77th Year, Vol. 30 Thursday, November 16, 2006 Macclenny, Florida 500
A co-defendant charged in
the stabbing death of a Cuyler
man back in August entered a
not guilty plea in circuit court
this week to fashioning sharp
"shank" knives while in-custody
at county jail.
According to a statement by a
fellow inmate in early October,
Stephen V. Arnold, 51, of Sand-
erson said he intended to use the
knives to take a jail employee
hostage and gain his freedom.
According to witness and infor-
mant William Mack Cordle, 42,
'I've killed once so I'll
kill again. What have I
got to lose?' -quote by
Stephen V. Arnold
of Glen St. Mary, Mr. Arnold
said he'd kill if he had to.
"I've killed once so I'll kill
again. What have I got to lose?"
Mr. Cordle quoted Mr. Arnold as
say ing. The fellow inmate made
the claim during an interview
Oct. 7 with Sgt. Adam Faircloth
of the sheriff's department.
Mr. Arnold and co-defen-
dant Melinda Wilson, 48, also
of Sanderson. were indicted for
first-degree murder by a grand
jury on August 31 in the death
of Dorsev Bennett on August 12.

Lt. Fi ne said one of the piec-
es of sharpened metal was found
near a television in F-dorm where
the inmate had been staying. Two
other "shanks" made from metal
affixed to broken-off toothbrush-
es were found in a light fixture in
the shower room.
A box-style fan in the dorm
was the source of the metal, and
it was damaged in the process, as
was the light fixture, according
to the incident report. It indicates

Mr. Cordle is being held on a
charge of possession of a weap-

record in Baker County.
Inmate Arnold first told Sgt.
Faircloth that Mr. Cordle was
making the knives for a trusty in-,
mate to "set up" another jail oc-
cupant, but could'not recall key
details of the arrangement.

In young children, tumors tend to develop at the base of the brain.
If the tumor is non-malignant, the cells usually don't spread to other
parts of the brain or spinal cord. Recurrence of ependymoma tumors
After surgery, the patient's motor skills are compromised and bal-
ance is a big problem for a while. Ethan's first surgery was successful,
but recovery was difficult. Ethan remained healthy for three years.
He then developed frequent headaches in August 2003 and exami-
nation revealed a second tumor developing in the same location at the
base of the skull. Surgery was again performed and the tumor, luck-
ily, had not spread to any other area.
"His recovery has gone so much quicker this time," said Ethan's
mother, Brook Arnold. "The surgery went fine it's getting him back
on his feet that's the hard part."

Councilman Hays likewise
said he would have cast a no

Ms. Arnold credits a team of
doctors at Shands in Gainesville,
especially neurosurgeon David-
Pincus, for the success of the
surgery. She especially appreci-
ates the personal manner of the
doctors and their willingness to
spend time talking with the rela-
tives and explaining the details.

Ethan, who wants to be a po-
liceman when he grows up, is
enthusiastically using his brand
new customized wheel chair
provided by Medicaid until he
regains all of his mobility. Dis-
tance is the issue for Ethan at the
moment. It's hard to stand and
keep balanced for prolonged pe-
riods. He uses a walker for short
distances and his bright metallic
green chair for extended travel.

Ethan's experience has been
a challenge for his mom, but she
has found her own way to cope.
She read extensively about the
rare cancer and found much in-
formation that was dishearten-
ing. She made the decision to be
realistic, but not to live in a neg-
ative world. She pays attention
only to the important facts and
lets the rest go.
"It's my job to maintain hope
for my child," says the attrac-
tive, dark-haired Ms. Arnold.
"And no one but God is ulti-
mately in control."

of the Make A Wish Foundation

He hasn't yet decided what that
dream will be, but someone has

charged with. fleeing and with
criminal mischief for damaging
property at a residence off CR
The youth surrendered af-

pickup into a private driveway
off Ivy St. Sgt. Adam Faircloth
had been pursuing the boy after
he received a vehicle description
following the property damage
incident late on November 9.
Theresa Finley said the pick-
up drove through a fence in her
front yard, causing $250 dam-

followed it and later alerted the
officer, who located the suspect

Sgt. Faircloth said he then
chased the pickup through the

When queried as to why he
ran, the youth told Sgt. Faircloth,

The Baker County sheriff's'
department last week filed a
criminal complaint against a
Lawtey, Fla. contractor who it
alleges failed to make good on a
deal to repair damage done by a
police cruiser in April, 2004.
The complaint names Timo-
thy Williams, 39, owner of Sim-
plified Builders, who cashed an
$800 check in August of that year
shortly after it was issued by the
department. It was intended to

The report by Lt. Chuck Bran-

son contacted Mr. Williams "on
numerous occasions over the
past two years with no success."
The department also prevailed
on Agent Chris Webster of FDLE
to intercede. Mr. Webster is an
acquaintance of the. contractor
and had no success either.
The complaint for grand theft
was forwarded November 8 to

threatened to picket the funeral
of Army Cpl. Isaiah Calloway,
a Jacksonville native killed Oct.
30 in Afghanistan.

CAMP VICTORY, Iraq-I've
said many times: we in America
don't appreciate just how good
we have it.
When you see how people
live over here, you realize that
just because you're paying some
ungodly amount of money for a
gallon of gas to go into your gas-
guzzling SUV or you have poor
Internet connectivity or poor
reception on your cell phone, it
could always be worse.
We as soldiers are not immune
to sniveling about our quality of
life, but we, too, have it pretty
This week we held a cere-
mony for Veteran's Day. It was
probably not what most people
would consider a ceremony.
We gathered in the foyer of our
building, someone sang the Na-
tional Anthem, somebody else
said a prayer, we had a brief
speech and sang the Army Song.
Then we went back to work.
When we went to chow lat-
er, the DFAC people had a big
Veteran's Day cake laid out with
chocolate Easter bunnies all
around it. I haven't quite picked
up on the connection.
Despite our low key celebra-
tion, Veteran's Day is still a sig-
nificant event for us. A week ago,
our unit was presented combat
patches to wear on our uniforms.
For some of us it was the second,
third or even fourth patches we
have earned. But for the others,"
it signified that they had "paid
their dues" and you could sense
an added measure of pride as in-
dividuals checked and rechecked
the triangular piece of cloth dis-
played on their right sleeve.
Another thing that really made
this Veteran's Day special was a
ceremony held at the al Faw pal-
ace where 75 soldiers became
United States citizens. They
ranged in age from 19 to 36, and
came from all around the globe.
More than 22,000 service
rates homosexuality, adultery,
divorce and abortion.
That is why the group pickets
military funerals. It claims that
soldiers who die in Iraq and Af-
ghanistan, who are sacrificing
their lives to protect the freedom
and liberty that ironically, the
members of Westboro Church
enjoy, have angered God. They
get what they deserve and are
currently residing in hell for it.
/. They claim also, that pick-
eting the funerals of these sol-
diers is a way to warn funeral at-
tendees of their own inevitable
doom, lest they repent:.
Across the nation, people are
appalled at the beliefs and ac-
tions of the We-tboro Church,
which believes the notion that
God is merciful and loving to-
ward all creation is a satanic
myth. For the past 15 years the
church claims to have been, in
its own words "rejoicing at the
works of a sovereign, almighty

penalty of $1,000 fines and jail
sentences of up to one year.
Westboro Church's website
backs up its stance that God
hates America and individual
people by amassing numerous
scriptural references (and there
are many). Yet, it fails to give
equal weight to the abounding
references that speak of forgive-
ness, redemption, transforma-
tion and healing.

I find it ironic that Westboro's
entire message seems to be driv-
en by scorn and hate. Through-
out biblical history, the Israel-
ites, by all accounts, were an
imperfect people and had to be

I look at it this way. If the God
that Christians acknowledge is
powerful enough to bring the
universe into existence with a
few words, then humanity, re-
gardless of the depths to which
it might sink, is redeemable by
that same God.

On November 9 I1 had the privilege and honor to be a guest at Mac-

display of patriotism was performed by the third grade classes under
the direction of Kinita Bishop.
Mrs. Bishop and her volunteers do a wonderful job teaching chil-
dren just what it means to be an American, and to show gratitude and
appreciation to the men and women who have served and are serving

wind of change swept through
the country since Newt Gingrich
and the Republicans brought
the "Contract With America" to
Washington in 1994. Whatever
happened to that?
Now it's the Democrats' turn.
I love American history and
I'm writing this column on a
computer. What do the two have
in common with last week's
election? I'll tell you.
Every dozen or so years this
country, like a computer, likes to
restart itself. The country wants
to clear its head every now and
It's been 12 years since the
Republicans took Congress. Be-
fore that, the Democrats had it
for about that long. What tends
to happen after eight or ten years
is the party in power gets arro-
gant and stops governing and the
country gets fed up with them. It
doesn't always take that long, but
it rarely lasts longer than that.
It was getting too easy to take
pot shots at Mark Foley and Don-
ald Rumsfeld. Now that Rums-
feld has gone I'll have to work
for my money. He could always
be counted on for analogies to a
Chief among these new power
brokers will be Nancy Pelosi, a
congresswoman from California
who is poised to become the first
female Speaker of the House.
While Rumsfeld was a pit bull,
Pelosi is like one of those yap-
py little dogs that runs around
your ankles when you walk into
somebody's house. You know
the kind of dog I mean the irri-
tating kind that you secretly kick
under the sofa when their owner
I have this feeling President
Bush would like nothing better
than to kick Nancy Pelosi under
the sofa. But I think she'll be bit-
ing at his ankles for a while be-
fore he gets the chance.
Speaking of the Prez, of
course, I still have President Bush
and Vice President Cheney. They
aren't quite as much fun as Bill
Clinton and Al Gore, but they're
Clinton and Gore were the Ab-
bot and Costello of politics. Clin-
ton would do something flam-
boyant and ridiculous and Gore
could be counted on to shake his
head and say something nobody
paid any attention to in the least.
This administration is more
like Laurel and Hardy. President
Bush is Stan Laurel who always

Father Time'living up to his name
After years with circuit judges employing "swinging door" sentenc-
ings that often sent repeat probation violators back home, Judge David
Glant has recently been living up to his nickname "Father Time."
A tally by the Clerk of Courts office revealed six defendants in Septem-
ber going to prison for a total of 15 years and eight months.
The longest sentence was five years, the first phase of penalties for a
probation violator involved in a fatal traffic accident. The shortest was a
year and a half.
Things got a bit busier in October when 15 defendants were sent off
for a total of 61 years, eight months and three days. The longest sentence
was 20 years to a chronic probation violator who is only 21 years old. The
shortest sentence was a year and a day. Terms of less than one year are
served at county jail.
Judge Glant, who in the past has been vocal about his preference to sit
on the criminal bench in Baker County e% en though he lives more than an
hour a\v ay, \\ ill be re-assigned in January as part of the regular rotation.
He \\ ill be replaced by Judge Phyllis Rosier of Starke, recently appointed
to the bench. She has been handling ci6 il court in recent months.

"A good motivator will try
virtually anything ethically and
morally acceptable to reach his

Ruise added that motivators
aren't perfect and make a lot of
mistakes, but that it is worth the
effort because when a player is
properly motivated he becomes
a better overall player.
"In the final analysis, not try-

more serious mistake than com-

tivate athletes. You can always
learn from your mistakes as long
as those mistakes result from an
honest effort to improve yourself

Darryl Register is president of the Baker County Farm Bureau. He owns D&D Dairy in Glen St.
Mary. The Baker County Farm Bureau is hosting a Farm-City Lunch next week to recognize agricul-
tural contributions in Baker County and the strong partnership that exists between rural producers
and urban consumers. Agriculture is an important part of the economy in Baker County and the state
of Florida. As the number two industry in the state, agriculture creates jobs and provides billions of
dollars to the economy. In Baker County, there are 204 farms on 18,000 acres. Market sales totaled
about $25 million in 2002. Neither the farm nor the city can exist in isolation. Instead, the interde-
pendence of the two creates jobs, products, markets and relationships that make our economy and
nation strong. Join with us in recognizing Baker County agricultural producers and allied industries
and the contributions they make to the economy.

Sometimes a coach tries to be
too smart for his own good.

television. I watched the Gator
game from start to finish, which
is something I don't normally do
since I'm not a Florida fan.
As I watched the game, I be-
came more and more convinced
that Urban Meyer is too con-
cerned with style points. Again
and again, he would get into
scoring position through hard
1work and bread and butter plays,
then try to get too tricky.
Instead of pushing the ball up
the gut with Deshawn W\nn or
loss a little floater into the comer
to Bubba Caldw ell, he'd try a re-
verse or an end around and wind
up losing the edge.
It was as if he was try ing to
prove that he was smarter than
Ste\ e Spurrier. I'\e got news for
you, Urban. You aren't smarter
than "the Old Ball Coach." You
just have better athletes. So, use
your better athletes and let that
be that. Jarvis NMoss proved that
by blocking two field goals and

The Gators have been strug-

the BCS poll. All my friends are
Gator fans and they do nothing
but complain. As a Seminole
fan, I've got plenty to complain
about. I'd be more than happy to
have one loss and in the race for
the national title.
But watching the Gators as a
neutral it seems plain to me they
are moving a\%ay from what they
are best at. They have an excel-
lent running back who can get
six to eight yards up the middle
on every play. But Nle\er \\ants
