Teenager

sought for

a drive-by

shooting
Police have issued a warrant
for a west Jacksonville teenager
for the drive-by shooting and
wounding of a Macclenny teen
just after midnight on Septem-
ber 12.
The warrant charges Mar-
quise (Saint) Yates, 17, with
attempted murder of the local
youth and aggravated assault
on the
victim's
cousin who
was stand-
ing nearby
when 4-5
shots rang
out off
Quail Lane
in the west
city that
morning.
The
victim,
17-year- Marquise Yates
old Carlos
Griffett Jr., was struck by bul-
lets in the chest, shoulder and
back all of them missing vital
areas. He was released from
Shands Jacksonville before
noon that day.
Sheriffs investigator Steve
Harvey said the shooting was
likely the result of an argument
the previous afternoon over a
female. Yates was not involved
in that confrontation that took
place in the same neighbor-
hood, but police believe others
who were with him at the time
Jacksonville and enlisted him
as an ally because he is known
to always carry a gun.
"It's like they went back to
one of the crime-ridden neigh-
borhoods in Jacksonville and
brought it out here to settle the
score," said the investigator.
He said it took most of the
day Sunday for police to re-
trace the series of events lead-
ing up to the shooting, and
learn the identity of Yates, who
has a criminal record for grand
theft auto.
Maj. Chuck Brannan, chief
investigator, said he interviewed
the suspect's mother in Jack-
sonville and she said she hadn't
seen him in several days.
One of the occupants of the
car from which shots were fired
about 12:05 is Griffett's half-
sister, age 16, who told Sheriff
Joey Dobson she was unaware
that Yates had a gun. Also in the
vehicle were her boyfriend Leon
(Ghost) Brooks, 18, and anoth-
er 16-year-old male, a cousin
to the half-sister. All are from

re 'reluctantly' accepts Fox plea

families shattered by '09 robbery turned murder


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
An apparent robbery gone
bad on April 1, 2009 in Sand-
erson changed forever the lives
of two Baker County men and
their families.
Sterling F. Howell was
stabbed to death and his neigh-
bor Aaron M. Fox will spend
roughly 49.5 years in prison for
the murder.
"There are no winners or
losers in this case ..." said Mr.
Fox's attorney and public de-
fender Julie Johnson during
the defendant's sentencing Sep-
tember lo. "Sterling was Mr.
Fox's friend and neighbor... He
mourned his loss and continues
to do so."
Judge Phyllis Rosier accept-
ed Mr. Fox's no contest plea to
second degree murder and
robbery with a deadly weapon
about 2:00 pm that day.
She did so reluctantly due to
the heinous nature of the mur-
der.
Mr. Howell was stabbed in
the neck and torso and left for
dead shortly after 7:00 pm. Mr.
Fox's mother, Andrea Ellis, and
another neighbor found the
body a short time later.
Testimony from the 27-
year-old defendant's sister
and grandmother painted a
troubling picture of Mr. Fox's
childhood, one that included


physical and mental abuse by
his step-father, Danny Ellis.
"Growing up was the hardest
part of his life until now," said
the sister, Melissa Coleman of
Sanderson.
Ms. Johnson said her client
was born premature, but Mrs.
Ellis didn't stay at the hospital
with him. The attorney also
mentioned the mother's alcohol
abuse and said she was drink-
ing the night of the murder, a
point Ms. Johnson intended to
use during trial to discredit her
testimony.
Mrs. Ellis, who shared a
Brince Way residence with Mr.
Fox, advised police the night of


the murder she overheard her
son planning to rob Mr. How-
ell, saw him leave with what ap-
peared to be white socks on his
hands and that she was sure he
killed the victim.
And while Ms. Johnson said
Mr. Fox's harsh start in life
didn't excuse the charges before
the court, "in his view, negative
attention was better than no at-
tention at all."
Judge Rosier responded that
everyone has problems in life,
but as adults they're still re-
sponsible for their actions.
"It was a horrible crime," she
said. "It even shocked the con-

Former elections chief,


icon Barton dead at 67


JIM MCGAULEY i
PRESS PUBLISHER
editor@bakercountypress.com
John J. Barton, a political icon in Baker County
politics the final three decades of the 20th Century,
died at his Macclenny residence on September 10
of a rare illness. He was 67.
Mr. Barton, elections supervisor for 28 years
until he decided to retire in 2000, managed with
his subdued, down-home style that included pound
cake recipes on the back of campaign cards, to be
re-elected with opposition in all seven elections. He
typically garnered about 60 percent of the vote.
"He was always the type of man who treated ev-
eryone fairly," observed his successor Nita Craw-
ford this week. "He told me we always needed to go
by the laws and we'll help anyone we can."
Ms. Crawford worked as a deputy supervisor for
Mr. Barton from 1979 until he retired. In 2000, she
bested a field of five candidates and took over the
elections office from the man who had mentored
her.
Mr. Barton was elected in 1972 as one of a wave
of then-younger candidates sworn into constitu-
tional and board positions, and he outlasted all of
them. In years prior to that, the elections supervi- Mr.

He won't take office until November, but said about half of the first

"That way, at least initially, they won't need to be so wrapped up
in raising money just to get the organization started," Mr. Davis said,
adding that he doesn't intend to play an active role in governing the

'Reluctant' on Fox plea


(From page 1
scious of this court, who has seen
a lot of violent things in her life ...
It was a death nobody deserves.
I'm sure [Mr. Howell] was bur-
ied with dignity. But there was
nothing about his death that was
dignified."
Assistant state attorney Ralph
Yazdiya said his office agreed to
the 50-year sentence to avoid the
emotional toll a trial would've
placed on the victim's family and
Mr. Fox's mother, who was set to
testify against her son.
Mr. Howell's sister, June
Fairhurst-Fay, was the first to
address the court. She thanked
the prosecution for sparing the
family the horrific details of the
murder.
She described how Mr. How-


ell was adopted and took a trip
to meet his biological siblings
for the first time in New York 17
years ago.
Ms. Fairhurst-Fay spoke about
her brother's natural ability to fix
things and his love for guitar and
ham radios.
Mr. Fox sat with his head
bowed as Mr. Howell's step-
daughter Lisa Tollefsrud of Lake
Butler read her victim's state-
ment.
"Please know the pain and
sorrow our family has suffered
for the last year and a half ..."
she said. "He was loved by many
people ... We should've been cel-
ebrating his birthday, but instead
we were mourning his death."
Mr. Howell would've turned
57 the day after his murder.


Then public defender Julie
Johnson presented a written
statement from Mr. Fox's grand-
mother, Martha Jones, who
sobbed as her words were read
into the court record.
"We're terribly sorry for Ster-
ling. He was such a great friend
to all of us," Ms. Johnson said in
part. "He was a good friend and
neighbor for 13 years."
Mr. Fox also cried during this
portion of the hearing.
Asked afterwards what she'd
miss most about her step-father,
Kim Williams, also of Lake But-
ler said, "His funny jokes and his
corniness. He had a way of mak-
ing you laugh."
Mr. Fox will receive 528 days
time served on the 50-year sen-
tence.


Ex-elections chief Barton...


(From page 1
families and history underpinned
that ability.
"He knew everyone, he knew
their kin and their politics. That
made him very accurate in his
predictions," recalls the current
supervisor.
Of course, Mr. Barton was
reticent to share those predic-
tions freely. They are a bit like
land mines, and he was far too
cautious to risk offending candi-
dates and their families unless
they were nudging him to stretch
election laws.
"I just found it best to stay out
of the other man's politics," he
said during the same interview.
By the time the new century
came along, the decorated Viet-
nam War vet decided he'd had
enough and headed often even
before his term expired to re-
treats in the Great Smoky Moun-
tains with his wife Wanda.
He spent more time in Baker
County in recent years closer to
his three children and his grand-
children. Several months ago,
Mr. Barton began a relatively
quick descent into a debilitating


and fatal condition that doctors
diagnosed as Creutzfeldt-Jakob
Disease.
It's a very rare condition that
destroys brain proteins and can
lie dormant for decades. Experts
link it to the famed "mad cow
disease" and say it can be con-
tracted by consuming infected
meat products.
Mr. Barton's family was told
that he could have contracted it
while in Vietnam in the 1960s.
So John Barton had the ideal
perch for observing Baker Coun-
ty politics and demographics
- during a pivotal time. Voters
went from using paper ballots,
to the cumbersome voting ma-
chines to punch cards to optical
scanners.
The county began what is now
a transition well underway into a
two-party electorate. Back when
he took office, big families got
together before an election and
voted as a bloc, often the whim
of a reigning patriarch. Inter-
family connections and ancestry
counted far more than actual
qualifications, and incumbents
swam against those political tides


at their own peril.
John Barton sat above it all,
sensing the changes earlier than
just about everyone and going
about his business in the unas-
suming way that won over the
trust of Baker County voters for
nearly 30 years until he chose the
time to quit.
He was buried at Macedonia
Cemetery following a funeral
service the morning of Septem-
ber 15.

Jacksonville's westside.
With the exception of Yates,
they were all involved in the con-
frontation between 3:oo-4:00oo on
Saturday afternoon.
Robert Wilcox, 25, a cousin
of the victim who exited his resi-
dence just before the shots rang
out, was not injured but was
in the line of fire. Apparently,
someone called Mr. Griffett a
student at Baker County High
School from the vehicle and
told him to stand outside his
residence.
Both sheriff's investigators
said they were taken aback by the
passive response they got from
occupants of the car at the time
of the shooting.
"Everyone in that car they
have no regard for life," said In-
vestigator Harvey. "I know now
why they have all those shootings
in that part of Jacksonville. They
don't think anything about some-
one leaning out a car window and
shooting someone. They don't
seem to care."
The sheriffs department this
week is consulting with the state
attorney's office on possible
criminal charges against the ve-
hicle occupants as accessories.
"I don't know whether we can
do that at this time, but I'd like
to see all of them charged with
something," said Mr. Harvey.

Likes 'Friday night lights'


She'll leave acrobatics to youths


I had the rewarding experience
of attending the Baker County
Wildcats' first game of the season
on September 3 against Crescent
City.
I wouldn't have wanted to be
the guys on the opposing team,
especially on the long bus ride
back home, because our Cats
stomped those suckers 40-0.
In the last few months, The
Press has added video coverage
of community events to its web-
site. Since I'm still learning to
use our new video camera, I won-
dered if I could get any football
game footage worthy of posting.
I volunteered to try.
Of note is the fact that I'm not
a sports fan myself, so I've never
gone to games and this was a first
for me.
I grew up in a household with
a father who played basketball for
the University of South Carolina
back in the late 1940's and early
'50s.
On Saturday during football
season, he was glued to the tube.
I remember lots of shouting, the
nature of which directly corre-
lated with the action or lack of
action on the television screen.
As my brothers came along,
theyjoined in these tirades. With
each addition of a son, the vol-
ume of the shouting in our house
on game days rose significantly.
Time marched on and sports
found its way into weekday cov-
erage as well. This meant I often
experienced the frustration of
having a favorite evening TV pro-
gram pre-empted by my father
and brothers.
They never asked if anyone
minded because they didn't care.
I found their self-styled "entitle-
ment" to the TV on such occa-
sions downright selfish. But my
protests were futile.
It proved easier to wrestle a gi-

ravenous alligator into
submission than to gain control
of the television when a game
was being broadcast, and so the
women in the household simply
gave up.
Suffice it to say I never became
a football fan.
But small town life quite often
revolves around its high school
football program and that's a fact.
It was time to confront my dislike
of the sport and give it a chance.
Armed with the video camera, I
decided to go to a Cats game and
see if I could capture some plays
as well as community spirit.


Now I know why people like
high school football games so
much they're exciting and fun!
For someone not versed in the
hows and whys of football, I got
some pretty good video, and to
my surprise, had a good time.
Actually, I had a great time.
The cheerleaders were beau-
tiful, the band was energetic,
especially the brass and percus-
sion arrangements of the song
"Tequila."
I carefully studied the girls
spinning, twirling, throwing
and catching their batons (I've
never understood how people
do that). I'm including here the
photograph I shot of twirler
Jenna Sands stretching before
the game.
This picture is a source of great
envy for me because I have never
been limber. I took ballet lessons
like so many little girls and my
fellow dancers could all contort
themselves into human pretzels
with no effort. Not me.
What I could do, however, was
turn cartwheels, sometimes half
a dozen at a time.
Last summer, I impulsively
tried to turn a cartwheel in my
front yard, knocked over a rake
leaning against the wheelbar-
row and nearly squashed a cat to
death when I landed in the azalea
bushes. It was five minutes before
I recovered enough to stand up
and stagger into the house where
I debated calling EMS.
The next day I could barely
walk.
I'll stick to the video camera
and leave the game night acro-
batics to the younger girls.

Dear Editor:
What you already knew is
now shown in a recent study by
the State Library and Archives of
Florida.
Libraries provide essential
services to a community, wheth-
er helping people of all ages learn
something new or improving ex-
isting skills. They can help to at-
tract people and businesses to an
area. Libraries provide a sense of
community.

coverage
Dear Editor:
With football season back in
full swing, our small town is buzz-
ing about who is playing who and
who is coaching who. Everyone
anxiously awaits the weekly edi-
tion of The Press to read about
last week's games.
You print articles about our
[BCMS] Bobcats and our varsity
Wildcats without even a mention
of the JV Wildcat team.
We understand the way the
system works middle school
and varsity come first. But the JV
players, coaches and parents put
in just as many hours of practice
and dedication. Many are sup-
porters at the same monetary
level as the varsity parents.
We travel to away games and
are just as proud of our chil-
dren. The cheerleaders and their
coaches work for endless hours
to encourage the team and enter-
tain the crowd. Coaches spend no
less time with the JV than with
varsity, and they do not give the
younger boys any breaks because
they are JV.
As supporters of our com-
munity sports, we would like to
see the JV games at least men-
tioned in the only newspaper in
town. We are told to encourage
our children to work hard and
stay focused, and we ask that you
give them a small piece of recog-
nition. Allow our children and
their families to chronicle their
progression from JV to varsity
and maybe even further!

Rick Scott targets


pay of state workers
Dear Editor:
Are you a state employee?
Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott wants to cut state
employee positions by 5 percent. He promises that he will slash state
contributions to your pension fund by $1.4 billion and require you to
deduct at least 5 percent of your salary into your FRS pension plan,
thus giving you an automatic 5 percent pay cut!
Are you a correctional officer?
Mr. multi-millionaire Rick Scott says that you are making too much
money dealing with convicted felons, and according to his website he
will cut the Department of Corrections budget by $1 billion and put
correctional officers on a "competitive based salary."
Of course, Mr. Scott has neither the honesty nor intestinal fortitude
to call this what it really is a pay cut!
Are you an NEFSH employee?
Rick Scott is eager to privatize state government services. Baker
County fought off many attempts by Republican politicians over the
years to privatize the state hospital. Think how much harder that fight
will be if you have a Republican governor favorable to privatization.
Are you a local business owner?
Think about the economic hardship that Scott will inflict on the local
economy if many of your friends, neighbors and customers who are
state employees receive drastic pay cuts, are privatized or part of the 5
percent that Rick Scott wants to reduce.
I urge all Baker County state employees, whether you work at
NEFSH or for the Department of Corrections, to vote on November 2.
Don't give Rick Scott the opportunity to cut your position, your pay and
your pension!

missioner (city or county) and were

would you vote to increase taxes or

Here's whatyou had to say...

start writing tickets to speeders going
thru our town. Might cut down on ac-
cidents, and may make a few bucks:'
Joshua Forth: "No tax increase,
stop all programs and cut spending No
more new stuff for at least the next 6
years. No more pricey fire truck. Close
the new jail and sell it and move the
police back into the old building. If
the county needs more money, make
the cops go out and give ticket's to
everyone that deserve it. Tail lights
out, running a red light, missing tag,
speeding though school zone, pulling
over people who drive in the dark with
lights off after 8:00 pm. If they pull
everyone over for that you got your
moneythere!"
Adam Tomlin:"l agree with Joshua
on this. When we as individuals have
a budget shortfall, we don't have the
option of just demanding more mon-
ey. And the government shouldn't do
that either. They should cut funding,
or work harder. Ticketing drivers is


a good way to make extra money.

didn't know it was out before getting
a ticket. I'm sure these officers out
here will pull someone over if they are

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


CITY OF MACCLENNY COMMISSION



City board cool to bids for attorney


JOEL ADDINGTON I NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
With only one member of the public on
hand September 14, the Macclenny City Com-
mission approved tentatively its budget and
millage, or property tax, rate for the coming
fiscal year beginning October 1.
Commissioners reviewed and discussed the
$6.6 million spending plan earlier this month
and will consider it again, for final adoption,
September 28 at 5:15 pm in city hall, 118 E.
Macclenny Ave.
The proposed property tax rate of 3.6 mills
is 2.9 percent below the rolled-back rate of
3.6994 mills, which is the rate needed to keep
tax revenues at their current level.
The proposed tax rate would generate some
$9600 less than the current rate, or $768,065.
The dollar amount represents about 11.5 per-
cent of the overall budget.
A home valued at $200,000 would pay
about $720 in city property taxes at the pro-
posed rate. The same property if homesteaded
and eligible for Florida's $50,000 value ex-


emption would pay about $540 in city taxes.
Macclenny residents' tax bills also include
county, school district, hospital authority and
water management district tax levies.
The sole resident on hand was Macclenny
real estate agent Dennis Collins, who regularly
attends city commission meetings.
He questioned whether the city could save
money by bidding out its legal services, which
are now on contract to Macclenny attorney
Frank Maloney for $140 an hour and a $500
monthly retainer.
"Maybe there are others that might be will-
ing to do it for less," he told the board.
None of the five commissioners, nor City
Manager Gerald Dopson voiced support for
the measure.
Mr. Dopson admitted that savings would
be likely, but said Mr. Maloney's knowledge
of city operations is more valuable.
"There is an advantage to having someone
experienced providing professional services,"
he said.
Mayor Gary Dopson, brother to the city
manager, agreed. He believes the savings


wouldn't be worth giving up "a known quan-
tity" like Mr. Maloney.
"He's done excellent work for us," Mayor
Dopson said. "As long as we're happy and his
rate is competitive, I don't feel strongly about
looking for a modest amount of savings."
Commissioner Vernon Bennett added the
long-time city attorney has received just two
raises in 23 years.
Mr. Collins also asked why the city doesn't
have its own police department, particularly
since the proposed budget for law enforce-
ment services from the sheriffs office in the
coming year is about $66,400 more than the
fire department's proposed.
'The fire department is doing an excellent
job. Why can't we have a city police depart-
ment?" he said.
Mayor Dopson said the endeavor would
likely cost more than the city is paying today
for law enforcement services.
In other business, the commission agreed
to annex into city limits American Enterprise
bank and forgo a $2 hike in the garbage rate.


Group resurrecting school PTA...

ing or conflicts with childcare."
Mr. Davis plans to donate the
remainder of his salary to the
Baker County Education Foun-
dation, a non-profit corporation
formed in 1989 and governed by
community leaders and school
district officials.
State statutes already mandate
that districts maintain School
Advisory Councils or SACs to as-
sist in preparing and evaluating
school improvement plans and
deciding how to implement the
plans using state funds.
The plans are aimed at in-
creasing student performance.
The councils consist of school
officials, parents, business part-
ners and community represen-
tatives. The groups must also be
racially reflective of local demo-
graphics.
The Pre-K/Kindergarten Cen-
ter's SAC, for instance, includes
34 people: five white males, four
black females and 25 white fe-
males. Less than half the group
showed up for the council's first
8:00 am meeting of the year.
"It's kind of hard [to attend] at
that time," said the school's sec-
retary Shirley Crawford.
Keller Intermediates's SAC
alternates meeting times. Next
month's meeting is at 6:00 pm
to coincide with a family reading
night while the December meet-
ing is scheduled for 8:00 am.
Mr. Davis said that finding
a more convenient avenue for


parents to become involved in
classrooms was part of the PTA's
impetus.
"[SAC] is a great opportunity
for parents to learn about what
the schools are doing," he said,
"but you don't have the full op-
portunity to be engaged and in-
volved as you would with a PTA
that can meet anytime on any
issue."
The PTA isn't intended to com-
pete with the advisory councils,
but instead offer another source
of revenue and more opportuni-
ties for parents to volunteer, said
Ms. McCollum.
With a network of millions of
PTA members nationwide and
280,000 in Florida, she said the
organization can also educate the
public on issues facing schools
today, like funding losses, class
size reduction and performance
pay for teachers.
"Whatever you face, chances
are somebody has been there and
done that," Ms. McCollum said.
Leadership for the PTA and its
budget will come from a board of
directors elected by the general
membership. While the board
will meet in private, general
meetings among the membership
will be open to the public, though
only members can vote.
Ms. McCollum said the board
will present activities and initia-
tives to the general membership
for consideration.
The PTA's first general meet-
ing will be September 30 at the
Crockett Building, 19 E. Mac-

clenny Ave., at 6:30 pm. Attend-
ees are encouraged to write down
any suggestions or ideas they
may have for the PTA and submit
them at the meeting.
A representative of the Florida
PTA will make a presentation
that evening about the differ-
ences between PTA and the state-
mandated SACs.
"Some parents feel like SACs
are controlled by principals and
not really a voice of the parents,"
Ms. McCollum said. "PTA is inde-
pendent from any kind of school
leadership."
She reiterated that the two
groups would not compete.
The PTA can enhance what
the district's already doing by,
for example, supplementing the
$300 new teachers receive for
classroom supplies.
"That doesn't go very far," said
Ms. McCollum.
David Davis, district admin-
istrator and former principal,
[no relation to Jesse Davis]
questioned the need for another
parent-teacher group and called
SACs, "a real workable group for
parents."
"You don't have a void," David
Davis said.
Because the councils spend
state funds, they're subject to
more stringent auditing require-
ments and public records laws.


The records of nonprofit groups
like the PTA are generally not
open for public inspection.
SACs are also charged with
deciding jointly with school ad-
ministrators how to spend "rec-
ognition" funds from the state.
The money is awarded to A-rated
schools and those improving by
one letter grade or more.
If no agreement is reached on
how to spend the funds by No-
vember 1, they're dispersed as
bonuses to teachers.
When asked why the PTA
disbanded here years ago, David
Davis said he couldn't say for
sure, but believed it was because
of membership dues.
Ms. McCollum said annual
dues for the new PTA will be $10
per member. Three dollars of
the sum will be remitted to the
Florida and national PTA orga-
nizations.
More information about the
PTA can be found at http://www.
floridapta.org or http://www.
pta.org.
SAC information can be found
at http://www.florida-family.
net/SAC/FLSAC.htm.
The local PTA group has also
launched a Facebook page where
users can ask questions or re-
quest further information.

BAKER COUNTY COMMISSION


County okays budget

at $32M; local share

of revenue down $13K


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
The Baker County Commis-
sion maintained course last week
by approving unanimously a ten-
tative $31.9 million budget and
7.1495 millage, or property tax,
rate for the 2010-11 fiscal year.
The decision came September
8 during the first of two public
hearings required by law before
final adoption, the second of
which is set for September 20.
The proposed property tax
rate is 2.87 percent less than the
rolled-back rate needed to collect
the same level of tax revenue as
the current year.
The proposed rate represents
a tax cut because it's expected to
generate $13,547 fewer tax dol-
lars than this year.
It should generate $5,617,489
or about 18 percent of the new
budget.
A home valued at $200,000
would generate about $1429 in
county taxes at the proposed tax
rate.
The same property, if home-
steaded, would yield about
$1072 due to property value ex-
emptions approved by Florida
voters in 1992 and 2008 totaling
$50,000.
The latter measure also made
the exemptions portable, so they
can't be lost when homeowners
move from one location to an-
other.
The school district, hospital
authority and water manage-
ment district levies appear on
county tax bills too, along with
assessments for fire protection
and garbage disposal.
The $31.9 million spending
plan for the coming fiscal year,
which begins October 1, is about
$825,000 smaller that this year's
budget.


Spending is expected to rise
modestly in many departments
due to state-mandated increases
in retirement contributions and
a 5 percent rise anticipated in
health insurance costs.
The recreation department
and the Supervisor of Elections,
however, proposed less overall
spending despite increasing per-
sonnel costs.
The new budget reflects no
new employees, equipment, pro-
grams or across-the-board raises.
County commissioners approved
a raise for IT specialist Clint
Shivers last spring in an effort to
retain him.
The county board will consider
the budget and tax rate for final
adoption Monday at 5:00 pm at
the county administration build-
ing, 55 N. 3rd St.
In other business last week,
the board directed county staff
to advertise for bids to remove
a nearly empty 6000-gallon fuel
tank south of the planning, build-
ing and environmental health of-
fices at the corner of Stansell and
2nd streets in Macclenny.
The removal is estimated to
cost more than $18,000.
The sheriffs office used the
tank before it moved into the
complex north of Macclenny in
June 2009.
"At present we do not have a
need for the fuel station," County
Manager Joe Cone wrote in a
memo to the board, adding that
the road department and emer-
gency services are fueled through
a private vendor and have access
to a 500-gallon tank for use after
regular business hours.
Maintaining the 6000-gallon
tank would mean insuring it and
paying for annual inspections to
comply with state environmental
regulations. Mr. Cone estimated
those costs at about $1650 a
year.

and revenues for the county without burdening the taxpayers.

2. Public Safety & Emergency Services- The safety and security of our families is what
allows us to enjoy living in Baker County. The needs of fire, rescue and law enforcement are essential to effective
emergency response.

3. Services for the Elderly- Our senior citizens have already made important contributions to our
community. Much of what we enjoy in life is the result of their hard work. Their needs must always be addressed.

4. Recreational Programs- We have a responsibility to continue funding and expanding programs
where possible to include youth and adults, both male and female. Investments in our youth insure our future.

5. Small Business Owners- When they do well and hire local people, it is a boon to our county.

6. A Thriving Community- Time is moving forward and so should the county. We can be proud of
the progress Baker County has made so far. The safety and quality of life we enjoy here help to promote a positive
image for attracting business and industry to our area. We have to keep moving forward.

7. Family Life- he well being of our families depends on their needs in the community being met. Just listen-
ing to the needs of people isn't enough. A commissioner must be able to relate to the people he or she serves.

The Code Enforcement Board
[CEB] gave a Sanderson com-
mercial building's owner to
days to fix electrical hazards that
county officials said could ignite
a structure fire.
William Raulerson rents the
42-year-old convenience store
building to Amin Ali, who oper-
ates Cheap Butts on the south-
west corner of US 90 and CR
229.
The CEB ruled September
13 that Mr. Raulerson would be
fined $1oo if the hazards aren't
rectified by September 23. He
could face additional daily fines
of $15 until the property comes
into compliance, for a maximum
of 180 days.
The board also assessed Mr.
Raulerson an $85 administrative
fee.

um and families can drop by any-
time during those hours. There
will be refreshments and leaders
will have tables set up to explain
their club and recruit members.
New and continuing members

firmed the fire marshal's report,"
Mr. Hathcox told CEB members.
"The electric panel definitely
needs some work ... My view is
this building right now is a public
safety issue."
The fire marshal agreed.
"We're pushing the envelope
right now," said Mr. Motherwell,
who could feel heat coming from
the extension cords during his
inspection.
Fire inspections typically don't
lead to code enforcement cases,
but the marshal said this case
was "a major life-safety issue"
and not the first time one of Mr.
Ali's stores has been cited.
"He takes a 'when I get around


to it, I'll fix it' kind of attitude,"
Mr. Motherwell said.
The building's owner, Mr.
Raulerson, addressed the CEB
that evening too, saying he's
hired P&R Electric of Macclenny
to fix the problems.
"I ran that store for 45 years,"
Mr. Raulerson told the board.
"He [Mr. Ali] changed everything
around."
The landlord is also attempt-
ing to evict Mr. Ali from the
building.
In other actions this week, the
CEB:
Gave Roger Harvey 30 days
to complete skirting around the
rear of his south county mobile
home at 7000 Southern States
Nursery Rd.
Failing to do so will cost Mr.
Harvey $50, plus $15 per day
until the skirting's finished, for a
maximum of 180 days.
The board also charged the
owner an $85 administrative
fee.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


COURT


4.5 years for sale of crack

Defendant is a felon on probation


A convicted felon who was
released from prison and out on
probation when arrested in De-
cember, 2009 for selling cocaine
was sent back last week for 52
months.
Walter McCrary, III, 25, of
Macclenny had been in county
jail since his arrest for sale of the
drug and possession with intent
to sell.
He had earlier violated pro-
bation from cases dating back
to 2005, including grand theft,
felony criminal mischief and sale
of cocaine.
In other cases heard on Sep-
tember 7, Judge Phyllis Rosier
ordered Raymond Brown to
serve 19 months in prison after
he pleaded no contest to twin
counts of selling crack cocaine.
He gets credit for 59 days in jail
since his arrest.
Mr. Brown, 26, of Jacksonville
was implicated in two controlled
buys set up by sheriffs investiga-
tors in Macclenny and Sanderson
last May.
Jason Smith, 23, admitted
to violating probation in several


cases dating back to 2007 and
will serve 13 months in prison.
Court records show he failed to
submit to drug treatment and left
a Salvation Army facility in June,
thus violating two conditions of
his house arrest probation.
He was on probation for felony
driving on a suspended license,
battery on an older person, re-
peat petty theft, felony battery
and resisting arrest.
Lee Battles Jr. admitted vio-
lating probation for possession of
a controlled substance and will
be in county jail six months.
Rodrick Roberts will be in
jail a year for violating probation
for sale of a counterfeit controlled
drug in 2009.
Judge Rosier ordered Dar-
lene Brister onto a drug offender
probation for three years in re-
turn for her no contest plea to
possession of a controlled drug.
She withheld adjudication and
also ordered the defendant to pay
a $350 cost of investigation fee.
Jason Burnette pleaded
no contest to criminal mischief
and grand theft and will be on a


two-year probation. Restitution
will be determined later, and the
judge ordered the defendant to
pen a two-page essay on theft.
Elick Griffis pleaded no con-
test to 13 counts of burglary of ve-
hicles, structures and grand theft
and was placed on a five-year
drug offender probation. He will
remain in jail pending availabil-
ity of a bed at the Salvation Army
facility, where he is to undergo
treatment for substance abuse.
The judge ordered Gregory
Lee of Green Cove Springs onto
a five-year probation after he
pleaded no contest to theft of
$2617 in electronics equipment
from the Macclenny Walmart in
the spring of this year.
The order includes payment
of restitution and that the defen-
dant stay out of Walmart stores
in the state of Florida or risk go-
ing to jail.
Mr. Lee was one of three per-
sons who entered the store in the
early morning of May 11 and stole
a television and other merchan-
dise. He also hit Walmarts in
Bradford and Duval counties.


Arrest for 'mobile' meth lab


A state trooper was credited
with the arrest early Saturday of
a Middleburg man for driving a
vehicle containing the ingredi-
ents for manufacturing metham-
phetamines.
Trooper D.L. Myers
said he turned around
on a southbound 2000
Cadillac Escalade on SR
228 south of Macclenny
just before midnight on
September to because it
had no tail lights.
The driver, Elton Craig
Fortner, 34, behaved in a
nervous manner when
questioned, and Trooper
Myers noted he opened Eltor
the rear door of the ve-
hicle attempting to retrieve tools
to fix the light malfunction.
Mr. Fortner told the officer
he was driving back from Fort
Lauderdale, where he said he
had been fishing and submitting
a bid for his cabinet contracting
business.
Trooper Myers noted that the


1 -


driver also had constricted eye
pupils and the pitch of his voice
varied while being questioned.
He also said he had encountered
both Mr. Fortner and passenger
Kathleen Mock, no age
or address listed, back
in August and she made
statements then indi-
cating the driver was in
the methamphetamine
business.
Later, when she was
placed in the patrol car
of DOT officer Matt
Finley, Ms. Mock spoke
of a duffel bag in the Es-
calade that Mr. Fortner
irtner asked her to conceal
when he realized the
trooper had made a u-turn just
before the traffic stop.
When the officers realized the
bag's contents included items
commonly used in meth labs,
they summoned Investigator
Randy Crews, a member of a fed-
eral drug task force.
He inventoried contents of


Arrests on drug warrants


The sheriff's department
rounded up five suspects Septem-
ber 8 and 9 on warrants stem-
ming from controlled drug buys
using confidential informants in
August.
Two more suspects are being
sought this week.
Arrested last week:
Teddy O'Neal Belford, 19, of
Macclenny for possession and
sale of marijuana and controlled
drugs.
Calvin J. Chestnut, 51, of
Sanderson, two counts of sale
and possession of crack cocaine
and one count of trafficking in
hydrocodone.
Bradley Hardenbrook, 21, of
Glen St. Mary, two counts of traf-
ficking, one in oxycodone and the
other in methadone.
Galen Pittman, 23, of Mac-
clenny, counterfeit sale of Lo-
ratab. The pills, when examined
by sheriff's investigators who
monitored the sale to the infor-
mant, turned out to be over-the-
counter Aleve.
Investigators John Hardin,
Mike Hauge and Steve Harvey all
had involvement setting up the
sting buys.
Police have warrants for Oc-
tavius Thompson, 19, of Baldwin
for two counts of possession and
sale of powder cocaine and a sin-
gle count of possession and sale
of marijuana, and Roman Tyrone
Thompson, 20, of Macclenny for
sale of marijuana.
Deputy Steven Smith ar-
rested Rashaad Church and Arlee
Givens, both 18 and from Sand-
erson, after driving up on them
late on September 11 in the Mac-
clenny park off West Boulevard.
Mr. Givens allegedly tossed
on the ground a bag containing
cocaine and he was charged with
felony possession.
Mr. Church, who gave consent
to search his car, was charged
with misdemeanor possession of
a small amount of pot between


the front seats and having a larger
bag of it before tossing it outside
the vehicle below the driver's side
door.


the bag that included: lighter
fluid, iodine, nail polish remov-
er, coffee filters, two packets of
Sudafed, a rubber hose, suction
tube, matches and several bottles
containing clear liquid.
Mr. Fortner informed the offi-
cers that two of the plastic bottles
contained moonshine. Earlier
he denied knowing it was in the
vehicle.
Trooper Myers and Officer
Finley also found a glass pipe in
the center front console and five
prescription pills in a small metal
tube in the vehicle's interior.
Mr. Fortner was booked at
county jail for possessing equip-
ment to manufacture an illegal
substance and possession of con-
trolled drugs without a prescrip-
tion.
Ms. Mock was not arrested.

patient


knocks out


employee
A criminal complaint for bat-
tery was filed against a patient at
Northeast Florida State Hospital
for attacking a male employee
the morning of September 8 and
knocking him unconscious.
The employee, Shelton Pervis,
53, of Macclenny told Deputy Da-
ryl Mobley the male patient, age
33, struck him in the face shortly
after the employee told him he
would return to let him in a tele-
vision room in Building 13W.
Witness Lori Jacobs of Mac-
clenny, another employee, said
she ran to the scene and heard
the patient scream "I am going to
kill you, man," as he pinned Mr.
Pervis to the floor. Other employ-
ees and security officers pulled
the patient off him.
In other incidents, Deputy
Matt Sigers filed criminal com-
plaints against all three women
involved in a fracas at MLK Dr.
and South Boulevard the evening
of September 8.
Romona Robertson, 22, was
named for aggravated battery on
Laronda Ellis, 23, who is seven
months pregnant. Ms. Ellis
claimed her assailant was armed
with a razor that caused a small
cut on her hand during the alter-
cation.
The complaints against Ms.
Ellis and another female, age
14, are for simple battery. All are
from Macclenny.
Edward Stewart, 55, of Mac-
clenny told police he was at-
tacked by a black male wearing
sunglasses after he attempted to
break up an argument between
the man and his wife Lori Royal,
age 38.
Mr. Stewart told Deputy Jer-
emiah Combs the man threw a
piece of concrete that struck him
on the arm, then cut him on the
left palm with a knife.
The incident took place about
7:oo the evening of September 6
off Quail Lane.


Threats, abuse by


live-in boyfriends
Police removed two live-in boyfriends from residences the past week
for making threatening and abusive statements in the presence of their
girlfriends and children.
Lori Jacobs, 36, of Macclenny called police the morning of Sep-
tember to claiming boyfriend Carl Peil, 45, had for several days been
agitated and cursing at her and her two children, one of whom also
belongs to Mr. Peil.
The couple lives on North 5th St.
At one point, she told Deputy Koty Crews that Mr. Peil made a direct
obscene statement to his daughter, age 4.
Ms. Jacobs said the boyfriend likely had ingested excessive medica-
tion and it was making him unbalanced. He was charged with domestic
assault.
A similar charge was filed four days earlier against Steven Rauler-
son, 39, for making threats and using abusive language in the presence
of girlfriend Susan Johns, 46, and their 2-year-old daughter.
Deputy Patrick McGauley was called to the couple's residence on
Bob Kirkland Rd. late on September 6 and said Mr. Raulerson was
highly intoxicated.
In other domestic cases:
Lance Johnson, 43, was arrested for battery on step-son James
Miller, 19, at their residence off Twin Oaks Lane near Glen St. Mary.
Mr. Miller told Deputy Jeremiah Combs he and his step-father ar-
gued over whether it was too hot to continue cleaning out a barn, and
Mr. Johnson punched him in the face.
A criminal complaint names Stacy Hott, 31, of Macclenny for bat-
tery on her mother Sandra Lauramore, 54, during an argument at their
residence on McIver St. the evening of September 12.
The mother told Deputy Earl Lord that Ms. Hott threw a cup at her
and choked her in the presence of the accused's four children ages 2-
11.
Deputies notified the Department of Children and Families about
the cases where children were present.

Brother pawns $2K rings


for $140 in Jacksonville


I


The younger brother of a Glen
woman's fiance is charged with
the theft of two rings from her
sometime in late August and Sep-
tember 3 when he pawned them
in Jacksonville.
Sheriff's investigator Da-
vid Morgan said James Perry,
25, pawned the rings valued at
$1ooo each for $70 at Roberts
Jewelry Repair and Pawn. The
suspect initially denied involve-
ment when the theft was first
reported to deputy Daryl Mobley
on September 8.
They were the property of
Charlene Smith, who along with
the suspect and his brother live
on Klein Rd. west of Glen. Ms.
Smith told police the rings were
in a jewelry box in a master bed-
room and she discovered them
missing the previous day.
One was adorned with cluster
diamonds, the other with a blue
sapphire and diamonds.
Investigator Morgan said Mr.
Perry admitted to the theft when
confronted with evidence from
the Jacksonville pawn shop.
He was booked for grand theft,
a third-degree felony.
In a second recent residen-
tial theft, this one also involving
a ring, a neighbor identified as
Jason Perry, 25, was named in
a criminal complaint for petty
theft. It is not known if he is re-
lated to the other suspect.
Victim Shirley Norman called
police after a 17-year-old female
who resides with the suspect told
the victim she found the ring and
some prescription pills with Mr.
Perry's belongings.
When questioned by Deputy
Patrick McGauley, Mr. Perry
denied stealing the items and
instead said Ms. Norman gave


Correction
An article in last week's edition
erroneously stated that brothers
Brenton and Gregory Rhoden
used a stolen credit card while
making a purchase at Walmart
on September 2.
Brenton Rhoden, 36, of Jack-
sonville made the purchase on
Gregory's card without his broth-
er's knowledge.

US 90 resurfacing contractor APAC Southeast removes the existing layer of asphalt east of Macclenny September 13.


County buys up 'milling'


To stabilize 5 miles of dirt roads


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
As US 90 gets a fresh layer of
asphalt through Baker County,
the old layer isn't going to waste.
Contractor APAC Southeast
Inc. has been peeling away the
existing surface, grinding it up
and spitting the material com-
monly called milling into
dump trucks, some of which bear
the county's public works depart-
ment logo.
The county intends to use
some 12 tons of milling, the sur-
plus amount expected by the
project's end, to stabilize about 5
miles of publicly-maintained dirt
roads, said department director
Robert Fletcher.
APAC is keeping some mill-
ings from the 13-mile resurfacing
project for itself and selling the
rest to the county.


"It's way cheaper than I've
ever seen," Mr. Fletcher said of
the price.
About 80 percent of the coun-
ty's anticipated millings have
already been stockpiled at two
locations one just east of the
courthouse on 2nd Street in Mac-
clenny and another near Arnold
Rhoden Road in Sanderson.
Mr. Fletcher recommended
obtaining permits from the Flori-
da Department of Transportation
to stabilize 11 roads totaling 7.68
miles using the milling.
The permits last five years and
the director hopes additional
milling can be secured in the fu-
ture.
The roads planned for stabi-
lization are W.M. Barber Road,
Ira Starling Road, Jim Starling
Road, Pine Top Road South,
Blue Hole Road, Faye Road,
Violet Road, Eddy Grade Road to
Baxter Grade Road, River Hills


Road, Aunt Mary Harvey Road
and Stasi Road.
Mr. Fletcher said a 4-inch
layer of milling will be placed on
the dirt surfaces. It should last a
few years and eliminate the need
for regular grading, he said.
No date has been set to begin
the spreading.
The longest stretch of stabili-
zation is proposed for Southern
States Nursery Road, which has
already been permitted. Mr.
Fletcher recommended begin-
ning it when the milling process
nears Glen St. Mary.
Other ongoing road projects in
the county include the resurfac-
ing and widening of Woodlawn
Road, repaving of CR 229 S. to
the county line, resurfacing of
Mudlake Road and resurfacing,
realignment and sidewalks on
Lowder Street.


Drunk driver fails to stop


A Macclenny motorist was
arrested for drunk driving after
a county deputy followed him
driving erratically west on US 90
between Macclenny and Glen St.
Mary early on September lo.
Cpl. Ben Anderson said he was
stopped at the Lowder and US 90
light just before 2:00 am when he
observed a 1999 Saturn driven by
Donald Brantley, 39, make an ex-
cessively wide turn.
He also said the vehicle veered
out of its lane several times before
turning north on Wildcat Drive.
The officer said Mr. Brantley
failed to pull over when he acti-
vated the blue lights of his patrol
vehicle, and eventually turned
onto Westside St. and into a pri-
vate drive.
The driver had an odor of al-
cohol and failed several field so-
briety tests before he was taken
to county jail where he measured
.188 on a breathalyzer, well in
excess of what Florida considers
drunk.
Mr. Brantley was also ticketed
for failure to maintain a single
lane.
In an unrelated arrest, Romo-
na Robertson, 22, of Macclenny
was jailed for disorderly conduct
after she refused repeated re-
quests by Deputy Matt Sigers to
calm herself the night of Septem-
ber 9.
The officer responded three
times that evening to disturbance
calls on MLK Dr. in the west city
involving Ms. Robertson. The
final time, she had returned to
the area and was standing in the
northbound lane of the street,
cursing and making threats to a

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


'Tenor' cast of BCHS drama alums


KELLEYLANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
A cast of seasoned Baker
County performers will pres-
ent the upcoming comedy farce
"Lend Me a Tenor," which
opens September 23.
The play won three Tony
Awards and four Drama Desk p
Awards during its two Broad-
way runs.
The story takes place during
September 1934 in Cleveland,
Ohio. The general manager of '
the Cleveland Grand Opera '/.
company is all set to welcome
the world famous Tito Morelli, I
the greatest tenor of his genera-
tion.
For one night only, Morelli Kelly Ow
will star in the opera Othello.
But the star arrives late and
through a hilarious series of mishaps, passes
out after being given a double dose of tranquil-
izers. Thinking him dead, the manager, who
wants to salvage the performance, persuades
his assistant to impersonate Morelli on stage.
A cast of strong and experienced actors is
a must for a play like "Lend Me a Tenor." It's
filled with plot twists and a dizzying array of
entrances and exits on and off the stage.
It's worth it just to hear the grandiose and
amusing Italian accents (which are very good)
and see the bigger than life dramatic gestures
of the actors.
Baker County's version of "Lend Me a Ten-
or" is a community theatre project and fea-
tures a cast made up entirely of Baker County
High School alumnae. They all have contin-
ued to participate in theatrical productions
while pursuing academic degrees or holding
down jobs.
Here's a rundown of the cast, the charac-
ters they were chosen to play and more on
why they wanted to be in "Lend me a Tenor."

Tito Morelli
Bob Gerard plays Tito Morelli, the world-
famous tenor who is also known to his fans as
"I1 Stupendo."
Bob's acting and his theatrical directing
experience speak for themselves. Suffice it to
say he is executing this project with the usual
quality and attention to detail that produc-
tions at BCHS are noted for.
"Lend me a tenor is without a doubt the
funniest play I've ever read or seen," he said.

Mr. Saunders
Mark Bryant plays Mr. Saunders, the
manager of the opera company. He's brash,
authoritarian and short-tempered.
Mr. Bryant graduated from BCHS in 1986
and is a veteran employee of Blue Cross. He
was involved in theatre throughout high


en, Stacy Staples, Mark Bryant and Kaylie Raulerson portray a scene.


school and while attending Jacksonville Uni-
versity.
He's been in the Alhambra Theatre produc-
tions of "Annie Get Your Gun" and "Godspell"
working with Leanza Cornett, Miss America
1993.
"I'm a tough audience myself and this play
is hands down the funniest thing I've ever
seen. It's truly 'Laugh out loud' funny," he
said.

Max
Josh Willoughby plays Max, the earnest,
hard-working opera company assistant who
is in love with Saunder's daughter Maggie.
He graduated from BCHS in 2000 and has
participated in theatre continuously since that
time, while working different jobs.
He did numerous community theatre pro-
ductions with Bob Gerard at Lake City Com-
munity College and often worked backstage
helping young actors learn the ropes of stage
production.
"What drew me into auditioning for "Lend
Me a Tenor," was the prospect of working with
other seasoned actors," he said. "And this is a
fun project. The play is a hoot."

Maggie
Stacy Staples plays Maggie, Max's girl-
friend and Saunders' daughter. Smart and
practical, she yearns for something wonderful
and romantic before settling down with Max.
Ms. Staples is a 1988 BCHS graduate who
attended Lake City Community College,
Brigham Young University in Hawaii and
graduated from University of North Florida
with a degree in education. She taught at
BCHS for a decade and now works as the li-
brarian at the PreK Center.
"I missed the stage these last to years,"
said Ms.Staples. "Community theatre was a
way to get back to it. This is such a crazy play.
It's going to be a lot of fun."


ever read."


Julia
Kelly Owen Register plays
Julia, the vivacious chairperson
of the opera guild.
Ms. Register is a 1988 gradu-
ate of BCHS. She earned her
degree in accounting from Uni-
versity of Florida and is now a
CPA at Nemours Hospital.
A veteran of stage produc-
tions at BCHS, she appeared
in the local community theatre
production of "Steel Magnolias"
last year. Since accounting can
be a somewhat solitary profes-
sion, acting keeps her con-
nected with people and doing
something she truly loves.
She is happy to be a part
of "Lend me a tenor." "It's so
funny, this show," she said.
"About the funniest play I've


The Bell Hop
Kaylie Raulerson is the shrewd, opportu-
nistic bell hop who is determined to wrangle
an audition out of Morelli.
A 2008 graduate of BCHS, Ms. Raulerson
is currently attending Florida Gateway Col-
lege and is employed byWestside Elementary
as a Title I instructional assistant.
She was in her first play in 2000, the part
of a butterflyin "The Wiz." She later appeared
in '"The Wizard of Oz" as the Wicked Witch of
the West.
"I thought The Wizard of Oz would be the
last play I did for a while because I needed to
go to school but no, I keep on coming back. I
can't stop," she said, laughing.
The chance to work with experienced thes-
pians is what drew her to this play. She says
the experience should really help her grow as
an actor.

Diana
Nikki Knight plays the part of Diana, the
opera's sultry and forceful lead soprano.
Ms. Knight graduated from BCHS in 1997
and is currently a science teacher at Oakleaf
High School.
She began working with Bob and Kelley
Gerard at age 7 when she landed the role of
Toto in "The Wizard of Oz."
'"Lend Me a Tenor" is hilarious, the funni-
est play I have ever read," she said. "You know
it's funny when you even go home in tears
from the rehersals."
"Lend me a tenor" runs September 23-26
and September 30 October 3.

'Eye on weather'


behind ag center


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Every two months techni-
cian George Braun pays a visit
to multiple metal towers in vari-
ous locations throughout cen-
tral and north Florida. He was
in Macclenny several weeks ago
performing routine maintenance
on the tower located behind the
Baker County extension offices.
Installed in 2002, the tower
is part of a network known as
FAWN, which stands for Florida
Automated Weather Network.
The project is managed
through the Institute of Food
and Agricultural Science at the
University of Florida.
Currently, the network in-
cludes 48 towers that dot the
Florida landscape, stretching
from the town of Jay in the west-
ern most part of the Panhandle
down past Miami.
They function as data collec-
tion stations which trasmit time-
ly weather information especially
critical to farmers.
But anyone can keep them-
selves up to date on weather
conditions by checking the data
on the FAWN web site which
broadcasts average values on
conditions every 15 minutes.
The towers are outfitted with
various instruments measuring
rainfall, wind speed and direc-
tion, air and soil temperatures,
dew point readings, relative hu-
midity and radiation.
Rick Lusher, FAWN's direc-
tor, visited the Baker County
extension office September 8.
While there, he spoke to Rotar-
ians about the network and how
it functions.
The mission of the network, he
explained, is to furnish a variety
of users with accurate and up to
the minute weather information.
However, agricultural interests
comprise the majority of custom-
ers it serves.
"Suppose you're a farmer and
you need to schedule irrigation.
You don't want to mechanically
water if nature is going to be do-
ing the job because it's a waste
of money and resources. That's
where FAWN plays a vital role,"
he said.
After a Power Point presenta-
tion on the subject, he led Rotar-
ians out to the field to examine
the tower for themselves and
explain the multiple instruments
it supports.
"Many of the towers are lo-
cated at research and education
centers like your extension office
here. Some are out in the middle
of nowhere. But each one gets
serviced every two months," he
said.


Mr. Lusher at the Macclenny tower.
He pointed to two white dome-
shaped instruments located on
the lower portion of the tower
and one near its top.
"These measure air tempera-
tures at 2, 6, and 30 foot heights
in Fahrenheit and Celsius."
Other instruments include
rain gauges, a device to record
solar radiation data, instruments
that read the direction and speed
of wind in mph and kilometers.
There is a sensor measuring rela-
tive humidity and one buried in
the ground for soil temperatures
to a four inch depth.
Datajunkies can even view 15-
minute interval graph readings
of information archived over a
number of days and even weeks.
The FAWN web site offers a
variety of management tools that
help growers make decisions. The
tools use historical weather data
and crop modeling technology to
assist in both short and long term
planning. For example the Cold
Protection Toolkit contains guid-
ance in cold protection practices.
The web site also transmits
messages to viewers on the sta-
tus of the towers, especially if
data transmission is interrupted.
A sample message might read:
"Repairs of LIVE OAK tower rain
gauge are complete; all rain in
past 24 hours was recorded" or
"Communication with HAST-
INGS tower down but tower
still collecting data which will be
available when communication is
restored."
Another convenient feature of
the web site is a link to The Na-
tional Oceanic and Atmospheric
Association (NOAA). Enter your
zip code and get the local current
conditions and get a detailed sev-
en day forecast and maps show-
ing radar and satellite imagery.
To view the FAWN web site go
to www.fawn.ifas.ufl.edu.

cess your local tower there.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


Church launches 'Mercy House'


Temporary housing

for women, soon men


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Like many churches, Raiford
Road Church in south Macclen-
ny has an active missions out-
reach program, helping to build
churches and spread the Gospel
of Jesus Christ.
Raiford Road has, to date, built
70 churches in Central America.
But charity begins at home, as
the old saying goes. The Raiford
Road Housing Ministry project,
currently underway, has just
opened Mercy House, an on-site
facility for women.
Mercy House will function as
temporary housing for women
facing a variety of life challenges
and provide shelter during the
transition from a bad situation to
a more positive one.
This is just one of multiple
planned temporary housing fa-
cilities to be located on 6 acres of
church property that will accom-
modate males and single families
as well.
Doneita Grimm, who is un-
dergoing church certification as
a counselor, will live on site and
function as the housing minis-
try's director.
"People in the community
have been so wonderful and
helped us make this a beautiful,
nurturing environment where
women can feel safe and loved,"
she said.
Mercy House began when a
nicely maintained double-wide
mobile home was donated to
RRC. Local businesses and in-
dividuals then made additional
donations of furniture, rugs, beds
and decorative items to furnish
the interior.
"I want to especially thank two
of the funeral homes in Macclen-
ny Guerry's and Ferreira's for
their donations of furniture," said
Ms. Grimm. "It helped create the
feeling of a safe and welcoming
environment when you first walk
in, exactly what I envisioned for
women who come here."
Mercy House is not a battered
women's shelter specifically, al-


though women who may need to
escape from domestic violence
will certainly be among those
who use the facility.
The church's counseling ser-
vices will assist in empowering
women to seek employment, job
skills training, housing and any
other aspects involved in becom-
ing self-sufficient.
Anyone seeking shelter
through Mercy House will go
through an evaluation process to
determine genuine need. Attend-
ing church services, sharing meal
preparation and housekeeping
tasks, and actively participating
in counseling and spiritual ex-
ercises will be part of the experi-
ence.
"The church will be here to
help empower these women to
become self-sustaining and take
control of their lives again," said
Ms. Grimm.
According to senior pastor
John Raulerson, making a real
difference in the immediate com-
munity has become a primary
focus for the RRC congregation.
The church already offers free
Biblical-based counseling and a
free clothing ministry that is in
the process of reopening in a new
location.
"It's important to get people
out of the pews and involved as
minister servants if you will,"
said senior pastor John Raul-
erson. "Our faith contends that
we are all servants. The Raiford
Road Housing Ministry is just
one of the many ways the church
is attempting to actively create
opportunities for its members to
be 'pastors-at-large.'"
An existing structure on the 6
acres devoted to the project was a
small brick house that had fallen
into terrible ruin.
Ms. Grimm's husband, who
has considerable construction
experience, worked to renovate
the house where the couple now
resides. Ms. Grimm worked by
his side, tearing down walls and
hauling away debris.
"Grass was growing up 3 feet
tall inside this house," she said.


"It was covered with vines and all
kinds of critters were living in it.
It's hard to imagine now."
As the housing ministry's di-
rector, Ms. Grimm is enthralled
with her new home, her impend-
ing counseling certification and
the opening of Mercy House,
which she named.
The other housing units will
have their own names also.
"Doenita and her husband
are a blessing to our church and
I'm pleased to say that we have
nearly 80 more members of the
congregation involved in earn-


We have more!

They will work in the capacities
at which they are most suited,"
he said.
"It's been my experience that a
person doesn't receive the full joy
of God's love until you realize and
find your purpose, how you can
best and most effectively serve,"
he said.

Lifter takes


the bronze

Tiffany Braddy of Baker Coun-
ty secured a bronze medal at the
9th Annual Joe Dub6 Weightlift-
ing Classic this past weekend in
Jacksonville.
The Classic, named after Bak-
er County's
own Olym-
pic weight-
lifter, at-
tracts top
lifters from
around the
state and
nation.
Braddy,
a 16-year-
old BCHS
junior, was
suffering
from the flu Tiffany Braddy
but none-
theless managed to snatch 48
kilos and clean and jerk 66 kilos
in the Olympic-style event. She
missed her last clean and jerk at-
tempt at 68 kilos and finished in
third place in her division.
Braddy qualified for the Junior
Nationals based on her weight to-
tals in the School Age Nationals
in San Francisco in June. She will
compete in the Junior Nationals
in February.
She is the sister of Junior
Olympic weightlifter Thomas
Braddy, who competed this sum-
mer for the US team in Bulgaria
and has trained at the Olympic
weightlifting facility in Colorado
Springs, Colorado.
Braddy has only been lifting
competitively for a little over a
year.
"I got into this sport because
of my older brother. I had been
watching him lift for a while and
thought it was pretty cool so I
decided to get into it myself," Tif-
fany Braddy said.

Wildcats topple Trinity in

Game ends 34-27 with defensive


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
Whew!
If you are a longtime Wildcat fan, you know
there are games that stick in your memory as
pivotal victories. Beating Starke for the first
time is certainly one. Last year's playoff vic-
tory over Madison is another.
Friday night's double-overtime thriller
against Trinity Christian Academy in Jack-
sonville certainly ranks as a game that will
be talked about for years to come. The 34-27
come-from-behind victory against the top-
rated team in the area had all the makings of a
classic for the ages.
Trinity defeated the Wildcats last season on
their home field and the Cats' starting quar-
terback Jeremy Wannamaker transferred to
BCHS from Trinity this year.
The game had marquee player and Divi-
sion 1 prospect Andrew Buie, who took the
Conquerors on his shoulders and almost pro-
pelled them to victory.
It had a remarkable last second field goal
to tie the game.
And finally, a teeth-gritting, helmet-smash-
ing stop on fourth down to seal the Wildcats'
win.
It was one of those games that
make high school football so ap-
pealing and exciting and can de-
fine the season and the team as a
whole.
The Wildcats knew all last week
the game would be a challenge.
Trinity was last year's runner-up
for the state crown and this year sat
atop the area's power ranking. Add
to that home field advantage for
the Conquerors and it looked to be
a tough task.
"We knew we were going to have
to execute. But knowing your as-
signment is one thing and execut-
ing is another," said Coach Ryan
Sulkowski.
The Wildcats had a couple of
not-so-secret weapons in Wanna-
maker and Bryce Cox.
Cox was Trinity's defensive guru
before picking up the defensive
coaching reins at BCHS.
Knowing what to expect and
stopping it are two different things,
as the Wildcats discovered when
the Conquerors struck first on a 58-
yard touchdown pass from Buie to
Chuck Hawkins on the first series.
Buie is one of the state's most
dangerous players and the fact
that he can play running back or
quarterback makes him more so.
He would prove to be the biggest
obstacle of the game for BCHS.
The Cats struggled with mental mistakes
early in the game and it took a while for them
to get on track.
Trinity wasn't immune to their own mis-
cues and Wildcat Kendrick Singleton picked
off Buie at the Trinity 44 yard line to set up an
eight play, 55-yard touchdown drive.
The Wildcats platoon Wannamaker and
Kendrick Sampson at quarterback, with Wan-
namaker considered more of a running threat
and Sampson the passing threat.
But Sulkowski shuffled the deck and
brought in Sampson on what looked to be
an obvious passing down at the 19-yard line.
Sampson caught Trinity off guard, took off
running, found the left corner and scampered
into the endzone. Wannamaker's kick gave
BCHS the lead.
The Cats extended the lead after two big
hits by Jared Lee and Rickie Tharpe gave the

2nd overtime

stand at goal line
line. From there, Sampson rolled to the right
and ran it in for the score.
At halftime, Trinity coach Verlon Dormin-
ey decided to put the game squarely on Buie's
shoulders and the gamble almost worked.
Trinity scored on a Buie touchdown run and
BCHS answered with a 42-yard field goal
from Wannamaker for a 17-12 edge over the
Conquerors.
But Buie scored again and Trinity added
the two-point conversion on a double reverse
to Hawkins.
It was one of those times that coaches claim
define their team's character. The Wildcats
drove 80 yards in four minutes to tie the score
with two seconds left on the clock. They were
aided by a pair of pass interference penalties
against 6'5" wide receiver Thomas Sirk, who
was hammered going for the ball.
With time expiring, Wannamaker got a
perfect hold and booted a pressure-packed
43-yard field goal to tie the game.
Overtime proved no different than regula-
tion play for Trinity.
It was all Andrew Buie. With the ball set
up in the Kansas Tie-breaker format on the
to-yard line, Buie ran it in on the first play of
extra time to give the Conquerors a
OTOSBYJUDJOHNSON 27-20 edge.
)n. A pass interference call against
Kendrick Singleton moved the ball
to the 5 yard line. Another Trinity
penalty took it to the 2 and Wanna-
maker ran it in and added the point
after to tie the game again.
This time, tie-breaker rules gave
BCHS the ball and Falon Lee, who
had seen just a few touches during
regulation play, got the ball and
easily ran it in for the score and a
34-27 edge for BCHS.
The Conquerors got the ball to
1-yard line with Buie running ev-
ery play. On fourth down it was no
secret who would get the ball. Buie
rolled out and the Wildcat defense
swarmed him.
"It was literally the only play
since the first half that we stopped
them for a loss," said Sulkowski.
"But when our defense bows up
their neck they can stop some peo-
ple."
It was bedlam from the large
Wildcat traveling contingent and
silence on the part of the Trinity
faithful. The game was a huge win
for the Wildcats and a devastating
loss for Trinity.
This week BCHS will take on
undefeated Bradford County at
Memorial Stadium.
In other BCHS football action,
the Wildcat JV lost to Bishop Kenny 12-7 on
Thursday night at Memorial Stadium.


Scholarship recipients sought

Baker High graduates who received college scholarships in any sport or activities includ-
ing cheerleading, band and other areas, are invited to be on hand at the Wildcat football game
Theme Night on September 17.
Special recognition will be given to these former students starting at 7:00 pm.
If you would like to be part of the program, contact Jane Rhoden at 259-3809 on or before
Tuesday, September 14, and leave your name, the year you graduated from BCHS, the university
or college you received the scholarship from and in what sport or activity.
Participants can also include professional information, and the Theme Night Committee is
seeking any BCHS grad who was drafted into a professional sport.
Persons who miss the contact deadline can still participate by bringing an index card with the
information to the field concession stand just outside the stadium gate by 6:45.
A family member is welcome to fill in for persons unable to be there that night, or for those
who are deceased.


Ask any Wildcat fan over the
age of 40 what the most impor-
tant game of the football season
is and the answer is likely to be
unanimous Bradford County.
For many years it was all
about beating Starke. A win over
the Tornadoes ensured a good
season, no matter what the final
record showed.
The luster might have faded
from the match-up in recent
years, but for many fans in the
stadium this Friday when Brad-
ford comes to town, the game has
meaning.
The Cats notched a big win
last week against Trinity Chris-
tian, but Coach Ryan Sulkowski
knows the Tornadoes have out
scored opponents 59-7 in their
two wins this season.
Bradford is rebuilding after
a 4-6 record last season. They
have an enthusiastic new coach
in Derek Chipoletti, who was 7-
4 at Williston. Chipoletti moved
the Tornadoes from the Wing T
to the spread offense, so they will
be something of a mirror to the
Wildcats offensively.
Pulling the trigger is Chipolet-
ti's son Austin, who has some ex-
citing players at the receiver posi-

I


tion. YaKeem Griner, who at 6'4"
and 200 pounds plays both tight
end and receiver, runs a sub 4.8
seconds in the 40 and has com-
mitted to FIU. Tramaine Harris
is slower but a receiver with very
good hands.
Carrying the ball the brunt of
the time is running back Dexter
Clayton. He is quick, durable and
an exciting back.
The offensive line is big and
anchored by 300-pound senior
Cameron Moore. Dylan Manning
is also good at opening holes for
Clayton.
John Clark is a senior line-
backer and team leader. He
played quarterback last season
in the Wing T, but is now the
Tornadoes' top 'backer. Donelle
Williams and Adrian Mosley will
also be a handful at linebacker.
The Tornadoes have made a
lot of progress so far in the young
season. They beat Keystone
Heights 19-7 in the first game of
the season and handed the Fer-
nandina Beach Pirates an embar-
rassing 40-0 shutout.
They would like nothing better
than to come to town and shock
the Wildcats on the home field.

'Physical' Bobcats

football squad at 2-0
Baker County Middle School got its sea-
son off to a great start September 7 with a
38-20 victory over Camden County at Me-
morial Stadium. The Bobcats totally domi-
nated the middle of the field and overpow-
ered the highly-ranked visitors.
"We were able to run up the middle
against them and kept them from getting to
outside on their sweep," said Coach George
McDuffie.
For McDuffie, the Bobcats' ability to ~ .. :
control the line of scrimmage was the key to
the victory, one of the biggest in the middle ..-
school's history.
"They couldn't stop us from going up the Brody Crews runs
middle. Our offensive line was able to open the ball.
holes all night long. The offensive line of Bo
Hodges, Matthew Butcher, Josh Colon, Cotton Jefferson and Austin
Manning overpowered the Camden defenders," he said.
Running back Brodie Crews scored three touchdowns from his full-
back position and Jefferson came in at running back and scored two
more for the Bobcats. Quarterback Jacob made good on the 2-point
conversions.
Defensively, the Bobcats prevented the dangerous sweep. Cody
McKendree, Reggie Givens, Butcher and Crews did a good job sealing
the covers and keeping the Camden running backs bottled up.
Two of the Camden scores came on kickoff returns for touchdowns.
"We've got to do a better job on special teams this week," said McDuff-
ie.
The BCMS Bobcats made it two in a row with a 28-6 victory on the
road at Callahan Middle School. The Bobcats controlled the line of
scrimmage and ran it down the throats of Callahan in what George
McDuffie called a "good physical game."
