COVERING BAKER COUNTY SIN CE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings MIKE ANDERSON PRESS ST AFF The Baker County Commission agreed to spend money that wasnt budgeted for recreational improvements after publicly acknowledging that some of the old bleachers at the Knabb Sports north Macclenny had deteriorated to the point of be ing dangerous. Commissioners approved County Manager C.J. Thompsons recommendation to spend $18,194 to repair or re place most of the wooden bleachers after expressing concerns for Commissioner James Croft, who was elected in November, cast the only dissenting vote, had heard of any safety issues with the bleachers. He said the time to discuss expenditures for repairs was before the 2012-13 budget went into effect on October 1. I doubt very seriously that those bleachers got that way since October 1, Mr. Croft said, adding that mid-year is not the time to increase expenditures balanced last year after an infusion of about $1.6 million in reserve funds. Im not anti-Little League and not anti-safety, and Im not anti-youth, he said. But this board has got to face reality. We are on a downhill pull. Officials estimate the countys reserve fund is down to about $3 million, far less than it once was a few years ago before the fund became a regular source of dollars to shore up sagging revenues. Other commissioners disagreed with Mr. Crofts assessment, including Gordon Crews who said now when theyre most critically in need just before the spring baseball season begins, instead of budget time in six months. Besides, Mr. Crews said, Litabout the condition of bleachers in the past, as well as other needs they said needed to be addressed. In fact, he said they were screaming about it last year. Maybe, but not when the budget was being prepared, Mr. Croft replied. Jerry Carter, president of the Baker County Little League Association, listened to the de bate for several minutes before he walked to the podium and urged the board to do something to help improve the ball bakercountypress.comVisit our website and vote each week in our online poll.

Marshall Mann, 48, was acquitted in a jury trial last October of felony sexual battery and lewd acts on another young victim. The state attorneys office last month downgraded the sole remaining pending count against him to battery, and transferred the case to county court. County Judge Joey Williams refused a defense request to withhold adjudication of guilt during last weeks hearing, ignoring Mr. Manns denial that he touched the victim in a sexual manner. The judge termed the defendants actions intentional and sinister. Youre in a pickle, asserted the judge. Youve told the court and community Im not denying what Im accused of. Thats a big thing. What youre accused of is a heinous misdemeanor. He placed Mr. Mann on a years probation with a condition he avoid contact with the victim and her family. The state alleged the defendant, then 39 years old, fondled the breast of a 13-year-old girl. During the judges pointed comments that lasted several minutes prior to sentencing, he told Mr. Mann, who has retained his $50,000 a year job at city hall since his arrest in March, 2010, that the plea was sufficient for jail time. Assistant State Attorney Ralph Yazdiya, the prosecutor in the October trial, sought adjudication of guilt and did not press for incarceration.

It doesnt even pass the sewer sludge smell test. The past few weeks weve been treated to the spectacle of the City of Macclenny suing one of the larg est real estate companies in the world. Why? Because Rayonier balked at selling the city 114 acres north of the city limits for a sludge field. Thats where sewer plant waste is deposited and worked into the soil. Now were looking at the prospect of throwing taxpayer funds down a rat hole seeing the lawsuit through, or alternatively, throwing taxpayer money down a rat hole pursuing an eminent domain condemnation of the property so it can be used as a sludge field. Some choice. So, why is Rayonier bent on defending itself? The company believes it was deceived (horn swoggled if you will) by a gobetween real estate guy named Lewyn Boyette into a buy-sell agreement it never would have entered into had it known what the real plan was. Did I mention the fact that Mr. Boyette was going to pur chase the land for $399,000, yet the city was prepared to pay him a total of $479,000 for his trouble. Thats a nice payday of about $80,000 for being a front man, or as Rayonier might put it, being the man in front of the man behind the curtain. And the citys defense so far is that neither Mr. Boyette nor city officials ever lied about what the intended use of the tract was supposed to be. They just didnt disclose it. We used to do that a lot when we were adolescents. We never actually lied when our parents believed we were one place, and we were actually somewhere else doing things we werent supposed to do. They never asked afterward, and we never told them. See? No lies. Rayonier insists Mr. Boyette indicated he intended to use the land for recreation and family. He now denies that. The city is also standing be hind a logic that goes something like this: its Rayoniers fault for not asking, or neglecting to place a restriction on future land use for things like, oh, stinky sludge fields. Theres probably a reason that Rayonier didnt. Im just guessing, but it might have been because they trusted that Mr. Boyette was up front when he discussed the potential un solicited purchase of 114 acres off Steel Bridge Rd. That is, if he said what they say he said. See where this is going? Many of us would feel a lot better if the City of Macclenny had launched an open and above board land search for its sludge field. Sure, anyone living in proximity to a site is going to oppose it. Its reasonable to assume, though, that with the thousands of acres of remote tim ber property in Baker County, a suitable site is available. City Manager Gerald Dop son was quoted last week saying a sludge field is still an agriculture use, so Mr. Boyettes representation isnt that far off. Really? Then why wasnt he, and the city, up front about it? And how about this? Who made the decision to in effect hire Mr. Boyette as the front man? Were other real estate people operating in the county considered or notified? And who decided that $80,000 was a fair price for locating and se curing the property? Macclenny in its pleading argues the buy-sell pact is ironclad because there are no restrictions on future use of the land. Perhaps a judge will agree, but a decision in the citys favor wont blow away the stench that surrounds the citys behavior up to this point. Why am I awful at Valentines Day? I wish I could explain to you why I am so horrible at doing something special for my wife on Valentines Day or in fact, any major holiday. Its not that I dont care. I care a lot. But I some how cant manage to pull off anything special. My son Spencer is celebrating Valentines Day with a wonderful meal for his girlfriend Myrrhanda. Spencer is cooking a nice meal. He decorated the patio of his apartment with white lights so that it looks like an Italian bistro. After dinner they are going to make Valentines Day heartshaped sugar cookies. As I write this, I can already hear the heartfelt Awwws escaping from all my female readers. Its great. Its personal. Its not over the top. What have I got? Zip. Nada. Nothin. I should have written this column last week. Then, all of my clever readers could have sent me suggestions about fabulous Valentines Day gifts and romantic do-dads to impress my wife. Instead, Ill concoct another in my long line of loser holiday gifts. I am awful as a present buyer, the Charlie Brown of present buying. I always manage to pick the wrong gift. If youve been reading this column for a while (I have been writing it since the mid-1980s) youll remember that I once bought my wife a fabulously romantic gift. At least I thought it was a great gift. From the look on her face as she opened it, however, I saw how wrong I was. I was baffled. How can you go wrong with a food processer? That food processer is still in its original packaging, shoved somewhere back in a cabinet in the kitchen. Kelley refuses to use it and brings it up on occasion when the need arises and she has to point out to me things never to buy her. So guys, a word of warning practical gifts like food processers, air dehumidifiers, Snuggies, vacuum cleaners are all great gifts just not on Valentines Day. Other things Ive learned the hard way not to purchase include most items of clothing. Though my wife is constantly buying me articles of clothing and I wear them, I almost never buy her clothes. Why? I have no taste. Thats not exactly true. Its just bad taste. So I will invariable purchase things in colors I love like pur ple or green, and that she hates. Or I will buy something I think is in an intriguing, cutting edge style and she thinks looks like the kitchen curtains. Buying clothing is a very delicate line in the sand you have to cross when purchasing for a woman. If you dont buy exactly the right size, you are in big trouble. No matter what the woman looks like, if you buy the item too small it will make her depressed. If you buy it too big it will make her mad because you thought she was bigger than she actually was. Steer clear. I once thought that lingerie would be a good gift for a major holiday. So I bought my wife a skimpy little item only to find that we had mixed up the presents and it got thrown in with the ones going down the street to be opened at my in-laws. Surprise! Jewelry is usually good, but once again, I have bad taste. Im not a very good cook, so thats out. My wife says flowers are a waste of time. Besides, if I buy her flowers she usually looks at me like Ive done something wrong and Im apologizing for it. And shes usually right. I guess Ill just buy her a nice card and tell her how much I love her and how awful my life would be without her. You cant go wrong with that. I hope. spicable thing; this cannot be allowed to go unaccounted for, declared Judge Williams. You say it didnt happen, but youre going to be responsible as a matter of public record. Its one of those things that leaves a permanent stain on a persons character, and leaves permanent damage on the victims, conclud ed Judge Williams. He gave Mr. Mann credit for 35 days in jail, and he is also liable for court costs. Also submitted by defense counsel Gonzalo Andux of Jacksonville were 14 letters written by the defendants parents, friends and co-workers at the city, many portraying him as a church-going Christian of high character. A letter by his boss, City Manager Gerald Dopson, spoke glowingly of Mr. Manns job performance over the years and steered clear of areas outside of employment. The citys fire chief Buddy Dugger wrote that Mr. Mann has strong religious beliefs and is a man of good character. Mr. Duggers assistant chief Scott Crews echoed similar sentiments with the exact wording. Acquaintance Georganna Griffith of Sanderson praised Mr. Manns good Christian be liefs and morals and declared that he has raised his children in a good, loving Christian home. Judge Williams acknowledged the letters, calling them flatter ing and glowing, but cautioned, We can make mistakes that can wash all that away. The six-member circuit court jury in October took mere minutes before declaring Mr. Mann not guilty of the felonies that could have sent him to prison for the rest of his life. He never took the stand and his defense attorneys argued that the case was tainted by an exwife motivated by revenge. The jury discounted state witnesses, including the victim and her mother, two marriage coun selors and sheriffs investigators recounting incriminating statements made by the defendant during therapy sessions and just prior to his arrest.

The City of Macclenny recently began rolling out (no pun intended) its new gar bage collection service with Advanced Disposal. We asked our Facebook peeps for their thoughts on the new service and heres what they had to say: Jerry Jeremiah Daniel: Like the new can!!! Zach Yelko: Like it! Its dierent being once a week though. Garrath Phelps: Never got a can! BJ Smith: I would still like to see the 2 day a week pick up. Robert Phillips: We pay the same but only 1 time a week pick up. The price should be cut in half. Angela Suppa Callahan: I do like the garbage can (cant believe I just said that!). But the one time a week thing will take some getting used to. Ours is full and we still have to wait until Thursday. It would make me a whole lot happier if they included curb side recycling! What would it take to get that started here? Nicholas Delgross: What do we do with our old cans? Rick Colbert: Full price, half the service! Gina Daly Tanner: Once is never enough for anything! Robert Phillips: If your trash falls on the ground it wont get picked up. Carol Anderson: Wish they had recycling. Stacy Mills: There is recycling on Hartline Drive next to the health de partment. Jamie Lambert: I agree with Angela, if they cut our pu times in half, I would like to see recycling. Otherwise, where does the savings come in, or were those some really expen sive trash cans? Lol Jerome Reimer Sr.: I see no prob lem with the once a week pick up. The big cans are neater instead of plastic bags and mangled cans scat tered all around. Mary Livingston Fraser: Our new dumpster behind our store is smaller and overowing. There are 15 stores with one dumpster. And there is a lot of people that dump there house hold garbage there to! Keith Overstreet: Gosh, is Macclenny just now dropping twice a week pick up? Ive never been any where else that did twice a week pickup. My dad always expected me to take the garbage cans to the street for Monday and Thursday pickup. That was a lifetime ago. Marilyn Penrod: Paint your old garbage cans and make a rain barrel out of them. Recycle, recycle, recycle. Bobbie Dyal: I dont care for once a week at all ... I have way to much trash to get rid of. It really is an inconvenience. Caleb Bedell: It sucks, bring back the local boys! Eric Miller: Good luck getting them to pick them up on time Eric Miller: People lost their jobs and the new ones cant get it right. F rom page 1 yearly. We dont run down here every year asking for money, Mr. Carter said, adding that the bleachers have to be replaced one way or another. Its a safety issue. My concern is the safety of those Mr. Thompson told the board that Road Department Director Robert Fletcher gave him a $4,600 check from the sale of scrap metal and suggested the funds go towards bleacher improvements. Chairman Mark Hartley, cur rent chairman of the New River Solid Waste Association, also noted that the county received $300,000 as its share of revenue from the regional landfill last week. I would like to use some of good shape, Mr. Hartley said. Again, Mr. Croft objected. He said the $300,000 could put a That just means were $1.3 million, Mr. Croft said. sioners agreed on was to match a $750 contribution from the Little League Association to fund a $1,500 long-range plan for the ball park complex. Mr. Croft said such a plan is needed to get away from the piecemeal approach to improvements that have been the policy in the past. My goal is to one day turn it over to the Little League and get the county out of the ball park business, Mr. Croft said. Who organization that runs it? Commissioner Jimmy An derson said he agreed with Mr. Croft about the need for a longrange plan, but took exception to his continued refusal to vote for bleacher upgrades. I dont agree that you just dont do anything when you know without a doubt that there are tons of safety problems over there, Mr. Anderson said. I am surprised that we have not had a feel responsible if someone got hurt because I knew it was like that and I turned my head. At one point, the county manager told commissioners the decision was up to them. out, Mr. Thompson said, adding that two bleachers were in such bad shape theyre beyond repair and need to be replaced. The vote to spend the $18,194 to get the work started came after County Attorney Terry Brown said the county could be liable if knowingly unsafe bleachers are not repaired or replaced. I have not seen the bleachers but if they are in fact unsafe, as some of you have represented, then if you decide not to replace those bleachers my recommendation would be to pull them out. That is where you are in terms of the liability perspective. Mr. Anderson said six bleachers need to be replaced, but the others can be repaired. He agreed with the county attorney that if need to take them out. Commissioner Adam Giddens said he supported the long-range plan and the immediate need to repair or replace the worst bleachers, possibly with aluminum instead of wood. Existing stands are unsafe and an embarrassment, he said. I think this is something we need to spend money on, Mr. Giddens said. Sharon Padgett, a Macclenny resident seated in the front row facing commissioners, said she had sat through budget workcountys reserve money dwinagreed with Mr. Crofts asser tion that funds should not be approved for things that were not discussed during budget negotiations last year. If it is a necessity it should be planned, she said. I was hoping we could come to a compromise that maybe the Little League could raise a third of the funds and the county a small part and then go to the businesses in the county for a third. We have to work together. In other business commission ers: Dolans request to spend $41,580 in federal Title 3 funds to buy a new trailer and equipment to expand the countys Firewise Program, aimed at protecting propIts been very successful up in Taylor, Chief Dolan told the board. Thats why we decided to go countywide. In addition to a trailer, the appropriation includes nearly $32,000 for a new brush chipper, chain saws, protective gear, hand tools and power tools. Mr. Thompson said the countys Title 3 fund balance was about $350,000. accepting a 2003 Ford ambulance donated to the county by Century Ambulance. David Richardson, the countys rescue operations chief, said the vehicle would make a good addition to our service, noting that one of the countys primary vehicles is currently out of service and awaiting replacement of a blown engine. The donated ambulance, he said, is really in good shape and would make a reliable backup unit. He said its been well maintained and has 130,000 miles on a new engine installed in 2006. All we would need to do is the graphics and stock the unit (with rescue gear and medical sup plies), Mr. Richardson said.

The truck has some 400,000 miles on it, but the engine was replaced in 2006. Century CEO John C. Glover said the company, which boasts the largest volume of non-911 calls in the region, donates old equipment to area governments and nonprot organizations. The county typically has three primary ambulance units and two backup units, which are used for special events or when a primary unit is out for repairs. EMS director David Richardson (left) said one of the primary units blew its engine last December and he began contacting private and public ambulance services to inquire about the availability backup units that could be loaned to Baker County in an emergency. Century, he said, oered to do even better by donating one of its old units. It gives us a better safety net more than anything, he said of the newly-acquired vehicle. At right is company representative Keith Lowstetter.The Baker County Code Enforcement Board gave the Clay County owner of a nearly demolished mobile home a month to remove it or face daily fines of $10. Owner Robert Griffis, who lives in Fleming Island, appeared before the board at its February meeting on Monday evening and said hed likely have the remnants of the trailer cleared by this weekend. He said the trailer on South Prong Cemetery Rd. south of Sanderson had once been owned by an occupant who leased the property from him, he had contracted earlier to remove it. Mr. Griffis told the board he was unaware it was still there until two weeks ago. In other cases, Building Of ficial Robert Hathcox said he allowed another month for removal of another dilapidated trailer from the property of Iona Fish off CR 122 near Taylor. The owner obtained a demolition permit on January 11 and requested the additional time. Mr. Hathcox reported refuse and abandoned vehicles had been removed from the property of Tommy Smith on Gilford Davis Rd. west of Glen St. Mary as of February 11, negating the need for the board to hear the case. An appreciation plaque was presented to ex-member David Theus, who served on the volunteer board from October 7 to July 2012. Mr. Theus resigned before moving to Fleming Island. County deputies made a trio of arrests for disorderly intoxication in the Macclenny area during a three-day period early last week, including a woman who had to be restrained when she attempted to kick out the rear window of a patrol car. Deputy Jeremiah Johnson said he answered a disturbance call at the address of Linda Culvyhouse on Rhoden Dr. the evening of February 4 and confronted Linette Barron, 39, who was visibly intoxicated and said she had nowhere else to go. She refused to calm herself and was cursing loudly at the property owner while she resisted officers attempts to place her in handcuffs. They also had to secure her legs with irons when she began to kick at the window. Ms. Barron was cleared at Fraser Hospital because of her level of intoxication and jailed on the disorderly charge and resisting police. officers arrested Benny McMurrian, 30, of Twin Lakes, MN outside the Travelodge motel on South 6th early on February 7. The suspect and a female companion created a disturbance at the Exxon Store across the street about 2 am shortly after leaving the Country Club Lounge, and the store clerk said he damaged a towel dispenser before heading toward the motel. There, officers found Mr. McMurrian shirtless and throwing trash cans in the parking lot. He was also charged with criminal mischief. clenny was arrested the afternoon of February 4 for creating a disturbance on Tom Wilkerson Rd. and making threats to family members and a girlfriend before they left the area. Deputy Michael Clark said Mr. Strickland refused to calm himself and had been walking up and down the road attempting to goad others into fighting. was aware that Dennie Fields, 52, of Sanderson did not have a drivers license when he spotted him driving on Odis Yarbrough Rd. about noon of February 6. Mr. Fields license expired in 1989. Nicholas Hopman, 31, at a residence on Wildcat Alley in Glen St. Mary the evening of February 6 on a New Jersey warrant for failure to appear in court on a probation violation. He went to the address to check on the well being of Mellissa Diomedes at the request of a caller, who was aware that Mr. Hopman was there and also knew of the warrant. clenny was already in county jail on February 7 when authorities learned he was wanted in Clay County for failure to keep a court date. An east Macclenny man was arrested the evening of February 1 and charged with slashing another man across the chest with a knife during a fight over liquor. Deputy Jeremiah Johnson said he added a felony count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon against Virgil Loonsfoot, 42, after taking statements from victim Jack Jarvis, 48, also of Macclenny and other witnesses at Deerwood Circle where the altercation took place around 5 pm. Initially Mr. Loonsfoot, who was described as intoxicated, told the deputy he was fighting with live-in girlfriend Lora Addison, who later insisted Mr. Jarvis was cut while he and her boyfriend were playing with their knives. The deputy said he had taken Mr. Loonsfoot to county jail for disorderly intoxication when he learned the victim had gone to the residence of Kenneth Barron Sr., 52, who lives in the same neighborhood. While Mr. Jarvis initially told the officer he was injured falling down stairs, Deputy Johnson affirmed the wound appeared to have come from a knife. Mr. Jarvis was treated at Fraser Hospital. In other incidents, a criminal complaint for domestic battery was filed against Maurice Givens, 37, for allegedly attacking his estranged live-in girlfriend Pamela Jefferson, 31, at their residence on Gaskins Circle the evening of February 10. Ms. Jefferson told Deputy Robert Simpkins the accused burst into her bedroom about 10 pm angry because she danced with another man. She denied it and Mr. Givens then straddled her and struck her in the upper torso and head. The couple have three children together, including a 14-year-old son who intervened before his father fled on foot. Ms. Jefferson said her assailant was under the influence of alcohol. Country Club Lounge on South 6th in Macclenny just after midnight on February 9 told the investigating deputy they did not want to pursue criminal charges. Two white males allegedly attacked Brandon Lowery, 25, of Baldwin and Ryan Leonard, 26, of Glen St. Mary as they left the bar that morning. Deputy Johnny Hodges said Mr. Lowery was taken to Fraser Hospital with a broken leg and abdominal bruising from when he and Mr. Leonard were knocked to the ground, struck and kicked. Mr. Leonard had a facial laceration and Ashley Huckeby, 24, of Sanderson, one of two females waiting outside for the victims, said she was pushed. Both Mr. Leonard and Mr. Lowery, questioned later, said they couldnt remember much about the attack because of their level of intoxication. Ms. Huckeby likewise said she was willing to let the incident go. The assailants were both described as stocky and wearing baseball hats, T-shirts and jeans. They drove off with a third male in an extended cab ma roon Chevrolet truck. One of them was tentatively identified. early on February 3 with possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. Deputy Hardin quoted witnesses Jason Shaw, 39, and James Vickers, 33, both of the same College St. address in Macclenny, as saying Mr. Whitfield came from behind his residence on South 4th St. carrying a .20 gauge shotgun. It was later found on a sofa on a rear porch. The two witnesses were involved in a disturbance with Nicole Shaw, 33, about 4 am after they went to the residence to pick up Mr. Vickers girlfriend. Sheriffs investigators stopped a vehicle on South 6th in Macclenny the afternoon of February 7 because the driver was wanted on a warrant, and ended up arresting a passenger as well when it was learned he was wanted on multiple warrants in Georgia. Investigator Matt Yarborough said Salina King, 36, of Macclenny was at the wheel of a 1990 Isuzu when he stopped it about 3 pm in a store parking lot. Ms. King was wanted on two Baker County warrants for drug trafficking. She was also charged with possession of Oxycodone and Hydrocodone pills without a prescription. They were in a pill bottle lying atop a purse. Deputies then arrested passenger Robert Starrett, 38, of Glen St. Mary on Georgia warrants for four counts of credit card fraud and a single count of theft by deception. In a second felony arrest, a Macclenny man involved in a bar fight the evening of February 2 was arrested on a Georgia warrant for failure to appear in court and possession of both cocaine and marijuana with intent to sell. Deputy Jeremiah Johnson re sponded to Macs Liquors on US 90 in Macclenny about 9 pm and questioned Deron Palmer, 42, who had been involved in a fracas with another man. The officer then learned via a routine check of the warrant from Tift County, GA. He found a magnetic key holder on Mr. Palmer during a security search, and it contained eight small baggies of powder and crack cocaine. He also faces local charges of felony possession with intent to sell. clenny was charged with felony possession of marijuana with intent to sell after Deputy Trey McCullough found several small baggies on him during a security search the afternoon of February 4. The officer and Deputy Robert Simpkins went to a residence on Quail Lane in the south city armed with a warrant for Dor rian Surrency, who fled through a rear door after being warned by Mr. Ruise, who was also charged with obstructing justice. The charge against Mr. Ruise was upgraded because of the proximity to a nearby church and Keller Intermediate School. clenny was arrested for possession of various items of drug paraphernalia found in his 1995 Chevrolet after he was stopped the evening of February 9 in a parking lot off South 6th St. for not wearing a seat belt. Deputies Simpkins and McCullough said passenger Kayla Blackburn, 24, of Sanderson stuffed a bag under her seat that had two spoons with scorch marks and white residue. She said Mr. Rhoden asked her to conceal it. Other items inventoried from the vehicle included alcohol pads, a needle bag, plastic tube and rubber strap. Mr. Rhoden also had several containers of pills prescribed to him. clenny was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana after a small amount was found inside her residence on Big Blvd. the morning of February 9. Several deputies went there on a well-being check after a third party noticed her front door open. Two people were arrested for shoplifting the past week, and a criminal complaint was filed against a third suspect whose image was caught on a surveillance camera. Store security watched as Scott Schneidermesser, 43, of Port St. Lucie walked around Walmart in the late morning of February 10 placing merchandise in a shopping bag. He then went to the toy department where he unpackaged merchandise and again placed it in the bag. Deputy Michael Clark said he and several other officers waited at the request of a store security worker near the garden center exit, and when Mr. Schneidermesser caught sight of the deputies he set the shopping bag down on the floor. The value of the stolen merchandise inside the bag, which the suspect admitted he brought into the store, was $383. the previous afternoon at Walmart after she was observed by security taking makeup and jewelry items from the inventory and placing them in her purse. She then left via the north entrance and was de tained until Cpl. Tony Norman arrived. Value of the stolen items was $78. ing Andrea Mann, 41, of Macclenny as the person caught on surveillance tape stealing a pair of childrens shoes from the My Beauty store on South 6th St. Deputy Jeremiah Johnson said he recognized Ms. Mann when he viewed the tape. She and several other females were inside the store about 2 pm that day. The shoes were valued at $10. A clerk at the S&S Store on South 6th called police late on February 5 when he realized he was bilked by a customer who presented eight rolls of dimes that turned out to be pennies. The clerk told Deputy Johnson a white male wearing a black beanie entered the store about 11 pm and represented the coins were worth $40. He purchased cigarettes and was given the difference in change. The coins were worth $3.85. Three thefts of wallets and contents from vehicles were re ported to the sheriffs department the past week, and in all cases bank cards were quickly used to make purchases and get cash at locations in Macclenny, Baldwin and Jacksonville. The first theft occurred overnight on February 5 when a 2010 Chevrolet belonging to Heather Gipson was entered while it was parked at her residence on Nutty Buddy Lane near Glen St. Mary. Deputy Johnny Hodges said three purchases in Macclenny and Baldwin were reflected on the victims bank account. Yarborough was stolen from her 2002 Honda parked on E. Michigan Ave. in Macclenny the evening of February 7. Her card was used for a $23 purchase at the Kangaroo store in Baldwin. Investigator Mike Hauge said a surveillance tape at the store caught the image of a male subject in a dark pickup with a silver tool box using the card about 1:30 am on February 8. Several store cards and a bank card belonging to the victim were found in a trash can next to the gas pump. GA reported a purse taken from her 2007 Chrysler sometime February 8 or 9.

Timothy P. Sweat, CFABaker County Property Appraiser32 N. 5th Street, Macclenny Our o ce is open Monday Friday 8:30 am 5 pm A Macclenny woman reported to police that her storage unit on Lowder St. was looted of an estimated $6200 in property between New Years Day and February 2. Amy Mills told Deputy Brandon Kiser her unit in the P&R storage complex was locked and there was no sign of forced entry. She noticed footprints on a couch and other property indicating someone had been there. The inventory of missing property ranged from furniture and home furnishings to jewelry, clothing and a wedding dress. In other recent thefts from commercial property, copper was stripped from a rooftop air conditioning unit at Baker Vision on South 6th St. in Macclenny overnight on February 6. It is the latest in a series of similar thefts that have occurred in the downtown area in recent weeks. stolen from a vacant residence on Shelly Lane south of Macclenny sometime in recent months. A neighbor called police on February 9 when he noticed open gates on the property that had been unoccupied for about a year. Deputy Tony Norman said an inspection revealed the $1200 unit was taken and only the cover remained. The home is under foreclosure. The sheriffs department re sponded to several instances of theft and vandalism at unoccupied residences the past week, including one where a neighbor identified two men who allegedly attempted to remove an electrical panel box. John Jacobs called police the afternoon of February 9 when he noticed the box at his property on Klein Rd. west of Glen St. Mary had been tampered with. Deputy Koty Crews said a witness saw Jimmy Lauramore Jr., 33, of Glen and Ira Thompson III, 39, of Macclenny on the property earlier that day and confronted them. They claimed to be examining the box to determine how it was assembled. The deputy named them in complaints for criminal mischief. In other reports: uty Chad Montean two hens valued at $250 and a $500 rooster were taken from her property on Minnie Lane in Glen on February 4 between 6-10 am. Also missing was a $100 carrying box. There is a suspect, and a relative said a white male came to her residence that morning seeking money for gasoline. were reported taken from the residence of Mannie Freeman on Freeman Rd. south of Sanderson the morning of February 6. A rear door was pried open, and Deputy Chris Walker indicated a relative named as a suspect denied involvement. February 7 that siding valued at $5000 was removed from a residence owned by her mother and vacant since last summer. The property is located on Gods Acre Ave. in the north county. on February 10 after learning a residence on Mulberry St. near Macclenny that she is vacating was vandalized sometime after February 2. A witness told Deputy Tony Norman two males were seen leaving the property the evening of February 3. mobile home he is refurbishing on Hazel Mae Rd. near Glen was ransacked and vandalized between February 5-10. Electrical wiring was removed from behind walls and 18 metal hurricane anchors were stolen. Vacant residences targeted by vandalsStorage unit thesPreviously it was bath salts; now its synthetic pot. Investigator Mike Hauge of the sheriffs department said area convenience stores were put on notice recently that synthetic pot packaged under harmless sounding brands like Mr. Nice Guy and Scooby Snax Potpourri is illegal. In December, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi tightened further the statewide ban that had been in effect for a year. Many retailers had been skirting the ban as new products using different ingredients appeared, so Ms. Bondi placed 22 specific substances on the list. Deputy Hauge warned the recently opened Smoker Friendly store on South 6th in Macclenny and others like Fastway Store on Woodlawn Rd. of the ban, and gave owners a one-time chance to turn over so-called cannabinoids for destruction or face prosecution. Just before Christmas (see related article) an undercover buyer purchased the fake pot from Smoker Friendly and last week the clerk was charged with dual felonies. Health experts say these substitutes for cocaine and marijuana are used primarily by young males seeking cheap highs, and they assume wrongly theres little danger attached to them because theyre commonly sold in convenience stores. As the public learned with the introduction of bath salts in area convenience stores in 2011, using them can be dangerous. Users were showing up in emergency rooms with symptoms ranging from racing heartbeats, violent paranoia, agitation and psychotic episodes. Though the figure is unofficial, at least nine people in Florida have died after using them. Investigator Hauge said this week a warrant is outstanding for Rubina Ali, 39, of Middleburg for allegedly selling $12 worth of cannabinoid to an undercover buyer at Fastway on December 19. Two days earlier, police seized a dozen packages from the store when they issued the warning. On February 5, Deputy Robert Simpkins arrested Alan Clark, 43, of Macclenny for possession of synthetic pot he claimed was purchased at a Jacksonville convenience store. The officer said Mr. Clark had a package of Scooby Snax stashed in the window visor of his vehicle parked behind the Quick N Handy store on North Lowder St. Possession of the substance is a felony. The sheriffs department last week rounded up 13 suspects and is looking for six more, all the result of undercover buys of various drugs dating back to October, 2012. The department made 14 such buys, nine of them in December and three involving the same suspect. Two of the cases were made against clerk Ghandi Ayoub, 37, at the Smokers Express store on South 6th in Macclenny on December 20 and 21 (see related article below). The report by Investigator Matt Yarborough, who along with Investigator Michael Hauge handle drug cases and arranged the controlled buys, states Mr. Ayoub sold Scooby Snax, a synthetic marijuana, to an individual working for the sheriffs department. Police said she paid $20 for the package that Mr. Ayoub, of Orange Park, requested she conceal under her clothing. Investigator Hauge three days before warned the store that selling the fake drug, known as canabinoids, is illegal. On December 21, a similar purchase took place and the informant noted the clerk produced the package from behind a counter. Mr. Ayoub was booked on twin counts of sale and possession of synthetic narcotics, second-degree felonies. Smokers Express opened several months ago just south of the CSX railroad downtown, and sells cigarettes at discount prices in a convenience store setting. Other arrests resulting from the covert buying and selling: amine and the alleged go-between were arrested on the basis of a set-up purchase at a residence on N. Hilliard in Glen St. Mary the morning of December 21. The buyer was directed to the address of Jennifer Raulerson, 39, and she in turn gave $100 to Wesley Lewis, 43, of Macclenny, who left the location after the transaction. Both are charged with sale and possession, as are: $40 worth of crack cocaine in Jonesville Park on December 5. erson for sale of $40 worth of crack on Rush Lane on December 12 and $100 worth of crack the previous day. When he was arrested on February 5, Mr. McKenzie had a small amount of marijuana and he faces an additional misdemeanor. Sanderson for sale of $40 worth of crack on December 6 on Five Churches Rd. When he was arrested on February 5, $733 on his person was confiscated. $60 worth of Oxymorphine on December 17 and $20 worth two days later at his South 7th St. apartment. for selling $40 worth of crack on October 16 at McIver and South 7th St. of $200 worth of Oxycodone at his Tammy Lane residence on December 14. When he was arrested on February 5, $309 on his person was seized. of pain medication from her home on Cedar Creek Dr. on December 17. Kevohntae Hadley, 20, of Macclenny for sale of $100 worth of marijuana in the parking lot of the Dollar General Store on South 6th on January 8. sale of $60 worth of crack on January 9 and 11 in parking lots off South 6th St. Newly opened store on South 6th sold synthetic marijuana to informant twice after warning.Covert drug purchase arrestsPhone scam is reported in area Beware of unsolicited telephone calls from people who pass themselves off as govern ment officials seeking to replace your Social Security cards. A north Macclenny woman reported that she and her husband received such calls earlier this week. A male caller with a foreign accent called them by name, and sought to verify their names, addresses and phone numbers, then sought information about their bank. The calls are a scam designed to trick people into giving out sensitive information over the phone that can be used for identity theft and to hack into bank accounts. The Social Security Administration has no such program for card replacement. Such calls often target older persons who may be less aware of telephone scamming and iden tity theft techniques, and more trusting if they are led to believe the call is coming from a government agency.www.bakercountypress.com ADVERTISING DEADLINE ISMonday at 5:00 pm Out of County SubscribersFed up with your copy of The Press arriving late, or not at all?

ursday, February 14, 2013 T B C P Page 9 Page8F E B RU A RY 14, 2013 JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comQianyu Huang, or Syliva as shes known to her host family, is a 17-year-old foreign exchange student from China living with a north Macclenny couple and their two poodles. Sylvia started attending Baker County High School shortly after arriving in the country last August. She enjoys her history, art, culinary and agriculture classes and takes calculus online at home because its not offered at BCHS. [School here] is different, Sylvia said during a recent in terview with The Press. I pick my schedule. In Chinese school, the schools pick the schedule for you. You have subjects you must learn, so its different. And the differences dont end there. Her native city Wenzhou in southern China is home to eight million people, big buildings, many streets and the hustle and bustle of commerce. NPR called it Chinas Capital of Capitalism and reported that Wenzhou manufactures 70 percent of the worlds cigarette lighters and 60 percent of its buttons. Our city is different from Macclenny because Macclenny is more like a countryside, said Sylvia, who was joined for the interview with her host parents, Sandi and Ryan Brannan. In my city we have tall buildings and a lot of people. She arrived in Jacksonville late in the evening following a layover in New York City. So the next morning, after the sun came out, she was enthralled by what she saw here trees everywhere, birds chirping and squirrels scur rying. Sylvia described Chinas environment in bleaker terms, saying the country is still developing and has a lot of pollution problems. I really like the environ ment here, she said. The biggest challenge for Sylvia has been adjusting her diet to the foods here. A self-described picky eater, Sylvia has been eating the same ham and lettuce sandwich for She loves spaghetti, brownies, tiramisu, pork chops, steak and chicken and dumplings. Shes not so wild about cheese, mayonnaise, fried food or American salad dressings. Otherwise Sylvia, the only daughter of a lawyer and school teacher, has settled in well here. Exchanging cultures communicate with other students at the high school. She couldnt understand what they were saying and they couldnt ignore her obvious accent. But overtime her English im proved and the outgoing teen made many friends at BCHS while learning about American culture and exposing other stu dents to Chinese culture. the table-setting competition at the county fair with hand-paintcenterpiece. Shes also experienced American Christmas and Thanksgiving traditions with the Brannans and her classmates. Sylvia is the couples third foreign exchange student since from Venezuela and Norway. With the other students we had, they were very similar to us, so there wasnt any drastic changes, said Mrs. Brannan, a But with [Sylvia] there were quite a few changes, she said. The food I didnt expect that to be so different and challenging Customs shes not used to hugging so that was something we gave her a heads up on; that we hug here and strangers will hug you and thats okay. Sylvias been attending church with the Brannans at The Glen Church and with friends at other local churches, including First Baptist in Glen. Comprehending Christianity, however, has not been easy for Sylvia, whose fam ily is Buddhist. Im not a Christian, she said. But I dont know if Im really a Buddhist or not ... I cant understand why Jesus, he needs to die for the people, because he himself is a God. Why cant God just change it or delay your sin? Thats something I cant understand. The houses of worship here stand in stark contrast to Buddhist temples in China. Theyve been eye-opening for her as well. They are quite serious, she said of the temples. You cant talk loud or play games or sports in the temple. But in church its different. The preacher is close to you. People here, they just want you to be a Christian. But the Buddhists, I dont think they want you to be a Buddhist. Sylvias daily routine involves school, homework and chores, but she tends to spend her free time at home on the Internet communicating with friends and She recently joined Facebook, which is blocked in China, but did so mostly because Mrs. Brannan was posting photos of her on the social media site. People see me and ask me, how was that hamburger? she said, laughing. Connecting students with U .S. families The Brannans recently be came area representatives for the International Student Exchange (ISE), which matches host families with students abroad. ISE operates with oversight from the State Department and performs annual background checks on host families, screens students based on the families preferences, makes home visits and check references. They partner with sister organizations in many other countries, who enlist students to study overseas. Host families are not paid, but are required to provide room and board for the student. Hosts may support, but its not mandatory. Sylvia said her family paid about 100,000 Chinese yuan, about $16,000, for her to participate in the program. The Brannans, who decided to seek an Asian student this time around, needed a student who spoke good English, a requirement to attend classes at the high school. Sylvia has been learning English since age 7, which is standard for Chinese school children. The Brannans learned from the youths profile that she shared Mrs. Brannans interests in photography and baking. She was also smiling in her photo, which most of the Asian students didnt do, said Mrs. Brannan. She wrote a very sweet let ter I thought, added Mr. Bran nan, who manages the teen court program here. The couple, mar ried 12 years, got to know Sylvia through e-mail and Skype be fore her arrival. Shell depart for home in June. It goes by fast, Mr. Brannan said. The goodbyes are rough. They are horrible actually, said his wife. The last time, she began crying two weeks before her Venezuelan student returned home. The couple has kept in touch with their previous two students and their families. The relationship you develop with these kids I feel like [Sylvia] is now apart of our family and she will be for the rest of our lives, said Mr. Brannan. For more information about hosting an exchange student, contact Mr. Brannan at (904) 424-5085 or brannanryan@yahoo.com.

Mr. Hall, a fifth grader at Keller Intermediate School whose mother works at the Or ange Park facility, was chosen for the honor because of his longtime dedication to the organization, said Linda Welzant, the humane societys executive director. The humane society operates a low-cost spay and neuter clinic, but does not shelter animals. It also offers education, wildlife rehabilitation and disaster response programs. Ms. Welzant estimated the youth spends about 15 hours a week at the shelter or assisting with humane society events. Ryan is a huge animal lov er, said the director. Hes donated his time since he was very young. The youth works at fundraisers and other events setting up and decorating, or manning in formation booths at the county fair, for example. He also fosters domestic animals and those in the wildlife rehab program, nursing small mammals and birds back to health after injuries. He continually helps out, she said. Kids have so much to do nowadays and he chooses to spend his time here helping the animals of Clay County. Mr. Hall, soon to be 11 years old, received his award at the humane societys volunteer appreciation dinner at the Magnolia Point Golf and Country Club on January 26. There was a time when he had little choice in being involved he had to because his parents were, said Mr. Halls mother, Claire Hall. However, he has had the op tion of opting out of the volunteer opportunities over the last three years, but has, instead, re mained eager to be involved and help wherever he is able, she said. He truly has a unique love for animals of all kinds and genuinely wants to help them however he can. Mr. Hall says his love of animals is probably inherited. My mom wont even kill a spider, she takes them outside! he said. Plus I know animals need help and cant really ask for it. Someone has to help them. They love us so much, I think its my job to pay them back for that. The family keeps one cat, Boo Kitty, and four dogs including a blind chihuahua named Goliath and a retired narcotics K-9 and labrador named Ferro. All are rescues. When asked about his favorite animal, Mr. Hall said he likes them all, but really likes deer. We cant play with them or anything but I like to watch them running and eating and stuff. Theyre fast and really, really neat to watch grow and learn to survive on their own, he said. Mr. Hall also enjoys hang ing out with his cousins, playing with his dogs and playing video games. One day he hopes to be come a video game developer or concept planner for a gaming company.

Page11F E B RU A RY 14, 2013 Page10F E B RU A RY 14, 2013 BOB GER ARD | SPORTS The Wildcat baseball team tuned up for the start of the regular season with a pair of pre-sea son wins this past week. The Cats defeated Bishop Snyder 16-5 on February 5 and Eagles View 3-1 on February 7 at their home field. Jacob Milton pitched three innings for the Cats with Jared Crews and Dylan Hall coming in relief. Ethan Wilkerson had a trio of hits and a pair of RBIs for the Cats. Hunter Bell had two hits and two RBIs and Jacob Milton added a pair of hits. Our defense was a little sloppy, as Snyder didnt have an earned run, said Coach Fred Matricardi. We made four errors and thats not us. Im sure nerves had something to do with it as we had four guys who have never started a varsity game before. Last Thursday the Cats beat Eagles View 3-1. Hunter Hanks threw four no-hit innings, striking out seven. Hanks also led the offense at the plate going 3-3 on the afternoon. Hunter Bell added an RBI single. We did a great job running the bases and be ing aggressive both games last week, said Matricardi. We pitched well, swung the bats okay, but need to clean up the defense. We take pride in defense, pitching, running and swinging the bats. We can be a complete team down the road if we contin ue to work hard. The Cats home opener is Fri day at 6 pm versus Ridgeview. BOB GER ARD | SPORTS The Lady Bobcat softball team got off to a positive start in its first game of the season, exploding offensively and handing Union County Middle School a 12-2 drubbing at the soggy BCMS softball field on February 7. The B-Cats then clinched a second win at Callahan on February 11. Coach Jon Mobley was encouraged by his teams effort, despite an early defensive lapse. We started a little slow and sluggish defensively in the first inning, but played much better after, Mobley said of the first win. That was as good a performance hitting as I have seen here. The B-Cats got strong efforts from Madison Kennedy, Macy Jackson, Hayleigh Mulkey, and Emma Gipson. The Bobcats travel to Hilliard on Thursday before returning home on February 19 to face Richardson Middle School of Lake City. Games start at 4 pm. The Bobcats got their second win on the road against Callahan Middle School on February 11. The B-Cats got off to a slow start but broke through in the third inning for a 6-2 result. Morgan Smith pitched well for BCMS. Sixth grader Allie Crummey came in to play first base for injured starter Hayleigh Mulkey and was solid. The entire defense deserves credit for the win, said Mobley. Once the bats woke up, we were able to get a lead and hold on for the win.BOB GER ARD | SPORTS Despite making an exciting 12-2 run at the start of the second half, the Wildcat basketball team lost 58-47 on February 9 to host Bishop Kenny in the finals of the district basketball tournament. The Wildcats travel to Nease February 14 in the first round of the playoffs as district runnersup. The Cats struggled offensively against a much taller Crusader squad. Center Brian Dawkins size advantage on the inside kept the Cats at bay in the early going. Leading scorer Charles Ruise Jr. was held to just 2 points in the first period as the Crusaders went on a 14-6 run. They continued to pile on the offense in the second period. Dawkins hit 9 points from the paint and guard Brennan Sullivan nailed a pair of three pointers to give Kenny a sizable 33-14 lead at the half. The Cats were not content giving the district crown to the Crusaders and went on a 12-2 run to open the third period. Dawkins was on the bench with some early fouls and BCHS picked up the pace. The momentum slowly shifted to the Wildcats and at one point midway through the period they narrowed the gap to 7 points. Kenny called a time out and reinstated Dawkins and the fickle momentum shifted back to Kenny. Ruise got red hot in the final period, scor ing 13 of his game-high 30 points in the final stanza. It was not enough, however, as the Crusaders shifted to a control game and slowed the pace to a standstill. The Wildcats moved up to the district final behind a 40-point effort from Ruise, who was unstoppable in the semi-finals when BCHS defeated nemesis Paxon 74-62. The Cats had split with Paxon in the regular season but Ruise was not to be denied. After the Eagles ran out to a quick 10-point lead, Ruise exploded for 20 of the Cats 24 second-period points to regain the lead and send BCHS into the intermission up 3124. They kept up the pace in the third period and Ruise, Johnny Lamb and Cameron Mack each hit 3-point shots. Paxon tried to come back in the final period but the Wildcats matched them basket for basket. Ruises 40 points was his highest of the season. Mack had 12 points, Lamb 8, and Brandon Lewis and CeCe Jefferson each had 6 points.

The girls couldnt manage much in the way of offense February 5 at First Coast, losing 2-0 to the Broncos. First Coast got a pair of runs in the third inning for the games only scoring. It was a frustrating game for BCHS. The girls out-hit the Broncos 8-5 but were unable to bring home the base runners. The Lady Cats left ten runners on base over the course of the game. Kylie Holton and Jennifer Hodges led BCHS in hitting, going 2-4. The Lady Cats bounced back on February 8 with an 8-0 win over Hilliard on the home field.

ursday, February 14, 2013 T B C P Page 13 Page 12 T B C P ursday, February 14, 2013 BOB GER ARD | SPORTS Baker County High School had eleven wrestlers qualify for regionals at The Bolles School on February 8 and 9, though for the first time in recent years no one qualified for state. It was a culmination of an intense week for Coach Adam Brunner, who was faced with entering the competition missing two of his qualifiers out with in juries while at the same time going against the best grapplers in the area. The Cats opened the first round with James Carter (182) and Lenny Carter (195) advancing by beating wrestlers from Mariana and Bozman high schools. BCHS was put on the back foot, however, when six of its entries lost in the first round, throwing them into the losers bracket. The Carters both lost in the second round, tossing all the BCHS wrestlers into the bottom half of the bracket. In the second round, BCHS came away with wins in the 106 pound weight class (Cody Miller), and 160 pound weight class (Sean Mulkey). Both won their rounds with pins. Miller continued to advance in the consolation round winning by pin, and Lenny Carter won by pin in his consolation match. With the other wrestlers losing, Miller and Carter were Baker Countys last hope for a state qualifier going into the second day of competition. Miller lost his first match of the day on a controversial call that had Brunner questioning the referee. With time running out in a match against Mariana, Miller was pinned with the clock showing no time left. The referee allowed the pin despite time having expired. Needless to say, I was furi ous with the call, said Brunner. They reviewed with the ref at the table, and Cody was defeated by pin in the first round. I hate to see the ref make a judgment call with insufficient evidence. Cody deserved to wrestle at state, but he will return next year with higher hopes and experience under his belt. Lenny Carter had a tough match with a wrestler from South Sumter and lost in a pin at the end of the second period. Brunner was pleased with his teams finish, despite not moving wrestlers on to the state tournament. Our team accomplished a lot this year, finishing with a 10-4 record, fifth place at districts, and 20th place at regionals. We are a young team and we will work hard this summer, and be ready to make moves in sending a few to state in 2014, the coach vowed. Skyline.
