Suicidal

JOEL ADDINGTON

An 18-year-old Olustee
youth, who allegedly attacked
his younger sister with a kitchen
knife July 19, turned the weapon
on himself,
cutting up
his arms
and leg
during the
mid-day
incident,
police re-
ported this
week.

domestic
violence charge for aggravated
battery against his 15-year-old
sister.
When Deputy Kevin Jenkins
responded to their Shaw Street
address in reference to a suicide
attempt about 11:55 am, he said
the suspect was slicing his left
arm with what the officer de-
scribed as a large knife.
The officer noted several
bleeding cuts to the young
man's arms, leg and thumb.
"I want to kill myself," Mr.
Chambers' said, according to
Deputy Jenkins' report.
After the suspect was taken
to the emergency room for
treatment, Mr. Chambers' sister
recounted the struggle that oc-
curred some 30 minutes before
police arrived.
She said Mr. Chambers was
sitting on the porch when she
returned home from work be-
cause he's not permitted inside
without parental supervision
due to previous incidents of
domestic violence and a rape
attempt.
Deputy Jenkins said that
after the victim brought Mr.
Chambers a bowl of cereal to
eat, she was pushed inside and
onto the floor, where Mr. Cham-
bers held a knife to her throat
and threatened to kill her when
she started screaming.
It wasn't until the victim's
mother pulled up that the attack
stopped and Mr. Chambers ran
into the kitchen, the sister said.
She ran outside to Rebecca
Cobb, who after hearing what
occurred went inside to find Mr.
Chambers cutting himself in the
kitchen.
The struggle left the sister
with bruises on the neck and

BCDC loses millions despite more inmates


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
Sheriffs office and county officials
have said many times, both publicly and
privately, that the Baker County Com-
mission and Baker Correctional Develop-
ment Corporation [BCDC] are separate
entities largely independent from one
another.
But both are suffering revenue short-
falls and the BCDC's operating losses
aren't helping the county's dependence
on reserves.
The deficit in the fund that pays for
housing local inmates is expected to top
$3.4 million for the 2010-11 fiscal year
beginning October 1.
Reducing the number of county in-
mates at the BCDC-owned jail north of
Macclenny is the only way to reduce the

finance manager Jeffrey Cox.
It was thought that Immigration and
Customs Enforcement [ICE] would fill
up the 500-plus bed jail with its prison-
ers and for good reason.
BCDC officials as well as Sheriff Joey
Dobson, who runs the jail today, say they
were assured by a now retired, but for-
merly high-ranking ICE official in Miami
that the jail north of Macclenny would be
at near-capacity soon after opening its
doors.

the mural appeared in an issue
of The Army Times.
He did paintings and gave
them away to fellow soldiers.
After leaving the service he con-
tinued to paint. Four years ago,
he and his family moved from
Jacksonville to Glen St. Mary.
For some time, Mr. Siddell
has been thinking about one of
the paintings he did during his
time in Germany, which he gave
to a female soldier who was be-
ing discharged.
After some searching, he fi-
nally located an old slide he took
of the painting before giving it
away and was able to make sev-
eral photo reproductions which
he had mounted.
He recently donated one to
St. Mary's Catholic Church in


Macclenny.
The image shows a very preg-
nant Mary, on the eve of Jesus'
birth, standing at the door of the
inn. She's just received the news
that there is no room available
and looks back at the viewer
with an expression that seems
to say, "Well, what now?"
"The painting didn't start off
with a religious theme," said
Mr. Siddell. "I saw an image of a
woman in a magazine and I was
just recreating it, but there was
no background. That's when I
let my imagination take over."
He envisioned that moment
on Christmas Eve when Joseph
was desperately looking for a
place for Mary to give birth. He
had to leave her at the inn's front
door while he went and checked


the barn and the manger.
Mr. Siddell was then able to
create the appropriate setting
for his subject, painting his
model as an expectant mother.
He didn't keep the painting
long.
At that time, he learned of
the young female soldier who
was being discharged because
she had gotten pregnant. Feel-
ing compassion for her situa-
tion, he gave her the painting of
Mary.
"I remember that she was
very touched by the gesture.
She must have felt alone, like
Mary probably did just before
she gave birth," Mr. Siddell
said. "I told her to always keep
the painting with her and her

pation is critical in such a tight-
knit rural community like Baker
County, they've said.
An advertising campaign for
the study will launch in August,
to be followed up by outreach ac-
tivities to recruit mothers and ba-
bies to volunteer in the research.
Dr. Hudak said the goal is
to enroll about 600 expectant
mothers.
"We've got to enroll just about
every [pregnant] woman over the
next four years," he said.
The Johns Hopkins graduate
doesn't expect that will be easy.
That's why he gathered a group
of local public health officials and
experts from the University of
Miami and University of South
Florida, who are working on the
study as well, for a brainstorming
session at the health department
in late June to discuss how to
build enthusiasm for the study.
"What are the best ways to
reach the residents of Baker
County?" he asked.
In addition to the media cam-
paign, the group recommended
enlisting the help of business
leaders, churches, civic organiza-
tions and healthcare providers
like the health department, which
comes into contact with almost
half of all Baker County mothers
at some point during pregnancy.
Given the high number of
young mothers in the area, en-
gaging their parents will be im-
portant too, said Healthy Start
director Sue Murphy.
Booths at the county fair and
other events can help spread the
word as well.
"The more people we get to
buy in, understand what we're
doing and why we're doing it,
the more successful we'll be," Dr.
Hudak said.
Mothers who participate in
the study can expect some perks.
They'll receive cash payments

might possibly be valuable one
day, which could benefit her in
some way."
That was 30 years ago. Mr.
Siddell never knew who the
woman was, only that she lived
in south Florida somewhere. The
woman's child would be an adult
now.
He admits he is curious to
know if she still has the painting
and would love to see it again and
find out how her life turned out.
Even if she passed it on, he'd like
to locate the painting.
"I'd just love to see it again,"
he said. "Maybe someone who
reads this article will recognize it
and contact me."
He admits he always had the
dream of showing the painting to
the Pope and having him bless it,
maybe even request to keep it.
"What artist wouldn't want
to see their work hanging in the
Vatican?" he asks, smiling.
Mr. Siddell is currently com-
pleting another painting with
a religious theme: Jesus on the
Jordan.
"It's caused a bit of a stir
among folks who have seen it in
progress. I didn't paint Jesus in
the European tradition with the
fair skin and blue eyes," he said.
"I painted him as an authentic
Jew of the times he lived in with
dark skin and dark, curly hair,
the way the Bible describes."

searchers, two free ultrasounds
and other benefits that come
with involvement in a long-term
health study.
"When you're apart of a study,
you can feel like there are more
eyes looking after your child," Dr.
Hudak said. "That's very posi-
tive."
But volunteering for the study
will mean investing free time pe-
riodically over two decades and
allowing researchers into your


home for the sampling of water,
soil, air and food.
"There is some sacrifice in-
volved. We can't minimize that
..." Dr. Hudak explained. "There's
going to be a sense of altruism
about this."
But the insights that can be
gleaned from such a comprehen-
sive study will be vast and carry
implications worldwide.
"We have to talk that up ..."


said Mr. Hudak. "It's participa-
tion in something that can change
how we do healthcare for the next
generation."
Battelle, an Ohio-based inter-
national science and technology
non-profit corporation, has been
contracted to hire and manage
about 20 outreach workers to go
door-to-door in Baker County
and call residents by phone to
build interest in the study and
recruit potential volunteers.
The study will bring five addi-
tional nursing and research posi-
tions to the county as well.
"These are long-term jobs,"
said Ms. Dunlavey. "Economical-
ly, it's beneficial for the county."
Battelle will also conduct labo-
ratory tests and manage data col-
lection and storage. Ms. Dunalevy
assured county commissioners
study participants' information
would remain confidential.
Planning for the study began
in 2000 after Congress approved
its first round of funding, which
has continued every year since.
The cost is about $8 million
every five years, said Dr. Hudak.
"There is broad support for
this study," he said. "I'm not con-
cerned it will just stop."

THE BACK

PORCH
Kelley Lannigan


I was watching TV early in the
evening last Thursday, when my
landlady, Betty Sands, knocked
on my door.
"We have something sort of
mysterious about to happen,"
she said.
Ms. Sands rarely makes inane
small talk with me. Usually, when
she comes to my door, it's about
something important or interest-
ing. There was nothing but junk
on the TV, so the word "mysteri-
ous" really got my attention. I was
out of the chair in a heartbeat.
"I don't know for sure," she
said. "But something could be
blooming tonight."
I felt a prickle of excitement.
In my mind's eye I envisioned the
title of a Nancy Drew mystery:
The Secret in the Greenhouse.
I could just see the book cov-
er's design.
Girl sleuth Nancy Drew, carry-
ing a lighted candle and looking
warily over her right shoulder as
she crossed a shadowed garden
courtyard toward a small green-
house, silhouetted against the
rising full moon, its door ajar.
"It's the Cereus plant," Ms.
Sands continued. "I think it's
about to bloom."
The Night Blooming Cereus is
also called the Luna Flower and
Queen of the Night. Someone had
given me a small cutting from a
Cereus two years ago. At the time
I hadn't realized what it was. The


cutting was plain and unimpres-
sive. Distracted with other things,
I never got around to potting it
and it ended up on a pile of yard
debris out by the street.
Unbeknownst to me, Ms.
Sands rescued the abandoned
clipping and potted it. In time,
the lowly clipping sprouted more
sections. It grew and grew and
became a substantial addition
to the collection of plants in her
outdoor Florida room.
One day, a few months ago,
she pointed it out to me.
"That's the plant you threw
away that time."
I looked at it in shock.
"I don't believe it."
"It's done really well. Do you
know what it is? No? Well, I think
it's a night blooming Cereus."
Now I really was in shock.
I'd always been curious about
the Night Blooming Cereus. My
late grandmother Lottie Lanni-


gan had kept one on her porch.
It bloomed, she told me, at mid-
night and the flowers only lasted
a few hours.
She used to cut off a bloom
and put it in a plastic bag in the
refrigerator so everyone else in
the house could see it the next
morning.
I was never around to see one
of these refrigerated blooms, but
her description of it burned itself
into my imagination.
"They say if you look straight
down the middle of the bloom
you see the baby Jesus lying in
the manger," she always said.
That was nearly three decades
ago. I'd never seen a Cereus plant,
let alone one in the act of bloom-
ing and suddenly I was about to.
"I don't know what time it will
happen," said Ms. Sands. "You'd
have to get up and check. I don't
knowif I'll be able to manage that
or not."
Not to worry. I'd take flower
watch during the night. I wasn't
about to miss this.
At 10:00 pm, Ms. Sands went
to bed. I got engrossed in some
rerun on HBO. I went out in the
dark and checked at 11:45. Noth-
ing had happened. More TV. I
fell asleep in the chair and woke
at 12:20. I almost went on to bed,
thinking I'd get back up about
3:oo, but I went out again, just
in case. As I approached, even in
the dark, I could make out two
ghostly white shapes. I ran back
to get the camera.
Cereus is a cactus. Its flowers
bloom one night each year, for
a few hours, the slender petals
uncurling in dramatic fashion. If
a nocturnal bee, fly or moth hap-
pens to show up and pollinate
the flower, a spectacular looking
thing called dragon fruit is the
result.
Seeing one of these plants
bloom was on my bucket list.
Tasting a dragon fruit is next.

--- LETTER TO THE EDITOR -----


Decries 'new' America


America has become the land
of: money above all, unequal
standards and the result justifies
any means.
We take money from those
that work for it, but give it to
those who do not want to work,
not only the needy.
If we do not like a minority,
we are a racist, but if a minority
doesn't like a majority, it is their
constitutional right.
In public schools homosexual-
ity is accepted as an alternate life
style, but we may not even refer
to the name of God.
We cannot protect our Mexi-
can border, but do a fine job at
the North Korean border.
It is legal to murder an unborn
child, but wrong to take the life of
convicted killers or even a rattle-
snake in some areas.
No, we do not burn books, we
just change them to show history
as we want.
If you lie to the government
it is against the law, but if the
government lies to you, it is just
politics.
If you give anything of value to
un-elected public officials for any
favor or profit it is a bribe and
punishable. However, do it to an
elected official and it becomes a
legal bribe and is called a political
contribution. We have thousands
in D.C. that earn very good livings
delivering legal bribes they are


called lobbyists.
We spend ungodly amounts of
money to rehabilitate, not pun-
ish, criminals, but hardly any-
thing on the victims.
Number 9 has helped elimi-
nate all criminals in America.
They are now sick people and
were usually abused as children.
A human fetus may be used
for research, but it is wrong to
use an animal.
We may have pornography
on TV, but not a nativity scene in
most public places during Christ-
mas.
We do have freedom of speech,
if it is politically correct.
We removed the communist
and socialist supporters, they are
now called progressives.
If you protest against [Presi-
dent] Obama, you are a racist,
terrorist or bigot. However, burn
the American flag, fly the Mexi-
can flag over the American flag
or fly the American flag upside
down, and it is your First Amend-
ment right.
This is enough to see that our
only hope is first, God and sec-
ond, the polls.

'What you had to say..:"


We asked our Facebook fans July
22, "How do you feel about the county
commissioners not allowing a referen-
dum on the ballot this year regarding
Sunday alcohol sales?"Here's whatyou
had to say...

Aaron Scott:
"I heartily commend them! Very
simply, there are people who would
blithely give up the small town values
we have for a steak house. While I
want our commissioners to represent
the people, there are times when they
have to represent what is in the ULTI-
MATE interests of the people, and not
just in their current interests. If there
are restaurants that won't come to
Baker County just because they can't
sell alcohol on one day of the week,
then we don't need them, even if we'd
like to have them:'

Marilyn Penrod:
"I feel the key words there are'not
allow ..: Keep in mind people, these


guys are paid with our tax dollars Elec-
tion time is coming. What say we get
some new faces in these offices and
change our county a little bit? I've lived
here 30 years and watched other coun-
ties around us thrive, so if ours is still
behind the times a bit, I'd say look to
our leaders. Change the faces behind
those desks."

Steven Hastings:
"The commissioners need to let the
people have their say one way or the
other. Put it on the ballot in November
and if it passes, fine, and if it doesn't,
fine. Let the people of Baker County
decide!"

Scott Mathis:
"Our country is based on democ-
racy. It's a shame that our county is not.
For it or against it, is not the issue. The
issue is the taxpaying voters should
have the final say."

Angela Suppa Callahan:


Summer is coming to a close.
Hey, now. Don't get me wrong.
I love my profession. I have been
a teacher for well over half my
life. I like it fine but there's some-
thing about that moment of real-
ity when the first clear backpack
shows up in stores that is like the
blast of a fireman's hose.
Yeah, yeah. I hear you. All of
those folks out there who aren't
teachers are mentally complain-
ing about me complaining about
having to go back to work when
they only get a week, or at the
most two, for vacation and I get
two months.
I know, I know. I feel your
pain.
But still...
It's seeing that wall of note-
books and Elmer's glue and gem
clips and mechanical pencils ris-
ing like Everest that's so daunt-
ing. Every summer when I walk
past those displays it's like the
thumb tacks are eyes that follow
me as I go down the aisle and I
keep expecting them to wink and
the whole thing to fall down on
my head.
ARRRRGGGGHHHH!
Then dozens of Walmart em-
ployees try to dig me out while
hand held staplers come to life
and staple book covers of Miley
Cyrus and Justin Bieber to my
forehead.
It's a recurring nightmare.
Like I said, I've been a teacher
for a looong time. I started at
Baker High in 1983 and am well
into teaching the children of peo-
ple I taught years ago.
Personally, I don't feel that
I've changed a whole lot. I've
slowed down a little and might be
gapped musically, but I still relate
pretty well with the students.
With three weeks to go be-
fore school starts, many of my
elementary school friends have
already been planning their bul-
letin boards like Gen. Norman
Schwarzkopf planning the libera-
tion of Kuwait. They have those
babies all mapped out and plastic
tubs full of stuff to go on them.
Some of the really industrious
have already made forays into
their classroom to get a head start
on their bulletin boards. Heaven
help them if the teacher across
the hall has a better b-board than
them. It's a matter of personal
honor.
If I manage a welcome sign I
feel like I've accomplished some-
thing.
So ... now ... It's time to start
changing my mindset. No more of
this staying up to see Letterman's
monologue got to be in bed by
10:30 and up at 6 am. Time to
put on long pants and shoes that
tie. School's a coming' and I've got
to be ready.
Carpe Creta! Sieze the Chalk!

"It should be left to the voters to
decide! I think we are walking a fine
line when we use religious reasoning
for public policy. I don't think there is
anything 'unholy'about having a glass
of wine, regardless of what day of the
week it is. And for the record, I am a
Christian! I just believe that people
should be allowed to make their own
decisions."

Aaron Scott:
"Folks, if this is about jobs, then
there are many other ways of bring-
ing jobs here without selling our
birthright. Why you'd think the only
jobs that could possibly come to Baker
County are in the form of restaurants?
But it's not really about jobs, is it? It's
about some folks thinking they are
inconvenienced for not being allowed
to buy beer on one day of the week:
Sunday. Oh, the horror!"

BCDC losing millions...


(From page 1
that opened in 2008 was offered
up as the model for BCDC to fol-
low. BCDC sold $45 million in
bonds and launched construction
at the 20-acre site on SR 228 N.
later that year.
Sheriff Joey Dobson said the
Glades facility filled up within a
month of opening. He and others
expected the same thing to hap-
pen here.
"We put a lot of faith in ICE,
is what happened," commented
Todd Knabb, BCDC president
and board chairman.
BCDC's written agreement
with ICE dictated the daily rate
for housing prisoners about
$84 per inmate but not how
many they would send here.
Last year, as the county's local
inmates moved into the jail and
sheriffs office personnel vacated
the old facility, the county struck
an agreement with BCDC that, in
part, mandated any excess rev-
enues left over after October 1,
2010, and every year thereafter,
would revert to the Baker County
Commission.
Since federal inmates have
been slow to arrive, no excess
revenues are expected this year
as the county commission faces
its $1.6 million budget shortfall.
The BCDC's finances aren't
much better, though they're im-
proving.
The BCDC lost some $2.7 mil-
lion from October 2009 to June
2010, and more than $370,000
in the month of June alone, ac-
cording to an income statement
presented to BCDC board mem-
bers last week along with average
daily inmate counts during that
period.
During those nine months,
the average daily inmate count
was 281.
In October 2009, the average
split among jurisdictions was 117
local inmates, 93 ICE inmates
and nine others from the US
Marshals and Bureau of Prisons
[BOP].
By June 2010, ICE's prisoners
averaged 172, Marshals' prison-
ers grew to 24.5 and BOP added
an average of 3.5 detainees. Lo-
cal inmates averaged 118 that
month.
The roughly 338 a day aver-
age this month is highest inmate
count the jail's seen so far, said
Captain Danny Thomas of the
corrections division.


That's about 68 percent of the
available capacity.
Monthly housing invoice
amounts have been rising too,
from $564,563 last October to
$807,635 in June.
Sheriff Dobson added that
ICE's new budget will increase
2.5 percent this year, or about
$44 billion, which could place
more of the agency's inmates
here.
"We're hoping with that they'll
take our 192 [prisoner] cap off
and go to the 250 [prisoners]
that we originally talked about,"
he said.
The BCDC's budget is based
on a total inmate count of 347,
which officials called a conserva-
tive estimate.
"We're not trusting ICE on
their appropriation one bit," said
Brian Bishop, the sheriffs office
administrative chief.
Sheriffs officials have also
been in contact with representa-
tives for the bondholders regard-
ing the BCDC's terms for repay-
ment.
Mr. Cox said the bondhold-
ers have been advised of BCDC's


fiscal difficulties and agreed to
"work with" the organization,
possibly by adjusting terms for
repaying the debt. He didn't
know how or when that might
take place.
New Jersey-based Bergen
Capital marketed and sold
BCDC's bonds in 2008, but the
company's managing director
James Swan was reluctant to
confirm whether bondholders
were indeed willing to adjust the
terms.
When asked if he was aware
of the operational losses being
incurred by BCDC, he said, "It's
easier if I just don't comment."
The BCDC's 2010-11 budget
totals $12.2 million, which is
about $3.1 million more than its
previous budget as revised last
January.
"We've been here a year and if
we're still at these [inmate] num-
bers next year, then we'll start
grumbling," Sheriff Dobson said.

Deputy Jenkins also reported
that Mr. Chambers said he was
cut by the victim with the knife
first, after they got into an argu-
ment.
He was taken into custody
under the Baker Act, which al-

has been having marital prob-
lems for some time and the ar-
gument started after she came
home about 10:30 from being
"out with someone she should
not have been," stated Deputy
Scotty Rhoden's report.
He arrived to the Leon Dopson
Road residence 30 minutes later
and spoke with the suspect, who

Delivery men jailed

after firing at buck

in Glen, trespassing
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission [FWC] arrested two men
in the early morning hours of July 22 for trespassing and shooting at a
deer in a residential area of Glen St. Mary.
Sheriffs Deputy Patrick McGauley, who lives in the area of Glen-
view Drive, awoke to the sounds of gun fire about 2:00 am and looked
out his window to see a truck leaving a neighboring driveway, where
a short time later he found a Whitetail buck about 100 yards from the
roadway.
Officers pulled over the truck driven by Joshua Dinkins, 19, at CR
125 and Cattle Gap Lane. He and passenger Brandon Taylor, 18, admit-
ted to shooting at the deer with a Marlin 30/30 rifle while delivering a
newspaper to the Glenview address, according to Deputy McGauley's
report.
At that point the suspects were turned over to FWC officer Darren
Whitaker, who arrested the men on charges of felony trespassing with
a projectile, attempting to take wildlife from the roadway and hunting
at night.
The latter two charges are misdemeanors.
In a separate case, Andrew N. Proctor, 67, landed in countyjail for
driving reckless the evening of July 20.
Deputy Brandon Kiser spotted his 1995 Saturn driving in the wrong
lane on North 7th Street about 2:48 pm and followed the vehicle as it
failed to yield the right-of-way to a black SUV.
Deputy Kiser's report states the SUV had to take evasive action to
avoid a collision with the Saturn.
The suspect was stopped at North Boulevard and Blair Street, but
would not answer any of the deputy's questions regarding his erratic
driving. That's when Mr. Proctor was arrested for reckless driving, a
misdemeanor.
Donald R. Smith, 31, of Macclenny was arrested for driving with a
suspended license July 24.
Deputy Daryl Mobley observed a black truck with three females in
the front passenger seat and one partially hanging out of window as
the vehicle headed west on Macclenny Avenue and turned into Mac's
Liquors about 11:15 pm.
When the officer stopped the truck, he confirmed that the driver,
Mr. Smith, had four license suspensions, making him an habitual traf-
fic offender.

Other defendants sentenced
last week drew probation sen-
tences for their crimes. They in-
cluded:
Charles E. Anderson Jr.,
44, of Macclenny received three
years probation in return for his
plea to domestic battery. Judge
Rosier withheld adjudication
on a count of aggravated assault
with a deadly weapon.
The case stemmed from a May
27 incident on Barber Circle in
which Mr. Anderson beat his wife
Tina and threatened her with a
knife.
"As soon as I get out of jail, I'll
be back and I'll make sure you
don't live to see your son ..." he
was quoted as saying in the police
report.
Mr. Anderson was arrested
a short time later at a Maclenny
park.
The defendant was also court-
ordered into domestic violence
classes.


Marleon Dell Farmer, 21, of
Sanderson pled to grand theft in
return for 36 months probation
for stealing and pawning jewelry
and DVDs taken from his live-in
girlfriend's mother during a five
month period ending in Decem-
ber 2009.
The value of the stolen prop-
erty was estimated at $450.
Bruce Edward Mainor, 50,
of Jacksonville pled guilty to sale
and delivery of cocaine in return
for two years of drug offender
probation. Counts for drug pos-
session and drug possession with
intent to sell were dropped.
Mr. Mainor sold about $600
worth of cocaine to a confidential
informant working with investi-
gators at a church on South 5th
Street in Macclenny April 23.
Tiffany Marie Watson re-
ceived a year of probation for her
plea to grand theft from Walmart
May 19.
James H. Pierson pled to
criminal mischief while a patient
at Northeast Florida State Hospi-
tal. He was released after serving
186 days in countyjail.


Bank card

charges

from CA

A rash of fraudulent debit and
credit card charges originating
in California began appearing
on the accounts of several Baker
County residents this month, ac-
cording to recent police reports.
At least eight accounts held at
Mercantile Bank, American En-
terprise Bank and Vysar Credit
Union were hit more than $3000
in fraudulent transactions be-
tween June 28 and July 24.
Most of the victims lived in
Macclenny.
In another fraud case report-
ed last week, Garrett L. Grey, 23,
was arrested for check fraud.
He allegedly forged more
than $521 in checks belonging to
Marylou Cole, an 84-year-old N.
Lowder St. resident he lived with
for a period.
Mr. Grey is charged with
exploiting the elderly and four
counts of forgery. All are felo-
nies.

Teen swipes wallet from elderly man


A 14-year-old male from Glen
St. Mary was arrested last week
in the strong-arm robbery of an
elderly neighbor July 19.
Issac Dixon, 78, told police
the youth, which he knew, was
accompanied by another young
man, possibly a 17-year-old
from Sanderson, when they ap-
proached him sitting in his front
yard on South Thompson Road
about 12:30 pm.
They asked for change of a $5
bill, and when the victim took five
$1 bills out of his wallet, the 14-
year-old grabbed the wallet and
ran away as the second youth fol-
lowed, according to Deputy Ben
Anderson's report.
Mr. Dixon found the wallet
nearby, but it no longer contained
his $120.
Deputy Anderson spoke with
the 14-year-old boy's mother,
who said should would attempt
to locate him.
The officer, while returning
from the sheriffs office to re-
trieve photos of the suspects for


identification by the victim, was
flagged down by the mother, who
had her son with her.
He was arrested and Mr.
Dixon soon identified the 14-
year-old in a photo line-up as the
youth who robbed him. He could
not positively identify the second
teen, however.
Deputy Anderson noted that
the photo was more than one
year old.
The suspect was taken to
county jail pending a decision by
Juvenile Justice regarding deten-
tion, the officer said.
In other property crimes re-
ported this week:
STwo dogs running wild in the
area of Palmetto Place in Sand-
erson killed more than 15 sheep
and goats belonging to Nicholas
DeLongis the morning of July
20.
Mr. DeLongis checked on
the animals about 8:00 am and
observed two pit bulls mauling
them. He retrieved a rifle and
shot one of the dogs.


Mr. DeLongis said the dead
dog had a collar but no identifi-
cation tags.
Tomy Byrd, 41, of Jackson-
ville was arrested for shoplifting
a case of beer from the Macclen-
ny Walmart about noon July 24.
A background check revealed the
suspect had an outstanding war-
rant from Jacksonville.
Two residential burglaries
in Sanderson were reported this
week on Thomas Sweat Road and
Beech Street, July 21 and 23, re-
spectively.
James Doss of 8239 Thomas
Sweat Rd. said sometime be-
tween 4:45 am when he left for
work and 4:30 pm when he re-
turned, someone had unscrewed
the lock on his back door to gain
entry into the home.
Deputy Jason Bryan's report
noted no damage other than to
the door.
The second burglary took
place at Bessie Crump's unlocked
home at 13923 Beech St. during


the night.
The victim said she went to
bed at 1:oo am and woke about
6.5 hours later to find several
personal items and medication
missing.
The pilfered property included
gold jewelry valued at $180, $35
in cash and 16 prescription pills
of tramadol hydrochloride.
Ronald Stewart of 13863 Co-
lumbia St. in Sanderson reported
his unlocked 1998 Chevy pick-up
burglarized overnight July 22-
23. Missing were his cell phone,
watch and knife from the truck's
center console.
The property was valued at
$160.
The following evening,
Amanda Irwin's 1994 Ford Mus-
tang was burglarized at 8700
Ben Rowe Circle. The car was left
unlocked and missing were Ms.
Irwin's music player and wallet.
The property was valued at
$130.

New NEFSH partnership


A new one-year partnership
between Northeast Florida State
Hospital and the University of
Florida's Department of Psychia-
try Residency Program will give
third- and fourth-year psychiat-
ric residents firsthand experience
with the challenges associated
with serious and persistent men-
tal illness.
Residents will work at the hos-
pital three days a week and each
resident will rotate a minimum
of one month. A psychiatric resi-
dency takes four years.
NEFSH has had a contract
with the university for 20 years
that provides residents with ex-
perience in grand rounds, which
consist of presenting the medi-
cal problems and treatment of a
particular patient to an audience
consisting of doctors, residents,
and medical students.
Now residents will have
the opportunity, among other
things, to participate in medical
staff meetings relating to clini-
cal care, learn how to lead mul-
tidisciplinary treatment team
meetings, conduct admissions
evaluations and discharge evalu-
ations under the supervision of
an NEFSH attending physician;
serve as the primary treatment
provider for up to 10 individuals;
contribute testimony for invol-
untary commitments; and serve
on professional committees that
will expose them to financial, le-
gal and regulatory issues relating
to clinical delivery care systems.
"These learning experiences
will help residents in career plan-
ning, and we are hopeful that
their time working at NEFSH will
foster in them consideration of
employment here," said Joseph
Infantino, NEFSH administra-


tor. "This is a win-win situation
for the university and for us."
Dr. Jacqueline Hobbs, director
of residency training said: "Our
residents are very excited about
this opportunity. I hope this will
lead some of our residents to pur-
sue careers at NEFSH."
NEFSH is the only Depart-
ment of Children and Families
treatment facility in Florida to
hold the prestigious teaching hos-
pital status with the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services.

To the citizens of Baker County,
I have attended numerous commission
meetings over the course of the last year.
I spoke in opposition to the proposed
millage rate increase last year know-
ing the difficulty families were facing in
a failing economy. My concern over the
family budget kept me working to stay
informed on local issues. In my house-
hold every penny counts.
I had strong convictions I could be
instrumental in helping to being about
changes that would reduce the size of government and
make it more efficient. I decided to run against a very well respected
incumbent. At that time there were no other candidates. My heart was in
doing better for Baker County.
I qualified by petition to run for County Commissioner for District 4 in
order to save the $1,766.22 knowing my funds were limited and it would
be a difficult campaign. I am running a conservative campaign because
I am a true conservative in all aspects. I believe in fiscal responsibility
and will work diligently to be a good steward of county funds. I believe
in spending less than you make no matter how much you earn. Deficit
spending and using your reserves will eventually destroy a family budget
and a county surplus.
If elected to this office, I will use the same judgement to dispense your
funds. I believe in limited government, less regulation and lower taxes.
I will bring honesty, dignity and fairness to this office. Help me work
for you! Vote conservative, vote Chris Rhoden for County Commissioner
District 4!

"I predict future happiness for American's if they can prevent the gov-
ernment from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of
taking care of them." Thomas lefferson

Suspect escapes from patrol car


A Macclenny man amassed
a slew of charges after escaping
from a sheriffs deputy patrol car
and leading a K-9 search team
through north Macclenny during
the early morning hours of July
25.
Kenneth W. Barron III, 20,
faces charges of trespassing,
resisting an officer without vio-
lence, escape, which is a felony;
and two counts of battery.
The latter charges stems from
the suspect allegedly striking
Carrissa Rouseau and his 14-
year-old sister, all with the same
Deerwood Circle address.
Ms. Rouseau reported that the
suspect came home drunk, yell-
ing and throwing things around
the residence before striking both
of the females and fleeing out the
rear of the residence about 1:30
am.
An "extremely intoxicated"
Mr. Barron was located on the
roof of an adjacent residence,
according to Deputy Shawn Bis-
hara's report.
The suspect claimed he was
struck in the head by Ms. Rou-
seau during the altercation that
began with an argument between


the siblings and led to him pull-
ing the sister's hair and pushing
the women.
Mr. Barron was soon arrested
and placed in Deputy Bishara's
patrol car. The officer said that
due to the hot temperature and
lack of AC in the vehicle, he rolled
down the back windows, which
also have caged bars.
He returned from talking with
witnesses about to minutes later
to find the suspect not in the ve-
hicle and the vehicle door cracked
open. The deputy said the door
had not been opened by himself
or the other officer at the scene at
any point.
A K-9 squad from Baker Cor-
rectional reported to the area
about 3:40 am to track the sus-
pect. The trail, which included
bare footprints, took them west
of the patrol vehicle and south
toward East North Boulevard,
then north to a wooded area and
the rear of a residence on Fiesta
Court.
After going through a hunt-
ing lease property, a home under
construction on Red Fox Way,
the Fox Ridge subdivision and
back to Deerwood Circle, the K-9


lost the trail.
About that time, a resident of
East North Boulevard called po-
lice to report someone sleeping
in his garage. That's where two
deputies located Mr. Barron and
took him into custody.
In other incidents involving
violence this past week:
Lee Crews of Sanderson
reported to police that he was
beaten by Randy Chaney during
the early morning hours of June
25 after he yelled at the suspect
and his girlfriend to stop arguing
because he was trying to sleep.
Mr. Crews advised Deputy
Rodney Driggers he was in the
bathroom of his Cow Pen Road
residence about 3:45 am when
the fight occurred and that he fell
and struck the toilet, causing it to
break.
The officer said the victim
sustained cuts to his right eye
and arm, and abrasions to his left
arm.
Mr. Chaney, who shares the
same address, wasn't immedi-
atelylocated, but a battery charge
was filed against him with the
State Attorney's Office, state's the
deputy's report.


Battery charges were also
filed against a 17-year-old female
from Glen St. Mary for alleg-
edly striking Tiffany Ratliff and
Thomas Ahrens at a residence on
US 90 shortly after 2:30 am July
25.
The suspect left before Deputy
Daryl Mobley's arrival and at-
tempts to contact her were un-
successful.
Carl Peil, 45, of Macclenny
was arrested for resisting an of-
fice without violence the morning
of July 23 after yelling profanities
at Deputy Brandon Kiser, ignor-
ing the officer's orders to calm
himself and refusing to answer
questions regarding a distur-
bance between the suspect and
his girlfriend.
The girlfriend, Lori Jacobs,
stated later that she and Mr.
Peil were in a verbal altercation
and she left the North 6th Street
residence with her two children,
ages 9 and 4, fearing that the ar-
gument could become violent.
The Department of Children
and Families was notified of the
incident due to the children's
presence.

No injuries in three-vehicle crash
The 2006 Toyota Scion pictured above on its side and driven by Tiffany Edge of Jacksonville was struck while at-
tempting to turn west on Lowder Street. Ms. Edge had been traveling north on South 5th Street before failing to
yield the right-of-way to John Pearce of Sanderson, who was heading south on S. 5th St. in the red pick-up truck
when the collision occurred June 21 about 4:00 pm. The impact sent the car into a 2003 Pontiac driven by April
Davis of Sanderson.The accident report from sheriff's Deputy Koty Crews did not indicate whether Ms. Edge was
ticketed. He said at the scene no one was seriously injured.

JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
The Land Planing Agency
[LPA] disagreed squarely with
county staff last week in its ap-
proval of plans for a 13-lot sub-
division north of Sanderson that
includes two lots on an unpaved
road.
New subdivisions with dirt
roads have been all but outlawed
since 2005, when the Baker
County Commission adopted
rules requiring that after a par-
cel is divided once, any further
divisions result in a mandate for
paved roads.
The regulation stemmed from
the high cost of maintaining the
county's roughly 400 miles of
dirt roads and the difficulties
such roads can pose for emer-
gency vehicles.
The 13-lot Calkins Branch
subdivision is located on roughly
1oo acres owned by Longbranch
Farms LLC at the southeast cor-
ner of CR 127 and Hamp Regis-
ter Road about 5 miles north of
Sanderson.
Longbranch Farms requested
a variance from the LPA board
to allow two lots on the unpaved
and county-maintained Hamp
Register Road. The lo-acre tracts
abut Calkins Creek, lay entirely
in the loo-year flood plain and
contain some wetlands.
"What is not in compliance is
they'd be new lots in a subdivi-
sion on an unpaved road," Plan-


The Town of Glen St. Mary
conditionally agreed to purchase
a new lawn mower during its reg-
ular meeting the evening of July
20, and before adjournment set a
budget workshop for August 17.
The town will buy a SCAG
model mower from Macclenny
Mower and Saw for $7059, and
Mayor Juanice Padgett said she
wants to pay half in this budget
year and half after October.
The purchase pends confirma-
tion that the unit is commercial
grade and air cooled. If not, the
town will buy one from Macclen-
ny Cycle and Marine for $6999.
Glen St. Mary utilized a new
bidding process to secure quotes
from the four local lawn mower
dealers. Basic specs were set by
the town using advice from its


ning Director Ed Preston told the
board during its July 22 meet-
ing.
The director recommended
denial of the variance request
because it wasn't consistent with
the county's land development


regulations
[LDRs], nor did
it meet the crite-
ria for variance
approval.
Mercantile
Bank President
and Longbranch
Farms partner
John Kennedy
agreed that
under current
regulations, the
Calkins Creek
lots are pro-
hibited. But, he


The LDRs ar

Baker C


argued, the expense of paving a
half-mile of Hamp Register Road
would make the project finan-
cially unfeasible.
"In today's economy, we're
trying to get to a price point that
people can afford," he said.
The cost of paving could be as
much as $500,ooo, estimated
LPA chairman C.J. Thompson.
He and Glen St. Mary Mayor
Juanice Padgett, who serves as a
non-voting member on the LPA
board, said they feared approval
of the variance, despite it's failure
to meet county rules, could set a
harmful precedent.
"The LDRs are pretty plain on
this and the county commission's
policy has been pretty plain on


two maintenance workers, then
the vendors themselves were
invited to submit details of their
units.
The goal was to level off what
the dealers were offering as much
as feasible, everything from me-
chanical specs to cost of parts
and warranties.
Other bids were submitted by
NE Florida Power Equipment at
$7199 and Macclenny Equipment
and Tractor Sales at $7615.
The vote was unanimous mi-
nus Councilman Charles Reneau,
who was absent.
The council will meet an hour
before its normal 7:00 pm start-
ing time on August 17 for an over-
view of the budget it must adopt
by the end of September.
Barring unforeseen develop-


this," said Mr. Preston in refer-
ence to the county's aversion
to more residential lots on dirt
roads.
Nonetheless, board member
Larry Porterfield's motion to
approve the measure based on
"common sense"
passed unani-
mously.
re pretty Had the
andt variance been
and te denied, the two
mis n' lots would not
missions be eligible for
cn pretty building per-
mits.
When asked
Ed after the meet-
Ed Preston
S..... .. Director ingif the board's
decision could
Make it difficult
to legally deny
future requests for subdivisions
with unpaved roads, Mr. Preston
said: "The LPA acted within the
code by determining that [Long-
branch Farm's] request was not
contrary to the public's interest
and where literal enforcement
was not reasonable. I expect the
LPA to be consistent with that
position going forward."
The same evening the LPA de-
nied Wilma Rowe's appeal of Mr.
Preston's decision that her 5.72-
acre property on Bob Kirkland
Road north of Macclenny can't
be split up any more and still
remain eligible for building per-
mits without road paving.
Ms. Rowe's parcel, which is
zoned for one unit per acre and


ments, Glen St. Mary expects to
hold spending close to or at this
year's level.
The town is still awaiting word
from the Department of Com-
munity Affairs on its request for
a $700,000 grant to fund a water
system north of US 90.
Mayor Padgett noted that
Glen scored just under last year's
top point rating, the basis for
grant awards. However, the point
system has been revised and the
competition for CDBG grants by
cash-strapped counties and mu-
nicipalities is expected to be stiff.


contains her home, began as
roughly a third of an acre in 1984,
but has since been added to and
divided several times.
The last division and sale in
2006 constituted the one divi-
sion before subdivision rules
kick-in and require, among other
things, roads be paved, Mr. Pres-
ton said.
Ms. Rowe hoped to sell a por-
tion of her land to pay for mount-
ing medical bills.
"I have two major surgeries to
have done," she told the board.
Mr. Preston advised that the
property, if the appeal was grant-
ed, would be eligible for permits
for four new residences with
access from a private unpaved
easement off the unpaved Bob
Kirkland Road.
"We're making the problem
worse in the county and ask that
you deny it," Mr. Preston said.
After denying her appeal,
board members recommended
that Ms. Rowe apply for a vari-
ance should she secure a buyer.
"I think there's two many un-
knowns and the route of coming
back when she has a buyer and
a better plan might work bet-
ter," said board member Allison
Broughton.

BAKER COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD

Drops property tax rate


The school board unanimous-
ly approved its 2010 budget and
property tax rate the evening of
July 27.
The roughly $54.3 million
spending plan is $773,821 less
than last year's budget and uses
about $4.7 million from reserves
to balance expenditures with
available revenue.
The board also reduced its as-


sociated property tax, or millage
rate, to 7.872, which is equal to
about $7.87 per $1000 of taxable
property value.
That means a $150,000 resi-
dential property with no home-
stead exemption would pay about
$1180 in school district taxes.
The rate is expected to raise
about $600,000 less than the
current millage rate.

Origins of honey, and its taste


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Part two of a series on bee-
keeping and honey.

The taste is exquisite. So is
the color. The flavor and color of
Orange Blossom Honey is lighter
and more delicate than other
types.
"You can literally smell the
flowers when you taste it," said
Sanderson beekeeper John
Pierce.
Of the different types of honey
that his hives yield, his customers
rave most over the orange blos-
som honey.
He recently gave out samples
of four different types of his hon-
ey at the Baker County Historic
Jail Centennial celebration.
The flavor of the honey is di-
rectly related to the source of
"flow" or flower nectar the bees
have access to," he said. "In this
area, the orange trees bloomed
earlier in the summer. Gallberry
bushes bloomed after that. I took
my hives down to Daytona a few
weeks ago because that's where a
good flower source was blooming
next."
Charlotte Johns, who attend-
ed the historic jail celebration,
loved all the honey samples but
her eyes really lit up when the
pale gold orange blossom hit her
tongue.
"Oh my, that's spectacular,"
she said. "It's the purity of it that
is so marvelous. My grandmother
always made a honey and lemon
juice elixir for sore throat. We've
passed it down in the family. My
own kids swear by it."
Ms. Johns happily went home
with a large jar filled with OBH.
She wasn't the only one. Traf-
fic around Mr. Pierce's "honey
truck" that day was steady.
"It started when I was a young
boy, although I've only actu-
ally been directly involved in it
for two years, said Mr. Pierce,
speaking about his passion for
beekeeping and honey.
"There was a local man here
that everyone called 'Honeybee.'
He sold honey and he used to
take me into the orange groves
around here to see the bees busy
pollinating the trees," he said.
"That sparked my interest in a
big way."
Two years ago, Mr. Pierce
was working in the tile industry,
which suffered from the current
economic downturn. He found
himself with unexpected time on
his hands and could finally begin
to focus on beekeeping and honey
production.
Suddenly, his lifelong desire
became reality.

What honey is
There is actually an entire
field of study devoted to honey,
a tongue-twisting term known as
mellissopalinology.
Of the 20,000 species of bee
world-wide, only Apis mellifera,
or what's known to laymen as the
common honey bee, produces
the honey consumed by humans.
Honey is the bee's main source
of food and energy, especially
during winter and other months
of the year when flowers are not
in bloom.
Raw honey is a remarkable
substance. It varies in appear-
ance from nearly colorless to
dark brown. It contains all the
essential minerals for sustain-
ing life, including Vitamins A,
B-complex, C, D, E, and K; beta-
carotene, minerals and enzymes.
Because of its nutrition and med-
ical properties, it is known as a
"nutraceutical" substance.

How bees make honey
When flowers are blooming,
bees remove nectar from the
blossoms, sucking it up through a
special tube in their tongues. Nec-
tar is stored in the "honey stom-
ach," a pouch in the bee's abdo-


men. Enzymes in
the honey pouch
convert the nectar
into fructose and
glucose, a process
known as inver-
sion.
Back in the
hive, bees regur-
gitate the inverted
nectar, now in the
form of honey,
feeding it directly
to other bees
or storing it in
the hexagonally
shaped wax cells
of the comb. The
heat inside the
hive causes any
moisture pres-
ent to evaporate.
The cells are then
capped with more
wax secreted from
special glands in
the bee's body.

Types of Honey
There are
beekeeping op-
erations all across
Florida which of-
fer a wide variety
of honey due to
the state's botani-
cal diversity. For


instance, the bees
managed by Cross Creek Honey
Company in the town of Inter-
lachen have access to thousands
of acres of St. Johns River Water
Management District land, where
trees and shrubs indigenous to
Florida grow.
There are black gum trees,
blackberry bushes, citrus trees,
gallberry bushes, palmettos,
cabbage palms, golden rod, and
Spanish needle. Each source
produces a honey with a distinct
character.
Stands of White Tupelo trees
are found only in limited areas
of the Florida Panhandle and
blooming season is short. Consid-
ered one of the premium honeys
produced in the nation, it can be
scarce and more expensive than
other types.

Honey: Healing and shelf-life
The medicinal properties of
honey have been known since
ancient times. As a natural anti-
septic, it has been used to treat
burns, wounds and ulcers and to
minimize scarring. Its extremely
low water content inhibits the
growth of bacteria. Because of its
remarkable chemical composi-
tion, if kept at a moderate tem-
perature, in clean, humidity-free
storage, it can last for decades,
even centuries.
Or longer, according to The
National Honey Board.
The NHB reports that viable
honey stored in sealed contain-

ers has been found in the pyra-
mids and is over 5,000 years old.
Many ancient cultures used it in
embalming and preserving the
dead.

Economic impact
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services monitors the
state's beekeeping and honey
production. According to its web-
site, 17 million pounds of honey
are produced in Florida each
year. The state's honey industry
is consistently ranked among the
top five in the nation with an an-
nual worth of $13 million.

The Honey Standard
The state of Florida has led
the way in establishing what is
known as the "Standard of Iden-
tity" for honey, the first of its type
in the nation.
FACS and the Florida Bee-
keepers Association drafted
guidelines in 2009 to determine
the identity and purity of honey
sold in and from the state of
Florida. The guidelines were the
first regulations prohibiting any
additives, chemicals or adulter-
ants in honey that is produced,
processed or sold in Florida.
According to FACS commis-
sioner Charles Bronson: "We
want to assure consumers that
the product that they are buy-
ing is pure. Too often in the past,
honey from outside sources has
been cut with water or sugar, and


sometimes even contaminated
with insecticides or antibiotics."


S- --:
for County Commissioner District 4

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.
A vote for Michael Conner is a vote

Siblings win forestry pageant

State crowns mean advocacy, trip to nationals


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Sisters Amanda and Faith Finley of Macclenny took top awards at
the Miss Florida Forestry State Scholarship pageant held in Jackson-
ville July 17.
Amanda, 19, was crowned Miss Florida Forestry State Queen and
Faith, 16, was crowned Teen Miss Florida Forestry State Queen. Both
girls won in their respective divisions during the county pageant pre-
liminaries several months ago.
Their achievement is noteworthy. This is the first time girls from
Baker County have competed in the state pageant and the first time in
the history of the pageant that sisters have won simultaneously.
The Press interviewed the Finley sisters last week at the Macclenny
Woman's Club during a photo shoot.
The Press: "Was this pageant different from any others you've com-
peted in?"
Amanda: "It certainly was for me, because my younger sister was
competing also."
Faith: "Amanda is an old hand at this, but I'm pretty new to it. She
really wanted me to have a positive experience."
The Press: 'Why was so much of your attention on your sister?"
Amanda: "It was Faith's very first major pageant and throughout the
entire thing, my focus was on her. I was more stressed out for her than
myself because I wanted her to do well."
Faith: "Amanda was so nervous about me getting through the inter-
view portion of the competition. It's very important, about 75 percent
of your total score."
Amanda: "That's so true. When Faith's interview was over, it was
like a huge load was lifted off me."
The Press: "What did they ask each of you during the interviews?"
Amanda: "I was asked if there was a possibility of a woman presi-
dent in the near future to which I said yes, indeed. Look at the women
in politics today Hillary Clinton, Sara Palin, Michelle Obama and
how involved they already are.
"The judges also asked my opinion of the Arizona immigration law
situation. I said all impacts of that, both positive and negative, should
be carefully considered."
Faith: "I was asked what I would change about myself if I could and
my answer was I would work hard on not judging people before I get to
know them. They also asked me what I thought the biggest problem in
the public educational system is. I think one is students who get prefer-
ential treatment because teachers like them better than other students.
It unfairly influences grades and things like that."
The Press: "Were you backstage, watching the teen part of the com-
petition?"
Amanda: Yes. "My heart started racing when Faith made it into the
top five. Then they announced fourth runner-up, then third. She was
still out there and I was having a fit. When they announced her the
winner, I started to cry."
The Press: "What were the other people backstage doing?"
Amanda: 'They were trying to help me calm down. They didn't want
me going out on stage with mascara running down my cheeks. They
kept saying, 'Amanda, you're on next! You've got to stop crying!'"
The Press: "As forestry queens, what are your platform subjects
you'll be promoting during your speaking engagements?"
Amanda: "Mine is adoption awareness."
Faith: "Childhood obesity is mine."
The Press: "You will be making lots of appearances over the next
year. Is forestry a subject you must been well versed in?"
Amanda: "Yes, we will be making numerous appearances in the

Banana pudding: a mainstay in the south


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Banana pudding. Along with
pecan pie and peach cobbler, it's
one of the major players in the
line up of traditional southern
desserts.
This simple combination of
bananas, vanilla wafers, pudding
and whipped topping is a deriva-
tion on an English dessert called
trifle made with custard, sponge
cake and fruit.
Banana pudding has long
graced dining tables south of the
Mason-Dixon line. Most south-
erners would agree no Sunday
dinner, church picnic or outdoor
barbecue would be quite the
same without it.
Baker Countians certainly eat
their fair share and area restau-
rants definitely capitalize on the
dessert. When a meeting, party
or public function calls for a ca-
tered meal, banana pudding is
likely to be on the menu.
The Press recently asked some
local cooks to share tips and tech-
niques of their personal recipes.
Virginia Oliver of Macclennyis
not a fan of instant pudding and
doesn't use it when she makes
banana pudding.
"I don't use the instant pud-
ding because I don't care for the
taste. When I make banana pud-
ding I use the pudding mix you
cook on the stove. It isn't that
much more effort and to me it's
so much better," she said.
Cecil Davis of Sanderson uses
cooked pudding made with evap-
orated milk. He likes to combine
his pudding with Cool Whip,
blending until smooth and fluffy.
"It gives the entire pudding
a lighter, creamier texture," he
said.
Some of the richest banana
pudding around can be found
at Fat Jack's Smokestack Res-
taurant in Baldwin. First and
foremost, the restaurant sells
barbecue, but its menu features
a locally famous dessert known
as "Dreamy Banana Pudding."
The ingredient list for this delec-
table concoction includes cream
cheese.
Tony Palmeri, who lives in
Baker County, is a familiar sight
at Fat Jack's. He often helps out
at the restaurant and doesn't
hesitate to brag about the house
dessert.
'There's a reason it was named
dreamy," he said. "There are cus-
tomers who come in here just to
eat our banana pudding."
Florence Donkers is one of Fat

Jack's owners.
"We experimented for a while
trying different recipes and my
family got to be the guinea pigs,"
she said. "We finally decided on
this recipe and it's been a suc-
cess."

Methods of preparation
From Southern Living Maga-
zine test kitchens to cooking
maven Paula Deen to the
Jello company, ev-
eryone seems to
have a take on
making the
best version
of banana
pudding.
A
banana
pudding
can be
prepared
by no-cook
methods
using instant
and commercially
available ingredients.
These puddings are usu-
ally chilled in the refrigerator.

or a meringue, which is usually
used for the baked versions.
Cookies, both commercial and
homebaked are used.
Some adventurous cooks even
add a few dolops of bourbon or
amaretto for a banana pudding
with a little something extra.

Three types of toppings


S*I


A typical banana pudding is
garnished with a generous layer
of whipped cream. Real whipped
cream, though delicious, starts to
break down and lose its structure
fairly quickly.
However, some purists won't
use anything but real whipped
cream, which is optimal for taste
if the

cream, desirable if the pudding
needs to be made ahead of time.
It keeps longer in the refrigera-
tor, too.
Banana pudding can also be
made with a meringue topping
made from egg whites whipped
with sugar. The pudding is baked
for about 12 minutes in the oven
to set the meringue.

pudding is likely to be consumed
quickly. It's certainly healthier
because it's natural.
Whipped toppings, such as
Cool Whip, have become com-
monplace. They are made with
hydrogenated oil, high fructose
syrup and contain a large volume
of air. They hold their structure
much longer than real whipped


The cookies
Nilla Wafers, made by Nabis-
co, are without a doubt the pre-
ferred cookie for banana pud-
ding. Interestingly, they don't
contain any real vanilla. Since
the 1960s, the cookies have been
flavored with a synthetic vanilla
product called vanillin.

They soak up the moisture
from the pudding and become
soft, almost to the point of being
gummy, but the texture seems to
be a hallmark of the dessert.
Cooks who like to go the extra
mile can bake their vanilla cook-
ies from scratch. It's reported
that home baked vanilla wafers
remain somewhat crisp, even af-
ter several days in the refrigera-
tor.
Celebrities love banana pud-
ding too. Best-selling author
Maya Angelou once prepared her
"Man-Winning Banana Pudding"
on an episode of the Oprah Win-
frey show. It's made from scratch,
oven-baked and topped with me-
ringue. The Press has provided

remind all citizens to use precau-
tions against mosquito-bourn
illnesses.
DOH works with partner
agencies, including the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, mosquito control
agencies, and state universities
year-round to monitor for the
presence of illnesses carried by
mosquitoes including West Nile
virus infections, Eastern Equine
Encephalitis, St. Louis encepha-
litis, malaria and dengue.
Although 50 horses have con-
tracted Eastern Equine Encepha-
litis (EEEV) in Florida as of July
17, no cases have been confirmed
in Baker County, said Terry Gra-
ham, the health department's en-
vironmental health director.
A vaccine is available for
horses against EEEV and horse
owners should contact their vet-
erinarian for questions about its
use.
The Baker County Health
Department has run out of free
mosquito repellant and none will
be available for the foreseeable
future, said Mr. Graham.
DOH advises the public to re-
main diligent in protecting them-
selves from mosquito bites by fol-
lowing the "5 D's," which are:
Dusk and Dawn Avoid be-
ing outdoors when mosquitoes
are biting.
Dress Wear clothing that
covers most of your skin.
DEET Use repellents
containing DEET (N,N-diethyl-
meta-toluamide, or N,N-diethyl-
3-methylbenzamide). Picaridin,
oil of lemon eucalyptus, IR3535
and permethrin are other repel-
lent options.
Drainage Check around
your home to rid the area of
standing water, which is where
mosquitoes can lay their eggs.
Using repellent can help protect
against being bitten by a mosqui-
to. Follow these tips for correct
repellent use:
Read label directions care-
fully for the approved usage be-
fore applying a repellent to skin.
Some repellents are not suitable
for children. According to the
CDC, mosquito repellents con-
taining oil of lemon eucalyptus
should not be used on children
under the age of 3 years. DEET
is not recommended on children
younger than 2 months old.
Products with concentra-
tions of up to 30 percent DEET
are generally recommended.


Mosquito repellents containing
picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyp-
tus, or IR3535 can also be applied
directly on skin. Permethrin can
be used on clothing.
Apply insect repellent to ex-
posed skin, or onto clothing, but
not under clothing.
Infants should be kept in-
doors or mosquito netting should
be used over carriers when mos-
quitoes are present.
DOH also offers these tips for
eliminating mosquito breeding
sites around your home:
Clean out eaves, troughs and
gutters.
Remove old tires or drill holes
in those used in playgrounds so
water can drain.
Turn over or remove empty
pots.
Pick up all beverage contain-
ers and cups after use.
Check tarps on boats or other
equipment that may collect wa-
ter.
Pump out bilges on boats.
Replace water in birdbaths
and pet or other animal feeding
dishes at least once a week.
Change water in plant trays,
including hanging plants, at least
once a week.
Remove vegetation or ob-
structions in drainage ditches
that prevent the flow of water.
Most people who become
sick from mosquitoes have mild
symptoms like headache, fever,
dizziness and fatigue, but more
severe symptoms are possible.
DOH urges anyone with se-
vere symptoms to consult their
primary care physician or seek
immediate medical care.
Physicians should contact
their county health department
if they suspect an individual may
have a mosquito-borne illness.
DOH laboratories provide test-
ing services for physicians treat-
ing patients with clinical signs of
mosquito-borne disease.
For more information on mos-
quito-borne illnesses, visit DOH's
Environmental Health Web site
at http://www.doh.state.fl.us/
Environment/medicine/arbovi-
ral/index.html or call your local
county health department.
Monitoring wild bird deaths
can help officials track the spread
of some mosquito-borne diseas-
es. Anyone who discovers a dead
bird is encouraged to report it
on the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's web-
site at www.MyFWC.com/bird/.

Former Orange Park coach to


lead Wildcat baseball in 2011


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
New Wildcat baseball coach Fred Matri-
cardi has big shoes to fill in taking over for
Coach John Staples, who led the Cats for
over a decade.
But the enthusiastic former Orange Park
Raider coach is ready for the challenge.
'There's a good tradition here," said Mat-
ricardi. "When I played ball for Fernandina
Beach I had some great battles with Jami
Rodgers and Dale Johnson and the rest of
the Wildcats."
Matricardi graduated from Fernan- Fred l\
dina Beach before going on to play ball at
Central Florida Community College and Lambeth
University in Tennessee. He went on to play minor
league ball with the Dubois County Dragons in Hun-
tingtonberg, Indiana.
Matricardi will meet with his players at a "get to
know you session," on Thursday at 6:00 pm in the
BCHS cafeteria.
At the meeting he will tell them that he expects
them to work hard six days a week and lay out his
plans for the team.


latr


Matricardi realizes that he is stepping
into a program with "higher expectations"
than at Orange Park High.
"At Orange Park it is about football
S and basketball, but there's a lot of support
here," he said.
Matricardi was an assistant for five years
with the Raiders before taking over as head
coach three years ago. He went 11-15 last
season, but the Raiders were three outs
away from the district crown.
His strong points are his development of
young players and he is proud of the num-
icardi ber of Raiders who have gone on to play at
the collegiate level.
He still has ties to Orange Park High.
His wife is the head coach of girls basketball and
expects to challenge for the state title this season.
One of her players is the area Player of the Year.
"Hey, its tough being the second best coach in the
house," he quipped.
He hopes that with the talented players he has on
his roster, he will turn that around quickly as well as
start a new era for the Wildcats.


Dawson only player inducted


FAT LADY
ROBERT GERARD
It's nice to see a former A&M
Rattler make it into the Hall of
Fame.
Former Expo and Cub An-
dre Dawson was inducted last
weekend into the Hall along with
manager Whitey Herzog.
Dawson was the only player
inducted this year. Enshired
along with Herzog were umpire
Doug Harvey, announcer Jon
Miller and sportswriter Bill Mad-
den.
Dawson is the second Expo
to enter the Hall. He joins Gary
Carter as the only Expo player in
Cooperstown.
Dawson was discovered in
Tallahassee by scout Mel Dider.
He made an instant impact with
Montreal and was Rookie of the
Year in 1977. He went on to hit
438 homers, had 2,774 hits and
the speedy outfielder stole 314
bases.


He plugged Tim Raines, the
Expo he helped pull out of a
cocaine addiction, and Cub re-
liever Lee Smith in his induction
speech.
I was a big fan of Dawson and
the Expos and he is a charismatic
guy who deserves to have his face
on a bronze plaque.
Anonymous letters can really
put a flyin a guys morning coffee.
Ask Jeremy Foley, Athletic Direc-
tor for the University of Florida.
Foley received a letter claim-
ing that former Gator star and
Pittsburgh Steeler first round
pick Maurkice Pouncey received
$1oo,ooo from a sports agent
during the time between the loss
to Alabama in the SEC Champi-
onship and the Sugar Bowl.
UF started an internal investi-
gation and notified the NCAA.
Pouncey, meanwhile, denied
that it ever happened.
How does this sit with the
NCAA? Who knows. It is, after all
an anonymous letter.
If Pouncey talked to an agent,
that would be a slap on the hand
by the NCAA. But accepting


money is another matter.
However, Foley seems con-
fident that the university will
come out of the matter without
sanctions.
Ironically, it was Clemson
coach Dabo Sweeny who really
got to the heart of the matter.
"You can talk to kids," said
Sweeny, "but you can't legislate
integrity."

Camp to

begin for

Jaguars
The Jaguars are generating a
lot of interest this year.
Season ticket sales are up by
almost 13,000 so far. Many see
the 2010-11 season as make or
break year for the team.
Head Coach Jack Del Rio and
Quarterback David Garrard are
both facing the kind of win-or-
you're-gone pressure that they
haven't seen in recent years.
Fans are a little antsy about
wanting a winning team, and
with numbers down, the talk of a
possible relocation to Los Ange-
les has pushed some fans off the
fence and into their wallets, as
evidenced by the surge in ticket
sales.
It hasn't hurt a bit that owner
Wayne Weaver lowered the price
of season tickets either.
The start of training camp is
right around the corner and the
Jaguars are looking at thousands
of people regularly attending
camp. On average, 1200 to 2000
fans fill the practice bleachers.
They know that training camp is
the best time to get pictures and
autographs of their favorite play-
ers.
So if you're going, be sure to
bring a camera, a sharpie and
something to have autographed.
There are also training camp spe-
cific concessions to be had.
Training camp August 3-8
will be from 10:45 am to 7:00
pm, and August 10-13 from 9:oo
am to 4:15 pm. A scrimmage is
scheduled for August 8.


Parent meeting

for football team
There will be a mandatory
meeting for the parents of all
football players this Thursday,
July 29, at 6:30 pm in the BCHS
cafeteria.
The meeting will cover a wide
variety of issues and all parents
are strongly urged to attend.
Coach Ryan Sulkowski and his
staff will be on hand to provide
parents with news, schedules
and plenty of information as the
Wildcats get ready for the big
push toward the start of the new
football season.
For more information parents
can call 259-6286.
