The manager also intends to "adjust" bud-
get proposals from the planning and building
departments, he said.
The planning department's proposed allo-
cation is up more than $2000 from last year
while the building department's is down some
$28,000.
Mr. Robinson asked that commissioners
review the draft budget, refer any suggested
changes to county staff and reconvene August
3 at 3:00 pm for another workshop.
It will take place at the county administra-
tion building, 55 N. 3rd St. in Macclenny.
The board could set a tentative millage rate
later that evening during its regular meeting.
The current rate of 7.1495 mills, or roughly
$7.15 per $1000 of taxable property value,
would generate an estimated $5,674,314 in
revenues, which is about $167,500 less than


the previous year.
A residential home assessed at $200,000
would be billed about $1430 in county taxes
at the current rate. The same property with
the $50,000 homestead exemption could pay
about $1072.
Due to falling property values, the property
tax rate, also known as the millage rate, would
need to increase to 7.3606 mills, or about
$7.36 per $1000 of taxable property value,
to keep tax proceeds level with the previous
year.
That rate is known as the rolled-back rate.
With the rolled-back rate, the $200,000
home with the homestead exemption could
pay about $1104 in county taxes, or $32 more
than under the existing tax rate.
The county's rate stood at 9.44 mills for
many years, but began dropping in 1996 to
9.22 mills and has continued falling to the
present.
Given the trend, Commissioner Gordon
Crews advocated a slight millage increase to
the rolled-back rate to reduce the sweep from
reserves. A small increase now would be more
palatable than a large hike in later years when
reserves could be depleted, he reasoned.
"It's not a killer or a back breaker," Gordon
Crews said of the rolled-back rate. "We got to
start thinking long term."
Commissioners were joined that afternoon
by several county commission candidates,
Chamber of Commerce Director Darryl Reg-
ister, Glen St. Mary Mayor Juanice Padgett
and other members of the public.
The meeting lasted about two hours.


Chris Rhoden would like to invite the citizens of Baker County
to a meet and greet campaign rally at the Women's Club,

Just before 4:00 police fielded
a second home invasion call, this
one at the residence of Sam and
Mildred Anger on Fred Harvey
Rd. east of CR 127 and about two
miles from the Barber residence.
Deputy John Hardin said
when he arrived, he found a
frantic Mrs. Anger, 77, on a front
porch, sobbing that she and her
husband, age 78, had been beat-
en, robbed and tied up.
She had locked Mr. Anger
in the house and when police
entered they found him on the
floor, moaning in pain and bleed-
ing profusely from lacerations to
the head.
Mr. Phillips allegedly ap-
proached the house asking if it
was the residence of Buddy Dug-
ger [the Macclenny fire chief who
resides in the city], then forced
his way inside, striking Mrs. An-
ger in the chest and knocking her
down.
He beat the couple before ty-
ing them up with the cable wire
and making off with an estimated
$30 in cash, the victims said.
Deputies intensified their search
when the victims' description of
the suspect matched that of the
Barber robbery.
Mrs. Anger also picked Mr.
Phillips out in the photo lineup.
She was treated at Fraser Hos-
pital and Mr. Anger was trans-
ported to Shands Gainesville for
extensive facial injuries and bro-
ken ribs.
A bicyclist identified as James
Ellis, 22, of Margaretta corrobo-
rated the earlier identification
of the Ranger with its temporary
paper license and small FSU
sticker on the rear window.
Mr. Ellis was on Fred Harvey
when the suspect left the Angers
at a high rate of speed. He also
assisted police later by finding
the stolen wallet on the dirt road
that runs between Margaretta
and CR 127.
Sheriff Joey Dobson, at a Sun-
day afternoon press conference
at the county jail to alert area
media of Mr. Phillip's status as a
fugitive to be considered danger-
ous, speculated the suspect was
back on drugs and committing
the crimes for money.
"He's not a violent person
when he's off drugs," noted the
sheriff recounting Mr. Phillips'
good behavior during the nearly


one year he spent in county jail
on a probation violation. He was
released last Christmas Eve.
The suspect, enroute back
from Lake City on Monday, re-
portedly told the sheriff and sev-
eral investigators that he blamed
his behavior on drug addiction.
While at county jail for violat-
ing probation on the sex offense,
Mr. Phillips worked in the motor
pool and was described as a good
mechanic. Since release, he had
been employed in the pulpwood
business. Authorities indicated
his work record of late was spot-
ty, likely due to drug abuse.
Florida Department of Correc-
tions and court records indicate
that Mr. Phillips was sentenced to
three years in the fall of 2006 for
molesting a 14-year-old girl, rob-
bery of the Kangaroo store across
from the county courthouse and
felony fleeing from the scene to
Baldwin, where he was arrested.
He was released on probation
in December, 2008.

IMPRESSIONS
Jim McGauley
C'mon boys. Don't be so tim-
id.
The Baker County Commis-
sion this week wimped out by
refusing to consider a plebiscite
on the matter of whether the ban
of Sunday sale of alcohol should
be lifted for establishments that
serve food.
It's not much of a big deal yet,
but once the economic engine of
this great land sputters back to
life it could very well be an issue.
Baker County still has a lot of un-
developed commercial acreage
along the interstate prime real
estate for chain restaurant, hotel
combos.
Those restaurants, whether
corporate or individually owned,
have every reason to anticipate
that an inviting economic climate
includes the ability to sell booze
seven days a week. The county
is well within its right to require
them to prove they take in a ma-
jority of proceeds from the sale of
food and not alcohol.
That would prevent what are
essentially taverns from setting
up shop by arguing they serve
food also like pretzels to go
with your beer.
The commission passed up
a chance to let the people have
their say during a relatively calm
economic climate. The board
needn't bind itself to go along
with the majority either way, in-
stead treating it for what it is a
referendum gauging the public
will.
In truth, like their counter-
parts in Macclenny who ran
like scared rabbits from the is-
sue several years ago, county
board members are let's face it
- frightened of political backlash
from church-based dissenters
who will come out of the wood-
work threatening to whip anyone
who thusly defies the Sabbath.
They are entitled to their be-
liefs, of course, and no one be-
grudges their desire to keep one
day a week void of alcohol sales
[though everyone knows you can
buy booze on Sundays at many


The restaurant-based plan, it
seems, is a fair middle ground.
It recognizes the beliefs of the
church lobby and the economic
lure of bringing in yea wel-
coming those types of estab-
lishments and the resulting eco-
nomic boost via property taxes,
jobs and payroll.
Let's not forget that a reason-
able revision of the local ordi-
nance say allowing alcohol
sales from 2:00 pm to midnight
- keeps Baker County diners and
drinkers in Baker County.
The floor plans of the Apple-
bees, Outbacks, Longhorns, etc.,
with the bar areas segregated
from general dining, reflect the
fact that some people don't want
to dine in what is primarily a
"bar" atmosphere. We can as-
sume the architects and market-


are well aware of the sentiments
that exist in many communities
in, but not limited to, the rural
South.
It's disappointing that com-
missioners [with the exception
of Michael Crews who initiated a
referendum motion that died for
lack of a second] don't have suf-
ficient confidence in their lead-
ership abilities to initiate a first
step in sorting out this issue.
There's plenty of room here
to eventually enact an ordinance
that is fair to all sides in this de-
bate, and bringing the county to
that point is a test of leadership
abilities.
This will be changed someday
in the not too distant future. Now
would have been a good time to
get the wheels in motion.


Dear Editor:
As a resident of Baker County and Macclenny, I am getting con-
cerned about the future of the area around the Walmart where I and
others have a vested interest as homeowners.
I have seen the store's appearance go down hill, the parking lot
trashed, curbs cracked and landscaping not what it could be. I am
aware that people will be people regardless of where you live.
I read last week about a strong arm robbery in the parking lot, and
store shoplifting on a daily basis. It seems to me that safety and ap-
pearance have declined over the years. What will it be like in three to
five years drug deals in the parking lot, prostitutes making rounds
among the parked overnight tractor trailers?
The store is the first and only thing that a lot of travelers using I-lo
see. What kind of impression do they leave with about our commu-
nity?
Walmart is a great convenience, I am a frequent shopper, but I feel
as a community we need to hold them responsible for our safety and
our future growth. We spend enough of our hard earned money at their
store. They should have to spend the monies as needed for the future
of our community.

The new trend: faces popping up on political signs


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD
This column is really made up
of stuff I've noticed the last few
days just driving around Baker
County. I've had a lot of Bob
time lately with my wife and kids
away, and in my travels and gen-
eral hanging around I ran across
some stuff that interested me.
Have you noticed how this
year's crop of politicians have
taken to putting their faces on
their yard signs? Big, brightly


colored signs with faces smiling
at their potential constituents.
I'm wondering what they
are thinking? That people will
look at their face and want to vote
for them?
"Hey, I know that guy. I saw
him in the grocery store last week.
He was buying an eggplant. I like
eggplants I'll vote for him."
"Hey, I know that guy. He
owes me money from when we
were in high school I'm not
voting for him."
It's a slippery slope, but I
guess these guys and gals must
have some reason for putting
their faces on their signs. They


must think it's a good idea.
I'm not so sure about that. If I
was a politician, which thankfully
I'm not, that might be a problem.
My mug on a sign would drive
away voters. "I'm not voting
for that guy. He looks like one
of those guys from Dumb and
Dumber. Why would I want him
in office?"
The only way to go is to put
somebody else's face on my sign.
I don't know, maybe Matt Da-
mon's face selling me for county
commissioner or school board
member, or maybe dog catcher.
Most people wouldn't know
the difference. "I didn't know
Bob Gerard looked like that. I
thought he was ... older some-
how. You know, he looks like I've
seen him before. Maybe at the
grocery store buying eggplant or
something."
V My sister asked me a rather
bizarre question on Facebook
this evening.
"Brother, what does it mean if

"I beg your pardon?"
"There's this button that says,
'poke.' I've always wondered
what it means."
"Only one way to find out."
"Okay."
"Yikes!!"
"What happened?"
"Uh ... nothing. Well, that was
exciting."
V Whew! I was sweating like
crazy the other day at the high
school working on my set for
Lend Me a Tenor. The air condi-
tioning has been out much of the
summer as they replace the duct
work and chillers. It gets real hot,
real fast.
Florida is the fourth most
populous state in the Union. You


know what? That's completely
because of air conditioning.
Without it, Florida would have
the population of Wyoming. No-
body would choose to live here
except mosquitoes and gnats
- certainly not snowbirds from
New Jersey.
Me and my sister never had AC
at home or in school. I slept with


a box fan in my window all the
way through college. At school
we had big fans that droned on
in the corner. Occasionally, my
sixth grade teacher Mrs. Dukes
would turn the fan so that those
of us at the back of the room got
a breath of air. I don't remember
minding it that much another
example of ignorance is bliss.


Facebook fans

'What you had to say ..:.


We asked our Facebook fans July
15, What should be done about the
deadly intersection at the Citgo west of
Sanderson on US 90 to prevent wrecks?
More signage?"Here's whatyou had to
say...

Dennie Ledford:
"I have been in an accident there
myself with someone running the stop
sign coming off the ramp. I have heard
of many accidents there. I think traffic
lights coming off the ramp is definitely
in order. This whole stretch of highway
is dangerous from the 1-10 intersection
going toward lake city on highway 90.
I have always thought that a turning
lane would be great help but it would
cost loads of money to widen the road-
way. Just knowthat these things could
save lives. Hope something is done
because I can tell you from experience
that this stretch of highway is incred-
ibly dangerous."

Roger Alexander:
"Signs wont help, people don't pay
attention to what there doing. I per-


sonally have seen drivers run the stop
signs. Maybe if the [sheriff's office]
were to watch the intersections, both
day and night, pass out a few tickets,
maybe people would start to slow
down, and pay attention to what's
around them.'

Michael Buchanan:
"Lower speed limit, and add a sig-
nal light. I am 100 percent sure the
wrecks would be less likely and deadly.
Maybe while the are doing the roads
over the next few months they should
look into it."
Tammy Crawford McFarland:
"Redlights on both sides and MORE
lighting ... More signs to warn of up-
coming stop light and maybe a sign
that says slow down? People have been
killed at this intersection ... Maybejust
maybe..:'

Marsha Thompson:
"Used to live there by the station
20+yrs ago. People going in or out of
the Citgo think they don't have to stop
there. Saw many bad wrecks there. 24-

BCDC's

'new' fee


is curious

Dear Editor:
At the county commission
meeting on July 6, our commis-
sioners voted to accept the "new"
figure for the BCDC's impact fee
related to the new jail (more than
two years late!).
The amount of the fee in
March 4 of 2008 (the minutes
of the meetings can be seen on
the commission's website) was
$224,000. According to the
county ordinance, all impact fees
are to be paid before a building
can be occupied. The ordinance
states this very clearly, but the
BCDC (which is separate from
the sheriff and his staff) was giv-
en this permit before paying.
I wonder if any other person
or business has been able to do
this? I do know the answer to
this question because our county
building inspector (who also
issues all the building permits
including the permit to occupy)
told me (to his knowledge) no
one has ever occupied without
paying the impact fees. He also
explained the method used to
obtain this figure.
Which brings me to the ex-
planation as to why the amount
was changed. A traffic study was
needed to determine the volume
that the sheriffs complex would
create. The BCDC had one con-
ducted some time ago and their
figures where thrown out and
our $224,000 stood as the right
amount. Remember, the traffic
count is a seven-day count.
Now more than two years
later, the county does a traf-
fic study and the building is put
in a different category, resulting
in an impact fee of $15,322. What
a reduction! Maybe you do not
see much wrong with this, except
the study should have been done
before they occupied the build-
ing, the county ordinance does
not give any variance, the impact
fees must be paid before it's oc-
cupied. It is hard to understand
how after more than two years,
the county takes it upon itself to
re-do the impact fee when there
is no appeal from the BCDC on
record.
If you had to pay an impact
fee in the past it may be to your
advantage to see if a different
method could be used to give you
back some much needed cash.

thing to stop it."

David Knapp:
"Perhaps some yellowflashing cau-
tion lights for the east and west bound
travel lanes and red flashing lights for
the Citgo station parking lot as well
as the 1-10 exit ramps. All of this is of
course possible but only if the FDOT
decides that the lights are warranted."

Staci Harvey Crawford:
"My husband was almost killed
there on his motorcycle in 2008. The
person was leaving citgo to get back
on 110 and was not from here. There
is only one driveway of the gas station
that you can leave out of to turn east-
bound because of the median. Out of
owners get confused ... sometimes I
get confused! I think there needs to be
red lights, not caution lights. I am for
anything that will make that intersec-
tion safer. There have been too many
people that have not been as lucky as
my husband. If nothing is done... I fear
there will be more:'

BAKER COUNTY COMMISSION


County keeps school impact fee

Concurs 3-2 with school board's earlier call


Check it out...
www.bakercountypress .com


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
A one-year moratorium on
the county's $2060 impact fee
for schools failed to gain enough
support from commissioners to
pass the evening of July 19.
The vote was 3-2 against the
measure.
Jackie Howell, a Macclenny
resident who is moving within
the county and subject to the fee,
shed tears while asking commis-
sioners to waive the fee, and the
county's $1500 transportation
impact fee.
The mother of four boys said
that after she and her husband's
business closed, the family lost
their 18oo-square-foot brick
home and moved in with her in-
laws.
Since then, they've bought a
property through owner-financ-
ing and the couple hopes to move
a single-wide mobile home there
before school starts next year,
she said.
Impact fees apply to new
dwellings, not new residents.
"We've sold trailers, golf carts
and cashed in an IRA just to pro-
vide a home for our boys," said
Ms. Howell, adding later that the
couple will need to sell a car to
pay the impact fees.
Another resident, Henry
Paige, paid the impact fees when
he moved to a different residence
within the county after two open-
heart surgeries. He said the fees
weren't waived for him, despite
his low income, and questioned
the fairness of the proposed mor-
atorium.
"If you're going to help these
people, help poor people also,"
he said.
Donald Gaines, a local home
builder and 3o-year county resi-
dent, supported the moratorium
saying it could spur more resi-
dential construction that would
mean additional property tax
revenue for years to come.
"People are scrimping and
saving," he said. "Anything would
help."
While commissioners voted
unanimously for the 365-day
moratorium on the transporta-
tion impact fee, which funds road


improvements, only two com-
missioners voted to temporarily
remove school impact fees.
"We still feel like we need the
impact fees ... Our funds are go-
ing down," Baker County Schools
Superintendent Sherrie Rauler-
son told the board.
She attributed the decline to
cuts by the state legislature in
education funding for new con-
struction, falling property val-
ues and associated tax dollars,
and additional costs related to
complying with class size limits
approved by Florida voters in
2005.
A school district planning
consultant, Janis Fleet, argued
the economic impact of a mora-
torium would be limited because
impact fees charged to develop-
ers get credited from another
group of fees paid to comply with
school concurrency rules.
The rules resulted from chang-
es in 2005 to the state's Growth
Management Act originally
passed by the Florida legislature
in 1985.
Impact fees are paid at the
time of construction, while con-
currency fees are paid prior to
approval of development plans.
But without an impact fee, con-
currency costs will be that much
higher for developers.
"It's kind of a wash," Ms. Fleet
said.
Only commissioners Gordon
Crews and Michael Crews voted
in favor of the moratorium on


school impact fees.
Gordon Crews said that with
concurrency fees still in place,
"there's not a lot of risk in los-
ing a lot of money ... [the school
board] doesn't need the money
any more than we do for the
roads you drive on."
In late June the school board
discussed the proposed morato-
rium and decided not to support
it. The county commission has
sole authority over impact fees,
however.
Commissioner Mark Hartley,
who teaches at the high school,
said he hoped the school board


would've "taken a different
route," but voted against the fee
moratorium.
"I'm sort of torn," he said. "I
work for the school district ...
But I respect the school board
members and I will support their
decision."
Commissioners Alex Robin-
son and Mike Griffis joined Mr.
Hartley in opposing the morato-
rium on school impact fees.
"I don't serve on their board,"
said Mr. Robinson in reference
to the school district's govern-
ing body. "I trust they know what
they're facing."

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


Industrial park plan is approved


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
A year-long negotiation be-
tween the county planning de-
partment and Roberts Land &
Timber Investment Corp. of Lake
Butler ended this week with the
commission's approval of the
Woodstock Industrial Park de-
velopment agreement.
The agreement gives a green
light to plans for a million square
feet of warehouse and industrial
space, which is roughly the size of
the Walmart Distribution Center
east of Macclenny, over the next
five years.
But, the agreement also binds
the developer to four-lane a sec-
tion of US 90 near the project, lo-
cated on 1600 acres near the US
90 interchange with I-io, should
more space be added.
Up to to million square feet is
planned for Woodstock Industrial
Park during the next decade and
the cost to four-lane the highway
is estimated at $4 million.
The agreement stipulates that
the improvement must be fully
bonded and built within to years
or by the time the park reaches


10 million square feet, whichever
comes first.
Roberts Land & Timber
president Avery Roberts said
the agreement marks the final
approval needed to market the
property to end buyers and us-
ers.
Mr. Roberts has been meet-
ing with such entities in recent
months and some have shown
interest, he said.
Last year the county, with as-
sistance from Roberts Land &
Timber and another developer
planning a similar project at the
eastern end of the county on US
90, secured a variance from the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation [FDOT] to increase
the amount of traffic allowed on
I-io before developers must fund
road improvements.
The variance limits the inter-
state's capacity to 5230 peak-
hour "trips" per day on any one
highway segment. The figure rep-
resents the number of vehicles on
the road during the busiest hour
of the day.
Today the eastern end of the
interstate in Baker County reg-
isters 2588 peak-hour trips and
the western end, near Woodstock


Park, registers 2018.
By the year 2020, the Wood-
stock Park project is projected to
reach or exceed the 5230 trip ca-
pacity cap east of CR 125 on I-to.
The most traveled section of
the interstate, between SRs 121
and 228, is projected to be over-
capacity sometime between 2015
and 2020 if Woodstock Park de-
velops on schedule.
"This eats up all the capacity
we got with the variance," county
planning director Ed Preston
told the board during its July 19
meeting.
Once capacity on I-to runs
out, he said developers whose
projects add more traffic to the
interstate will pay about $4,400
per trip over the cap in transpor-
tation concurrency fees.
The fees, which are also in
place for school construction as
well, are designed to ensure that
new growth pays up front for im-
provements to public infrastruc-
ture, rather than over time with
help from existing taxpayers.
The money could fund widen-
ing of the interstate or construc-
tion of parallel roads to reduce
I-to traffic.
FDOT may also raise the traf-


$5000 in equipment is stolen


A thief or thieves recently
made off with $5000 worth of
equipment owned by a logging
contractor working in the area of
Claude Harvey Rd. north of Glen
St. Mary.
A representative of Myles and
Sons Logging of East Palatka told
the sheriffs department on July
18 that a 500-gallon diesel tank
and 50-foot hose were missing
from its work site. He valued the
equipment at $4000.
Earlier this month overnight
on July lo, someone took a chain
saw valued at $1ooo. It was not
reported stolen until this week.
In other theft reports:
A criminal complaint for
grand theft will be filed against
Doyle Hardenbrook, 43, of Mac-
clenny based on a statement
made to Deputy Chris Walker by
Nora Herrmann of Sanderson.
She alleges Mr. Hardenbook
took a $750 down payment for
tractor work on her property off
Frenda Rd. and never started the


project.
The contractor recently went
to retrieve the tractor and found
that Ms. Herrmann had changed
the gate lock. She was advised
to allow its removal and file the
complaint.
Elexia Strube of Macclenny
reported someone entered her
apartment off Katie Court be-
tween 4:00 am and 3:00 pm on
July 17 and took a camera, com-
puter and hookah water smoking
device.
She placed the value of the
property at $1000ooo.
Two concrete lion forms
valued at $200 were taken from
the front gate at the residence of
Phillip Witten on Odis Yarbrough
Rd. overnight on July 18.
The owner also noted some
damage to the supporting col-
umns.
A criminal complaint for
shoplifting was filed July 17
against Marcus Hartley, 24, of
Macclenny for allegedly stealing


a pint of ice cream from the Citgo
station on SR 125 south of Glen
St. Mary.
A surveillance tape shows Mr.
Hartley stuffing the container
into a pants pocket while he and
Jeffery Overstreet, 41, of Glen
were in the store about 1:45 am.
The Citgo manager also asked
Cpl. Ben Anderson to obtain tres-
pass warrants banning the two
from the property.
A 17-year-old male from the
Baldwin area was arrested the af-
ternoon of July 13 for attempting
to steal a pack of lighters from the
Walmart Supercenter.
A complaint names Grace
Church, 42, of Macclenny for
attempting to steal a $37 pair of
sandals from Sports Shak on US
90 the afternoon of July 13.


fic capacity cap by lowering the
interstate's level of service, or
LOS.
Interstate 10 in Duval County,
for instance, is assigned an LOS
D, which permits high traf-
fic volumes before developers
must fund improvements. Baker
County had an LOS B before the
variance, which dropped it to an
LOS C and the 5320 trip cap.
"Even after the next census, we
don't anticipate [Baker County]


being a level D," said James Ben-
nett, an FDOT planning manager
in Lake City's District 2 office who
resides in Baker County.
Commissioners, noting a
number of other industrial park
projects being planned in Colum-
bia, Nassua and Clay counties,
voted unanimously to approve
the Woodstock Park develop-
ment agreement.
"I say let's take a chance and
see what happens," said board
chairman Alex Robinson, "or we
do nothing and watch other areas
build it."

While visiting with citizens throughout Baker
County the past few weeks, the same question
continues to come up-
What would make Michael Conner a good
county commissioner?


1) Man with common sense:
I have taken accounting class and business
law classes but 'balancing the budget' at
home while raising my family has taught
me priorities and discipline.
2) Man with morals:
I have faith in Jesus Christ and a personal relationship with
Him. I am always accountable to Him for all my decisions.
3) Man with concern for Baker County:
There are decisions to be made for the future of Baker
County- jobs, taxes, fees, grants. Decisions that will not only
affect you, the citizens of Baker County, but also my children
and grandchildren.

Ex-boyfriend, pals beat woman


A criminal complaint alleges
an ex-boyfriend and two accom-
plices barged into a woman's
residence the afternoon of July
16 and beat her following an ar-
gument over custody of a child.
Amanda Perry, 26, told police
Justin Harnage, 24, of Glen St.
Mary showed up at her residence
on Blue Water Court near Mac-
clenny demanding he be allowed
to take their young daughter with
him.
He left the residence briefly
after a verbal argument, then
came back in the company of
Jamey Harnage, 26, of Glen and
Darryl Starling, 43, of Macclenny
- both of whom had been outside
the door banging on it moments
before.
Ms. Perry told Deputy Johnny
Bryan the ex-boyfriend pushed
her to the floor while Jamey Har-
nage got on top of her and struck
her repeatedly and Mr. Starling
pulled her hair and kicked her in
the stomach and back.
The woman's 9-year-old son
was kicked in the thigh during
the struggle.
The victim summoned neigh-
bor Kelly Davendorf to the scene
before the attack because she
feared a confrontation, and the
witness confirmed Ms. Perry's
version of events. Deputy Bryan
noted swelling, bruises and
scratches consistent with her
statements.
The trio drove off in a Chevy


Astro van before police arrived
and the complaint charges the
ex-boyfriend with domestic bat-
tery and the other two with bat-
tery.
In other recent cases:
Carol Gainey, 44, was ar-
rested for domestic battery on
her ex-husband Ernest, 40, of St.
George, GA early on July 18.
A state trooper parked near
county jail observed the attack
after the couple arrived in sepa-
rate vehicles. Mr. Gainey and
companion Tanya Walker told
Deputy Chris Walker they had
driven to the sheriffs complex on
north 5th St. about 1:oo am.
Ms. Gainey moments before
confronted them as they left the
Moose Lodge in Macclenny and
followed them to the jail.
The same deputy arrested
Timothy Marlow, 34, on a similar
charge the evening of July 16 fol-
lowing an incident on north 5th.
Mr. Marlow is accused of at-
tacking girlfriend Lyndsey Swee-
ney, 20, during the argument
over a Facebook message. The
girlfriend said he pulled her hair
and pushed her into a window at
their residence.
Traverse Combs, 27, was ar-
rested July 16 for "head butting"
girlfriend Eilene Hammock, 30,
in the eye and punching her in
the face and back of the head.
The beating took place the
previous evening, Deputy Steven
Smith was told. The officer in-


terviewed Ms. Hammock at her
address off Ben Rowe Circle and
observed "severe bruising" about
her eyes and other signs of the
beating.
Deputy John Hardin inter-
viewed Mr. Combs later and he
admitted beating his girlfriend.
The incident was reported by a
co-worker of the victim.
Raymond Hester, 19, was
taken to jail the afternoon of
July 16 following an attack of
his mother, 43-year-old Rebecca
Myers.
Ms. Myers said she was struck
in the back of the head during an
argument over a cell phone at
their residence off Smokey Rd.
near Glen St. Mary.
She also told Deputy Johnny
Hodges similar attacks have oc-
curred in the past.
Julia Crews, 41, was arrested
for domestic assault and criminal
mischief for threatening husband
Gary Crews, 43, and damaging
his work truck with a claw ham-
mer.
The husband told Deputy
Walker his wife returned intoxi-
cated to their residence on Ad-
ams Rd. near Macclenny about
3:15 am on July 13. She threat-
ened to beat him and damaged
the interior of their residence.
The accused then went outside
and smashed the windshield, a
passenger window and mirror
on Mr. Crews' 2006 Chevrolet
pickup belonging to GE Capital


Corp.
The officer observed holes in
interior walls made by the ham-
mer, and a telephone cord that
the wife allegedly pulled from the
wall when informed that police
were called.
A criminal complaint alleges
that John Passmore, 27, repeat-
edly struck Glenn Collingwood,
24, after accusing him of theft the
evening of July 14.
The incident took place at a
residence off Clarence Dobbs Rd.
south of Sanderson. Both parties
live in that neighborhood.

Baker County horticultural
agent Alicia Lamborn was one of
three national finalists for excel-
lence in communication media to
be recognized by the National As-
sociation for CountyAgricultural
Agents July 13.
Ms. Lamborn received the
award during attendance of the
NACAA's annual week-long pro-
fessional improvement conven-
tion in Tulsa, OK.
Her article on Stinkhorn
fungus took first place last year
at the state level. Winning first
place automatically qualified her
submission at the national level.
The judging committee's de-
cisions were based on content,
organization, reliability of infor-
mation and original copy appear-
ance of the submissions.
Her photos of the fungus,
which were clear and detailed,
helped determine her as a final-
ist.
"Succinct and to the point,"
was one judge's comment about
the article.
Backin Baker County this past
Monday, Ms. Lamborn shared
some highlights about the topic
of her award-winning article.
"Stinkhorn fungus frequently
pops up after a lot of rain," she
said. "It commonly appears on
mulch which tends to hold mois-
ture for prolonged periods of
time. Contrary to what people
might think, it is not harmful to
plants or to their lawns."
There are several varieties of
the fungus, and it starts out as a
small white blob which most folks
don't pay much attention to.
However, as it matures, it
turns a bright pinkish orange and
splits open forming tentacles or
horn-like protrusions.
People definitely notice the
color, but it's the smell, which can
attract flies and insects, that has
garnered the fungus its infamy.
"It smells like rotting flesh,"
said Ms. Lamborn.
The fungus' pronged appear-
ance and stinky smell resulted in
its common name of stinkhorn,


pickup belonging to Mitchell Conner and parked
overnight offAnne Rd. near Sanderson.
Mr. Conner told Deputy Koty Crews someone at-
tempted a forced entry into his residence two days
before and he believes the incidents are related.
Misti Hodges told police the air conditioning
condenser on her 2009 Mazda was vandalized over-
night July 16. It was parked off Richard Griffis Lane
near Macclenny.
Someone damaged the interior of an Aztec boat
on the property of Country Federal Credit Union in
Glen St. Mary between July 12-14. The boat's gas
tank was also stolen.
It had been repossessed and was parked in a stor-
age area. Damage and loss was estimated at $450.
Donald Monds of Jacksonville reported all four
tires on his truck were slashed during the night July
15. The vehicle was parked off South 6th St.
A rear window of a 2006 Dodge van belong-
ing to Brandy Keeney was smashed as she drove on
South Boulevard near Grissholm St. during the early
morning hours of July 14.
It appeared someone tossed a heavy object at the
van.

as well as a host of colloquial, of-
ten fanciful labels.
According to Baker County
horticultural agent, Dr. Kyle


Brown, the fungus is of-
ten called "dead man's
fingers."
Cindy Tomas, the ag
center's administrative
assistant, knows the
foul-smelling fungus by
another name.
"We always called it
"stinky pinks," she said.
Ms. Lamborn included
many of the weird, funny
names in her article.
Stinkhorn fungus
popped up around the
ag center last year, which
afforded her the opportu-
nity to achieve some good
photographs. This past

Macclenny ended up in county
jail charged with failure to regis-
ter in Baker County as a sex of-
fender.
Deputy Patrick McGauley said
John Kenny was walking east-
bound about 11:oo the morning
of July 13 and said he moved
into that neighborhood a week
before.
A computer check revealed a
warrant from Duval County for
failure to update residence infor-
mation as required by law for sex
offenders. He was also required
to inform Baker County authori-
ties of his presence.
In other recent arrests on out-
standing warrants:

evening questioned Ms. Black-

of $365 and a wallet from Angel-
ica Nobles in north Macclenny.
Ms. Blackburn denied involve-
ment.

Bees: 'amazing creatures'


John Pierce 'sees God' in them


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Part one of a two-part series on
beekeeping and honey.

A few weeks ago, Bob Lam-
bright, who lives in downtown
Macclenny, decided it was time
to take the honey off his backyard
beehive. He asked beekeeper
John Pierce to assist.
Mr. Pierce, who lives in San-
derson, showed up late on a
Monday afternoon when there
was no rain in the forecast.
"You need to pick a day with
fair skies. Rain and bad weather
stirs up the bees and they're more
aggressive," he explained.
He's only been a beekeeper
two years, but Mr. Pierce has
been fascinated with apiculture
(beekeeping) ever since a local
man introduced him to it when
he was just a boy.
"Bees are some of the most
amazing creatures in the world,"
he said, referring to the highly
specialized and intricate work-
ings of their colonies. "If you
don't see God in bees then you
just don't see God at all."
Mr. Pierce loaded his metal
smoker, a can with a small bel-
lows and funnel-shaped tube,
with pine straw. When the straw
was lit, it smoldered inside the
can. Pumping the bellows drew
in oxygen and increased the
flame, producing the smoke. He
then applied smoke around the
hive consisting of three square
stacked boxes. Smoke has a
calming effect on bees and dis-
guises a chemical signal sent out
by guardian bees that alert other
bees to danger.
He carefully disassembled the
boxes, then used a metal spatula
to loosen a series of vertical wood
frames that he slowly pulled out.
The frames from the two upper
boxes bulged with translucent
wax combs full of honey. The
lower box held the dark brown,
opaque brood combs where the
queen bee lays the eggs that be-
come larvae and finally, adult
bees. A metal grate called an ex-
cluder, which prevents the queen
from traveling up into the honey
combs, divides the two sections.
He may have been at it only
two years, but Mr. Pierce is en-
gaging in a practice that is one of
the oldest documented forms of
human activity.
Some of the earliest evidence
of gathering honey from wild col-
onies comes from rock paintings,
dating to around 13,000 BC.
Mr. Lambright is no stranger
to beekeeping, either. He oper-
ated a honey business in Daytona
Beach with his brother back in
the late 1940s. Today, his single
backyard hive, that supports
about 1o,ooo of the creatures, is
more than enough.
"I'm ready when you are,
John," Mr. Lambright called
from across the yard, where he
had set up a table to uncap the
honey combs. The honey extrac-
tor, a barrel-shaped collection
device for separating the honey
from the combs, stood next to it.
Mr. Pierce carried the honey-
laden frames to the table, placing

other bees can go find the source
of nectar.
"That just pure amazes me,"
said Mr. Pierce.
"What amazed me was the
money my brother and I were
able to make when we were
young," said Mr. Lambright with
a laugh. "Sugar was so heavily ra-
tioned during the war that honey
was in great demand. We had
about 40 hives and we did pretty
good."
Mr. Pierce stopped cranking
and the frames came to a rest. It
was time to siphon off the first
pint. Mr. Lambright opened a
valve and the liquid honey, dark
gold in color, filled the jar.
The taste was exquisite.
Mr. Lambright's hive pro-
duced wildflower honey because
the bees drew nectar from many
different types of flowers to make
it. Ultimately, his hive produced
about 80 pints.
"I'm just happy that bees are
coming back from some of the
problems that have been affect-
ing them," said Mr. Pierce.
The plight of bees in recent
years has made headlines in the
news. There are beetles and mites
that infest and destroy the hives.
A disease known as American
Brood Foul wipes out bee larva
before they can mature.
Strangest of all is a phenom-
enon known as "colony collapse
disorder," which has plagued
bees and threatened agricultural
practices that depend on the crea-
tures for pollination of crops.
"Without bees there pretty
much wouldn't be any fruit or
vegetables," said Mr. Pierce. "But
the bees seem to be rallying again
which is a very good thing."


each in a metal pan. The two men
stood the frames upright and be-
gan running a long, flat-bladed
knife slowly across the caps of the
comb. Some of the honey began
to trickle down into the pans.
Once all the caps were re-
moved, the frames were inserted
into basket holders inside the ex-
tractor. When the extractor was
full, the lid was placed on the top
and a hand crank was operated.
The frames started to circulate,
producing a whir-whir sound.
This is known as "slinging the
honey."
"Centrifugal force empties the
comb and the honey slides down
the sides of the extractor barrel,
collecting at the bottom," said
Mr. Lambright.
Slinging each set of frames
takes a few minutes. Mr. Pierce
cranks the handle steadily.
'The part that gets me is how
they communicate the locations
of flowers to all the other bees in
the hive. The do it by dancing,"
he said.
He explains that bees navigate
to and from the hive by using the
sun as a compass. They see in
three colors green, blue and
ultraviolet.
Bees see ultraviolet light as
polarized, meaning the angle of
light is all in one direction instead
of scattered the way humans see
it. Ultraviolet light penetrates
clouds, so even on overcast days,
bees can detect the position of
the sun. As the bee flies away
from the hive and then returns, it
forms a topographic road map in
its memory based on landmarks
and the angle of the sun.
Once back in the hive it rec-

In Loving Memory
of
Caden William Anderson
7/24/2008 5/12/2010
We little knew that morning
God would call your name,
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke out hearts to lose you,
You didn't go alone.
for part of us went with you
the day God called you home.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.
Happy Birthday Caden
LOVE,
AUNT STACIE, UNCLE GOBER
AND ADDY


In Loving Memory
of
Caden William Anderson
7/24/2008 5/12/2010
Even though it hasn't been long
Since the day that you've been
gone,
People tell us "time will heal..."
But not having you here seems
so unreal.
We feel like we're living in a
dream -
Then reality hits... and we want
to scream:
You are our baby, our first born
- our son
And with your short life, we
know we weren't done
With teaching and loving and
caring that's true,
And all of life's treasure we
wanted for you.
We keep thinking what would
we do,
If we had another moment to
say "I love you."
How would we fill that moment
we long of
Except with words conveying
our love.
We can't be thankful of what we
have not -
But do try to be thankfulfor all
we've got.
The time with you so short and
sweet,
You always were "our special
treat."
Happy Birthday Caden!
MOMMA AND DADDY
LOVE AND MISS YOU!


In Loving Memory
of our Daddy
James H. Williams
4/08/1897- 7/22/1961
Seed Time and Harvest
Daddy arose at daybreak
and worked all day on the farm.
He ate his breakfast
and then headed for the barn.
He did the chores and saw
that all the animals were fed,
Then hitched the mule to the
plow and did what Daddy said.
They plowed till dinner time,
ate and rested for a while.
Then he grabbed his old
straw hat,
which was always in style.
I can still see Daddy, so vivid,
as he plowed, row after row.
Getting ready the ground
for the seed he would sow.
When he planted the seed,
God always multiplied.
He watered and nourished,
the increase never denied.
There was plenty of everything,
potatoes, corn and beans.
And there never was a
shortage, not by any means.
Daddy always took pride
in the work he undertook.
You could tell by his face,
there was that certain look.
Each day, Daddy's feet
must have trod many a mile.
But he received much satisfac-
tion
and there was always a smile.
As the years passed,
Daddy's body became wracked
with pain.
He still tried to work, but his
strength could not regain.
As he lay on his deathbed,
I could hear him exhort,
"Don't take life for granted,
it is much too short.
Live each day to the fullest
and prepare to meet God.
He'll be waiting to meet you
as you leave this sod."
Then Daddy closed his eyes in
death, but that was not the end.
He's waiting for his family
to be reunited with him.
LOVED AND MISSED VERY MUCH,
RUBY WILLIAMS SHEETS AND FAM-
ILY

I wonder what it's like -
First birthday in Heaven.
It must be a sight!

With family and friends around
you,

From down here below,
We all miss you badly,
And we sure miss you so.

It's been one year,
You are so missed dear.
Though your smile is goneforever,
And your hand we cannot touch,
We still have so many memories
Of the one we loved so much
Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we'll never part.
God has you in His keeping
We have you in our hearts.
Sadly missed but never forgotten
WE LOVE AND MISS YOU SO VERY
MUCH!

God saw you getting tired,
and a cure was not to be,
So He put His arms around
you and whispered, "Come to
me."
With tearful eyes we watched
you and saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dear-
ly, we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beat-
ing, hard working hands at
rest,
God broke our hearts to prove
to us that He only takes the best.
FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS,

You would have turned 2 today,
if you were still here.
Although you are so far away,
our hearts have kept you near.
The pain has eased a bit, I guess,
yet has not gone away.
It will always stay a part of us,
until we join you one day.
We send our love to you,
from all our hearts to yours.
Just think, a birthday spent in
Heaven,
means you'll spend it with The
Lord.
LOVE You So MUCH,

Softball all-stars head to state


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
The Baker County 9 and to year old girls
softball All-Stars were just that, All-Stars as
they outscored their opponents 37-3 to win
the Little League sectionals and book a place
in state championships this weekend in Key
Largo.
The girls will go into the quarterfinals with
lots of confidence.
Coach David Crummey was effusive in his
praise of the young team and rightfully so.
"We played these two games about as good
as you can play a double header," he said. "We
hit the ball well, played great defense and had
no errors and were stellar on the mound with
our pitching.
"It seems we are peaking at the right time
as we travel to the state championship again
this year. If we can continue this week at this
pace, we have a shot at bringing a state cham-
pionship back to Baker County," said Coach
Crummey.
The girls ran through the competition in
DeLand July 17 defeating Rockledge 20-1 and
defeating the host team 17-2 to win the Sec-
tion 3 championship.
In the first matchup against Rockledge, the
team overwhelmed the competition, explod-
ing for 12 hits including a pair of home runs.
The pitching tandem of Kelsey Strickland,
Allie Crummey and Tori Richardson all com-
bined to pitch their third combined no-hitter
in four games in the post-season tourna-
ment.
"We could not have started any better
against Rockledge. Our pitchers were hitting
their spots and when they did put the ball
in play, we made a play somewhere and of-
fensively we were getting big hits in crucial
spots." said Crummey. "We started with the

lead early and never looked back."
In the second game Baker came up against
the best pitching they've faced in the tourna-
ment. The game was close through five innings
forcing Crummey to change his strategy.
"Their starting pitcher threw hard and we
were a little slow in catching up with her, so
we made a decision on the fly to play small
ball, and blew the game open late in the 5th
inning," he said.
The team hit the ball well in the game and
collected three homeruns by Macy Jackson,
Lake Lewis and
e-M -I Madison Kennedy.
Jackson went the
distance for the
team again hurling a
no hitter.

Y swimmers qualify for

regional championships


The YMCA's Baker Bullets
swim team had a strong showing
at the regional championships on
July 17 at the Baker County Fam-
ily YMCA pool.
The purpose of the meet was
to qualify kids 9 years and older
for the YMCA First Coast swim-
ming championships July 23-24
at the Barco-Newton YMCA in
Fleming Island.
All 8-year-old and under kids
automatically qualified for their
events.
Teams from the Baker County
YMCA and all the Clay County
YMCA's swam in the regional
championship. All but two of the
Baker Bullets swimmers in the 9
and older bracket qualified for
most, if not all, of their individual
events.


The remaining two girls will be
valuable parts of relay teams that
will be competing this Saturday.
There were several swimmers
of note last Saturday.
Corey Campbell, Ethan
Knight, Braeden Knight and
Landon Hickman each won their
individual events and set new
meet records in multiple events.
Travis Oswald just missed
breaking his own records from
last year, due in part to the lack of
starting blocks at the local pool.
"Our strong showing at the
meet underscores the fact that we
really need to have a high school
team," said swim team represen-
tative Andy Johnston. "We have
a strong boys' program and our
girls' program outnumbered our
boys for the first time this year."

Marshal Hall & Bobby Hall
