Deputies converged on a red Toyota pickup driven by Brandon J. White, 30, as it entered the eastbound entrance ramp from CR 125 onto the interstate about 2 pm. Minutes earlier, police had been alerted that Mr. White had told acquaintance Tabitha Courson that he intended to rob another store that afternoon. Earlier that day, Mr. White showed up at an Eastwood Dr. residence off Woodlawn Rd. and told Ms. Courson, 26, that he held up Raceway for $120. Police later learned that he telephoned her about 4:30 that morning and invited her to go along with him when he committed the robbery. Sheriffs chief investigator Chuck Brannan said a surveillance camera picked up the image of the robber that morning at 6:18 and he was wearing a black mask. He was armed with a pistol believed to be the pellet gun found in his pickup by arresting deputies. The female clerk was unhurt, and quoted the bandit as saying, Im sorry I have to do this, but I have a sick baby. Late Tuesday, police say the suspect does not have a criminal record showing on the computer network, but has a record of pawning property. They are also not aware of a sick baby. Ms. Courson told police she met Mr. White on November 13 near her residence on Ponsell Rd. south of Glen, and they met several others at the Eastwood Dr. address of her boyfriend Michael Johnson and spent the evening there. The next time she heard from him was the phone call early the next morning. She told him she wanted no part of the holdup, and she called police dispatch that afternoon when Mr. White left after telling her he intended to rob another store. After the arrest, the suspect said he was heading to Walgreens on South 6th in Macclenny. Brandon WhiteA north county woman charged with manslaughter in the 2007 drug overdose death of her daughter-in-law has served nearly all of the one-year sentence she received November 8 after entering a no contest plea in circuit court. Sheila Bijeaux, 52, when she was arrested last December, has been in county jail ever since and will remain there less than one month before beginning a two-year probation. She also pleaded to giving Methadone to victim Amanda Marie Bijeaux, then 29, the night of September 24, 2007 in an autopsy determined as the cause of death drug intoxication. The accused initially told police her daughter took the drug accidentally, and that she was accustomed to taking Xanax. The case lay dormant until October of last year when sheriffs investigator Steve Harvey interviewed Mrs. Bijeauxs son in prison. He was married to the victim and said he believed his mother planned to kill his wife by switching the drugs before she went to sleep that night at their residence on Frank Combs Circle. In another sentencing, a codefendant charged with a series of vehicle burglaries in an east Macclenny neighborhood will serve three years in prison. Andrew Cardenas, 20, of Macclenny will be on probation two years following release and was credited 181 days for time he has been in county jail.

My father was a Navy veteran who throughout his life was in volved in music. He always urged me to do more with my voice and I promised him before he died last April that I would. This unique musical salute to military veterans seemed the perfect way to begin to act on that promise. Taking the plunge back into community theater after an ab sence of two decades was a little intimidating. The music part was a breeze, but I havent done any acting in so long, I wasnt sure I still knew how. The last time I hit the theater stage I played a young Hollywood ingenue conniving to undermine the performance of a more famous and experienced actress. Skip 20 years forward and Im playing the part of a mother whose soldier son is sent home temporarily from Afghanistan to recover from an injury. Both parts required a real shift in mental gears since I have no experience with either situation. But, thats why its called acting. What didnt involve any act ing was the very real emotion the entire cast experienced night af ter night as we performed in the presence of so many genuine he ros. What a special privilege to entertain these folks, from a 90-year-old Pearl Harbor survi vor to young men currently serv ing in Afghanistan and Iraq. Id like to give a special salute to the members of Baker County High Schools JROTC who at tended each performance and performed their precision drill demonstration during intermis sion. Their presence on stage was most impressive. They are a spe cial group of young people and Im very proud of each of them. It is also my great privilege to report in a different section of The Press this week on the Vet erans Day programs put on by some of our local schools. I wish everyone could have been present to witness the unique musical pledge of alle giance performed by the stu dents at Macclenny Elemen tary. I wont forget that, ever, or the photo I shot of student Khai Chrome handing a small Ameri Fiser. From time to time Ive come across amazing stories involving I had the most wonderful ex perience this past weekend. Normally I dont write about our drama pro ductions after they are over, but what we had happen this weekend was just so special. This past weekend we presented A Star-Spangled Sa lute our Veterans Day show. About a year ago, Bobby Hart, a Lt. Colonel in the Army Reserve, suggested that we do a show for Veterans Day and we decided to take him up on it. I was excited by the prospect of the wide variety of music I was going to be able to use. We decid ed on music from World War II until today. We based the first act on an Armed Forces Radios Service broadcast in 1942, a Frank Sinatra USO show in Korea, a radio show from Vietnam and a scene at Thanksgiving, 2011. We were anxious to per form it. There was a great turnout on opening night, and the show went as ex pected. We got a good response to the first act and the second. But it was at the end of the show that something very unique took place for actors and audience alike. We sang Tie a Yellow Ribbon the theme song for the Gulf War of the early 90s. At the end of the song, my wife Kelley Norman stepped up and invited all the veterans in the audience to step forward to the stage. The first night we had 22 come forward. Kelley had them intro duce themselves and tell the au dience their branch of service and when they served. But before we could even do that, the audience rose to its feet and gave these vet erans a standing ovation. It was at that point that it all became very emotional for all of us. The veterans choked up as they told of their service. The audience wiped tears from their eyes. Some openly cried. As the last veteran handed off the microphone, Sarah Davis sang God Bless the USA and we began a slide show of local veter ans, some of whom were stand ing in front of us. As we sang the chorus, the actors came off stage and joined in with the veterans as the audience sang along. It caught us all by surprise. My dozen actors and actresses were having trouble singing the song because they were sharing so much emotion with the veter ans and the audience. Very few people were dry-eyed by the end. The veterans lingered near the front after it was over and many hugged one another, though they were very different in age and most did not know one another. The phrase brothers in arms came to mind. It was an amazing moment; what I like to call lightning in a bottle, something that you never expect to get back again. Except it did. Every night. In rehearsals, one of the actors asked, What if no one comes down front? I replied that we just sing, but that they would come. They did. Each night the vet erans, some in full uniform, shared with the audience and the audience honored them. On Saturday night, a survi vor of the Pearl Harbor attack, 92-year-old Hoyle Shields, was in the audience. I was having breakfast when they attacked, he told the audi ence. We were given a Spring field rifle and a handful of cartridges to shoot at the planes. As Sarah Davis sang, ... and Id gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today, the audience rose en masse and joined hands to sing. Its a good thing that I didnt have to say anything at that point, because I wouldnt have been able to utter a word. After the show was over, the veterans gathered around Shields and many had their pho tos taken with him. Our intention for doing the show was to entertain and give back. Hopefully we did entertain. But one thing became abso lutely certain to us as actors and performers. The veterans who came down front gave us much more than we ever gave them. It was a special moment for all of us. It was a chance to say thank you. Last week we got an ear full about vari ous Christmas decorating traditions. This week we turn our attention to the feasts that families are no doubt planning for the Thanksgiving holiday. We asked our Face book faithful the morning of November 14, What is your favorite Thanksgiving dinner food? Heres what they had to say ...Laura Wright Cline: Ham, ham ham! Kimberly Crews Atwood: I would have to say the pies pumpkin, pecan, sweet potato! Robert Thompson: Turkey, dressing, potatoes, gravy, cranberries, rolls, corn, pies. Sorry, cant list just one. Donna Hare Ruis: Dressing :) Brad Waltman: Squash Casserole. Jennifer Fraser Sapp: My moms homemade dress ing that was passed down from her grandmother! Katrina Woodard Collins: All of it! Jessica Lauren Hudnall: My mamas home made macaroni and cheese! Kenny Lawrence: I like it all. DeeDee Hauge: Pumkin pie with lots and lots of cool whip! Tammy Crawford McFarland: Home made dressing and mac and cheese! Jeanne Marie Todd: Turkey and dressing, of course! Jess Davenport: Moms homemade apple stuff ing! Lynne Bolen: Tie between stung and pump kin pie ... I make both from scratch.And with the states proposed changes in scoring on the always controversial FCAT, we asked our Facebook fans November 15 for their input on the bar being raised for younger students and lowered for high schoolers.Alyssa Nicole Fernandez: Well, I agree with lowering the standards for FCAT a bit, but I wonder if that would make students not try as hard? Hmm. Jess Davenport: I dont agree with lowering it at all. I graduated from BCHS in 2008 and walked with students who read at what was probably a 4th grade level, and their spelling wasnt much better either. Students are learning that if theyre stubborn and stop try ing as a whole, they will eventually lower the standards and skip through. They need to be held to a higher stan dard and not a high for Baker County standard. Robert Thompson: Why would they want to lower standards? Its like theyre saying the kids are too stupid to achieve the standard so lets dumb it down some. Oh well, the world will always need McDonalds employees.Join The Press at Facebook.com.

Dear Editor:I am not originally from Baker County so I had to ask someone ted with dog cages, CB antennas and coolers. He called them Bubba Rigs. Since there are so many of them roaming the roads of Bak er County, I propose a friendly Bubba Rig competition to coin cide with the annual Christmas Parade. Shortly before the event, Bubba Rig owners could con verge at a location selected by pa rade organizers. The trucks could be then judged in the following catego ries: driver (male or female). best Christmas costume (male or female). gest CB antenna. exhaust. Bubba Rig dog. The 10 winners would then participate in the parade, fol lowed by all competitors. This should add at least 15 minutes to the parade based on an estimate of 50 competitors. A modest prize could be awarded to the 10 winners, like a can of dog food and a box of dog bones. Id like to see it added to the Christmas festivities.L.J. Frederick Macclenny rfn tbffveterans throughout this coun try. I once read an account of one of these people in Readers Di gest which to this day astounds me. A Vietnam veteran who lost his eyes and both legs to a land mine was at home one day when he heard a woman screaming at the house next door. He rolled his wheelchair out to the back yard fence and be gan calling out, trying to get a re sponse. None came and the screaming continued. His military training, long dormant, kicked in and he went into combat mode. Using his arms, this blind and crippled vet pulled his legless body up, maneuvered him self over the top of the fence and dropped to ground below. Then he dragged himself in the direc tion of the screaming woman who he found clutching the mo tionless body of her small child in the swimming pool. He sent the woman inside to call 911 and began performing CPR on the child. Emergency rescue personnel arrived and later stated the child would never have survived without the vets intervention. Once a soldier, always a sol dier. God bless America. God bless our veterans.

Secondly, they said, they would want assurances that the city would be part of any decision-making process to consider future assessment increases. But even more troubling to city ity. Currently, the only special assessment under consideration is for emergency medical services and City Attorney Frank Maloney said that, in his opinion, such a fee would not be legal. He read portions of court cases, including a unanimous ruling in 2002 by the Florida Supreme Court, which he said held special assessments for rescue services to be illegal because the fees are supposed to benefit properties only. Such services benefit people, not property, Mr. Maloney said, adding that a district court of appeal case in 2003 in Marion County arrived at the same conclusion and that the top attorney for the Florida Association of Counties has also expressed doubts about the proposed fees legality. I would not want to defend such a special assessment, he He said the Florida Supreme Court has upheld the validity of tection and solid waste disposal, both of which the county has in place today, and for law enforceare considering for another special assessment down the road. The issue of special assessments, which function erty owners, arose a few months ago when county commissioners were bateventually planned to pulled $2.2 million from emergency reserves to plug a gap in the 2011-12 shortage. Mayor Gary Dopson said he understands the financial dilemma the county faces and knows it must the future without having to continually draw down the reserves. But thats the countys problem, he said. cit somehow. But not at our expense, said Mayor Dopson. spread disparities in property tax bills throughout the county, which allows some owners to pay much less than others with similar properties. argue, would be the same for all property owners regardless of property value, and many people who currently pay no property taxes due to property value exemptions available for homesteaded properties, would be subject to the assessment fees. Thats the aspect of the countys proposal that city officials favored, saying the cost of government services should be spread across a broader spectrum of property owners. But putting the legal issues aside, they still had far too many unanswered for them to move forward with the county on the issue. tions I need answered, Mayor Dopson said. I dont want to add to what were already paycit. At one point during the meeting, the mayor asked if anyone in the audience was in favor of special assessments. Of about a dozen spectators, no one responded But several spoke in opposition to any increases in taxes or fees. I am adamantly opposed to the special assessment period! said Jack Baker, a Macclenny resident and business owner. There is no end to this recession. This economy is terrible. Mr. Baker owns several rental properties not eligible for homestead exemptions. While residential property owners may receive up to a $50,000 exemption on the value of their properties, Mr. Baker said, business owners get no break. Several other residents expressed similar sentiments, including Don Gaines, who said he owns property in the city and in the county. Were already having a hard time surviving out here, he said. We cant afford this kind of stuff. After about an hour and a half of discussion, which became repetitious, commissioners voted in favor of a motion by Mr. Rhoden to take no action unless further advised by the city attorney.Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Michael P. Pitt, son of Cynthia L. Pitt of Macclenny, and fellow crew members aboard USS Samuel B. Roberts recently completed the final portion of an anti-piracy exercise in the Somali Basin region. Pitt is a 1999 graduate of Baker County High Schoo and joined the Navy in August 1999. Phil RhodenThe special assessments are with a single-family residence or business within the countys jurisdiction, save those owned by the government or churches. Because Ms. Bryan resides on her property, shes eligible for a $25,000 homestead exemption and an additional $50,000 exemption for low-income seniors, she said. She purchased the property for $6500 in 1990 after her husband died, property records show. Ms. Bryan said shes called 9-1-1 only once since moving in. When asked if she thinks shes getting a free ride, Ms. Bryan said, I dont think so. County commissioners have talked about exempting elderly, disabled and low-income homeowners from proposed special assessments, but no specifics have been released regarding the amount of the assessment or who would be exempt. The plan has another hurdle to clear, too the Macclenny City Commission [see related article in this edition]. Discussions on the potential EMS assessment stalled after the city commissions attorney, Frank Maloney, advised the board that special assessments for EMS run afoul of previous court rulings. Still, the county commissions chairman Michael Crews is not giving up. He said the county has reAttorney General Pam Bondi on Mr. Maloneys contention that because EMS benefits people, not property, the special assessment is illegal. The existing special assessments are levied in addition to ad valorem property taxes that factors. The tax rates set by the county and other taxing authorities are applied to the value of a particular property as calculated by Property Appraiser Tim Sweats ever value exemptions the property is assigned. There are up to $50,000 in value exemptions available for homesteaded properties. The ed from taxation and another $25,000 is exempted from the value above $50,000. A homesteaded property with a taxable value of $100,000, for instance, would be taxed at $50,000, while one with a value of $50,000 would be taxed at $25,000. There is also a $50,000 value exemption for low-income seniors and others exemptions for the disabled, widows and other circumstances.How many arent paying county taxes?Nearly 10 percent of properties county-wide dont produce county property taxes because they have taxable values of zero, and about 5 percent of all parcels with buildings have no taxable value and no county tax burden, according to estimates from Mr. Mr. Sweat cautions, however, that within those 597 properties with buildings and no taxable value there is property owned by the government or religious organizations exempt from taxation. There are 59 churches listed in the phone book and property records indicate there are 168 parcels owned by the state, county, City of Macclenny, school district, hospital authority or Town of Glen St. Mary. Some in the latter group could be vacant, but most have structures. That leaves an estimated 370 properties with buildings under non-religious, non-government ownership and no taxable value. Yet, despite paying no county property taxes, the residents who occupy these properties have just as much access to EMS or law enforcement as everyone else. Records from the countys EMS department show that of 13 randomly chosen privatelyowned residential properties from the 597 parcels with buildings and no taxable, EMS has responded to seven, and one on Lewis Covin Road in southeast Macclenny seven times. The late Linda Sovers 1-acre parcel with a 1981 mobile home in northeast Macclenny is in probate and also carries no taxable value. Her son, 31-year-old Michael Sover, has lived there for 22 years. Mr. Sover said theyve called for EMS in the past, but not a lot, and that he wouldnt mind paying an annual EMS assessment in addition to those for solFaye McCollum, 68, is another homeowner whose property has no taxable value. She lives south of Macclenny in a conventional, single-family home built in 1959. Ms. McCollum said shes in the last two years due to pulmonary disease, but shes not supportive of the proposed EMS assessment. Of course I dont want to pay anymore, she said. Rex Holloways 33-acre tract on Miltondale Road is exempt from county taxes due to his disability from military service. Regardless, the 73-year-old Vietnam veteran and retired Army colonel said he would support a fee-based approach for public services. Im in favor of everybody paying something for services, he said. It doesnt seem fair to make some people pay for services that everybody uses. What Id like to see is whoever uses a service to pay, but I know thats not always possible.Few options lay aheadThe current property tax system greatly reduces the taxable value of all homesteads, even if its not all the way down to zero. County board chairman Crews said estimates from the property appraiser showed 46 percent of county taxpayers pay less than $500 in county taxes. Revenue from more broadly levied special assessments, he argues, could countys been facing in recent years. The county anticipates using some $2.2 million from reserves to make up the short fall department alone was $440,921 last year. Mr. Crews said he proposed a sweeping plan during budget workshops last summer to cut county spending across the board. The plan included department consolidations, layoffs and furloughs, but failed to gain the approval of fellow commissioners. That ship has sailed, said Mr. Crews, adding that special assessments are one of the few The most recent proposal for an EMS assessment was coupled with a pledge to reduce the countys property tax rate enough to offset the fee, Mr. Crews was That way, he reasoned, those with the highest property values, now paying their fair share, wouldnt see a substantial increase overall, while those with the lowest property values, paying no county taxes under the current system, would start contributing. County property taxes are levied county-wide while the assessvices only apply to areas outside Macclenny city limits. The city, which levies municipal property taxes within its jurisdiction, has partments. But without the city commissions agreement on the proposed EMS assessment, Mr. Crews said he would not support it because, under the proposal, property owners in the city may see a reduction in their overall tax bills while those outside the city may not. He said that if the Attorney Generals opinion favors the proposed EMS assessment, he intends to seek the city commissions cooperation once again. Should the opinion be unfavorable or city commissioners remain opposed to assessments, he said the county isnt left with many options. We can always let the county go broke, Mr. Crews said, or we can start cutting services. From page 1 From page 1r ffn

Deputy Earl Lord said he recognized Leslie Perryman, 29, as the person caught on a surveillance video entering an employee room at the store about 12:30 pm and taking wallets belonging to Amber Goldsmith and Syretha Taylor, both of Macclenny. The following day, a clerk at the Exxon Store on South 6th on the other side of Interstate 10 reported that a white female used Ms. Goldsmiths credit card to purchase $148 in merchandise. She signed the name Brenda Love to the credit ticket and was accompanied by a white male. Police were expecting a surveillance video of that transaction. In other thefts, two males are believed responsible for stealing boots, shoes and costume jewelry from the mens dressing room at the Baker High auditorium. The rooms are used by the drama department, whose sponsor Bob Gerard, told Deputy Matt Yarborough he confronted the suspects in the area early the afternoon of November 8. The pair said they were working on the building air conditioning system, and police later learned from the contractor that only one worker was assigned to the project that day. day at the Citgo station at Interstate 10 and US 90 west of Sanderson turned up stolen from Jacksonville on November 6. Deputy Rodney Driggers said a store employee flagged him the next day when he became suspicious because the vehicle was unlocked.JOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe owner of a highly-visible residential property on US 90 in downtown Glen St. Mary was given a 10-day grace period on the property up to code or face ally max out at $1850. Carolyn Wiggins was cited by the Town of Glen St. Mary in September for debris under and around a carport and overgrown grass around the 55-year-old home. She was given until November 13 to correct the violations before an $85 administrative fee is assessed and a hearing set before the Code Enforcement Board. Glens code enforcement ofthat code violations have been ongoing at the property for the last two years, though some progress was made on the carport area before the CEB meeting the evening of November 15. Ive had several complaints about the smell and the looks of the property, Ms. Loadholtz told the seven-member CEB. Weve been working with her, but its still [in violation] ... Under the carport theres a big difference, but around the carport is still overgrown. The CEB handles code violation cases for Glen. She said she smelled a urine odor, likely from cats, from the US 90 sidewalk where she took additional photos of the home on the day of the CEB meeting. the property in violation. The vote to wait 10 days before present for the hearing, passed 6-1 with board member David Theus dissenting. After the grace day until the property comes into compliance, for up to 180 days, will be assessed. Ms. Wiggins was also charged an $85 administrative fee, which offsets the towns costs to investigate and process code enforcement cases. In other cases heard by the CEB that evening, two property owners one found in violation of mobile home skirting rules and another in violation of zoning regulations, were given one month and six months, respectively, to come into compliance. Jessie Johnson and his wife Lisa appeared before the board regarding the lack of skirting on a mobile home at 4299 Southwood Rd. in the southeastern countys Black Bottom area. The property was cited for the violation in September after a routine inspection in July revealed the violation. A mandatory inspection is part of the countys permitting process for mobile homes. The countys code enforceofficial Bob Hathcox said neither a mailed notice of violation nor a hand-delivered notice were received by the property owners, Mr. Johnson and his mother Alice Crawford, so notices were posted at the property and courthouse. Mr. Johnson told board members hes been unemployed for about 10 months, but has found temporary work to get the approximately $330 needed to install the skirting. violation, CEB members unanimously approved member Waldo Brocks motion to allow Mr. Johnson 30 days to come into $50 plus $10 per day until the property is in compliance, for up to 180 days.

ursday, November 17, 2011 T B C P Page 7Its a stretch to call it a crimeridden part of town, but police officers are finding themselves more often in recent months called to Macclenny Park between 8th St. and West Boulevard north of US 90 in the north city. A week ago, a Maxville man was arrested there in possession of crack cocaine, drug paraphernalia and residue. He was in the company of a Macclenny woman described as unresponsive and high on drugs. Police also found a pistol in the rear seat of his vehicle. In the past two years, Macclenny Park has been the scene of several muggings involving younger persons, arrests for drug possession, disorderly intoxication and vagrancy (sleeping in the rest rooms). They have occurred during both daylight and night hours. In the recent case, Bradley Griffis, 20, of Maxville was arrested on multiple charges just after noon on November 8 after police responded to a disturbance call on the parks west side bordering 8th St. Deputy Chris Walker said Jennifer Brooks, 29, was seated in Mr. Griffis 2005 Chevrolet passed out and with purple coloring about her face and lips. She was taken to Fraser Hospital for treatment and observation after an apparent drug overdose. The deputy got permission to search the car and found a plastic baggie with needles and a spoon with what appeared to be pill residue. On the suspect he found the cocaine, $485 in cash, two cell phones, steel wool, an ATM card and two checkbooks belonging to someone else and the handgun. He was booked for felony drug possession, carrying a concealed weapon and display of a weapon while committing a felony. A witness told police that Mr. Griffis earlier attempted to sell him the Ruger pistol. The next day, Deputy Johnny Hodges filed criminal complaints for disorderly conduct against two 16-year-old BCHS students who went to Macclenny Park to fight. They had been suspended the previous day for a verbal confrontation on campus and agreed to meet at the park to settle matters. Sheriff Joey Dobson said this week he will seek a meeting with Macclenny officials about setting a dusk to dawn curfew at the park aimed at cutting back illegal activity. Some people are certainly using it for the wrong reasons, he noted. We consistently are having to stay over in that area, especially at night when people really arent supposed to be there. He acknowledged that deputies are often called during daylight hours, as in the above mentioned instances, but if a curfew is enacted they would have cause to clear people out at night. Theres been drug use, transients sleeping and the like. Its going to get worse. Most of these people were dealing with are adults, not just kids, he said. Macclenny opened up a several block area for the park, ballfields and a fitness trail in phases during the past decade. The section where most of the illegal activity takes place is on the north portion where shelters and the duck pond are located. The city also maintains Heritage Park on Lowder south of US 90, but it is little used except for special events and enclosed in a perimeter fence. The park is locked at night and during some daylight hours. A warrant for felony domestic battery will be sought for Danny Mathis, 33, of Macclenny charging him with an attack on his estranged girlfriend at his residence on Bob Kirkland Rd. the morning of November 12. Jennifer Burnsed, 30, was interviewed by police at her Ohio St. address in Macclenny following the incident. She told Deputy Matt Yarborough she went to Mr. Mathis residence about 1 am at his request, and shortly after she arrived he became enraged, knocking her down and striking her head against the floor. He then allegedly choked her when she attempted to leave and began again striking her about the head, refusing to allow her out of the residence until he left about 10 am. Deputy Yarborough said Ms. Burnsed, who said she had been in a three-year relationship with the accused until February of this year, bore signs of the attacks about her head and neck. The deputy later telephoned Mr. Mathis, who said he was out of town working and would turn himself in at county jail early this week. He will be charged with battery by strangulation, domestic battery, false imprisonment and criminal mischief for destroying Ms. Burnseds cell phone. In a second case, a criminal complaint was filed November 13 against another former boyfriend for two counts of aggravated assault. Brandon Coffin, 22, of Macclenny allegedly threatened exgirlfriend Dawn Browning 18, and David Harvey, 21, with a kitchen knife at an address on John Allen Lane southeast of Taylor. Ms. Browning told Deputy Robert Aberly the accused came to her residence to bring her an application for unemployment benefits and an argument ensued. The suspect left when confronted by a neighbor who heard commotion inside the residence. Deputy Aberly filed the complaint after failing to make contact with Mr. Coffin at his Blair St. address in Macclenny.

PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTONCar re chars engine at Food LionWhen the Chevrolet Impala (above) driven by Leo Je erson arrived in the Food Lion parking lot on South 6th Street about 4:45 pm on November 7, he noticed smoke coming from the vehicle. He said it wasnt until he stepped out and walked away, however, that he saw ames emanating from underneath the car. Mr. Je erson immediately dialed 9-1-1 on his cell phone. Macclenny re ghters from Station 1 in downtown Macclenny arrived about ve minutes later and extinguished the re. Mr. Je erson said he was coming from Robbies Car & Truck, which had sealed a blown gasket in the engine. The Chevrolet is owned by Annetta More of Macclenny, who said at the scene it was insured. One of the responding re ghters, Chris Bonds, said the gasket sealant was not likely the cause of the re because it isnt ammable after it cures.Police arrested a St. George, GA man the evening of November 8 for felony possession of prescription medication after his vehicle was stopped following a disturbance at Murphy Oil on South 5th St. in Macclenny. Deputy Daniel Nichols said Frederick Yokum, 36, was driving a 1996 Honda away from the scene when stopped at South Boulevard and 6th St. The officer learned via a computer check that the drivers license had been suspended in Florida as an habitual offender. He also learned that Mr. Yokum was wanted on a warrant for obtaining a Georgia license while his Florida one was under suspension. During a search of the vehicle, police found six pills in a cigarette pack for which Mr. Yokum did not have a prescription. He was also ticketed for having an open container of alcohol in the vehicle and an expired license tag. The earlier disturbance also involved Tammy Moreno, 24, of the same St. George address. She was stopped in a second vehicle but not arrested. In other drug-related arrests, Jacely Morris, 26, of Fort White, FL was jailed for felony possession of pills after they were found in her purse during a routine search the morning of November 8. Sheriffs investigator Tracie Benton said she stopped a vehicle driven by Ms. Morris on CR 125 south of Glen St. Mary because she knew the woman to be the boyfriend of Justin Sands, wanted by police. Ms. Morris gave officers permission to search the vehicle because items belonging to Mr. Sands were inside. She was also charged with misdemeanor possession of a small amount of marijuana. was named in a complaint for misdemeanor possession after a marijuana cigarette and small baggie of the drug were found in his vehicle the evening of November 12. Deputy Scotty Rhoden stopped him about 10 oclock in a 1997 Nissan near Estates and SR 121 south for failure to maintain a single lane. arrested Grant Hembree, 25, of Macclenny at the same location the evening of November 12 for driving on a license with four suspensions. The officer said he pulled over the 1998 Hyundai because of an inoperable headlight. rf fn tbff rfPolice have surveillance photos but little else to go on to identify a white male who stole four GPS systems from the Macclenny Walmart the afternoon of November 8. Store security observed the man retrieve clothing items and the electronic devices from the inventory shortly after 6 oclock, then wheel his cart to the front of the store where he took two of the units into the mens room before leaving the store. He returned several minutes later and removed the remaining two from the cart and again entered the rest room before exiting. A security worker attempting to catch him saw the suspect enter a beige SUV that headed south on SR 228. The license number he gave to Deputy Daniel Nichols was assigned to a Jacksonville woman and a different-styled vehicle. The GPS units were valued at $600. Another white male dashed out of the S&S convenience store on South 6th in Macclenny about 1:30 am on November 13 after snatching two 18-packs of beer. A store clerk told Deputy Jacob Satterwhite the suspect drove off south toward the interstate in a silver pickup truck. A passenger in a vehicle involved in a disturbance in west Macclenny the evening of November 12 turned up wanted in Bradford County for grand theft. Jennifer Brooks, 29, of Macclenny was in a 1993 Ford van stopped by Deputy Jacob Satterwhite just after 10 pm at the Exxon station on US 90 west at Lowder. The driver, Sheila Griffis, 47, of Macclenny was charged with disturbing the peace and resisting arrest without violence. Deputy Satterwhite said Ms. Griffis became angry and belligerent while he was questioning Ms. Brooks and refused to calm herself. She also resisted being handcuffed. In other warrant-related arrests, Adam Swisher, 26, of Jacksonville turned himself in at county jail on November 18, charged with possession of a controlled drug. Tarrance Riley, 33, of Macclenny was already at county jail when served with a Duval County warrant for failure to appear in court on a suspended license charge. Bradley Gri s

ursday, November 17, 2011 T B C P Page 13 JOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comBaker Countys very own bogeyman better known as the Taylor Wild Man has emerged from the shadows and found an Internet connection. You know you were my worst nightmare growing up, commented Pauline Faye Gibbs on the Taylor Wild Mans Facebook page. Now you dont seem so scary. Happy Halloween Taylor Wild Man. To get better acquainted with the once illusive terror thats plagued local childrens imaginations for generations, The Press contacted the Taylor Wild Man via social media to request an interview. The interview and his posts to Facebook and Twitter show him to be a straight-talkin hunter and lover of the great outdoors, and a fan of the Florida Gators. He appears to have a crush on Miranda Lambert as well. The following are excerpts from the interview. The full interview will be available at www. bakercountypress.com later this week. Taylor Wild Man: I just got a message on the Facebook from a young lady that said yall might want to interview me. I reckon that sounds like a good idea. I dont really know what yall want to know about me, but if you wanna send me some questions I can try to answer them the best I can. Yall could try to come out time when someone sees me I wasnt looking to hold a meet and greet. I pretty much keep to myself for obvious reasons. Joel Addington: Excellent. should I address you? Taylor? Mr. Wild Man? TWM: You can call me the Wild Man an I guess. JA: OK, Wild Man, how long have you been part of the Twitter-verse and what prompted you to join? TWM: I decided to get on Twitter and Facebook basically because thats what everybody does now. I also thought it would be cool to connect with the younger folks. Ive been around quite a long time, but I have kind of become irrelevant. Theres a whole new generation of people that dont know nothing about the Wild Man. Baker is also getting a lot of newcomers like the ones moving in from Jacksonville and all. Baker is a place that has a wealth of history and Im a part of it. I thought it was real funny when the skunk ape or whatever it was got sighted a few years back. Some people said they saw it, some people didnt believe it at all and some folks said it was me. I also reckon that seeing how Im a public figure and all, I should have my voice and thoughts heard because I been here longer than almost anyone. JA: Ive only been here for a few years but Ive heard whispers here and there about the Taylor Wild Man. When I first heard your name, I thought you were akin to Bigfoot. Ive since been schooled that youre more the hermetic-type, living off the land and so forth. So, Wild Man, exactly how old are you? Where did you come from? And what can you tell me about youre day-to-day lifestyle? TWM: Many of the claims about what I am and aint have been greatly exaggerated. Im not 10 feet tall and I dont have antlers. Now I might have stolen a chicken or two in my day. A mans gotta eat. I also hunt for deer, wild hogs, gator and rabbit. Ill even eat a little squirrel from time to time. shine and muscadine wine. I aint a drunk but I like a drink or two every now and again. Thats pretty much the long and short of it. I aint sure how old I am but I been out here for years. I reckon Im in my 60s. I get my exercise hunting and what not so I stay in pretty good shape. I been out in the woods since I was a youngin. I used to live with my grandma when I was a kid but when she died I didnt want to go live with nobody else so I ran out to the woods and I been here ever since. I dont even know her name. I just know she was me grandma. And I know they call me the Taylor Wild Man but thats jut because thats where people have seen me. But I dont stay in Taylor all the time. I go up into the Okefenokee from time to time. Theres a lot of room to roam around here. A lot of land that aint got no houses and people. Land that aint been developed. True swamp wilderness. I hope it stays just like this forever. Im glad the state and country protects this land. Thats important because so much of our woods and swamps is getting taken away. I heard a song called Lochloosa that was wrote and sung by some boy from around here, JJ Grey. You listen to that song and you got to agree with what its about. Our land is getting stolen by developers and such. Its a crime if you ask me. JA: Lochloosa is a great tune, a must listen for anyone who treasures the real Florida what mingos and Mickey Mouse. So it sounds like youre somewhat of a conservationist. Do you feel any kinship to the critters with which you share a habitat, save the ones that end up your dinner, and/or the wilderness? And if so, what should the outside world do to help protect them? TWM: Yeah, I think that we as people have a responsibility to take care of the environment around us. We are just guests here and I feel to some extent we arent grateful for what weve been given. As far as the animals and such, I know that God put them here for us to eat. However, God also gave us the intelligence and the resources to manage what hes provided for us. Killing a deer for me aint about hanging something on a wall somewhere. Its pretty spiritual. Im taking life to provide for my own. Its not a sport, you know. But sport hunting is important too, when its done like it should be. We do gotta kill animals because if we dont nothing will. Deer aint got no more predators. We killed all the panthers and we killed all the wolves and coyotes, etc. And that aint just a Florida thing, thats an America thing. So basically what Im saying is that I think its pretty un-Godly and un-American not to respect the nature around you and throw trash and beer cans wherever and leave furniture on the side of the road and what not. It aint right to kill or catch more than you can keep and that kind of stuff really makes me angry. JA: Getting back to youre lifestyle. Where do you sleep? Under a tent? In a tree? On the ground? TWM: Mostly on the ground. I found an old canvas tent that I sleep in when the weather gets me some sort of shelter. When your dogs are barking for no reason early in the morning, that might be me slipping out of your barn or shed. JA: What do you do when youre not hunting, fishing or bathing in the St. Marys River? TWM: Besides scaring people and killing goats? Ha, ha. No, I just do my thing. That pretty much sums it up. I think a lot. I read the newspaper. If you didnt get your Sunday paper one week, it might have been because of me. I like to hear music when I get a chance to and here lately getting pretty old now and Ive seen a lot so I like to write about what I see in the paper. Computers are crazy but theyre a sign of the times. Heck, even I got one. Whats the world coming to? JA: Have you ever been in love? TWM : Not until here recently.

ursday, November 17, 2011 T B C P Page 15The Lady Wildcat basketball team will be kicking off hoops action this week and Coach Aaron Summers has been working hard during the off-season to build his teams strength and stamina and get them ready to play. Summers is in his second year and hopes to build on last seasons 6-17 record. He sees a lot of improvement in this years edition of Lady Wildcat basketball program, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. Summers still has a relatively young team although he is very enthusiastic about its prospects. We have one more year of experience behind us, said Summers. I do as a coach and they do as a team and it has made a lot of difference. Summers had a strong summer league that saw the Wildcats beat Paxon and Forrest, two of their district rivals. He thinks Bishop Kenny will be his main challenge this season and points to the Wildcats road test with Kenny on December 6 as a measuring stick of the teams progress. Overall, the biggest strides have been defensively for the young Wildcats. We probably spent 75 percent of practice on defense, the coach said. They honed their defensive press and ball skills. He praised the strength and consistency of Stephanie Collett, Jocelyn Brown, Rondeshia Clayton and Sharonda Braziel. Offensively, Summers has been very pleased with the addition of Marnae Gaskins to the team. The sophomore has transferred from Columbia High and provides the coach with a small, fast guard coming off the bench, what Summers calls a thrasher. Chelsey Ruise is the teams top scorer from last season. She has improved her three point shooting and particularly he full speed layups in the off-season. Ruise is an all around athlete who was recently selected to a state volleyball All-Star team. Coach Summers described Shanice Paige as a phenomenal number 2 guard with a pure outside shot. She handles the ball well and can see the open pass. Shes very smart with the ball, he said. Tianna Raysor and Caitlyn Smith are hard working, dependable and versatile players on the court. Niesha Givens has strength and quickness and is fast to the ball. Summers hopes that the offseason work will pay off, particularly in the fourth quarter, where the Wildcats struggled. Several games were lost just from running out of steam in the late going. The ladies open the season at home on November 16 at 6 pm versus district foe Paxon. 3 BR, 1 BA brick home for rent in Sanderson on 1 acre of land, carport, service pets only. $800/month, deposit required.

Commercial FR Mobile HomesThe BCHS Wildcats wrapped up the football season with an impressive 41-24 win over traditional rivals the Bradford County Tornadoes. Heres a look at how their opponents did on the final weekend of the regular season. tigious private schools squared off as Bolles whipped Episcopal 41-27. Bolles rushed for 300 yards and Luke Del Rio threw for over 300 before a hard hit from the Bulldogs sent him to the hospital. Fans clashed with Coach Corky Rogers and players with each other in an ugly scene at the end of the game. Sandon Mims threw for three touchdowns as the Yellow Jackets stopped Palatka 24-6. Panther quarterback DAubrie Smith was sacked six times by a swarming St. Augustine defense. Jon Wolford to Ahmad Fulwood broke open a very close game and gave Bishop Kenny a 21-10 win over West Nassau. The Warriors kept it close throughout until Wolford found his favorite target with two minutes to go. wins Kevin James gave the playoff bound Indians a 40-34 win over Terry Parker. Jordan Mullis threw for 127 yards. Kory Williams had 134 yards rushing and three touchdowns to lead the Broncos to a 36-35 upset over the Clay County Blue Devils in Green Cove Springs. The Broncos had a 90-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown to key the victory. win over Orange Park thanks to the strong arm of OShay Carter, who threw for close to 200 yards as the Conquerors stopped the Raiders 28-14. I shake my head in anguish at the whole sordid Penn State story. As big a fan as I have always been of the Lions and Joe Paterno, whatever the program suffers pales in comparison to what the eight young victims of Coach Jerry Sanduskys abuse have suffered. over the hapless Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, but didnt look stellar doing it. The team once again relied on the prowess of running back Maurice Jones-Drew as the passing game looked anemic. Jones-Drew had 114 yards rushing as he bulled his way through the Colts, a team he loves to run against. He had originally thought the Colts might be the team to draft him out of UCLA, and takes it out on them every chance he gets. He has over 1,000 yards rushing in his career against the Colts. Other than MJD there was little else to be pleased about on either side of the ball. That is, unless you are a fan of the kicking game. There were 12 total punts in Sundays game in Indianapolis. It amazes me how the loss of one key player Peyton Manning can turn a perennial playoff team into a team with an 0-10 record and the worst offense in the NFL. It goes to show you how important the quarterback spot can be. Broncos on Sunday. That puts his record at 3-1 and ties the Broncos for second place in the division. Youd think that would silence his critiques. Nope. They are as loud as ever. Last week, he was voted the NFLs Most Overrated Player, supposedly by NFL players, though I cant imagine that ballot going around the locker rooms. Boomer Esiason keeps blasting him, as does Dan Marino. He answers by winning. The Broncos have sort of accepted that he is a special player who may not have all the skill sets of Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. Theyve installed a college option-style offense that relies on the run and allows Tebow to make run/pass decisions. In this weeks win over the Kansas City Chiefs he threw the ball just twice, though one of them was for a 56-yard touchdown. He ran for another. Tebows probably content to keep winning, no matter how ugly it is. Come to think of it, most Bronco fans probably feel the same way.F LROBERT GERARD rf Advertising Deadline Monday at 5:00 pm NO EXCEPTIONS! www.bakercountypress.com

They were a handful of points away from being the district champions, posting a perfect record and looking to the post season. Instead, after the 20-14 loss to Bishop Kenny November 4, they were about to play their last game of the 2011 season. So the Cats, and particularly the seniors, were treating the game against Bradford as their playoff game. It definitely showed in their play, as they rolled over Bradford County 4124 in Starke. I was a little bit worried Monday and Tuesday about how wed respond to the loss, said head coach Ryan Sulkowski. But I told them that time heals all wounds and by Friday we had stopped feeling sorry for ourselves and were ready to play. Bradford came into the game having lost six in a row to the Wildcats and with a playoff date against the Raines Vikings this Friday. Over the past two games, Bradford looked like an offensive juggernaut. They shutout their previous two opponents and outscored them 89-0. They won a playoff berth by defeating Mt. Dora 7-0 in a three-way tiebreaker the Monday before they faced the Wildcats. It was clear from the early going that Bradford was caught back on their heels. As the game progressed, the Wildcat defense began to impose their will on the Tornado offensive line. Kendrick Singleton, who had perhaps the best game of his career with 14 catches for 201 yards and 4 touchdowns, opened the scoring with a 91 yard touchdown jaunt on a short pass from Thomas Sirk on the third snap of the game. The Tornados top player, quarterback Austin Chipoletti, played well, and responded to the first Wildcat score with one of his own. But Coach Derek Chipolettis son was harassed by the Elijah Lee and CeCe Jefferson as the game progressed. BCHS took the lead at the end of the first period on a 36 yard Jeremy Wannamaker field goal. From that point on, the game belonged to the Wildcats. Chipoletti was still able to move the ball, but the Tornado defense were unable to stop the Cats, and Sirk in particular, who threw for over 400 yards in the game. In the second period Sirk tossed the ball all over the field and connected with Singleton for a 16 yard score and Malone PHOTOS BY JUD JOHNSONPictured clockwise from top left: No. 2 Jeremy Wannamaker on the carry, No. 18 Kendrick Singleton jumps for a touchdown reception, No. 4 Roland Gaskins attempts to elude Bradfords No. 3 and a pair of Bradford defenders tackle Wannamaker.
