By arand jury Friday
McNutt indicted for first degree murder
A grand jury handed down
two capital murder charges
Friday against Paul E. McNutt,
69, for the Dec. 5, 2011,
shooting deaths of Lee Edward
Spees Sr., 70, and his son, Lee
Grand jurors also returned
an indictment of attempted first
degree murder while armed for
the shooting of David Spees,
42, as well as a fourth count of
shooting at a building.
The two first degree murder
charges are both capital
felonies, meaning they could
carry a death sentence or life in
prison. The attempted murder
charge is a life felony.
State Attorney Skip Jarvis
and Assistant State Attorney
Elise Blair presented the case to
the grand jury.
"After considering the
testimony and evidence
presented, the grand jury
returned the indictment of first
degree murder (while armed)
for Lee Spees Sr. and Lee
Spees Jr., attempted first degree
murder for the shooting of
David Spees and shooting at a
building," Jarvis said.
"From information developed
during the investigation, it
appears that the incident was
the result of a dispute over the
use of an easement by the Spees
family. The matter was already
This was Paul McNutt's fourth first appearance hearing since his initial arrest

held without bond at the Taylor County Jail.

might have resolved the issue.
Unfortunately, it appears that
due to people being unwilling or
unable to keep their tempers in
check, two people are dead and
one is potentially harmed for
life. We all need to remember
that when we allow our temper
to take control, we will be held
responsible for the result. We
need to sometimes stop, take a
deep breath and think before we
act," he continued.
During a first appearance
hearing on the new charges
Monday afternoon, Judge
Stephen "Buddy" Murphy
ordered that McNutt continue to
be held without bond.
When he asked McNutt if he
understood the charges against
him, he replied, "I think so."
Murphy re-stated the charges
and again asked McNutt if he
"I do," McNutt responded.
McNutt's wife, Diane, and
daughter were the only family

the hearing. During a brief

Clearly, her father who we eyed

Nancy Metzger didn't want to go but
that didn't matter.
So the Sugar Shack closed for that

who knew how to run a business--could
learn how to make leather coin purses

In retrospect, I know she detested this
week with squealing girls who didn't
have a clue...well, about anything. She
spent a lot of time peering into the

of us were rushing to make it across

with a bunch of squealing, smelly girls
who had been communing with nature
against their will.

she could cross in time, too, but her

Finally, Nancy Metzger, in her take-

In recognition of 15 years
of service to the board of the
Healthy Start Coalition of
Jefferson, Madison and Taylor

representative Mary Wallace
was recently presented a
plaque and vase of "signature

unique experience as a Healthy
Start screener, a public nurse,
and community advocate was
invaluable to furthering the
mission of the coalition. No
words can articulate how she
will be missed."
Wallace's departure from
the board left a "challenging"
vacancy to fill.
"Following seven months of
rigorous search, the coalition
is now pleased to welcome
Emily Ketring, who was
unanimously elected by the
Taylor membership attending
the Shared Services meeting
held on Jan. 30," Hagan said.

Officials urge residents to protect themselves from rabies exposure
Taylor County health officials
are urging residents to avoid
contact with wild and stray
animals to protect themselves
from the risk of rabies exposure.
In Florida, raccoons, bats
and foxes are the animals most
frequently diagnosed with
rabies. Other animals that are
at high risk for rabies include
skunks, otters, coyotes, bobcats,
and stray or unvaccinated cats,
dogs and ferrets. Each year, all
Florida counties receive reports
of rabid animals.
Taylor County has not had
a positive rabies test recently,
but there have been reports of
animals acting "strangely."
"Rabies is a potentially fatal
disease. It is important not to
handle wild animals, to be aware
of unusual acting animals,
and to keep pets vaccinated
against rabies," said James
Rachal, environmental health
director, Taylor County Health
Rabies is transmitted through
exposure to the saliva and
nervous tissue from a rabid
animal through a bite, scratch or
contact with mucous membranes
such as the eyes, nose or mouth.
The health department works
with Taylor County Animal
Control in responding to
incidents of animal bites, tests
animals for rabies through the
Department of Health state
laboratory, and quarantines
animals as necessary. The
health department also provides
rabies vaccinations to victims
of animal bites, the only known
effective treatment for rabies
prevention in humans.
The following are steps you
can take to protect yourself and
your loved ones against rabies:
Keep rabies vaccinations up
to date for all pets.
Keep your pets under
direct supervision so they do
not come in contact with wild
animals. If your pet is bitten by
a wild animal, seek veterinary
assistance for the animal
immediately and contact Taylor
County Animal Control at 850-
Call your local animal
control agency to remove
any stray animals from your
Spay or neuter your pets
to help reduce the number of
unwanted pets that may not be
properly cared for or regularly
Do not handle, feed, or
unintentionally attract wild
animals with open garbage cans
Never adopt wild animals or
bring them into your home.
Teach children never to
handle unfamiliar animals, wild
or domestic, even if they appear
Prevent bats from entering
living quarters or occupied
spaces in homes, churches,
schools, and other similar areas,
where they might come in
contact with people and pets.
Aggressive acting animals
should be reported to Taylor
County Animal Control at 838-
3525 for handling. Anyone
who is bitten or scratched
by wild animals or strays
should report the incident to
a doctor immediately, as well
as Animal Control and the
health department. The contact
number to report an animal bite
to the Taylor County Health
Department is 850-584-5087,

WHY DO I HEAR ...
BUT NOT UNDERSTAND?
Study by Cambridge University in England Reveals Key Answer
Until recently, there was no
practical way to identify dead
regions of hearing cells in the
ear. However, a new British
developed procedure using
standard test equipment now
allows for identification of dead
hearing cell regions. The study
suggests that the presence or
absence of dead regions may
have serious implications in the
fitting of hearing aids.
This research reveals that
amplifying dead cells is a
mistake which will result in
poorer speech understanding in
A new type of digitally

Audibel -the world's leader in

An oak tree shades the Foley House portion of this
home, which has doubled in size. It is located at Foley
Cut-Off and Mixon Road.
Shirley and Harry Hall, both former residents of
Foley, stand before the Perry Garden Club building
which originally-housed the club at Foley. Behind-tdhis
building, the former Foley library is used as storage.
"I believe this belonged to the barber at Foley," Hall
said of this Foley House on Foley Cut-Off Road. "This is
just about as close to the original house as you can get."
By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
In the early 1950s, when
Buckeye Cellulose took
ownership of Brooks-Scanlon's
considerable Florida holdings,
the community of Foley was
dispersed...and so were its
The houses, which had
provided workers easy access
to the lumber mill, were sold
for a token fee in a lottery and
moved from company grounds.
Today, they are scattered
throughout Taylor County, but
only a trained eye with a keen
sense of Foley's history can
pick them out. That would be
Harry Hall, who grew up in
Foley and continues to help
organize a reunion for this
former community each spring.
He drove me to the parking
lot near today's Buckeye Park
and began his orientation.
Pointing to the credit union
building he said, "That's the
approximate location of the
junior high school which sat on
three acres." It's difficult to
envision now, for the paved
roads which have been added
do not delineate the boundaries
of the school's property.
Buckeye Park itself,
however, is a good orientation
point, for it was "the central
part of the residential area," he
said. He points to a towering
sycamore tree in the company's
new crop of eucalyptus and
says, "The two-bedroom house
I was born in was right there.
In 1942, we moved to a larger
house with three bedrooms
when my mother's sister came
to live with us after her
Also located on Foley Cut-Off Road, this home started as a Foley House and
stretched through the years to accommodate families and their cars.
husband was drafted into the
Navy." The rent, he remembers,
was $11 a month which
included electricity and
utilities. "Nobody moved
during the Depression," he
said. "It was too risky and
staying with Brooks-Scanlon
Hogs and other agricultural
animals were free range in the
area. "My mama always said
they'd pick the fleas off us
before bedtime because the
hogs rooted underneath our
house at night, keeping the dry,
sandy soil infested. This was in
the 1930s before the yards were
fenced, and porches and
windows were screened.
"The church was right about
here," he said pointing west
from the park, "and the garden
club was right here, with a
library," he added. Both the
garden club and library
buildings were moved by
Buckeye to their current
location adjacent to Forest
Capital Park. The garden club
serves its original purpose, with
the small library building
providing additional storage
"The commissary was near
the current administration
office and the former
administrative office was about
in this same location, with nice
grounds--iron sculptures and
plants-- wh6re we would gather
Camphor trees, he said, help
him find landmarks on the
According to Hall, Arndt
the layout for all the houses in
Foley. "I do not recall whether
he was an engineer or not but
he was a brilliant man," said
Hall. "All the houses were
constructed from first run
lumber from the mill which
used both shortleaf and
longleaf pine at the time."
He remembers Boulder
Boulevard, thus named because
"they didn't pave it, they just
dumped a lot of big rocks." He
also recalls that "roughly,
where the railroad tracks are
now behind the administration
building, is where the nice
executive homes were"--
Executive Row, he calls it.
These, he said, were for the
general manager, the personnel
manager, the supply manager,
the woods manager. Then there
was a guest house in the row,
and the last one belonged to
Old Man McDonald (O.J.
McDonald who actually moved
much machinery from the site
when Buckeye made the
purchase, and established a mill
at an abandoned site in
Most of the Foley houses
were built in 1928-29, Hall
says, when the mill was
constructed. "There was a
master carpenter, J. P. Garver,
who had worked the boom in
Miami. He came here and told
me he laid all the brick piers for
the houses built in Foley,
overseeing the on-site
Traveling hither and yon for
a job was not an unfamiliar
happening for tradesmen and
But living near your worksite
was essential. "People didn't
have transportation to work, so
it was imperative that they
lived within walking distance."
Hall recalls that almost all the
labor at the Foley plant was
accomplished by black
workers, and there were two
areas, called "quarters," where
they lived on the property, also
in Foley houses. "Most of the
white workers were lumber
graders and foremen," he said.
Hall also recalls a wooden
boardwalk which marked the
path from residences to the
mill. "That helped us stay out
of the sandspurs," he said, "and
that was our kite field," he said
pointing in another direction.
His memory of it is as clear,
and as familiar, as the back of
The kite field's mention
caused happy childhood
memories surface. "We would
fish the Fenholloway River
with chicken necks, and catch
catfish above the place where
raw sewage entered. Then we
sold those catfish for 10 cents
each. That was our shotgun
shell money," he said.
He also recalls Calhoun's
Comer, a truck stop, restaurant
and bar on U.S. 19, about a
mile from the school site, off
limits because he was the son
of a Baptist preacher.
"They cooked the best
hamburgers," he said, shaking
his head with delight. "but I
wasn't allowed to go there."
Then he paused. "But when we
were out at night, there was a
nice old black man who worked
there. He'd bring us a
hamburger outside for 15
Foley houses hold stories
like this and more.
Hall believes this Foley House, also on Foley Cut-Off,
belonged to one of the plant's first middle-managers.
He recalls the design with the offset front porch.
Both of these Foley Houses (top and bottom) are
located off Beach Road. In the bottom photograph, a
back porch was screened--a common improvement to
these homes. Many years ago, Hall said, the Taylor
County Health Department received grant money for
screening porches in order to combat mosquito-borne
illnesses such as malaria.
Tiffany and Michael Upshaw are still making improvements to their Foley house, located on West Folsom Street.
Purchased in 2008, the home features two bedrooms and fresh exterior siding. Michael is currently involved
in interior renovations including insulation and sheetrock. He was not surprised to learn that their home was
constructed of first-run timber from the Brooks-Scanlon Corporation, noting that drilling and hammering have
been challenging. The Upshaws were told the house was constructed in 1928, the year most Foley houses--and
the mill they surrounded--were built.
