By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
A Suwannee County man who
escaped from prison in 1983 is one of
12 fugitives two Florida agencies are
seeking as part of a "12 Days of
Fugitives" program.
The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement and the Florida
Department of Corrections have cash
and want to give it away as kind of a
Christmas present to anyone who
can lead them to any of the 12,
including former Suwannee County
resident Harry Dana Braswell Jr.,
who, if still alive, would be 51 today.
He's said to have ties to Jasper and
has been spotted here at least once.
Braswell, 17 at the time, was
sentenced to life in prison for the

1975 murder of a 79-year-old
Suwannee County man in his home.
According to an investigative
report by the FDLE, Braswell, along
with Marshall Eugene Dunbar,
Joseph Perry Padelford and Billy
Wayne Taylor, were riding around in
Braswell's 1963 red Ford Falcon on
February 19, 1975, looking for a
house to break into so they "could
get some money."
Dunbar said they should target the
home of John J. Robins, who lived
near him. After discussing how to
proceed, it was determined that they
would fake car trouble and ask for
assistance. They parked the Falcon
down the road from Robins' home.
Robins told them he could not help

34-year-old murder gets another look


Continued From Page 1A

due to several broken ribs. Robins
did, however, let the four use his 1975
Datsun station wagon to try to
jumpstart the car. The four drove the
Datsun to Running Springs and
decided to go back to the home, enter
it and demand money.
Dunbar, armed with a .25 caliber
handgun, and Braswell, armed with a
.38 caliber special, knocked on the
door and told Robins that they could
not get their car started, at which time
Robins invited them in for a "cold
drink."
According to the FDLE report, "the
two followed him into the kitchen
where, when Robins opened the
refrigerator, they pointed the guns at
him. Robins turned around and
asked, 'Is this a stickup?'"
The two said it was and Taylor,


armed with a knife, and Padelford,
armed with a .22 rifle, then entered
the home. Robins gave them $5 and
offered $200 in traveler's checks,
which they refused. The four then
took turns watching Robins as the
other three ransacked the home.
Padelford cut the phone lines.
Robins was then taken to his
bedroom, made to sit on his bed, and
asked if he planned to tell anyone
about the incident.
"Robins advised them that if not
tomorrow, then the next day," the
report said.
A "conference" was held in the
hallway of the home and it was
determined that since Robins knew
Dunbar and that he would turn them
in, he "would have to die."
Robins' hands were tied across his
stomach with a necktie, while another
necktie was tied around his feet and


to the foot of the bed. Dunbar and
Robins then tied Robins' hands to his
feet with a blue cloth woman's belt.
The four poured alcohol onto a
cloth and placed it over Robbins' face,
because Dunbar thought that by
inhaling the alcohol, Robbins would
develop amnesia and forget the
incident. When that didn't work,
Braswell placed a pillow over
Robbins' face for about 10 minutes,
killing him. The ties and belt were
then removed and Robbins was
placed on his bed with his right hand
to one side. A sheet was then pulled
up to Robbins's chest.
The four then drove to Running
Springs where they abandoned the
Falcon by pushing it over an
embankment into the river.
The four were arrested just three
days later.
Braswell was sentenced to life in


prison, but he wasn't there long.
According to the Web site of the TV
show America's Most Wanted,
Braswell and another inmate were
loading filing cabinets onto a truck at
the Sumter Correctional Institution in
1983 when the two climbed into
separate cabinets and hid until the
truck left. Once the truck left the
prison, the two jumped out. The other
inmate was located a few years later
during a routine traffic stop in
Oregon. Little information is available
as to the whereabouts of Braswell. He
has reportedly been spotted in Jasper
as well as in Odessa, Texas. Up to
$2,500 is available to anyone with
information leading to the capture of
Braswell. He was last seen with a
tattoo of a cross and chain on the back
of his right hand, and another tattoo
of his initials, "HDB," and a heart on
his left arm.

people, the very same people that we see throughout
the rest of the year, but that are somehow trans-
formed at Christmas time. It is a season that has its
own unique human seasonal characteristics. People
in general are kinder, they smile more often; they
seem to know that we are all sharing something, that
for a brief time, we all have something more in com-
mon. This is a season of celebration and when peo-
ple are celebrating, even when it's hectic, they are
more fun to be around. Daily pleasantries such as
"Hello" or "Have a nice day" are nice but "Merry
Christmas" really kicks it up a notch. And there is so
much opportunity to share the joy, it is a wonderful
contagious phenomenon. The truth is that every-
thing good that happens takes a chain of real people
to create. So I say to all of you good and real people,
"Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!" I hope
to see you out and about, enjoying life in White
Springs.

Greetings to One

It is hard to believe
that it is time to get
news in before Christ-

When reminded of
this my first thought
was "it can't be". But it
is. My hope is that
each of you who has
expressed your feelings
to me during the past
year, will have a

BLESSED CHRIST-
MAS!
Thank you for all of
your encouragement,
patience and care, not
only for me but for the
paper. My special
thanks to the staff of
the JASPER NEWS for
your encouragement
and understanding.
And to all who have
supported me and the
PAPER throughout


the years.
My special request is
that we all will keep in
mind the REASON
FOR THE SEASON,
and this is one of the
first blessings, we can
put this in writing to
the public and express
our trust in God who
sent his Son and gives
us a special time of cel-

To each of you, a
wish for health, happi-

A gospel music spectacular will be taking place at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park
in Madison on Saturday, January 2, 2010, featuring gospel music legend Naomi
and the Segos. The concert is free admission, but a love offering will be received
during the concert.
Originally known as The Sego Brothers and Naomi, this group began gaining
exposure in the late 1950's. James Sego, along with his wife Naomi and brothers
W.R. and Lamar, hosted a popular television program on WMAZ- TV in Macon,
Ga. It was during this time they traveled to Nashville, Tenn. and recorded their
first hit that would gain them national recognition, "Is My Lord Satisfied With
Me." However, superstardom came in 1962 when The Sego Brothers and Naomi
became the first group in history to record and sell one million records with the
song, "Sorry, I Never Knew You." The rest of the 1960's saw them touring the
globe with many other hit songs. During the 1970's their popularity increased
with performances on the popular TV show "The Gospel Singing Jubilee." Per-
haps one of their biggest songs came along during that time as they enjoyed the
success of the chart topper "Hallelujah Square."
The late 1970's saw tragedy as well as success. In 1979 James Sego, Naomi's
husband, passed away. During the 1980's Naomi continued to travel and record.
She remarried, to a Texas evangelist named Vernon Reader, and the group un-
derwent a name change to Naomi and The Segos. Vernon passed away in Octo-
ber of 1998.
Now, in their 5th decade of Gospel Music ministry, this group continues to
press forward for the cause of Christ. Traveling some 200 dates a year all over
the United States and Canada, the message of this group remains strong and
powerful. Perhaps it is each group member's own personal experience with God
that continues to drive their excellence in performance and ministry. Naomi and
The Segos is a legendary name in Gospel Music. With their traditional sounds,
musical excellence, and sincerity, they produce a message that will lead people
to Christ.
Naomi and the Segos consist of Naomi Sego Reader, Scott Spangler, Jerry Gill
and Bryant Thigpen. For more information, please call (850) 464-0114.

If tears could build a stairway, I'd climb right
up to you...and bring you home again.
Instead I'm here in sorrow and sadness without you.
No farewell words were spoken,
No time for goodbyes.
You were gone before we knew it
and only God knows why.
Our hearts still ache in sadness
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you, No one will ever know.
May you rest in peace until the
day we are together again.
Know that you are forever loved
and greatly missed.


Losing My Son, Manny
is the most devastating thing that has ever happened to me.
Before Manny was born, I prayed to God for a little boy.
God gave me my Manny. He was truly a gift from Heaven.
He was my shining star.
Everyone who met him just loved him; from the time he was
born until the time he grew into a nice young man. I would
have people come into my restaurant and give me compliments
about him all the time. I've always been so proud of him.
Manny was so beautiful inside and out. I can't begin to tell you
how much I miss him. (There aren't enough stars in the sky).
All I do know is God gave him to me but took him home too soon!
For what reason, I don't know. But, there's one thing I do know;
he's my special boy that I love with all my heart and he will never
be forgotten. We have really lost someone very special.
Until we're together again,
Love always,
His Mother

NFCC welcomed visitors to Christmas at the Mansion


Community enjoyed "Christmas Spectacular" open house


Submitted by: NFCC Office of College Advancement
MADISON, FL- North Florida Community Col-
lege, Friends of the Mansion and members of the
community celebrated "Christmas Spectacular" dur-
ing a holiday reception at the Wardlaw-Smith-Goza
Conference Center (The Mansion) on Dec. 8. Guests
were welcomed by NFCC President John Grosskopf,
WSG Coordinator Maria Greene and Director of the
NFCC Foundation and Alumni Relations Gina
Rutherford.
The evening reception offered visitors first
glimpse at the Mansion's holiday d6cor and was a
wonderful prelude to the Mansion's holiday open
house held Dec. 9-13. This year's "Christmas Spec-
tacular" theme featured the various rooms and cor-
ridors of NFCC's historic conference center beauti-
fully decorated by area businesses and community
members. Guests of the holiday reception also en-
joyed music by Jay Hicks, guitar, and Lynn Sapp, pi-
ano.
The main hallway was spectacularly decorated by
the Madison County Junior Auxiliary. Downstairs
rooms included the Library decorated by Wendy
Bartlam and April Yungel; the Parlor by Cheri,
Harold, Troy and Traci Platt, Debbie Scott and Di-
anne Sullivan; the Dining Room by the Madison


Women's Club; and the Music Room by the Madison
Garden Club.
Atop the garland wrapped staircase, visitors en-
joyed the upstairs hall decorated by Madison Market
and Antiques; the Breckinridge Room by The Madi-
son Florist; the Guest Room by Thelma DeHart and
John and Laura Fine; the Rose Room by Madison
County Community Bank; and the Children's Room
by Bali's Base Street Florist. The outside of the Man-
sion was decorated by Mary Kay Blume, Ann Smith
and Libby Welch. Coordinating the decorations was
Jackie Johnson.
"I thank all the volunteers, from this year to years
past, for their time and effort in decorating the man-
sion and acting a hostesses," said Greene. "Without
our community volunteers, the Christmas at the
Mansion holiday open house would not be possi-
ble."
The Madison County Junior Auxiliary also hosted
its "Cookies with Santa" event on Dec. 12 at the
Mansion inviting area children to stop in and have
their picture taken with Santa Claus. There was a
wonderful turn out for the event.
For more information about NFCC's Wardlaw-
Smith-Goza Conference Center, contact Maria
Greene, Mansion coordinator, at (850) 973-9432 or

26 8/%. Newspaper share of local online advertising is 26.9%
exceeding yellow pages. TV sites and radio sites combined.

83.1 Billion. Advertising on newspaper websites
exceeded $3.1 billion per year

2. X. Borrell reports that newspaper website's share of local
online revenue is more than that from all other local media
combined (2.8x directories; 2.9x that of local tv; 12x radio station
sites, 20x business and alternative papers and 28x magazines)

46%. People do more than visit a newspaper site. 46% of adults
visiting a newspaper website took some action. More newspaper
website users took action after seeing online advertising than all
other local sites, and portals according to OPA research.

28%. The percentage of newspaper websites visitors who go
once a day or more frequently.
