He was covered by a large truck or heavy equipment tire. The victims bones were found among those of a cow car cass as well. Physical evidence from the scene, including a red hatchet and other items, were in the custody of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement last week. Dougherty, who is assigned to the case, will be reviewing weeks and months. Were just beginning to get started, said Lt. Dougherty. ducted by the late Archie Roberson, who originally investigated the murder, polygraph test results, the medical examiners autopsy report and other information. Lt. Dougherty said hes investigated other murder cases, including those of Aaron Fox and Melanie Jackson, who were handed 50-year and life sentences, respectively in re cent years; but never one as old as the Green case. The victims parents say they were given very little infor mation during the initial investigation and hope a second look by police and the public will turn up new leads. When I went to identify him a month or so later, the medical examiner determined he had multiple skull fractures from a pry bar. That was all we ever knew, said Ms. Wallace. They always said they were on the verge of an arrest but nothing ever happened. We thought it had to do with buying pot or something. He did smoke pot occasionally, but police said it had nothing to do with drugs, and I dont know why. Ms. Wallace speculated that her son may have been involved with people in the marijuana trade who were connected with authorities. Her ex-husband and the victims father, Art Green Sr., also believes local police could have been involved. said Mr. Green, referring to his quest in the years following the murder to obtain records related to the investigation. I dont think they wanted to solve it. that would solve the murder. Ms. Wallace hopes that enough time has passed since her sons death that someone with information about the case may come forward.JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.orgSheriff Joey Dobson recently reopened the nearly three-decades-old murder case of a young man bludgeoned to death and dumped in the woods south of Macclenny.

Mr. Green moved from his fathers home in Albany, GA to live with his sister, Donna Cooper Pullem, on West Ivey Street in Macclenny. He worked at a gas station at South 6th Street and US 90, known as the Direct Oil station.

Ouch! Actually, I have more than a toothache a whole face ache. My face is swollen from my neck to my eye. Not to the point that I look like a blowfish, but its enough to make me talk funny, look even fun nier than usual and be miser able. Supposedly, the dentist is going to try and work me in for a root canal on Friday. To give you an idea of how this feels, Im actually looking forward to a root canal. So, why am I telling you my troubles? Not because I like to gripe and complain though my wife claims I do, but be cause it brings me to this weeks column dental procedures I have known. That doesnt sound like much of a topic for a humor column, but I always manage to have unusual things happen in the dentist chair. Im not one with terrible dental anxiety. Ive been known to fall asleep in the chair while they work on my mouth. At one point, a dentist woke me up to see if I was okay. They thought Id passed out. My first dentist when I moved to Macclenny was Dick Johnson. He is a friend, but I recall a trip to the dentists office that Dick probably would rather forget. I had a particularly bad molar and Dick decided that the best bet was to yank it. Of course dentists like all true professionals dont use words like yank. He had to extract it. Thats what he thought. The truth was he had to yank it. Ordinarily pulling a tooth doesnt take that long. They numb you and pull it out. Sometimes it breaks and comes out in pieces. This tooth was stubborn with four roots that were all gnarly and wrapped around each other. Im convinced the roots were wrapped around my spinal column. Dick pulled, he twisted, he pulled some more. He worked at this tooth and it fought back. He stopped to catch his breath. He went at it again. It was like a Finally, he shook his head, put a knee on my lap, grasped the pliers with both hands and yanked. The tooth came out. If it didnt he was going to tie a string to the door handle and slam it like in the old cowboy movies. Either that or use dynamite. I didnt fall asleep that day. Dynamite reminds me of my least pleasant dental memory. I was getting a bridge on one of my lower teeth, and it was time to put on the permanent. Or so we all thought. I was going to a dentist in Jacksonville at the time and I guess when he put the temporary on he used the kind of cement used for driveways and backyard basketball courts. It wouldnt budge. It looked like a repeat of the Dr. Dick scene, but no. Instead, he looked at his nurse and straight-faced said, Get the blowtorch. vocaine in me so I didnt really care what he did and I chuckled at his funny joke. Only it wasnt a joke. She brought him a blowtorch. At which point, I spoke up. Murph furlaruph graturf mutaloof!! That roughly translates to Are you out of your mind? Youd think hed understand Novocaine since he was a dentist, but he ignored me and Swoosh! fired up the blowtorch. I almost came out of the chair. The nurse assured me it would be okay. Okay for her maybe, but this guy is six inches from my mouth with a flaming blowtorch. I was concerned. And cornered at the same time. As it worked out, he heated some kind of metal probe and put it against the temporary tooth to melt the glue. Alls well that ends well, as Shakespeare would say. I hope there are no blowtorches in the picture for Friday. MY SIDE OF THE MATTERROBERT GERARD Facebook fansWhat you had to say ... Renovations to the old Food Lion space on South 6th Street to make way for the arrival of the Tractor Supply Co. location coming to Macclenny recently be gan. We turned to Facebook last week to break the news and asked readers about their thoughts on the change. Heres a look at what they had to say: Jason Hooker: Cant wait! Glad to nally get a decent and aordable hardware store. Dennis Whelan: Cant wait, will save trips to other towns. Sandy Bryant: I think it will just destroy the existing stores that have always been here, and will do anything for you. Do you think the tractor supply people will care if you have a re, think they will care if you have a death? I know Benny Joe has helped a lot of people in this county, and people should stay loyal. No, I will continue to go to Bennetts. If I go to tractor supply, it will be to look only! Sue Hauge: Cant wait, about time. Marcia L. King: Not sure if Macclenny is ready for progress. Stay tuned. Walter Kelly Crews: I like to sup port local business owners and have been a patron of them all in our county, but dont make them a martyr. Bennetts Feed, Glen Cash Store and more especially Ace Hardware have banked on the fact that people either dont want to or cant get to Jacksonville for supplies and the prices have always exploited that fact. Maybe a little more competition will ultimately help the customers of our town. Bryce Thomas: I love the free market system. Competition is a great thing. AshleyandGary Kennedy: I think we need a Publix or Target. Cindy Clark Rhoden: I agree AshleyandGary Kennedy, I think a Publix or Target would be fantastic. I love shopping at Publix. Matthew Bareld: I think tractor supply will be open past 6 pm? Melissa Elaine Haines: I would love to see a Publix come to town. JoAnne Burger: PUBLIX PLEASE! Charles Jackson Parker Presnell: I think it is wonderful Baker County needs all it can get. Maybe someday a Home Depot. Lynne Bolen: Tractor Supply has a variety of things Bennetts & Ace dont. Ive shopped the stores in Jax and even Ocala. Bennetts has better prices on a good number of items, feed is better priced too. I think they all have a niche here. Pam Clark: Any new business helps with new jobs for Macclenny. Bring on new businesses and big name restaurants. Jerome Reimer Sr.: How long till it opens?LETTERS TO THE EDITOR IMPRESS I ONSJim McG auley Its all political theater and bad theater at that. The idea that Washington, both the legislative and executive branches, expect the taxpaying public to take them seriously when they drone on about the necessity of cutting spending is absurd on its face. These are the people who, over the past 100 years (next month) since Woodrow Wilson was elected president, have brought us to where our federal agencies spend at least a trillion dollars more every year than the government takes in. row from the Chinese or other sources purchasing our treasury bills backed by money that the federal government is printing and pumping into the market. Get that? Ever notice that when government spending is targeted at all levels they trot out predictions designed to scare you? Well okay, if we have to cut more, there will be fewer police and firemen. Fewer teachers, less money for schools, more pollution, school kids wont eat, senior citizens dining on cat food. President Obama, he who governs not on substance but on knocking down straw men and staging photo ops and visuals, yacks on in front of a group of uniformed whatevers dutifully standing there (like ly on taxpayer time and travel) in great fear of losing their jobs and making our lives less safe. Ever see him, or any President for that matter, stage the same event with, say, etymologists or pizza dough makers in the background? Nope. Nothing scary there. Getting back to what we now call sequestration, do you honestly total projected budget) will send this country down the tubes? Mind you, this is a federal government whose own analysts estimate has $115 billion in pure waste and double payments built into the system right now. And consider this, even with sequestration the government will spend more next year than this. What theyre cutting back is the rate of increase. trillion annual deficits (even before Obamacare kicks in) and the refusal to reform the biggest cause of them entitlements. If your youre not fit for a position of authority in Congress or anywhere else. Something else to consider this week amid all this pointless fussing. Private business had to sequestrate five years ago, and you didnt we did it because we had to. if you must know, was precipitated by the bottom falling out of the housing market and resulting financial collapse of big lenders who peddled derivatives consisting of home mortgages held by people who should never have been given mortgages. charge now.

The old jail sat vacant until the county secured a half-milgrade its roof, heating and air conditioning, a small cell block to hold court defendants and the sheriffs personnel.

For more than two decades the U.S. Marshals Service housed its prisoners at the old county jail, which helped offset the countys costs for housing cal prisoner numbers grew, they began crowding out the so-called boarders from other agencies. Eight years ago Sheriff Joey Dobson was sounding the alarm space for the boarders was shrinking and with it county revenues. The sheriff reminded county commissioners in October his plan to build the new jail and sheriffs complex that his department returned about It wasnt as much money as he anticipated, Sheriff Dobson said, because the department was running out of space at the existing facility and more could be realized if additional space was available. Enter the sheriffs new plan, one that would construct a much larger facility to house hundreds of Immigration and Customs En forcement (ICE) detainees for The county commission, and by extension taxpayers, would not have to borrow or assume any liability for the financing, should the county help create an tion to sell tax-free bonds to fund the project and oversee repayThere was already a small South Florida community of about 11,000 people Glades County employing the same strategy. We have the opportunity to cellent program that we could build our facility, have ICE inmates for it ... and pay for it, Sheriff Dobson told county commissioners, minutes from an Ocsheriff, former county manager Joe Cone and commissioners, began meeting with ICE represen tatives and a New Jersey-based Swan, who would sell the bonds. Once the bonds were paid off, the county would own the facility free and clear. Plus, the sheriff told commissioners, any money left over each year could be returned to the county. According to minutes from mission meeting, when Sheriff Dobson was asking the board to adopt a resolution in support of the county would have to pay the same daily rate for its inmates as ICE, but it would also receive any ated by the project on an annual basis. The following is an excerpt from those minutes showing a conversation between Sheriff Dobson, county attorney Terry ty commissioner Alex Robinson, who now serves on the nonprofits board of directors: Mr. Brown: The Glades County facility is not receiving any Sheriff Dobson: Yes they will, once the buckets are full and they are up and running. Then they can write a check back to the county for whatever. Mr. Brown: We can set it up year get paid back to either the department of law enforcement or whatever. Mr. Robinson: But you do not have to wait until all the bonds Sheriff Dobson: No and that is the same question I asked and Mr. Swan [bond salesman] said that is what it is all about, making money for the commissioners.

Doing so and boosting spending as the facility ages will both shrink any excess revenues in the future, Mr. Cox said. sheriffs office administrative chief, said it will likely be several any surpluses to the county. He declined to estimate when that may occur, fearing he would be held accountable if his projection didnt pan out.

They even used the same Tallahassee architect, Clemons Rutherford & Associates, to design the jails. differences in how the projects played out. Glades Countys population is so the local inmate pool there is estimated they house only 30 locals per day versus about 130 per day here. As such, Glades County has not needed to transfer money from elsewhere in its budget to cover local inmate housing costs, despite the daily rate jumping 33 percent after the new facility opened, according to Glades County Manager Larry Hilton. Theres also been no pressure out money to the county, said Robert Demann, a chief with the Mr. Hilton said he didnt expect any revenue from the project either, until the bonds are re tired. We havent heard any talk of that so far, he said. What theyre doing now is paying off the bonds and were getting eq uity in the building. The daily rate and associated ties are expected to rise in the future, however. Mr. Demann said ICE currentgotiations in the near future may ICE could start requiring more amenities for its detainees at the same time. The most recent amenity mandated was a barber shop on the premises. ministrative chief here, also expects ICE to renegotiate its rate eral agency has done in other countys in Florida. Those negotiations will take place this year. A rate increase would also increase the countys bill for housing locals, because the rates for a single facility cannot differ based on where the inmates originate. Mr. Demann said a court case in New Jersey made that very clear. He said several towns were sharing a jail and boarding ICE prisoners at a higher rate than locals, but the court ruled the towns could no longer charge a premium for immigration detainees.

She said that could make it easier for new information to emerge. Though theres no new evi dence in the case at this point, Lt. Dougherty said he intends to use new technology to evaluate the old evidence and perhaps bring about some conclusion. For Sheriff Dobson, theres a personal connection to the case. Years ago I worked the case, traveling all over the south, he recalled. We thought we knew who did it, but we couldnt prove it ... I worked it myself and was never able to solve it, so its per sonal to me. Lt. Dougherty said one inditigation, the victims sisters exhusband, Walter Robert Pullem, person of interest. The investigator has not de termined the mans whereabouts as yet. A polygraph exam in November of 1983 implicated Mr. Pullem in the murder, but that wasnt enough to charge him with the crime.

She said Mr. Davis returned from Jacksonville with her son, dropping him off near the old MacThat story doesnt sound plausible to her, however. Art was too lazy to walk unless he had to, said Ms. Wallace. Another potential suspect, perhaps with the last name Har vley, lived close to the victims place of employment. Sheriff Dobson said a wonder bar found at the mans residence may have been the murder weapon. He said an anthropologist at the University of Florida indicated it matched injuries to the victims skull, but there was no evidence linking the bar to the crime scene.

He said nobody had directly asked him to sponsor such a resolution, but he had received several e-mails from constituents containing links to other local governing bodies across the nation that had already adopted similar measures. Since the shooting in Connecticut and other mass shootings around the country, theres been a lot of anti-gun argument, Mr. Giddens said, acknowledging that the resolution isnt likely to have any impact in Washington. I know its not going to reach the Presidents desk, he said. Theres really nothing we can do but create more awareness. We (in tion. have come out publicly in support of the Concluding Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford.

In his reply, Mr. Thompson stated that the metal would be scrapped and the lumber that was salvageable would be used in other areas.

The film, a chronicle of the decade-long It follows a CIA operative known only as Maya. Simply portrayed by Jessica Chastain,were given little information about this real-life character and we soon understand why. She is still out there doing her job; still in the field hunting terrorists. Chastains Maya has been a CIA operative since her recruitment out of high school. Presumably, she had skills that attracted CIA recruiters but were not told what they are. The slight, unassuming red head is thrown right into the fire after being sent to the Middle East. She takes part in the waterboarding of a prisoner. Lie to me and Ill hurt you, a CIA agent known only as Dan tells the prisoner. Tell me the truth and I wont. When one agent questions the womans presence in the interrogation, Dan (Jason Clarke) tells the other, Shes a killer. We never see that side of Maya, nor is Chastain given any back story to build her character. Instead Ladin and his operatives as the story develops and we see the toll it takes on her. The first third of the movie has Maya and her colleagues at black sites, undisclosed locations around the world where prisoners are held and tortured. It is very disturbing to watch, particularly as the interrogators treat it so matter of factly. lows the day-to-day activities of people under extreme stress and allows us to watch their development as characters. In her previous film about the The Hurt Locker, she won Zero Dark Thirtytain, but the film failed to get the nod at last week ends awards. They deserve the nominations. Chastain is plodding, intense, unlikable and driven. When she discovers the name of someone she suspects might be for five years until a tip leads to his real name. stopped and the agents had to rely on electronic intelligence and tips. Maya discovers the couriers real more telling scenes of the film, a CIA agent buys a mothers phone number. It is a vital link that leads Maya to the compound Suspected is the key word. Up until the Navy Seals he was actually there. There was no hard evidence or visual sighting of the terrorist despite the CIAs best efforts. Maya was so convinced that she took the lead to CIA director Leon Panetta (James Gandolfini). Panetta, who comes across well in the film, goes against the advice of many of his top aides and takes Mayas evidence to the President. The final third of the film is the run up to the raid. We meet the members of Seal Team Six, who look nothing like sailors but come across as wise-cracking, hard as nails cowboys who play touch football and throw horseshoes one minute and are completely professional killers the next. Maya is treated with wary respect as the person who located their target. arent certain that he is even there. It is intense filmmaking and we are left with the feeling that what we are witnessing is very close to the truth. This is as far from a Quentin Tarrantino movie as you can get. Dont go in to this movie expecting to whoop and allow you that feeling. In fact, you never even get a I came away from the film feeling depressed and vulnerable, which I suppose we are in this age of global terrorism. Im glad we have people like Maya in place, but I dont envy her the job and if Chastains amazing portrayal is any indication, the psychological toll is immense.
