82nd Year, Vol. 12Winner of 7 state awards for journalism excellence in 2010 75 JULY 14, 2011T B C P THURSDAY rrfntbrfbfrfrrJOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comBaker County is now home to a Florida Champion tree. The 125-foot-tall swamp chestnut oak located on Teresa Matthews 3-acre property on Gilford Davis Road west of Glen St. Mary has a nearly 16-foot circumference and an average crown spread of 95 feet. Not long after The Press re ported the absence of any Flor ida Champion trees in Baker County, the states Forest Ser ing calls from landowners hop ing to change that fact. We received many calls re garding the article that led to the measuring of several trees around the county that were rather large, however, only two of them were close enough to the current state champions that I nominated them as chal lengers, said County Forester Andy Lamborn last week. I nominated a swamp chestnut oak and sycamore tree as chal lengers, but only the swamp chestnut was big enough to a be a new state champion. The Florida Forest Service tracks the largest trees of each species native to the state using a point system based on tree height, circumference the distance around the trunk at 4 feet off the ground and aver age crown spread, which is the average of the crown spread at its longest and shortest points. The scoring assigned the oak points more than the former champion at Ichetucknee State Park near Fort White. tall with a circumference of 13.4 feet and an average crown spread of 116 feet. The reason ours won was because its a lot fatter, if you will, Mr. Lamborn said. The new Florida Champi on Swamp Chestnut Oak was years ago, the forester estimat ed. After discovering she owned the largest swamp chestnut oak on record in Florida, Ms. Mat thews, who moved to the property a little more than a year ago, began asking her neigh bors about the large oak tree. She said nearby residents believed a man who lived at an old hotel nearby brought seeds in from somewhere else and planted them locally. Today the tree shades a play ground and trampoline and sits directly behind the home Ms. Matthews shares with her husband and two dogs. Some of its long limbs have been trimmed to protect the residence. The tree is absolutely gor geous, she said. The Press story about big trees in the area, but the lack of any champion trees, also spurred the discovery of the second largest sycamore tree on record in the state. It was planted more than a century ago on whats now Clin ton Freemans 32-acre tract on South Ernie Bryant Road south County line.

Mr. Kilgo, 55, of Mac clenny was originally charged with negligent ho micide. He had been free on The 21-member jury, sworn in earlier that morning, heard evidence from three witnesses surrounding the death of Joshua (Brandon) Fish, 26, killed chest as he came over a pool fence at the residence of his mother Debbie Fish on Fern Street. Mr. Kilgo, who called police and told a dispatcher he had shot a breaking and entering suspect, told sheriffs inves tigators he was seated by the pool with the gun in his lap. Earlier in the day, he and Mr. Fish argued at the residence and he said he feared the vic tim would return that after noon or evening. Though grand jury delibera tions are secret, the panel like ly reviewed statements made to investigators that weekend by Mr. Kilgo and Mrs. Fish, who was not home at the time of the shooting but had been there earlier that day. The statements likely in cluded the fact that the victim and boyfriend had a stormy relationship that reportedly included two prior physical confrontations during which Mr. Fish beat the accused. Mrs. Fish was subpoenaed to the hearing, as were Investi gator Steve Harvey of the sher well, the victims girlfriend. The states case was presented by State Attorney Bill Cervone of Gainesville.

Page 2 T B C P ursday, July 14, 2011The sycamore stands 105 feet tall with a 12.3-foot circumference and average crow spread of 94 feet. It fell 11 points shy of the current Florida champion in Orange County. The local tree was planted by Mr. Freemans uncle, according to what he and his older brother can remember. The uncle used its branches as switches for his horses. Mr. Freeman, 63, recalls playing with his grandfather under the tree as a boy. To my best recollection of when I was a little boy, it seemed to me it was a big tree then, my grandpa used to sit under it and us kids wed play around him and pick at him, he said. Though Mr. Freemans family moved to Lake Butler after his father died in 1955, the land stayed within the family, eventually passing to him and his siblings. Mr. Freeman and his wife Marie have spent the last 40 years together on the property. My wife happened to see the article in the paper so we called, he said. Andy [Lamborn] came and looked at it, measured, and called us back and told us it was the second largest in the state of Florida on record. The tree was struck by lighting once, but the damage has since healed over. In the summer the sycamore completely shades the couples nearby home from the morning sun and its large leaves never seem to quiet. I dont care how still it is, it will have its own breeze. A leaf will be blowing somewhere in it, said Mr. Freeman. The tree is prettiest in the spring, helps cool the house in the summer and warm the house in the winter, when the leaves are shed and used for mulch. And while some of the sycamores long limbs nearly touch the ground, they arent trimmed unless they wither. Thats because my wife wont let me trim them, he said. She likes to see them hanging low. Of course I have to keep the dead limbs trimmed back and picked up. Id hate to see it go, I can tell you that. See video of both the state Champion swamp chestnut oak and the second largest sycamore in Florida, including interviews with Mr. Freeman and Mr. Lamborn, at www.bakercountypress.com. Patrol spokesman Lt. Bill Leeper. The family resides just two blocks from the middle school at the Baker Manor apartments at the northwest corner of South 6th and Lowder streets. There are no crossing guards during summer school. Word of the tragedy quickly spread to school officials this week. One of Sean Connells teachers, Scott Wendel, described him as a very inquisitive child who loved science and made tremendous academic strides last school year. It was always why this or why that, said an emotional Mr. Wendel, who has spent more than a year teaching the youth alongside fellow Westside teacher Brandi Roth. Hed come up with questions that were very outside the box, questions that could even make a teacher think ... The growth he made this last year was amazing. I was so proud of him, Mr. Wendel said. Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson cut short a vacation and returned to meet with the victims family late Monday evening. The next morning middle school principal Sherry Barrett visited them as well. Later that day Ms. Raulerson accident with The Press. They are just heartbroken and still in a state of shock, she said by phone, pausing momentarily to collect her emotions. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, and the big sister. For her, coping with this will be tough. Its a tough time for all of them ... Its been absolutely heartbreaking and devastating for all of us. I was on vacation, but I came back because these are our children. We love them. It wasnt any easier for Mr. Wendel. I want everyone to know how much he meant to us, he said. He was a special young man.

The jury sits for a six-month term unless extended and rouder cases, but has wide latitude to investigate criminal or suspected criminal activity. Though Mr. Kilgo was not der, Mr. Cervone opted to air the evidence in front of the grand jury. I felt considering the circumstances in this case that it was important and appropriate to have the community hear it and make a decision rather than us making it ourselves, commented the chief prosecutor.

Indulge me, please, in yet an other take on the Casey Antho ny case to add to the hundreds youve already read and heard in the print and electronic media. Last weeks verdict, absent of the wide spread outrage that Ms. Anthony is indeed re sponsible for the death of her child, has great value as a lesson in our system of jurisprudence. The raw emotion brought forth by the real-life tragedy con ditioned a large portion of the American public to assume Ms. Anthonys guilt, and subsequent ly, the jurys obligation to af It didnt happen that way, and for a reason. People are confusing their in stincts about her culpability with what the state of Florida and all other 49 states requires to render a guilty verdict. The state never connected her directly to Caylees body and nev That leaves the door wide open to beyond and to the exclusion of a reasonable doubt. The jury walked right through that door. Well hear more sentiment from jurors in coming months how gut-wrenching that distinc tion was during deliberations. My guess is a majority of the jury felt Ms. Anthony had plenty to do with her childs death. They sim ply couldnt say with certainty what that involvement was. It might be different if Ameri can juries had options like those in Scotland guilty, not guilty and not proven The latter is precisely what we have in the Anthony case. The circumstantial evidence present ed by the state was substantive and damning, but it simply wasnt enough. The not prov en option is tantamount to declaring We think youre guilty, but the state wasnt able to bring Methinks the public is having a hard time with the verdict for the same reason we are a bit weak on critical thinking when it comes to other forms of government. Our schools dont teach this stuff much anymore and, sadly, our rule of law system isnt dis cussed much or at all at home. Thus, when many of us are con fronted with the Anthony verdict we jump to another rail the emotional substituting for stud ied reasoning based on our sys tem of justice. Youre also seeing the Anthony verdict bundled up with the notorious O.J. Simpson case. Not so fast. There are glar ing dissimilarities, chief among them the fact that the Simpson jury ignored fast and conclusive DNA evidence linking him to the crime. That jury had no intention tim to shameless exploitation of race-based paranoia that plagues us yet today. You simply cant say that about the Anthony jury. One similarity: Like Mr. Simp son, the acquittal is just the start of what likely will be a miserable rest of her life. There lies the justice. Some years ago I watched a hilarious movie called Happy, Texas about a pair of on-thelam convicts pretending to be drama guys helping to teach a bunch of 5to 7-yearolds how to win a beauty pag eant. They know nothing about drama or beauty pageants and have to make it up as they go along while hiding from the law. It was incredibly funny watching them make up choreography, paint cardboard trees and teach little girls how to be stars. Their signature song and dance is a wonderful Bjork song called Its Oh So Quiet Naturally, as we host drama camp for 5-13 year olds, one of our numbers had to be the song from Happy, Texas. Our 5to 7-year-old campers were little mice sneaking around a living room and dancing their ears off when the family fell asleep. It was unbearably cute. In fact the cuteness factor at camp has been off the charts. Weve never done a camp before. With all the other drama stuff weve done at BCHS it just never occurred to us. My daughter Sara Beth, a professional actress at a reper tory theatre in Tennessee last year, suggested it when she came home to teach English and drama at the high school. We had a huge response with 75 kids signing up for the two ses sions. Im used to working with young kids in shows. We had about 30 in Charlottes Web this past spring, but somehow its differ ent in camp where you get to see them for hours on end. Sara Beth is running the camp with about 10 counselors from the high school and com munity theatre drama groups. The counselors are having as much fun as the kids. In fact, one of our lead counselors, Josh Willoughby, is thinking of go ing back to school to become a teacher because hes found it so gratifying. I leave most of the camp stuff to them. I just pop in and out from time to time to check on things and make sug gestions. Ill walk into a classroom and little children will hug me. They dont really know me; some of them have never been in shows before. I guess little kids are just huggers. If you stand still long enough, youll look down and have a 5-year-old attached to your leg like a grin ning barnacle. enon when I visited the Kin dergarten Center as part of the teacher-training program at the high school. I would visit my in terning teachers and invariably get hugged. One afternoon I was walking to a classroom to see an intern and passed a group of little kids coming back from lunch. All of a sudden three or four of them ran and latched on to me. I looked wide-eyed at the teacher and she just shrugged. You get used to it, she said. I suppose. It surprises me a little though. Im not the friendliest looking guy. I have a goatee and frown lines and my high schoolers dont quite know what to make of me. Little kids and animals, however, see right through my stern exterior. For some reason, they like me. Babies who cry at strangers are fascinated by me. I guess its the beard. Dogs who growl and bite others come up and sniff my hand and get their ears scratched. Camp has been big fun and weve discovered some wonder ful new talent. About half of the kids are brand new and have never been in any of our shows but weve been pleasantly sur prised by the level of raw talent just looking to be honed. Theres a lot of talent in Baker County. In fact, its been so much fun that were thinking about reprising Annie in the spring. Its been about eight or 10 years since we last did the show. Time to go check in on an other classroom. Id better spray Pam on my legs so the 5-yearolds slide off or Ill be there for a while.Dear Editor:In response to Joel Adding tons column last week, it should be pointed out that Governor year. His inauguration was Janu ary 3 2011. Second, did the women wear ing the Pink Slip Rick T-shirts lose a private jobs or a govern ment job? Governor Scott said he would create private sector jobs, not increase taxpayers burden by in creasing government jobs. Governor Scott said he would trim the budget, which could mean elimination of government jobs. The legislature develops the budget; he signs it. Third, the governor did not cut NEFSH jobs, the administra tor [Joe Infantino] of the hospital did. Again, the state legislature made cuts to the budget to live within the law and the Florida Constitution to balance the bud get and decrease the burden on taxpayers. Fourth, since January 2011 Governor Scott has cut 1100 un necessary regulations to open Florida to corporate investments for private jobs, not government jobs. Fifth, there is an site online from the governors office to look at who makes what in the government sector: Florida Has the Right to Know.gov. It has salaries, contracts, etc. thats transparency, Joel. Sixth, the loss of private jobs in Baker County occurred pri or to Governor Scotts election: more than 200 jobs at the tile company and more than 100 at the wire company. Where are the pink galoshes for these residents?Kate Svagdis Macclenny While the Macclenny area received a nearly 5-inch drenching the evening of July 7, other areas may have gotten more or less wet as storms moved across the region. We asked our Facebook friends the following day, How much rain did you get yesterday evening? Heres what they had to say ...Dana Reilly: Over here on North Lowder Street the runo ditch on the right side of my house was overow ing its banks and ooding my yard. I believe this is due to the new culverts and increased water ow on Lowder to that runo ditch. Going to be talk ing to the county about deepening it. I dont think I should be dealing with ooding every time we have a hard rain. Richard Clark: Three inches in Cop per Creek. Tammie Johnson Valdes: .5 [inches] on Odis Yarborough! Dorinda Rindy: and one tenths of an inch in Maxville. Crystal Summey: Bucket loads. Dwayne Norma: Not enough. Nancy Storch Olive: .28 [inches] in Taylor so far today. Jay Cannaday: Not that much in Cuyler; nothing in the ditches and the roads barely slightly muddy. Lorie Williams: .20 [inches] where I live in the Cuyler area ... Just enough to wet the dirt. Adam Carey: Is it really this slow? Patricia Bailey Strohmetz: Too much! Robert Brown: Here in North Car olina Id say about 3 inches.Then after news broke the car hit ting new children on their way to summer school, condolences began appearing July 11.Edna Mann Medina: I pray they are OK. I see them every morning when I take my son to summer school. Cheryl Rosier Collins: Praying for the two students and the driver and all of their families. I heard it was unavoidable and I cant imagine ever hitting a person (my fault or not). How devastating. I am sure she needs our prayers as much as the students.Join The Press at Facebook.com.

Did you think she could drink out of a creek that has been dried up for weeks due to the drought? Have you ever been without water in over 95-degree heat? What was she supposed to eat? Did you think she would know how to chase a rabbit or a squirrel? Did you think dog food grew in the woods? Did you have any idea as she grew the harness would be too tight? Did you think starvation or dying of dehydration was pref erable to taking her to animal control? She might possibly have found a home or at least been euthanized painlessly. Did you know every time a car passed the corner, she ran out looking for your sorry self. Through the intervention of the good people on the circle, she was fed and given water until a good home was found for her. If I had a magic wand, I would put you in the same situation.Patricia A.

ursday, July 14, 2011 T B C P Page 5The mother of an inmate at county jail was named in a criminal complaint last week for passing to her son marijuana cigarettes, a small container of the drug and rolling papers during a visit on July 6. Lt. Michael Lagle said he received a tip that inmate Andrew Cardenas, 20, of Macclenny was in possession of contraband following the visit with his mother Pamela Thomas, 41, also of Macclenny. The two met in the attorney/ client conference area at the jail that morning for about an hour. The stations have glass separation with small openings designed for passing mail and documents. Lt. Lagle said Mr. Cardenas was searched and produced the contraband from inside his left sock, and admitted he received them from his mother. Maj. Chuck Brannan, the tor, later that day interviewed Ms. Thomas, who is deaf, at her East Ohio Street residence. She acknowledged she brought the items to her son after obtaining them from a friends son in Jacksonville.

The teen quoted him as saying, Im gonna make you run Deputy Jason Bryan interviewed the accused later and he denied the allegation, instead saying the youth walked by him with his hand in a pocket as if he had a weapon.

After sitting vacant for more than two years, the 1950s-era Thrift Hardware and later Hagan Ace Hardware lumber storage building on West Macclenny Avenue is being transformed into an automotive repair garage.

Now were going to get the The owners and Chuck Trotter, who will be leasing the 3,000-square-foot building to operate the repair business, said they plan to have the shop open in about six weeks. Im hoping itll be sooner than after getting the zoning approval. The property, which Hagan Ace abandoned when it moved into a new building farther west on US 90 near Baker County High School, is zoned commercial neighborhood. The CN zone applies mainly to retail stores and mit auto repair shops without a special exception. Before the special exception was granted, Assistant City Manager Roger Yarborough told the zoning board that he had received two telephone calls from people voicing objections to the proposal because they were concerned that the business would become an eyesore like other repair garages that leave equipment, car parts, vehicles and old tires outside. Theyre worried about things Mr. Yarborough said. Mr. Rhoden assured the board that he and Mr. Knabb knew Mr. Trotter well and had discussed the matter with him. Chucks already vowed to adding that the premises will be kept clean inside and out, and customers cars will be kept behind a fence or inside the building. Mr. Trotter, who began working for a Firestone dealership when he was still in high school in the late 1970s, said he owned his own automotive repair business for 20 years in Jacksonville before he and his wife Wendy moved to Baker County in 2005. He said nobody has to worry about the appearance of his garage, which will be called C&W Automotive. Im a very organized, neat in having a junk yard, believe Mr. Yarborough said he believes the repair shop will be an asset to the downtown business district.

REAL ESTATE G arlon W ebbwith PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTONFarmers market during busier times after it moved to city park last March.JOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comMidway through its second season, the Baker County Farmers Market is struggling to attract enough customers to keep its vendors showing up. Last Saturday a handful of vendors were expected to show, but none did, perhaps due to the threat of adverse weather, said Darryl Register, a member of the markets board of directors. Nonetheless, he said, the board is committed to keeping it open until November. Sheila Craig, the owner of a produce shop in Glen St. Mary, secured a booth at the once weekly farmers market after it opened at a new location last March. The markets organizers had decided on a cooler venue the city park on West Boulevard in Macclenny rather than the shopping center parking lot on South 6th Street where the market spent its inaugural season. Ms. Craig said at that time she participated because she feared shed lose customers to competitors if she didnt. But by the beginning of June, the entrepreneur and mother had pulled out of the farmers market. People just started slacking off. It wasnt worth my time to unload everything, set it up and sit out there for four hours for nothing, said Ms. Craig, who is expecting a baby in September. About the same time, in early June, is when business began to slow, according to Mr. Register. Then It was a little better, Mr. Register said. I think part of the reason was the 5K run that started and To draw more people to the market, which runs from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm on Saturdays, organizers have placed advertisements in newspapers, on the radio and at local businesses. Theyve also sought feedback from the public regarding the Saturday schedule. Mr. Register said changing ad placements were not successful at drawing new patrons and most people seemed partial to Saturdays rather than Thursday or Friday. A poll at www.bakercountypress.com showed nearly 70 percent of respondents preferred Saturday over the other days. Weve discussed a different day as a board, but using the best information we have, the best thing to do is stay on Saturday mornings ... My gut feeling, more than anything else, is its the economy, said Mr. Register. Gas was so high, where people were choosing not to make a special trips on Saturday morning to the farmers market. The recent dry spell hasnt helped either. It was so hot and dry the vegetable crops were done, he said. Mr. Register wants the public to know its their investment of time and money that can keep the omy. When youre in need of goods and services and theyre local businesses that can provide them, make a conscious decision to shop and buy local, he said.Police arrested two occupants of vehicles pulled over in trafcounty the past week when they turned up wanted on warrants in Florida and North Carolina. A check with the crime computer database revealed that Leon Waters, 38, of Lake City was wanted in North Carolina for felony breaking and entering. Mr. Waters was a passenger in a 1990 Ford pickup parked on the north shoulder of the road east of CR 231 the afternoon of July 6. Lt. Adam Faircloth stopped to question the occupants thinking the truck had broken down. The warrant alert indicated North Carolina would extradite him. Another occupant, 29-yearold Michael Northrup of Lake City, was wanted in Georgia for was no extradition order so he was not arrested.

Across the country, people dict. The news of Ms. Anthonys acquittal shocked local citizens as thought about the outcome. Dot Lucas, an employee at Walwart in Macclenny, has followed the Casey Anthony case since it began in 2008. She remembers thinking to herself at the beginning, No, she couldnt have done that. How could a mother not report her child missing for a month? But in time, her opinion changed. I cried like a baby when I said. I said to myself, poor Caylee, poor little girl, shes just been written out of the whole thing. I can understand the jurors decision they just didnt have enough to go on but our justice system is supposed to protect the Ms. Lucas says its what didnt get answered that bothers her the why and the how of what happened. Even if a family is dysfunctional, as the Anthony family appeared to be, Ms. Lucas believes its no excuse for Casey Anthonys behavior. Im an 80-year-old grandmother and we didnt do things like this, life just was not like this. Ive got a brand new grand baby and I just think to myself how that could have been my grandshe said. Jamal Lee of Macclenny said he acknowledges that the jury just didnt have the evidence it needed to convict, but was still somewhat surprised by the verdict and has doubts about Ms. Anthonys innocence. The child was gone for 31 days, why didnt she tell the posomething. If you ask me, she still Chuck Redding of Raiford doubts her innocence, too. Its her initial behavior while the child was missing that made me doubt her. Just the way she behaved all the partying. Then, shes found guilty, but only for lyChristie Davis, a manager at Starbucks in Macclenny was very surprised by the verdict. To her, there has been nothing normal about defendants reactions. No normal mother would ever sit on the fact that her child had been missing for a month, so I think that at least she should have been found guilty on some count of child endangerment or neglect. Think of all the resources tied up for six months searching for the child, of the people who volunteered and whose hearts bled for the Anthonys situation. I just couldnt imagine letting it go on like that. I would want a proper burial for my daughter but there seemed to be no remorse, no mourning. This case received so much national attention and now she stands to Josey Crews, a Baker County native and currently a crime segment producer for Good Morning America, was involved with the trial from the initial jury sedict. media personality Nancy Grace, lawyers for both the prosecution and the defense and members of the Anthony family on a daily basis.

Even among the group I work with there was this surprised, I cant believe this silence that followed the anI havent seen the public so emotionally wrapped up in anything since the Jon Benet gardless of anyones personal feelings, mine included, about Caseys behavior or alleged guilt, the burden of proof lay with the state and in the end, there just was not enough concrete physical evidence to convict Mr. Crews acknowledges that the nation became captivated with Caylee and cried out for justice, becoming the voice of the little girl who could not speak for herself. Its understandable that the public wanted justice. Its understandable that everyone expected some level of guilt would be proven, if only aggravated child abuse. But, being a bad mother doesnt necessarily make you a murderer and in the end, it could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

BAKER COUNTY WILDCATS BOOSTER CLUB PHOTO BY KELLEY LANNIGANBuddy Dugger at the Maclenny Moose Lodge.KELLEY LANNIGANFEATURESfeatures@bakercountypress.comIm still in shock, said Buddy Dugger, referring to a prestigious international award presented recently to the Macclenny Moose Lodge. The local lodge received a Shining Star Service Award and was named Lodge of the Year at the 2011 Moose International Convention in Anaheim, California July 1-5. Mr. Dugger and other members of the Macclenny Moose Lodge, including the lodges governor Eugene Lindsey, District 14 president Rudy Waters and Women of the Moose members traveled to the convention. We got a letter in the mail stating that our club had been chosen as one of the five outstanding clubs of the year, but that was all we knew, said Mr. Dugger. Moose International is a fraternal organization that focuses on charity. Members of the approximately 2,000 lodges and their sister group, Women of the Moose, raise funds to support a variety of services to their communities. The organization also supports the Mooseheart Child City and School for children and teens in need in Chicago and Moosehaven, a retirement community for members located in Jacksonville. Little old Macclenny. Its a mystery how we got this international award but we did, said Mr. Dugger, speaking last Friday havent received our Lodge of the Year trophy yet, but its coming. Mr. Dugger, has been an active Moose Lodge member since 2002 and currently is the club administrator. Part of his duties involve frequent submission of detailed reports about the lodges community activities and fundraising events. I guess when they looked at all the documentation, our lodge stood out in that respect, he said. Given the level of dedication of the members and all they do for others, the records speak for themselves, but to be the number one lodge in the US, Great Britain and Canada it just boggles the mind! Charity is what being a Moose is all about, according to Mr. Dugger. In Baker County, it may be a gesture as small as helping someone pay their utility bill in the winter or building access ramps at the homes of disabled senior citizens or assisting families with children suffering from cancer. Attending the convention was an amazing and moving experience for Mr. Dugger, as was receiving the award. Its quite an experience walking up in front of 6,000 people with everyone looking at you, he said. The most rewarding thing, he contends, was hearing the testimony of actual people aided by Moose International. One of those kids helped to go to school by the Moose organization is about to earn a degree in engineering, he said. Something that would have been impossible for him on his own. And hearing the thanks of grateful retirement age people who Moosehaven is taking care of now, that was so moving. This award belongs equally to all our members, said Mr. Dugger. They are some amazing and dedicated people.

According to Sesquicentennial celebrations chairman Larry Rosenblatt, a committee is working on organizing transportation to take groups around to more than a dozen historical sites, many built more than 100 years ago. Maybe a wagon pulled by a tractor or even golf carts for small groups are just some of the ideas we have currently, Mr. Rosenblatt said. Its possible that some of the homes could be open for interior tours, but that will be at the discretion of the owner. Some of the outlying sites will probably require a bus and were working on that possibility, he said. Historic house tour sites in Macclenny will include the Burnsed-Brown Blockhouse in the Heritage Park Village on South Lowder Street, the T. M. Dorman House at 212 S. College St., the Rogers-Rhoden House at 327 S. College St., the Hardware Brown House, at 93 N. 5th St., the Blair House at 23 N. 5th Street; Branch Cone House at 108 N. 5th Street; Judge Dowling House at 371 S. College Street; S. 6th Street; J.O. ThompsonReynolds House at 132 E. Florida Avenue; Crampton-Thompson House at 469 E. Macclenny Avenue; Shuey-Sessions House at Anna Bell Lane off George Hodges Road; Georgia Wolfe House at Chase House at 6069 George Hodges Road. The Baker County Press oftion and restoration in 2005, will also be part of the city tour. Other sites being considered as part of the historic tour are the Garrett School in Baxter, the Barber Plantation near North Lowder Street, the Glen Nursery in Glen St. Mary and Camp Jackson. The J. O. ThompsonReynolds HouseLocated at 132 E. Florida Ave., this Victorian era house was built circa 1883 by a man whose last name was Merritt. The two-story clapboard house had an attached summer kitchen, porches on three sides and beautiful gingerbread scroll work. During the late 1880s, it was used as a fever house where victims of the yellow fever epidemic were treated. The home was purchased and remodeled in 1905 by J. O. Thompson, a shopkeeper who brick building constructed in Macclenny where the Knabb oftoday. The house eventually became rental property and was in great disrepair when purchased in 1981 by William and Sue Krall, who began an extensive remodeling and partial restoration project that lasted for nearly 10 years. Today, a framed print made from a preserved glass negative of the original house hangs in the parlor and gives visitors a view of the structure as it appeared in its heyday when it was known as a showplace. Mr. Krall taught biology at Baker County High School and often worked on the house in his spare time after classes and on weekends. He was also an antiques dealer, helpful in locating appropriate period furnishings When Sue and I bought the house it was about to be condemned, said Mr. Krall. It was truly awful. There was so much damage that had been patched over and over again it couldnt be repaired. I had to tear out sections of walls and start over. I had to make some changes erything I did to the house was in keeping with the architecture of the time it was built. The original porches had been removed and I rebuilt them. The bathroom was on the outside back porch of the house exposed to the elements so I created a new one that was enclosed. Original sections of moulding remained around windows and where it had to be replaced, I matched it as close as possible. Much of the original rolled window glass remains. At that time, according to Mr. Krall, glass was heated until pliable and workers literally rolled The bannister along one section of the staircase came from a local Baptist Church building when it was remodeled. He tore out layers of old linoleum and plywood that obscured ing and created doorways to imThe original stairs were exposed, so he enclosed them, removing a section of wall containing a door to make the living room larger. When he enclosed the stairs he reused the door from the wall to create a closet. Closets throughout the house have been lined with cedar. When they tore down the old 200 Building at the high school in 1973, I bought the white glass inside it, he said. Those are now in the new kitchen. Mr. Krall had one hard, fast rule during the construction. When I realized that Id made the same mistake twice, Id lay down the hammer. That usually meant I was really tired which meant I was getting stupid and might hurt myself, so Id quit and come back the next day, he said. In addition to its beautiful Victorian features, the house has another intriguing aspect. Some people believe the house is haunted. The Kralls lived there from 1991 to about 2000 and over the years, there were a number of spooky happenings. Objects would disappear and then reappear, unexplained. Once during some of the work, Mr. Krall laid a mallet down on ways. When he came back later to continue working, it had disappeared. Eighteen months later, he walked in one day and there it was, on I built a wooden Noahs Ark set for Susan once and I set it inside the upstairs closet, he said. It promptly disappeared and we didnt see it again for 10 years. On the day we moved to a new for anything we might be leaving behind. I opened the closet door and there it was. To this day, we have no explanation. I used to hear this very loud, crazy noise inside the house, like a plate glass door falling over and shattering, said Mr. Krall. There has never been any explanation for it. Other people have commentpresence in the house and there have been reports of people seestairs window during a storm when no one was occupying the house. of the porches for months, said Mr. Krall. And he used to stand at the foot of the stairs looking up at nothing and barking. The Kralls had a friend who once brought over a woman from up north who was visiting Macclenny. When she entered the house, she immediately pointed to the top of the stairs and asked who the children were. There werent any children in the house at that time, but she declared she had seen the images of two children on the stairs, said Mr. Krall. A lot of people died here during the yellow fever epidemic and maybe what she saw were some of those ghosts, I dont know. I know Ive never seen anything like that. Haunted or not, the house today is a testimony to Baker County history. PHOTO BY KELLEY LANNIGANThe J. O. Thompson-Reynolds House on Florida Avenue.rfntbb

ursday, July 14, 2011 T B C P Page 13 BOB GERARD | SPORTS The Wildcat basketball team is hard at work this summer after a rough late fall and winter season this year. Coach Charles Ruise is concentrating on fundamentals, and the prospective players recently returned from Team Camp USA in Tallahassee where they faced off against teams from North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. They did a great job at camp, Ruise said of his young players. They stepped into some new roles and Im proud of how they competed. The Wildcats went directly from the camp in Tallahassee to tournament play in the Trinity Christian League. The Cats lined up against Trinity, Forrest, Baldwin, Eagles View, Fernandina Beach and First Coast Christian. Were continuing to grow from camp, said Ruise. Ive been pleased to see a lot of our players step up. Darrell Johnson, who plays guard and sometimes forward for the Cats, has shown a lot of improvement this summer. Hes really progressed offensively and has picked up his rebounding game. Hes been phenomenal this summer and Ive been really happy with the leadership role hes taken, commented Coach Ruise. Sean Fogarty is looking promising at center and Jessie Gardiner has made a lot of progress. Ruise is also impressed with the commitment hes seen from Malon Hadley and Kendrick Singleton. They are both football players who go from football practice in the morning to basketball in the afternoon, he said. One player the coach is more than familiar with is his son Charles Stookie Ruise. Though hes an incoming freshman, Ruise says his son is playing like a sophomore or a junior. The Cats take on Eagles View July 14 at 7:00 pm at Trinity Christian. They have the Florida First Coast Classic basketball camp coming up on July 18-21 at the BCHS gym. The camp is open to incoming freshmen and JV players and will stress fundamentals, role playing, team play and how to be a success on the basketball court. It runs daily from 9:00 am to noon and Ruise and the Wildcat varsity will be the counselors.

The Waves have been a contender every year for the First Coast Championship so the Bullets had their work cut out for them. The Waves were threetime winners before stumbling The Winston Ys state-of-theart pool had a few surprises for time many of the Bullets used a starting block. Climbing up and looking down on the water some 3 feet below was intimidating for both the young and old members of the team, said Coach Andy Johnston. They also discovered that the meet was going to be timed electronically. Most of our warm up was spent getting the kids acclimated to the new wrinkles, said Johnston. That being said, the ond in points but won a surprising number of races. Surprising to the Waves that is. Baker Countys boys team nearly pulled off a major upset but was edged out 445 to 391 despite the Waves having twice as many competitors. The girls from the Macclenny Y didnt fare quite so well. The times the size of the Bullets and the locals were outscored 839 to 274. the Bullets included Braeden Knight, Ethan Knight, Landen Hickman, Carson Shedd, Chase Reynolds, Mark Ray, Hannah Peterson and Dillon Ray.
