Painting to celebrate life

Creativity bringing her back after debilitating stroke

Press Staff
Carol Nelson is happiest with
a paint brush in her hand. She
has just put the finishing touches
on a group of wood pumpkin
figures she was commissioned to
design and paint for a front yard
Halloween scene in downtown
"I call this group the Happy
Pumpkin Family," Ms. Nelson1
says smiling. "My friend Mark
Lyons always produces the
wood cutouts for me..Then I get
down to the business of deciding
the colors and details."
For the Jacksonville native
whonowresides in Glen St. Mary
with her family, every stroke of
the brush is an affirmation of
life and faith.
In 1997, seven months. into
her first pregnancy, Carol Nelson
suffered a massive stroke, the
result of an undetected ,blood
clot. in her brain. She lay in
Baptist Medical Center, the right
side of her body completely

paralyzed, her speech reduced
to unintelligible groans.
"I kept telling my husband
that I wanted to go home," said
NMs. Nelson. "But he couldn't
understand what I was saying. It
was such a helpless feeling."
Friends and family manned
round-the-clock shifts to help
care for and feed her. That
allowed her husband, who drove
a truck, to keep his job.
The stroke caused the baby, a
girl, to deliver two weeks early.
Luckily, she delivered normally
with no complications. Again
friends and family stepped in to
help care for little Heather.
The doctors weren't hopeful
about the chances of Ms.
Nelson's recovery. When she
was able to sit up in a wheel
chair, her husband rolled her
down to see one of the doctors.
She remembers him looking at
her file and then stating that it
would be a good idea for her to
make a will.
"That was when it finally

hit me the reality of my own
mortality,", Ms. Nelon says.
They managed to visit a lawyer
and get a will drafted.
After returning home,
postpartum depression set in.
She still required caregivers
around the clock. Her appetite
disappeared. A pic-line (intra-
venous catheter) fed a blood-
thinning medication into her
system because the blood clot
was still present.
"I couldn't eat because
the depression took a%%ay my
desire for food," Ms. Nelson
remembers. "I was terrified of
losing consciousness because
the blood clot might kill me
in my sleep. It was a terrible
One night when she felt the
lowest point of despair, she
asked God to intervene either
take her permanently or let her
eat and sleep so she could try to
get better.

Grandjury hears Dressel case November 1

The Baker County Grand Jury is expected to hear
the prosecution case November 1 against Bobbie
Dressel, accused in the shooting death of ex-girl-
friend Cindy Below at her south Macclenny trailer
home on October 16.
Mr. Dressel was returned to Macclenny the after-
noon of October 18 from Liberty County, Ga. south
of Savannah. He was arrested there at an Interstate
95 exit late on the same day of the shooting of Ms.
Below, 30, the mother of his 1-year-old son.

The accused, 29, made a first appearance shortly
after returning here and is now in the Duval County
jail without bond. He is charged with first-degree
This will be the second murder case presented
to the current grand jury. It indicted Melinda Smith
and Steve Arnold in September for the stabbing
death of Dorsey Bennett, 68, of Cuyler on August
12. Both are in county jail charged also with first-
degree murder.

Crediting itself for a job well
done and declaring the move will
entice others into public service.
the Glen St. Mary Town Council
voted October 17 to join up with
the Florida retirement system.
In doing so, the board voted
unanimously to include itself in
the deal.
"We've worked hard," said
Councilman Woody Crews, the
most vocal in calling for a mo-
tion to have Glen kick into the
state system. Councilmen also
cited the fact that longtime main-
tenance worker Joe Raulerson
retired recently without a pen-
sion, and offering it from here
out is an incentive for both exist-
ing and incoming workers.
Other than the five council
members. Glen St. Mary has but
three others on the payroll.
Mayor Juanice Padfgett. \ho
had been corresponding with
Florida's Division of Retirement
prior to last week's vote. said
a decision will come later on
whether Glen funds an amount
equal to 9 percent of gross pay to
the present or simply begins par-
ticipation on at a future date.
John Kucz' anski,. spokesman
for the Department of Manage-
ment Services in Tallahassee,
said compensation for past ser-
vice with public funds depends
on how Glen pays its employees.
Until the time the system is put
into place, however, the maxi-
mum pay-in is 9 percent.
"They can buy credit into the
system, but we'd need a clarifi-
cation on how they are paid,"
said Mr. Kuczwanski, explain-
ing that if compensation in the
past has been salary plus other
consideration it complicates the
issue. Councilmen make $200
monthly; Mayor Padget $1833.
Council members likely qual-
ify for the elected official rate
where Glen kicks in 12 percent
and retirement benefits accrue at
an .accelerated 3 percent annu-
ally. They become vested in ten
years, then draw 3 percent per
year for each year of participa-
tion, based on average pay for
the final five years.
In other business last week,
the Council formalized its con-
tract with newly hired town at-
torney Joel Foreman of Lake
City, replacing Phyllis Rosier of
Starke who is now on the circuit
Mr. Foreman, who briefed the
board on a number of pending
matters that night, will charge a
$500 monthly retainer that in-
cludes meeting attendance and
two hours. Additional hours are
at $150 each.
Mr. Foreman recommended
the town adopt a policy allowing
existing deep wells where they
already exist on parcels connect-
ing to the central water system.
Mayor Padgett cited two cases
where that is the case now,
The attorney cautioned against
enforcement woes that follow
ambiguous policy in this area,
and suggested it be included in
Glen St. Mary's utility ordinance.
The provision prohibits use of
existing wells for uses other than
irrigation when residences are
connected to the central water

Dear Editor:
I am writing this letter as I grieve for a family member who left us, it seems, way
before she should have.
I'm speaking of Cynthia Below, who was brutally murdered at her home by her es-
tranged boyfriend Bobbie Dressel. "CindN Poo," as I called her, was a great person. She.
was a corrections officer, a friend and a mother to two precious babies. Cynthia didn't
S v want to leave us so soon, and she tried in vain to stop the person who was trying to take
her from us.
Bobbie Dressel was no stranger to the law when Cindy first asked for a restraining
order against him in July-of this year. Bobbie violated the restraining order numerous
times. "
He once threw a brick through Cind\ 's windshield as she left work; ,another time he
h fired an AK-47 assault rifle in her yard while she was, inside. And then there were the
phone calls hundreds of threatening phone calls.
Bobbie Dressel \ a:s arrested in August for \iolating the restraining order, and subse-
quentl\ released on bond with the stipulation that he Near a GPS tracking device around
his ankle. The de\ ice does two things: first. Bobbie Dressel's location anywhere in the
world is available to the Sheriff's Office 24 hoIurs a day, seven days a week: second, if
he went to any location that Cind was associated with the monitoring company could
^0 call the Sheriff's OffKie.
With a restraining older in place and Bcbbie Dressel wearing the GPS device, Cind
- should have been safe.
S. ,. That wasn't the case at all.
On October 15. Bobbie Dressel called Cindy over 30 times threatening to kill her.
C CindN reported these incidents to the Sheriff's Office and a report was made. This is the
point at which Sheriff Joey Dobson had the opportunity, to sa\e a beautiful oung mother
of two from a horrible fate at the hands of a lunatic.
\%e all know w hat happened less than 24 hours after a report was made to the Sheriff's
Office. Cind\ Below \\as murdered.
Here is whfat should have happened. When C, nthia called the sheriffon the 15th to re-
port death threats had been made. the BCSO should ha\ e called thlie monitoring company
and learned Bobbie Dressel's location. If-he was out of the county, a \ arrant could ha\e
been obtained so any agency\ could pick him up.
Ajudge has the power to denN bond to any person he or she deems a threat to the pub-
lic. Bobbie Dressel demonstrated time and time again lie was a serious threat to Cindy.
Unfortunately, these simple steps weren't taken b\ Sheriff Dobson, and the result \was a
tragedy .
Sheriff Joey Dobson stood in front of the television cameras on the morning of Octo-
ber 16\ while Cindy was 1\ ing dead on the floor of her home and told reporters two things
I \ ill al ways remember.
First. he said, "W\Ve can't place a deputy out here at this house 24 hours a day, seven
days a week...." I think in a situation like this with a person like Bobbie Dressel it would
l have been a smnnall price to pa3 to post a deputy at Cindy "s home until Bobbie was located.
With the GPS tracking bracelet he would ha\ e been found quickly.
Second. Sheriff Dobson said. "As any person knows, a law enforcement agency can
only do what we can do."
I would agree with that statement if his office had done everything that could have
been done. In the case of Cindy Below, Sheriff Dobson abandoned the basic duty he ha,4
to protect human life, and there is no excuse fdr his' inaction.' ,
Perhaps if Sheriff Dobson had worked as hard on Cindy's case as he works ,.R sN
politics, maybe Cindy. would still be with us.

School buses have changed
in the last decade. Since they are
rotated out of the system every
10 years, the .tough, no frills
work-horse buses that weie such
a common sight on the roads a
generation ago are becoming
a thing of the past. Modem
buses are larger and designed
specifically with comfort and
safety in mind.
"Today, a typical bus in this.
county logs between .20,000-
30,000 miles annually," says Mr.
Pelham. Our buses use about
700 gallons of fuel every day -
more when it rains." They cost
about $70,000 brand new, and
that's without air conditioning."
The front seats of new buses
'have panels that fold down to
reveal built-in child safety seats
for the smallest passengers. The
seats are :fully padded with a
covered back.
They are designed to absorb
impact during a collision and act
as a buffer.between the children.
Flame retardant material is
used to construct the, coverings
and all seats have seat belts.
The driver's seating area is
ergonomically designed for the
greatest comfort and ease of.
operation. 1 oe
Doors are no longer manually
operated, but are air powered
and open \ ith a simple flip of
a switch.
"Our veteran drivers, who are
all too familiar with 'driver's
shoulder' are especially glad for
that," Mr. Pelham laughs.
Man\ buses are now sporting
new "California" mirrors which
have large, round, wide-angle,
reflectors. This allows drivers
the \\ idest possible viewing area
to see walking children, cars and
other objects.
New buses also have an
automated crossing arm
attached to the front bumper
that is activated when the bus
comes to a complete stop. This
feature also ensures the driver
can visibly account for children
as they cross in front while,
approaching 'or departing the
About 250 feet prior to
stopping, the system of amber
warning lights begin to flash.
The system switches to red
flashing lights at full stop when
loading and unloading.
The front control panel,
located to the driver's left, is
Updated nearly every year,

There is even a noise reduction
switch activated %when the bus
approaches a railroad crossing.
It inumediatelh reduces noise
of radios. air blowers, etc., so
that the sound of a train engine
or horn can be more easily
detected. ,
"With the size of buses, their
vivid yellow color and the very
conspicuous flashing warning
lights, it's hard to believe any
driver wouldn't be able to see a
school bus," says Mr. Pelham.
Buses are equipped with
a two-way radio system for
communication between drivers,
_the transportation department,
parents and law enforcement
personnel ." .
Camera and video systems
are mounted in the overhead
front panel near the driver seat.
The camera records to a hard
drive which can be accessed
by the computer system in the
transportation headquarters.
The. two handicapped buses
operated by the county are not
required toha\'e the \ideos\ stem.
"T\\o things account for that."
explains Mr. Pelham. "Those
two buses just don't experience
the discipline problems often
present on regular buses and
they state requires the presence
of an aide to assist the children
and driver."
Other safety features deal
with emergency evacuation.
Any window with a surrounding
rubber gasket can be removed'
from the inside, and the bus roof
has air circulation hatches that
can be removed to free trapped
Florida's Department of
Education requires every bus
carrying children undergo an in-
depth 60-point inspection once
every 30 days.
The inspection is divided

into main categories: Inside and
outside, engine compartment.
undercarriage, lubrication and
maintenance and road test.
According to Mr. Pelham, every
inch of the bus is put under
"We check even thing." says
Mr. Pelharn. "Hoses, lines,
wiring, bolts, filters, seats,
brakes, gauges. lights if it's part
of the bus, then it's checked."
Two-three buses are inspected
daily from 9:00 am to 1:00 p.m.
- the window of time when they)
are typically idle between four
daily routes.
Brand new buses '-are put
through an initial inspection
also. If thev arrive 'from the.
manufacturer and don't meet
code requirements, they don't
go on the road.
Also different on the newer
buses is a fuel system designed
to use' an ultra-low sulphur
diesel fuel.
The .newer buses are
advantageous for their highly
developed child-safety features,
but have one disadvantage the
'undercarriage isn't as rugged as
those in the older buses.
With the preponderance of
dirt roads in rural Baker County,
the older buses stand up to wear
and tear better than the ne\\.
"So there are definite
advantages', to both," says Mr.

AM lacclenn \ \oman was hos-
pitalized o\ e the weekend but is
expected to reco\ er after she was
pulled to safety after languish-
ing in an overturned vehicle on.
a lonely road in the Osceola Na-
tiofial Forest..
A hunter traveling along SR
250 at the Columbia County line
about 8:00 am on October 21
spotted the crashed 2004 Ford
sedan in a thick stand of under-
growth about 25 yards from the
paved roadway.
The motorist, who left the
scene while police and rescue
workers freed Laura Beth Thom-
as, 20, was not identified.
Based on a time line estab-
lished by friends she had dropped
off about 11:45 the previous
evening, authorities believe Ms.
Thomas had the accident about
midnight or shortly after.
That means she lay pinned
in the wreckage for nearly nine
hours, Sgt. Michael Crews of the
sheriff's department said, with
her legs partially out a rear pas-
senger window. The top of the
vehicle was severed by rescue
workers to free her.
"I don't know how she made
it laying there and losing so
much blood, but she did," said
Sgt. Crews, who speculated Ms.
Thomas failed to turn south on
CR 229 after dropping off two
The unidentified motorist told
police he noticed mashed-down
foliage on the roadside when he
passed it that morning, then spot-
ted a portion of the Ford before
calling 911.
Trooper K.M. Boatwright Jr.
of the Highway Patrol said the
westbound vehicle went out of
control on a long curve, then
flipped three times after striking
some trees on the right-of-way.
Initially, police thought an-
other person may have been with
Ms. Thomas and left the scene.A
search of the immediate area by
FHP, wildlife officers, a prison
canine team and US Forest Ser-
vice turned up Iothing.
Sgt. Crews said several.blood-
stains were found on the pave-
ment nearby, and a grassy spot
had two indentations suggest-
ing a bleeding person sat or laid
down there.
A limb the approximate size
of a pool stick bearing blood-
stains was also found close to the
After the unfruitful search, au-

thorities speculate the blood and
tracking ma\ have come from a
deer injured b ,the Thomas se-
hicle or another one.
Ms. Thomas wag disoriented
and unable to spread much light
on the time or cause of the acci-
dent, nor give an explanation for
blood outside the Ford.
Trooper Boatright's report
said Ms. Thomas was not re-
strained by seat or shoulder belts
when found. He also noted there
was no way to determine if she
was driving or a passenger.

Guest speaker Mary Finley,
home economics teacher \\ho
taught man) members of the
class, gave a warm presentation
regarding her y eats at the
"It's : funny," she recalled.
"The girls \\ho took my class
alh a. s complained about having
to clean the stove. The boys
ne\er did. they just cleaned it."
Ms. Finley recounted how
one student was perperuall. late
to her class. It seems Tommnc
Johns could never get up quite
early enough and alh al s came
dragging in at the end. Ms.
Finley finally called his mother
because he was failing due to
absence. '"That took care of
that," said Ms. Finley.
She also laughing\ told of
Naomi Roberson's habit of
chewing gum and raring back in
her chair, punishable by having
to sweep the floor.
"Naomi -swept that floor
nearly every day," she said.
As the evening wound
down, Sandra Anderson shared
an inspirational parable and
deceased' classmates were
remembered..The happy group
of friends then greatly enjoyed
the music of, Gentleman Josie
who sang 1950s tunes such as El
Paso and White Sports Coat by
'Marty Robbins and He'll Have"

winding steps of the Victorian

During the bye week, Baker
High football coach Bobby Johns
candidly assessed the progress
his team has made this season
and how far it still has to go to
meet his expectations.
The Wildcats will face Bishop
Kenny Friday in a district match-
up. Both teams- are out of the
playoff picture, but will be play-
ing for pride.
"Ifyou look at the early games
of the season, say Middleburg
or WVest Nassau,. it's clear that
we've made a lot of progress,"
said Johns. "We \ weren't a very
good football team at the start of
the season."
Johns sees the team making
gains Iw eek-b\ -week. but there
is still a lot of work to do, par-
ticularly on the mental side of thle
"We are still making a lot of
mental mistakes that are costing
us ballgames." said the first-year
Johns looked at the losses to
Raines, Jackson and Su\% annee
Counts and blamed them on
mental errors. In each game, the
team \"as close to victory, only
to have key drives go awry due
to fumbles, poor clock manage-
ment or missed assignments. For
a coach who preaches fundamen-
tals, that can be frustrating.
"You can see that we go into
games hoping to win, but not ex-
pecting to % in." said Johns. "It's
as if we're waiting for something
bad to happen."
According to Coach Johns,
good teams enter a game know -
ing they will win, and not letting
anything stand in their way.'
"In every game you'll have
times when things aren't going
: yOr way, and you have to over-
' come them to \in."
At this point the Wildcats
haven't made the leap of faith to,
accomplish that.
Johns used the example of a
regular season win over Vernon

Bishop Kenny here for home

after Suwannee dashes district

Press Sports
Live Oak seems to be the place
where hopes of a playoff slot go
to die. The Baker High Wildcats.
saw their hopes at a playoff shot
destroyed when they entered the
confines of the Suwannee Coun-
ty High football field a 'couple of
weeks ago.
This past weekend, the Wild-
cats' homecoming opponent
Bishop Kenny suffered the same
indignity. The Crusadeis were 1-
1 in district play going in to the
game, and hoped a win would
propel them another step closer
to a possible though improb-,
able pldvoff slot.
But Suwannee, which started
the season in miserable fashion
with a 1-5 record,' used its home
field advantage to craft an excit-
ing 21-17 % victory over the Cru-
saders. The win left the Bulldogs
with a mathematical chance at
the playoffs and Kenny 'gasping
for air. -
The loss was a complete re-
versal of BK's previous week's
remarkable 40-34, 'ictory over
the Raines Vikings. In that game.,
the Crusaders rode the arm and
quick feet of qUarterback Alike
Stukel to victory.
Stukel "is a very dangerous
quarterback, and stopping him
will be job one for the Wildcats
on Friday night. Stukel is a threat
throw ing the ball. but perhaps an
even bigger threat running the
option. When he decides to run.
Stukel has the speed and durabil-
ity of a tailback.

In the first half of the Suwan-
nee game, Stukel was a one man
wrecking crew. He ran the ball
eight times for 108 yards and.
threw eight times for 68 yards.
Kenny went up 17-7 and looked
in complete control of the game.
But Suwannee made adjust-
ments that the Wildcats will look
at very carefully, loading the line
w ith size, and the game swung to
the Bulldogs' fav or. Srukel could
only complete 2 of 4 passes. and
run for 27 \ards in the second
