CSX lease is not


City to seek more ta

The Macclenny City Commis-
sion on July 8 tabled a lease agree-
ment with CSX Transportation
for its right-of-way on both sides
of the railroad track from SR 121
east to 3rd
Street.
The city By
has a simi- Joel
lar lease
agreement Addington
for the south
right-of-way Prs
[ROWJ that
has been in effect for several 1.
years. With that lease about to ex-
pire, CSX wanted to include both
the north and south ROWs in a
new $15,000 annual lease agree- .
ment. Both the railroad and Mac-
clenny have been in back-and-
forth discussions on the lease for
two years.
For the city, the new Jease
would have included more park-
ing space and ascetic improve-
ments like curbing, fencing and
landscaping. The city could make
improvements for parking on a
portion reaching in 28 feet toward the tracks
from the outer boundaries.
City Manager Gerald Dopson said the
city originally wanted 35-feet of ROW while
CSX was pushing for 20 feet. But the 28-foot

compromise, "would only allow one-way
traffic," he said.
According to city officials, CSX says
it needs the extra space in the event more
tracks are added in the future.
But even with the compromise, city of-


ficials and Jim McGauley, chairman of the
Downtown Redevelopment Committee,
found the lease's terms unfavorable to the
city or its downtown businesses.

A Macclenny woman ac-
cused of shooting her husband
to death last March off John
Rowe Road was indicted for
first-degree murder by a grand
jury July 14.
It was only min-
utes after the 21-
member jury fin-
ished hearing the
presentment that .-
morning by State
Attorney Bill Cer-
vone of Gainesville
and Assistant Mel
Bessinger that the
jury decided to in-
dict Meloney Lee
Jackson, 40, for Melone
the death of Kevin
Mark Jackson.
The state says it has suffi-
cient evidence to prove at trial
that Ms. Jackson intended to
kill her husband by shooting
him multiple times about 5:00
am March 3 at their residence
south of Glen St. Mary.
Sheriff's deputies arrived at
the home that morning after the


couple's 13-year-old daughter
called police, and they found
Ms. Jackson kneeling over her
husband's body in the front
yard crying.
An autopsy showed the vic-
tim was shot once in the chest,
five times in the
back and once in the
back of the head. An
investigator's report
stated Ms. Jackson
changed her story
about what hap-
pened that morning
multiple times dur-
ing separate inter-
views with police.
A neighbor also
told deputies he
heard a three-to-
Jackson five minute delay be-
tween the initial shot
and the six successive shots.
Mr. Jackson filed for divorce
in July 2007, and after media-
tion failed, a trial date was set
for March 4, the same day as
Ms. Jackson's arraignment on
the murder charge.
They were married for more
than 15 years.


Temporary business


permit hiked by city


BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Operating some temporary
businesses in the City of Mac-
clenny got a bit more expensive
when city commission unani-
mously approved raising its
permit fee by $200 on July 8.
Before the increase, the city
offered temporary business
permits for events like auto
tent sales at $300 for a three-
day event, or essentially $100
per day.
Now the same permit is $300
per day, a 200 percent jump to
the daily rate.
However, Assis-
tant City Manager Hom
Roger Yarbrough
said that "home- pro0
grown produce" is
exempted from the exen
fee along with peo- the ra
pie on Social Secu-
rity, seniors citizens Assistan
or those with dis- R
abilities.
Temporary busi-


ness owners not exempted
from the daily permit fee are
still required to pay any appli-
cable occupational license fees
imposed by the city as well.
The board also granted pre-
liminary approval during its
regular meeting for two rezon-
ing requests, one for the Baker
County Commission and an-
other for the day care center

of Macclenny.
The latter request would
rezone more than one acre of
Charles and Celinda Smith's
CR 23B property from residen-
tial to residential professional
office for commercial use. The
change is sought by the owners
for an addition to the facility.
The county's request would
rezone 1.61 acres at 32 N. 5th
St. the county property ap-
praiser's office and formerly a
private bank from commer-
cial to government use.

The county pur-
chased the prop-
erty previously, but
needed the zoning
changed to accom-
modate a generator
at the office, some-
thing not permitted
under the existing
zoning.
Both requests
were unanimously


approved on first
reading. A second and final
reading of the rezoning ordi-
nances is expected next month.
Charges for connecting
new development to the city's
water and sewer distribution
lines may also be increasing
for utility customers located
outside city limits, if city com-
missioners approve a measure
setting "line capacity charges"
at one-and-a-half times the rate
paid by customers inside city
limits.
The charges are used to pay
for existing and future water
distribution lines, lift stations,
force mains or gravity lines.
The commission approved
the increases which differ
for residential and commercial
customers on first reading
this month.
For example, residential
customers inside the city pay
$1791 in water and sewer line

Starbucks slates store for closing


Starbucks' corporate mavens say they'll
close the Macclenny store before next
March.
Not so fast, some employees and loyal
customers are saying. It's only been open
seven months.
The store's dozen or so employees were
informed by e-mail last week that the local
outlet on busy SR 228 next to the Wal-Mart
Supercenter is one of 600 slated for closure
due to sagging sales.
The smartly furnished 1800-square-foot
Starbucks is in an "out-parcel" just east of
the Wal-Mart that opened last year, one
of two or maybe three free-standing retail
spaces developed by a Jacksonville com-
pany. The other spaces are unoccupied.
Employees say it has a modest but loyal
local customer base, but very little "exit
business" from busy Interstate 10 a few
hundred yards to the south.
Small, free-standing signs have appeared
on the interstate right-of-way the past two
weeks, and the company says it leased a
portion of a billboard visible to eastbound
vehicles near Sanderson.
Will that work? The answer may deter-
mine if Macclenny keeps Starbucks with its
high-end menu of coffee specialties.
One thing's for sure: the Department
of Transportation frowns on free-standing
signs along the interstate, and they stay up


only until spotted by state employees, who
pull them out of the ground and pitch them
into the trash.
One Starbucks aficionado, Macclenny
banker Frank Brown, believes the closure


decision is premature and he said as much
and more in a July 10 memo to district
manager Robert Ostrow.
"I would urge you and your company
to take a long-term view of Baker County
before exiting," read Mr. Brown's memo.
"Starbucks will definitely want to re-enter
this market in the future and the cost of re-
entry will be much increased..."
His correspondence pivots on project-
ed growth figures for Baker County, for
the decade ending in 2000 (20.5 percent)
and projected the next 10 years (possibly
10,000 new households).
"This is a staggering rate of growth and
one that a prudent business cannot afford
to overlook," argued Mr. Brown, a self-
described Starbucks "frequent flyer" who
claims he's in the store sometimes 2-3
times daily.
Starbucks employees including shift
manager Christy Davis have also been talk-
ing up support for keeping it open.
"We've seen an increase in sales the past
five weeks," she noted without citing fig-
ures. "The signs on the highway may have
helped, and we hope to get the billboard up
next month. We're just telling everybody
the decision will be based on how the store
performs, and we want them to tell their

Summer reading takes offin Sanderson Lease not good enough...


(from page 1)
Jonesville Park in Sanderson is
now in its sixth week and going
strong.
The sessions take place Sat-
urday mornings at the park's
covered picnic shelter. Children
pack onto every inch of one large
wooden picnic table. Ms. Givens
sets up a display of books on the
other. She tells the children that
books are special because they
help you learn knowledge that
will help them live a good life.
"You are here to learn to love
to read and I am here to help
plant that seed," she tells the at-
tentive children. "Why? Because
we care about you and want you
to grow up to be successful men
and women in society."
Instead of just simply sharing
a few stories for their entertain-
ment value, Ms. Given's decided
to design her reading sessions
as mini-seminars to introduce
and reinforce as much positive
information as possible for the
children. She starts with some
history.
"It's important for children to
understand and be proud of be-
ing citizens of their own country.
We recently used the 4th of July
holiday to talk about the history
of America and the meaning of
patriotism," she said.
There is always a review of
the lessons contained in the Ten
Commandments and why they
are important regarding how
people behave and treat others.


Then, several storybooks are
read and discussed. To close the
program, a child is selected to
lead the recitation of the Lord's
Prayer. Then comes snack and
playtime.
The reading selections for
this day all involve animals. Ms.
Givens is a big fan of the work of
children's book author and illus-
trator Eric Carle, whose books
combine simple, clear, engaging
content and vivid images. First,
she reads From Head to Toe,
which invites children to partici-
pate.
Ms. Givens stands, reads the
first line, then bends low to the
ground.
"I am a giraffe and I bend my
neck." She shouts to the kids,
"Can you do it?"
The eager kids bend forward,
too.
"I can do it!" they shout.
Ms. Givens straightens up,
then gives the air a swipe with
her foot.
"I am a donkey and I kick my
leg. Can you do it?
The story proceeds through a
succession of animals and a feat
performed by each. Children are
challenged to do the same.
This gives them a workout
from head to toe while they learn
the basic body parts, develop lis-
tening skills and the ability to
follow instructions.
From Head to Toe is a fa-
vorite book of program partici-
pant Curtis Harmon. In fact, the
young man made a special re-

friends, too."
All well and good, says Mr.
Ostrow, who also manages
properties in Gainesville. Lake
City and Green Cove Springs,
but the Seattle-based company
will make closing decisions on
hard numbers.
"We're doing what we can;
we're not sitting there saying
it's a done deal." he said. "We're
in a brave new world for busi-
ness, and the stores not making
money will go. I love the pas-
sion they're showing (for keep-
ing it open), but does that pay
the mortgage?"
If the sales figures turn up-


ward, the situation could be re-
evaluated, he said.
Starbucks' announcement
early this month had little effect
on its stock price that has fallen
steadily the past year in a sag-
ging retail market. On Tuesday
of this week, it was trading at
$13.75 a share, well under half
of its value in July, 2007.
Analysts had long cautioned
that the company was "canni-
balizing" itself by saturating its
urban markets with new stores.
It was only in recent years that
stores opened in fringe areas
like Macclenny.
Most of the stores on the
chopping block have only been
operating since 2006.


quest for it to be read. He likes
the message of personal chal-
lenge contained in the story.
"If the animals can do it, then
I know I can!" he declares.
The children also enjoy an
expanded, updated version of
the old classic story Mary Had
A Little Lamb. Ms. Givens uses
the story to teach some spiritual
and practical parallels. Wool
comes from sheep and is used to
make blankets and clothing; we
are like sheep in the Kingdom of
God and Christ is our shepherd.
Since having sheep at school is
against the rules, what are some
other rules we must follow at
school? Why are rules good?
The children are often re-
minded of manners throughout
the reading sessions and thanked
for listening and not talking
while the story is being read.
"Thank you for not talking
while I am talking," said Ms.
Givens. "That shows respect for
others and that's a very good
characteristic for you to have."
After the reading session con-
cludes, Ms. Givens takes a mo-
ment to recognize the children
for various things. Today, chil-
dren from the Coleman family
are recognized for their perfect
attendance of the program. Oth-
ers are recognized because they
are visiting all the way from
Alaska.
Then comes the well-deserved
reward, a tasty snack!
Even here, a lesson comes
into play patience and wait-
ing your turn. The kids line up
and step forward one at a time to
receive a pastry treat. Then they
take to the playground equip-


ment until time to go home.
Of the success of the reading
program, Ms. Givens is quick
to compliment the children for
their dedication in attending and
the adults who supported them
in their participation. She also
credits the Lord with her inspira-
tion to get the program started.
"When an idea gets a hold of
me I just have to go forward with
it," she said. "Just have faith and
the Lord will make a way."
The last program during the
summer will be July 19 at 10:30
at Jonesville Park. Ms. Given's
is hoping to organize a similar
program for the fall, to possibly
take place in October.

those outside would pay $2646
per unit.
On the commercial side, own-
ers inside the city pay $2500 in
water and sewer line capacity
charges and those outside would
pay $3570 per unit.
The new rates are subject to
adjustment annually by City
Manager Gerald Dopson and
City Engineer Frank Darabi.
The proposed measure also
adds a line capacity charge for
new utility connections in the
special assessment district run-
ning along US 90 West. New
customers outside the city limits
and inside the district would pay
$3097, or $132 more than what's
required under current rates.

Gauley said. "They are not moti-
vated to do what we want."
CSX is interested in closing
one or more of the five crossings
in the core city, thereby reducing
the railroad's liability for acci-
dents. The new lease also called
for closing the College Street
crossing.
The commission earlier
agreed to do that, pending the
outcome of lease negotiations.
And according to city offi-
cials, the agreement shields CSX
from much of the legal liability
associated with the leased prop-
erty.
"I don't like it," said Mayor
Gary Dopson. "We've got a one-
sided agreement from a railroad
we don't even want coming
through here."
Per the agreement, CSX can


also terminate the lease at any
time, provided it gives the city
reasonable notice.
"I think they wore us down. I
think this is the best deal we can
get," said Mr. McGauley. "It im-
proves parking and ascetics, but
it still falls short."
The city indicated its displea-
sure with the proposed lease,
which officials termed "boiler
plate" and not custom-fitted to
Macclenny's needs, but it did not
close the door on future talks
with CSX.
Negotiations with CSX could
continue and it was suggested
that comparisons be made with
other lease agreements between
the railroad and municipalities
along the railroad west toward
the Panhandle.
Messages requesting com-
ment were not returned by CSX
spokesman Gary Sease.

THEBACK

PORCH
KELLEY LANNIGAN

I was a Girl Scout briefly back
in the 1970s, and had limited in-
volvement in the organization,
but it had a definite impact on
my growing up experience.
Before schools officially inte-
grated, scouting gave me some
of my first comprehensive en-
counters with people from dif-
ferent ethnic backgrounds. I will
never forget attending a week-
end camp with girls from'other
troops. I was thrust into a group
of girls I'd never met before and
put on a team to run a relay race.
What a race it was, too.
There were seven members
to each team. Instead of carry-
S ing and passing the customary
baton, we had to carry one of the
team members. The person to be
carried was selected and the rest
of the team had to flank her and
carry her to the finish line where
another group was waiting to do
the same. Our group quickly de-
cided who would be carried and
she got into position.
S The whistle blew and off
they went. Things happened so
Quickly, I wasn't even sure what I
was supposed to do and was left
standing there. So was a lovely
black girl. We were both timid
and unsure and for a few mo-
ments watched the other team
members struggling awkwardly
Just to keep their human baton a
few inches off the ground.
"Come on, we got to go!"
yelled the girl next to me. She
reached out and grabbed my
hand and off we went, running
shoulder-to-shoulder and laugh-
ing. Instinctively we knew what
to do. We each ran to one side of
Sthe girl being carried and locked
arms underneath her backside.
Once we lifted her up, it shifted
the point of gravity, provided
balance and changed the entire
dynamic of motion.
Our team took off like light-
ning, our speed practically tri-
pled and we raced ahead with
ease toward the finish line,
where other girls were jumping
up and down and cheering us on.
The counselors were laughing
and clapping, too. It was a great
moment.
The playing field is a great
equalizer and the lesson learned
that day is that no one was bet-
ter or worse, richer or poorer,
privileged or underprivileged.
Although we were all different
in certain ways, only when those
differences were combined to
make a whole did we achieve the
outcome we were striving for.
The momentum from that mo-
ment stayed with me for the rest
of the weekend. I only saw my
team partner one other time af-
ter that. She was across the field
entering a building to go to an
arts and crafts session with her
troop. Although we didn't speak,
our eyes locked and we gave
each other a special smile that
confirmed our mutual thoughts:
We did good, didn't we?
The new North Fork Girl
Scout Camp currently being
developed on Black Creek near
Middleburg will be used by
Baker County Girl Scouts in the
near future. There they will have
opportunities to ride horses, go
kayaking. camp. hike, enjoy an
evening campfire and see stars
in the night sky.
Perhaps the most significant
thing the camp will create, how-
ever, will be the opportunities
for them to learn to see past dif-
ferences in other people's cultur-
al or economic background and
instead celebrate the common
human spirit they all share.


An ex-US senator from Texas
found himself in hot water last
week for describing America as
a nation of whiners.
Phil Gramm,
an often blunt-
spoken Demo- IMPRf
crat turned Re-
publican whose JIM Mc
expertise is eco-


nomics. caught
it from the Obama campaign,
whose stock in trade is making
everyone feel as bad as possible
about our present national state
of affairs.
He also caught it from the
McCain side, where Mr. Gramm
has served as an advisor of eco-
nomic matters. "Whiners" was
perhaps too harsh a word, they
suggested.
Mr. Gramm is entirely cor-
rect, and should be apologizing
to no one.
The reason?
It's because whiners are gen-
erally people on the "glass half
empty" side who complain about
this condition or that. As a rule,
they do little to correct whatever
it is they disparage.
What Phil Gramm was say-
ing, simply, is that the United
States has more than an ample
supply of whiners, thank you
very much.
We don't need any more of
them; in fact, we need people
who take an active role in their
own destiny. We need people
who ignore the vacuous state-
ments of politicians and enter-
tainers (the sound bite class),
people who educate themselves
on the best policies to lead us
forward in a new world with a
new economy, and in this presi-
dential year, elect the best per-
son to get us there.
Mr. Obama and Mr. McCain
don't fall into that category, you
might argue, and you would be
right. One of them, however, is
clearly the better choice in light
of the challenges facing this


Since my birth, my country

cans (two from the same family)

years.
I read in high school about
what former President Clinton
called the most dangerous place
on earth the DMZ between
North and South Korea. I took
advanced placement American
History as a junior, which built
a solid foundation for my po-
litical education. It continued in
college with a minor in political
science.
Since then, I've been a politi-
cal junkie, tuning into C-SPAN,
CNN, and other media sources
I've found online. And in do-
ing so, I've come to understand
partisan politics, government
bureaucracy, the politicians and
how they all operate.
So where am I going with all
this?
The cover appearing on the
latest edition of The New Yorker
magazine depicts Senator Barack
Obama in traditional Muslim
garb and his wife with an AK-47
draped over her shoulder.
This left-leaning publication
obviously used the cover be-
cause it's provocative and will
sell more magazines, but the ar-
ticle to which it refers makes the
point that Obama's right-wing
critics often paint him in such a
light, true or not.
Is Obama a Muslim? Is the
presumptive Democratic nomi-
nee for president a terrorist? Did
he really use the Koran to be

point to the
government as
the source of all solutions to our
woes.
Nothing could be more dam-
aging to the American spirit.
Take the gasoline crisis, for
instance.
None of us are happy about it,
but we should be looking at the
sudden spike at the pump as an
opportunity.
Since they don't teach basic
economics in our schools any-
more, maybe this could serve
as a "real life" lesson. Demand

The, answers to these ques-
tions depend on who you ask
- always consider your source.
It wasn't long
oINT ago that a coun-
ty official faxed
The Press an e-
LINT mail saying the
answers to the
INGTON above questions
were likely yes,
and included a link to a page on
www.snopes.com that purport-
edly backed up these assertions.
This official copied and pasted
language from that page in the
e-mail.
The language was something
along the lines of: These things
should be known and readers
should forward this "informa-
tion" to those who don't want to
see a Muslim or even a sus-
pected Muslim in the White
House.
I checked the web site for
myself and it is actually one
that attempts to separate rumor
from fact. On the Obama ru-
mors, which are very pervasive
across the Internet, this site put
most of them in the untrue cat-
egory. That can be seen at www.
snopes.com/politics/obama.
The language copied and
pasted into the county official's
e-mail can be seen at www.
snopes.com/politics/obama/

If you want to know about
Obama and his background,
read the man's books.
He's written two best-sellers
one about his life growing up
without a father and another
about his experiences in politics,
both as a political organizer in
Chicago through to his eventual
election to the Senate.
Like all politicians, you can


going up. That drives the world
price of crude, much of it with
a baseline set due to speculation
on whether future demands can
be met. If there is uncertainty
(there is, for a myriad of rea-
sons) the price remains high.
One way to loosen the re-
lief valve is free up the sup-
ply sources, and that is what is
slowly taking place now that
the public's ten-second attention
span has been stretched.
The US is lucky to have the
reserves, both under land and
offshore, that it has. We have
the technology to get the oil,
cleanly, and government should
get out of the way (government
should be content to collect the
tax revenues). Just the news that
we're going after new sources
will have an effect on the world
market.
Will gasoline drop to $3.50
a gallon? Probably not. But the


choose to take them at their
word, or not. Usually, the truth is
somewhere in the middle and is
more discerned through actions
than rhetoric.
Obama has been attending a
Christian church for more than
20 years. Is it all a charade? A
massive conspiracy to put a
"sleeper" in the White House? I
think not.
My point is this: my experi-
ence in following politics leads
me to believe the pendulum of
the collective American con-
scious will swing back to the
Left in November and history
will be made when the first non-
white president is elected as the
leader of the free world.
What happens next is any-
one's guess.

C i out...
baeroutyres o


price will go down long before
any of that new supply reaches
the retail pump. The same can
be said for other by-products
like jet fuel and plastics.
That, however, is not suf-
ficient. During the interim, we
need to put American ingenu-
ity to work again on alternative
sources. The $4 a gallon situa-
tion has piqued interest in the
private sector to move forward
with technologies like battery
and solar power, and again,
government's only involvement
should be to grant tax incentives
to companies willing to take the
risks.
Phil Gramm is right.
A nation of whiners will sit
around and want government
to solve the problems. The non-
whiners, as they always have,
will get to work.
Whose side will you take?

public schools and silver desig-
nations deal specifically with el-
ementary and secondary schools
that foster a volunteerism pro-
gram made up of students.
All forms of volunteerism are
considered, including tutors, ad-
visors, advocates and mentors.
"Our schools have a reputa-
tion for the role volunteerism
plays. I think Westside has been
recognized for the last 30 years
in that capacity. But this is the
first time all the schools have
been recognized simultaneous-
ly," Ms. Barton said.
Baker County schools at-
tained the following amount of
volunteer hours for 2007-2008:
PreK 1402, Macclenny Elemen-
tary 2304, Westside 5003, Keller
2544, BCMS 2191, and BCHS
3713 for a total of 17,157 hours.
"The benefits of volunteerism
to the schools, the teachers, the
students and the community is
invaluable," said Assistant Su-
perintendent Glenn McKendree.


When Deputy Christopher
Walker exited his patrol vehicle
after chasing down a motorcy-
clist in Sanderson July 7. the
suspect sped up and allegedly
attempted to hit the officer.
Willis Hudson. 22. of Sand-
erson not only faces charges for
fleeing the deputy with a license
suspended nine times, but also
aggravated assault on a law en-
forcement officer, a second-de-
gree felony.
Deputy Walker spotted the
black Susuki about 9:30 pm on
US 90 and its driver with no
eye-protection. The driver, later
identified as Mr. Hudson, turned
north onto CR 229 where the
deputy attempted a traffic stop.
After looking back, the driv-
er accelerated at a high rate of
speed and turned onto Gaskins
Circle and then onto E.J. Paige
Lane.
As the officer approached E.J.
Paige Lane, the suspect was ex-
iting the street and that is when
the alleged attempted assault oc-
curred.
The pursuit continued on CR
229 N. where Mr. Hudson lost
control of the bike while trying
to turn into a driveway. He was
apprehended at gunpoint.
The suspect is charged with
reckless driving, fleeing and
eluding, driving on a suspended
license and aggravated assault
on a police officer.
In another aggravated battery
case this week, three men were
arrested after allegedly beating
up a fourth man at the Waffle
House on S. 6th St. in Macclen-
ny on July 13.
Tim Marlow, 32, no address,
told responding Deputy Walker
he didn't know the first man
who attacked him, but the offi-
cer noted a large knot and sev-
eral abrasions on Mr. Marlow's
face.
Before encountering the vic-
tim, the deputy pulled over the
three suspects identified as
Clayton Scott, 28, Terrell Jack-
son, 26, of Macclenny, and Jo-


seph Reed. 19. as they attempted
leaving the restaurant. Another
deputy detained the trio while
Deputy Walker returned to the
Waffle House and interviewed
witnesses, who stated several
black males had punched and
kicked Mr. Marlow in the head
and chest area before dispers-
ing.
The three black males, when
interviewed, said a group of
white males approached them
using racial slurs and that Mr.
Marlow swung at Mr. Clayton,
missed and fell, striking the
ground with his face.
Felony aggravated battery
charges were filed against all
three suspects.
In other violent incidents this
week:
Three Macclenny men were
charged with disorderly conduct,
a misdemeanor, stemming from
a fight that occurred on Quail
Lane the early evening of July
12. Deputy Walker found a large
crowd in the roadway. The two
suspects fighting, identified as
Quentin Paige, 19, and Steven
Keith, 25, were taken into cus-
tody while a third, identified
as Mr. Keith's brother Terrance
Keith, 18, fled the area.
Brock Brooks, 24, of Is-
lamorada Dr. in Macclenny
was charged with assault for al-
legedly threatening his cousin


Richard McDuffie. 36. a bail
bondsman in Glen St. Mary, the
afternoon of July 7.
The victim told police Mr.
Brooks attempted to provoke
him by saying he would beat
his (expletive) no matter where
he was. Mr. McDuffie's secre-
tary witnessed the threats and
charges were filed with the state
attorney against Mr. Brooks.
SAnother battery occurred
this past week at the Northeast
Florida State Hospital involving
a female patient-to-patient alter-
cation.
The victim. 38. told Deputy
Claude Hurley that her assail-
ant. 31, attacked her for walking
by her room July 9 about 6:00
pm. The older patient said she
was grabbed by the waist from
behind and punched in the face
several times.
Although the deputy didn't
observe any physical marks on
the victim's face or head, she
stated the accused has attacked
her in the past.
Charges were filed with the
state attorney.


Glen man gets 30 days from CEB to comply


BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Charles Guernsey has 30 days
to clean up two of his proper-
ties in Glen St. Mary or face at
least $100 in fines in accordance
with the penalty ordered by the
Baker County Code Enforce-
ment Board during its July 14
meeting.
Complaints were made on
the property of his late father
at 10171 Sherman Ave. in 2007
that led to four Town of Glen St.
Mary code violations for its gen-
eral poor condition, damaged
screens, unprotected wood and a
structurally unsound accessory
structure.
"My daddy was a pack rat,"
Mr. Guernsey told the code
board.
As of the meeting, the screen
and general care violations had
not been resolved in accordance
with town codes and the board
found the property in violation.
"The screen is somewhat re-
paired... but it still has some
rips and holes in it," said county
code enforcement officer Phillip
Thomas.
Many of the same violations
were also found at Mr. Guern-
sey's home at 9943 Clinton Ave.
less than two months ago, most
of which had been corrected, ex-
cept a violation for general junk
and debris.
In both cases, the board ap-
proved a $50 fine plus $10 per
day for each day. up to 180 days.
the violation continued beyond
the 30-day grace period.
"I'll get both done in 30 days."
Mr. Guernsey promised.
The Guernsey cases were
originated by Glen's code officer
Donna Loadholtz. The town has
a pact with the county board to
hear violation cases.
In another case, the board
gave William and Deborah Pre-
vatt 90 days to sell or otherwise
remove a mobile from their
Olustee property at 3202 Ar-
rowhead St.
The couple lives in the mobile
home on the three-acre property
and is in the process of moving
into a conventional home there
as well. However, the property
is zoned Agriculture 7.5-acre,
which means the lot is only per-


mitted one unit per 7.5 acres.
The lot is also too small for its
zoning category, but was grand-
fathered in as a non-conform-
ing lot of record dating back to
1991.
Beyond the existing viola-
tion, Mr. Thomas said the Pre-
vatts would not be eligible for
an occupancy permit for the
new home if the mobile home
remained when the building de-
partment performed its inspec-
tion. That situation, in turn, is
holding up permanent financing
on the structure that was moved
onto the tract from Lake City.
Mr. Prevatt said he's tried un-
successfully for several months
to sell the trailer but also owns
property nearby on which to
place the mobile home, however;
he wasn't aware of the zoning on
that land either.
Mr. Thomas said it's unlikely.
the alternate property is zoned
for storing a mobile home,
something only permitted in in-
dustrial and commercial zoning
categories.
"The key seems to be sell-


ing it," said board chairman Jim
McGauley.
"I can't wait to sell it," replied
Mr. Prevatt.
If the mobile home is not re-
moved within 90 days, the board
approved a $50 fine plus $15 per
day for each day the property
remains in violation, for a maxi-
mum of 180 days.
In other business:
The board closed a case on
Annie Mae Parker's Sander-
son property at 10127 CR 127
N., which had been cited for a
mobile home skirting violation
caused by a vehicle that crashed
into the residence last year. No
fines were levied against Ms.
Parker's property.


The board reduced a $5905
lien against Willie Clayton's
Sanderson property to $2952 due
to Mr. Clayton's financial hard-
ship. His daughter, Ila Farmer,
said she only recently discov-
ered the nine-year-old code vio-
lations existed and immediately
corrected them.
"After I found out, it took a
week to clean up," she said, add-
ing that her father's sole income
is about $700 each month for a
disability.
All of the property owners
found in violation must also pay
an $85 administrative fee to the
county to recoup the cost of in-

that spouse was not in atten-
dance. Many used terms such as
beautiful, lovely, intelligent and
super to describe their wives.
Some had a different take on
the matter which coaxed a few
hearty laughs from the audi-
ence:
"We've made it another year
together and I can't tell you how
proud she is to be with me ..."
"My wife came from Georgia
and it cost me $1.38 to ship her
across the state line ..."
"My wife is,at home, toes up

"Well, my wife is in Cancun,
Mexico on business and so re-
grets not being here ..."
Combating blindness and
eye disease has been a tradi-
tional mission of Lions Clubs
since their inception. During his
speech, Mr. Stuart gave a recap
of the recent statistics regarding
this effort internationally:
Donation of 109,000 pairs of
eyeglasses to needy recipients.
Over 7 million cataract sur-
geries performed.


"I've been just about every-
where in this world, and I can
tell you we don't face here the
level of need that exists in other
countries," he said. "This is the
best place in the world to live
and we are lucky and should do
all we can to help others."
As Mr. Stuart inducted the
officers, .he charged each with
the challenge to perform to the
highest ability of service for the
greater good of their local club
and to work toward the compre-
hensive goals of the international
Lions Club organization.
Other n'ew Officers are as
follows: Dennis Collins, vice-

Neglect charges against

woman found drunk at home


A Sanderson woman found
unconscious while her children
slept was arrested on child ne-
glect charges July 7.
When the husband, Kevin
Antrosiglio, 29, of Cow Pen Rd.
called home throughout the eve-
ning, his children answered the
phone. But after speaking with
his wife, Christina Antrosiglio,
28, on the phone, he told Deputy
Patrick McGauley he left work
early because she sounded "ex-
tremely intoxicated" during their
conversation and he was worried
for the welfare of his four-year-
old boy and five-year-old girl.
He returned home with the
deputy to find his wife laying
on the floor surrounded by pills
shortly after 11:00 pm.
The deputy was successful
at waking the mother after re-
peated attempts and summoned
a rescue unit. However, she was
unable to answer simple ques-
tions.
After EMS determined Ms.
Antrosiglio was not in danger of
an overdose, the only informa-
tion the woman could provide
was that she believed she drank
two beers and a half-pint of rum
that evening.
Mr. Antrosiglio said no pills
were missing after counting
them, which supported his wife's
statement that she didn't ingest
any pills.
Both children were found
asleep in their bedrooms and
the Department of Children and
Families was notified of the in-
cident.
The same day, a two-year-old


boy from Macclenny went miss-
ing in Sanderson about 3:45 am,
but was soon located by a canine
team from Baker Correctional
Institute.
The boy's father, Timothy
Hodges, 44, of Sanderson told
police he went to a neighbor's
home to switch a load of laundry
and returned to find a back door
open. He then called police to
locate his son, who he has cus-
tody of every other weekend.
The boy was released into his
mother's custody and no charges
were filed.

Couple charged in grand theft


of more than $1 K from pond


A Baldwin couple was jailed
on July 13, charged with looting
a vehicle at the Ocean Pond boat
ramp of $11,245 in cash and
checks, credit cards and other
purse contents, all of which
were later recovered on a road-
side and in a dumpster at the
campground.
Booke4 for burglary of a ve-
hicle, grand theft and criminal
mischief were Charles Whaley,
26, and Heather Jordan, 23,
both of the same Baldwin ad-
dress. Deputy Steven Jones also
learned that Mr. Whaley was
wanted in Duval County for
credit card fraud, and that his
driver's license was suspended.
The couple was stopped about
7:20 that evening by Christo-
pher Cason, a US Forest Ser-
vice officer, on Forest Road 210
following a report of a vehicle
burglary at the campground on
Ocean Pond's north shore.
The suspects'vehicle matched
that relayed in the initial report,
and Officer Cason noted that sev-
eral items were pitched out the
passenger side window when he
conducted the traffic stop. They


turned out to be credit cards and
gift cards.
The cards and other property
belonged to Linda, Pamela and
Ruth Linton, all of McAlpin,
Fla, who left their 1991 Nis-
san sedan at the boat ramp for
a brief time and returned to find
the right front passenger win-
dow had been smashed. The
credit cards, traveler's checks,
a Treasury Department stimulus
check for $900 and a bank check
for $10,000 had been taken from
their wallets.
Mr. Whaley and Ms. Jordan
initially said a male suspect
had given them the credit cards.
Deputy Jones said Jim Ellis, an-
other USFS officer, found the
remainder of the stolen items in
the dumpster while conducting
a canvass of the area around the
crime scene.
Several other cases of grand
theft were reported to the sher-
iff's department recently, none
resulting in arrests.

dence off North Boulevard in

Economic stimulus


check stolen before


getting to its owner


A north county man was
charged with grand theft for
cashing a $900 US Treasury
stimulus check that belonged to
another man who once lived at
his address off Lila Harvey Rd.
Samuel Shelton, 29, was
booked for grand theft after he
was questioned by Deputy Chris
Walker the evening of July 7.
The check had been issued to
John Brazeale, 37, who recently
moved to another residence off
Hassie Johns Rd. and learned
that day his check was forged
and cashed. He also believed the
bogus signature was the work of
Mr. Shelton.
The suspect told Deputy
Walker he held the check a few
days before cashing it at a Jack-
sonville convenience store.
In other arrests, a 16-year-old
female from the Sanderson area
was released to her parents after
being charged with shoplifting
at the Macclenny Wal-Mart.
A store security employee
saw the girl place about $65
worth of cosmetics and tooth
whitener strips in a purse and
attempt to leave the Supercenter
the evening of July 9.
SA complaint for petty theft
was filed late on July 8 against
Brett Johnson, 18, of Macclenny
for allegedly taking lumber from
a construction site in the Sands
Pointe subdivision off CR 23A
late on July 8.
Deputy Paul Chance said he
stopped the suspect on South 5th
St. based on a description from a
neighbor who called police. Mr.
Johnson said he took the two-
by-fours from aside a dumpster
and thought they were surplus.
Deputy James Marker ar-
rested Gregory Stacy, 18, of

and four children about midnight
July 11 when a trio of unknown
suspects opened fire in the rear
of her Minnesota Ave. residence.
No one was injured in the inci-
dent, but deputies found six spent
bullet casings on the ground.
Deputy Claude Hurley also
said a bullet fragment was found
in a 1989 Mercury parked nearby
off South 9th St.
Yolanda Reed, 31, said she
fled to the closet with the chil-
dren after seeing three black
males outside a rear window at
the residence and hearing gun-
fire.
She told Deputy Hurley she
first noticed the suspects when
she was seated on a step at her
front door, and they were walk-
ing west on Minnesota.
Ms. Reed said they had dark
shirts on their heads and were
brandishing pistols.
She then said she ran inside
and advised the children to close
windows. She called the sher-
iff's department.after hearing.the
shots and going into the closet.
The incident was initially re-
ported as a burglary.
Deputy Hurley said he recov-
ered two .9 mm casings and four
.40 mm.
Shortly after, Betty Carter re-
ported the damaged windshield
on her vehicle parked 300 yards
from the scene of the gunfire.
Deputy Matt Riegel found a
bullet fragment on a rear seat,
and the windshield damage was
consistent with a bullet hole.

In Memory
of Jake
1/25/84 7/21/07

It's been a year since you were
tragically taken away.
Thoughts of you fill our heads
every single day.
You touched our hearts down to
our very souls,
Tears we cannot hide flow out
of control.
We never had the chance to say,
"I love you" or even "Goodbye."
It's so hard to deal with this, no
matter how hard we try.
Thank God for memories and
things we can't erase.
We know you're an angel
With a big smile on your face!
WE LOVE AND MISS YOU,
COUSINS, FRIENDS AND FAMILY

But God loved you best.

Heritage Oaks vandals


Three acts of vandalism, two
of them at homes under con-
struction, were reported over a
two-night period last week at the
Heritage Oaks development off
CR 23B in north Macclenny.
Someone plugged a bath-
room sink and turned on the
water at a residence off Blue-
berry Lane being built by Drees
Homes. The vandalism occurred
overnight July 9 and resulted in
$400-$500 in damage, accord-
ing to the contractor.
Entry was through an open
garage door.
The same method was used
the same night to enter another
home off Huckleberry Trail,
where someone tossed paint
on a stairwell and nearby wall.
Richmond Homes put the dam-
age estimate as high as $600.
Clara Roberts, who lives
on Huckleberry, reported paint


smeared on the hood, wind-
shield and bumper of her 2000
Chevrolet pickup. The vandal-
ism took place overnight July 8.

YMCA flagfootballleague begins..
Jamar Farmer leaps for a catch as opposing defender Jimmy Lauramore defends
during a Baker County YMCA 4-on-4 flag football league game. The league has
become extremely competitive and some Baker County teams are capable of playing
with any team in Florida. While the atmosphere on the sidelines is more laid back,
the action between the lines is intense. Games are held on Saturday mornings at the
YMCA fields from 8:30 to 11:30. The league has over 60 participants ranging in age
from 18 to 55, and is in the second of more than ten weeks of games. It draws players
from all around Jacksonville with its laid back approach and highly skilled play.

BAilKER COUNTY TOUCHDOWN (CLUBI

Coaches Meeting


Season


over for


champs
BY CHUCK NICHOLS
Press Staff
The rigorous Little League
tournament schedules are fin-
ished for Baker County teams.
The girl's District 11 Champi-
onship, hosted by Baker County,
finished with Yulee getting past
Baker County to win the 9-10
year-old league, and Callahan
taking the junior league girl's
title. Highlands garnered the se-
nior league crown and the Baker
County All-Stars becoming the
district champions in the 11-12
age division.
After winning the district
title, the All-Stars headed to a
regional tournament in DeBary,
Fla. where they ended the sea-
son July 12.
The girls were unable to find
the dominating pitching, hitting
and fielding that led them to the
district crown undefeated. They
lost their first game 5-9 to Del-
tona. The final loss came at the
hands of Mims by a score of 7-
9.
The great play and hard work
put forth by this team has earned
the Baker County Little League
its first-ever district title. The
girls will always have that dis-
tinction for their efforts this
summer. They'll also have a
constant reminder as the cham-
pionship banner flies at the soft-
ball complex.
The 11-year-old boy's Little
League All-Star team was the
last team to fall.
A strong Yulee squad man-
aged to hold off Baker County
for a second time and dropped
them from the tournament.
Congratulations to all the
All-Star teams that represented
Baker County in various parts
of Florida. Win or loose, these
players, coaches and parents put
forth a great effort to represent
Baker County.
Despite ultimately loosing,
each of the All-Star players have
amassed great memories, be-
come better athletes, developed
the work ethic and discipline
necessary to win. and estab-
lished team leadership skills.

YMCA campers stay busy


BY CHUCK NICHOLS
Press Staff
The Baker County YMCA Summer Camp has
grown to more than 100 daily participants due to
the high quality camp experience for the young
boys and girls.
And that's a significant jump from last year, said
YMCA Program Director Freddie Oca.
Mr. Oca gives a lot of the credit to current and
former counselors who have worked to ensure a
great experience for each of the youngsters.
Campers get 12 hours of fun and activity for the
children each day. Activities include bible study,
values class, sign language, baseball, football, soc-
cer, kickball, dodgeball, basketball, arts and crafts,


swimming and singing.
The camp also offers weekly field trips like ice
skating, rock climbing, movies, zip lining at Key-
stone Heights, Marineland or Summer Waves.
Speakers have also entertained the children
while teaching them about tobacco awareness and
forestry issues. A trip to the Baker County Sheriff's
Office also took place.
"The children go home tired and the parents are
happy," Mr. Oca said.
The YMCA provides financial assistance to
more than 65 percent of its campers attending the
weekly sessions. There is still time to enroll for
a week this summer; contact the Baker County
YMCA at 259-0898.


1rl4 YOUR HEALTH
By Joseph Ruis
B.S. ATC/L, CSCS, ES

The mindset you have when trying to lose weight, or get healthier, can '
ultimately determine your success or failure. One area I:commonly see as
a stumbling block in a balanced approach to weight loss iswhat some: see:
as the most important the weight scale. Yes, the ery tbool many 'of us
use to quantify our results can be the very thing that hinders, or limits, our
progress. ''
It is essential to keep a proper perspective on what is truly important
when trying to get healthier. Your weight loss goals should not depend sole-
ly upon the achievement of a number on the scale. The primary components
of weight loss should include becoming healthier, which includes improve-: esRu s
- ments in blood pressure, blood glucose levels, cholesterol, body composi-
tion, and cardiovascular efficiency just to name a few. Simply put, it is not all about your weight
on the scale. The scale is merely one of many areas in which your weight loss progress should
be measured. Keep this in mind as you continue your journey towards achieving your weight
lossgoals. ,
