Tips for selling by owner, part one

(From Page 1)
actually hired me."
All my free time is now
spent answering the phone
and showing the house.
It is true that if your mar-
keting is going well and
people are aware that the
home is for sale, then they
won't see any reason not to
call right in the middle of the
best parts of Survivor, Lost,
and 24. Unfortunately, sell-
ing real estate is a full-time
job. .Even more unfortu-
nately is that you probably
already have two full-time
jobs raising your family
and, of course, your full-time
A good trick here is to
never allow anyone to see'
the home on the same day
that they call about it. Most
people who call based on
the sign or local advertising

will be close enough to the
houseto be ableto come over
to see it right now. That's
what they'll want to do, too.
This leads to non-stop mad
dashes around the house to
get it ready for anyone and
everyone. Remember that
most of the people who see
it probably won't be able to
afford it. So, set your show-
ing appointments on a given
couple of nights, back to
back if possible.
Not only will this technique
give you time to prepare for
showings in advance, but
it will allow you to let them
see that they are not the
only ones interested in the
home. This will likely dis-
courage them from trying
to make absurdly low offers
if they actually want the
house. Competition is great
and multiple offer situations

(ARA) If your family has to wait in line
to take a shower, or if you're storing pots
and pans in the laundry room due to lack
of cabinet space, it could be time to con-
sider a home remodeling project. Not
only will an updated space make your
house more pleasant for you and your
family, it can pay off in higher
resale value. P
To find out if your project
will add to the resale value of
your home, take stock,of other
houses in your neighborhood.
Have many of them been up-
graded in the past few years?
If your house is the only one
around without a finished base-
ment, that would be a good
project to consider. If everyone
on the block has added a bath-
room or upgraded their master
suite, these projects would pay
off as well, On the other hand,
you may not want to price your
house out of the market by add-
ing a third or fourth garage if
that's not the standard in your

Remodeling magazine con-
ducts an annual survey that
compares construction costs
with resale values. Over the
past four years, bathroom and
kitchen remodeling have con-
sistently shown good returns on
investment. In 2005, a kitchen
remodel that included updating .
cabinet fronts; replacing the
oven, stove, sink and faucet;
adding new paint or wall cov-
erings; and replacing existing .
flooring recouped 98.5 percent
of the job cost at resale time as a na-
tional average. In the East and West, the
numbers were even higher, at 100.9 per-
cent and 112.3 percent respectively.
Bathroom remodels pay off even bet-
ter. Updating a bathroom that is 25
years old with new fixtures, tub, and toi-
let; adding new tile, a solid surface van-
ity counter, ceramic floor and wallpaper
recoups on average 102.2 percent.
Of course, you won't want to tackle a
home improvement project solely for the

especially if you intend to stay put for a
while. A remodel can contribute to a bet-
ter quality of living for your family while
your house increases in value. "Choose
an improvement that makes sense for
you and your family and one that you can
afford," says Maxine Sweet, vice presi-

dent of public education for Experian, a
global information solutions company.
To decide if a home remodeling project
is right for you, make a list of features
that you would like in the room to be
renovated, taking into account how you'
and your family use the space. Consider
traffic patterns, lighting and special fea-
tures you'd like, such as a wet bar or
walk-in shower.
Next, figure out how much you can
spend on the project. You might want to
consider taking out a home equity loan
to finance the remodel. Because the

loan is secured by your home,,;it will like-
ly have a lower annual percentage rate,
and you may get, some tax breaks, too.
The amount you can borrow is limited by
the equity you have in your home. Other
factors that may influence the amount
you can borrow include your credit his-
tory, income and current finan-
cial responsibilities., Also, be
sure to have a plan for how you
will repay the loan. You don't
want to put your home at risk
br add too much stress to the
family budget.
To make sure your financing
is ready when you are, visit a
credit reportingcompany online
such as www.experian.com to
: quickly and easily access your
credit report. "If you notice
o, anything questionable, such as
accounts you don't recognize,
r"i^ or payment disputes, deal with
R those issues before applying
for a home equity loan," says
Sweet. "It can also be helpful
to have your credit score which
will tell you specifically the fac-
tors in your credit history that
could be considered risky by
- ,, ,.' lenders."
Finally, get bids from sev-
eral contractors to see how
your budget and the cost of

workers for recommendations,
or ask your lender if they're
familiar with the contractors
you're considering. Another
great way to check out a com-
pany is SmartBusinessRe-
ports, also available through Experian
at www.experian.com. These business
credit reports provide consumers with
background information, comprehensive
financial information and credit risk facts
about the business they are considering
using in an easy-to-read, online format.
As with any big project, you'll need
to be flexible and not let the inevitable
glitches get in the way of the big picture
- when you're done, you'll have a beauti-
ful new space for you and your family to
enjoy for years to come.

A 17-year-old male suspect

iff's Office
the arrest
of Correy
Brady late
in the af-
temoon of Correy Brady
27 following an interview at po-
lice headquarters downtown. Ac-
cording to the arrest report, Mr.
Brady confessed to involvement
in the incident outside the Wash-
ington Heights Convenience
Store that morning.
He and another suspect who
has yet to be arrested conspired
to rob Michael Shane Crawford
on a sidewalk outside the store
entrance, and Mr. Brady told
police his role was to rifle the
pants pockets while his accom-
plice held the victim at bay with
a semi-automatic pistol.
The suspect told investigators
Mr. Crawford, 34 and the father
of four, was shot when he resist-
ed by pushing him away. Wit-
nesses inside the store told police
they saw the victim stumble into
the front door. He died there of a
single bullet to the head.
The report does not indicate if
the suspects got money or other
valuables from the victim before
they took off running. Police
searched nearby apartments later
that day, and evacuated some of
them before coming up dry in the

A Glen St. Mary husband
and wife say they have reason
to believe a fire that destroyed
their rented home the afternoon
of Christmas Eve day may have
been arson motivated by racial
The state fire marshal's office
was called to the scene that after-
noon when local firefighters sus-
pected it was deliberately set, and
results from chemical analysis of
the interior are not expected for
several weeks.
For Stanley and Robin Green,
events the past two months in
that south Glen neighborhood
- mostly verbal taunts made
under cover of darkness sug-
gest somebody didn't want them
The Greens, who live there
with children and an in-law, are
Glen St. Mary has tradition-
ally been all white that is until
about four years ago when the
Greens took up residence in a
block house on the northeast cor-
ner of CR 125 and Andrews St.
"We never had trouble un-
til about two months ago, and
then things started happening,"
said Ms. Green, who along with
her family has been staying in
two rooms at the Macclenny
ELrl',ioJ-gc ,.ince i-e fire.
Both she and one of her chil-
dren have been called "nigger"
and her son-in-law once spotted

two persons he believed to be
young, white males in the side
yard. It was dark and he didn't
get a clear view.
"We have beer bottles in the
front yard, our mailbox was
tampered with and the night of
the Christmas Parade (in Mac-
clenny) two white males were
out on the sidewalk. They never
said anything but they were just
there," recalls Ms. Stanley.
She complained only once, to
Deputy Ben Anderson when he
showed up on a rescue call at a
Margaretta church. She told him
some of her outdoor Christmas
ornaments were vandalized and
the officer advised to get a physi-
cal description if it happened
"Somebody cut my (inflat-
able) lawn decorations so we de-
cided not to put them back up."
County Fire Chief Richard
Dolan said he suspected almost
immediately the Christmas Eve
fire was arson, mostly because it
appeared to have started simul-
taneously in several parts of the
beige block house. State inspec-
tor Jerry Baker was summoned
and the charred interior was even
sniffed out by a trained dog.
Ms. Stanley said a gas can
was stored on the front porch
and one uin the back near a la\\ n
mower. The one on the front was
intact and the other disappeared
that day.

Unidentified firefighter callsfor assistance at front door of burning Glen home.

She suspects the house was
searched for valuables that
morning when the Stanleys were
away at a Christmas Eve church
service. A coin jar in plain sight
melted but the money inside was
gone. Another one hidden in a
cabinet still had change in it.
Mr. Baker of the Fire Mar-
shal's office said arson tests could
be dela\ ed a few da;i s because of
the holiday and the investigation
results will be discussed with the
Baker County sheriff's depart-

ment. If it is arson as suspected,
and racially motivated, the state
will turn its results over to the
FBI as a civil rights violation.
Sheriff's investigator Steve
Harvey, who was assigned the
case, says he has learned little as
of early this week and awaits the
arson test results.
The Stanleys say they'll be
waiting to hear, and Ms Stanle.\
said a neighbor mentioned the

The Board of County Com-
missioners lined up public hear-.
ings on January 16 for several
land use and zoning requests, in-
cluding one for a PUD (planned
unit development) on 54 acres off
Woodlawn Road for a 132-home
subdivision to be called Lakes at
The application filed by North
Florida Heritage Group and Jef-
frey Cook reiterates an earlier
commitment for connection to
Macclenny's sewer and water
system, turning lanes off narrow
and sometimes busy Woodlawn
Road west of SR 121 and cul-de-
sac turnarounds large enough to
accommodate school buses.
Back in September, the com-
mission with one dissenting vote
approved a land use change for
Woodlawn Lakes after adverse
comments from nearby residents
off Dupree Road to the west
about added traffic congestion
and other woes. North Florida
Heritage already assured both
state and county agencies it will
pay for paving and other infra-
structure on the tract in addition
to bringing in city utilities.
The developer also agreed
to improvements on Woodlawn
Road, commonly called "Snake
Road" because of sharp turns
before it heads \\est toward SR
125 in a straight line. The com-

Grass roots effort for pregnancy resource center here

Search on for location afierfirstyear effortyields $180,000 in seed money

Press Staff
Macclenny residents Dayle
Milton and Lori Dugan, both
volunteers with First Coast
Women's Services in Jackson-
ville, are working hard to help
raise awareness for the need of
a pregnancy resource center for
Baker County.
For the last year, the two vol-
unteers have actively been visit-
ing churches and any other in-
terested organizations to deliver
their message for the need of a
center and the wide range of free
services it will offer.
A steering committee was
founded last year at Raiford
Road Baptist Church and ac-
cording to FCWS Executive
Director Mary Hubbard, Some
$180,000 has already been col-
lected through the organization's
fund raising efforts like the The
Baby Bottle Boomerang.
Since the start-up 'goal of
$150,000 has been met, FCWS
will now begin the process of
actively seeking a location for
its Baker County center.
According to Ms. Hubbard,
an unplanned pregnancy can
raise many unanswered ques-
tions for a women such as:
Am I really pregnant?
Who can I talk to in
Can I/should I keep the
Should I consider
How do I tell my family?
Where do I obtain good
medical care?
What about finances?
The purpose behind First
Coast Women's Services and its
resource centers is to empower

Volunteer counselors Dayle Milton (1) and Lori Dugan (r) with Mary Hubbard, Executive Director of First Coast Women's Ser-
vices in Jacksonville. The ladies hold baby bottle 'piggy banks', which are passed out to local area churches and other organiza-
tions as part of a fund raising campaign to establish a satellite pregnancy resource center in Baker County.

women to make informed choic-
es about their pregnancy.
Like the main locations in
Jacksonville, the Baker County
location will offer a full range of
free services such as pregnancy
testing, ultrasound confirmation,
doctor referral and counseling.
Clients will have access to in-
formation regarding pregnancy
options such as adoption. Post-
abortion healing and other sup-
port services will be offered as
well as opportunities to acquire
maternity and baby supplies.

Trained volunteer counsel-
ors and appropriate medical per-
sonnel will be on hand to assist
clients with all their needs and
First Coast Women's Servic-
es does not perform abortions
or make abortion referrals, but
does recognize a woman's right
to terminate an unwanted preg-
nancy as granted by the US Su-
preme Court.
What the faith-based orga-
nization does instead is give a
woman information and statis-

tics about abortion procedures
which she may be totally un-
aware of.
Based on this information,
women may decide to carry
their baby full term.
"We're not there to judge or
,pressure a woman in any way -
the choice is her's alone," said
Ms. Milton.
Ms. Dugan agrees. "It's of-
ten been my experience that the
mind of a woman or a couple
considering termination often

changes after considering all op-
tions and especially after view-
ing an ultrasound of the baby."
The center will offer sup-
port services and counseling for
women suffering from the emo-
tional aftermath of an abortion.
Clients participate in programs
such as Forever Forgiven, which
helps women deal with unre-
solved guilt, a common result of
pregnancy termination.
Men often have questions
and concerns and the center will
be open to them also.
"Sometimes men feel left out
of the decision making process,
so we encourage men to take ad-
vantage of our services too, said
Ms. Hubbard. We have male
counselors in our Jacksonville
locations and hope to provide
them in Baker County also."
There are interactive pro-
grams such as The Hope Pro-
gram, which teaches parenting
skills. Clients attend classes and
have workbooks and assign-
ments that help them develop a
foundation for their future role
as a parent.
As a volunteer, Ms. Dugan
has found her involvement with
the center to be very affirming.
"Pregnancy affects every-
one, in every walk of life. If I
can do anything to help, I feel

Law Enforcementfood/toy drive
Sergeants Brad Harvey and Jody Dyal helped the Baker County Sheriff's Depart-
ment conduct a Christmas food and toy drive, to benefit twenty-two Baker County
families. Sixteen department teams collected 2300 food items and over 300 toys
which were made- into holiday gift boxes fitting the needs of individual'families.
Supervised trustee inmates even got into the holiday spirit by helping to distribute
boxes at the Sheriff's headquarters. For families without transportation, deputies
delivered boxes right to their door. Jacksonville's Channel 4 News was on hand to
film the action.

Skewers credit report

A Macclenny man may have
been defrauded by an ex-girl-
friend in Virginia when she used
his name on a telephone service
account that remains unpaid.
Gregory Jones, 37, contact-
ed the sheriff's department at
the behest of Verizon Virginia,
which lists him as owing $738
in past due charges dating back
to March, 2005. The address on
the account in Norfolk was at
one time that of the girlfriend

and mother of Mr. Jones' child,
he told police. She now lives in
Mr. Jones was informed of the
debt when he applied for a ve-
hicle loan after Christmas and it
appeared on his credit report.
Verizon advised Mr. Jones to
report the situation to the sher-
iff's department to get the ad-
verse finding removed from the
credit report.

Zoning hearings scheduled...

(From page 1)

mitments by Heritage and its
principal Jeffrey Cook of Earth-
works of Northeast Florida in
Macclenny came after a master
plan underwent review by the
Department of Community Af-
fairs in Tallahassee.
The present plan calls for four
units per acre, but that along with
other rezoning and land use pro-
posals will be considered later.
The hearing this month is on the
PUD only, akin to a master plan.
The property is currently zoned
agriculture 7.5, which means one
dwelling for every 7.5 acres.
The proposal was approved
last month by the county's De-
velopment Review Committee.
Hearings will be held the
same afternoon on smaller zon-
ing changes to allow added
structures. Two are proposed
by George Knabb Jr. involving
comparable 1.08 acres off Es-
tates Road near the entrance to
Macclenny II off SR 121. The
request is for RC.5 zoning to al-
low duplexes on each tract.
A third petition by Gene
Burnsed seeks rezoning of 4.54
acres off CR 127 near Baxter so
he can deed it to a son for a mo-
bile or permanent home.
In other business the evening
of January 2 during a session
that lasted about 50 minutes, the
county board approved a contract
with the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs to spend a $750,000
grant this budget year on hous-
ing for low-income .residents.
An additional $250,000 has been
awarded for housing rehab via
the SHIP grant program.

Following a lengthy presenta-
tion by Bridget Merill of Enter-
prise Florida (the former Depart-
ment of Commerce), the board
unanimously included Baker in
the running for a mega-industrial
site in the 14-county Rural Area
of Critical Economic Concern,
one of three in Florida.
The agreement memorandum
signed this week brings Baker
County into the running in what
is termed a Rural Catalyst Proj-
ect, selection of prime industrial
sites that the state will hype as
ideal for large industries.
If Baker County is not chosen
as a "rainmaker" location one
whose development' will spur
growth in neighboring counties
as well, it will share in a portion
of revenues generated by the two
mega-sites chosen in the North
Central region.
That was the feature that at-
tracted Ginger Barber, execu-
tive director of the Baker County
Development Commission. She
recommended the board sign
on this week, which it did on a
motion by Commissioner Julie
The county will this year sub-
mit a prime industrial site that
will in turn be evaluated by state
agencies before the two finalists
are selected.
As part of the consent agenda
passed without comment, the
county renewed an annual agree-
ment with Lake Doctors of Win-
ter Springs, Fla. for vegetation
control and other maintenance at
the Little St. Marys River Park

clenny and Glen St. Mary. The
firm raised its quarterly fee $10

thusly: "Not since the civil War

The travesties of the Viet-
nam War and the complex web
of the Watergate political scan-
dals daily dominated the news
headlines. Nearly every day,
there were protesters gathered
at the White House gates. Pres-
ident Nixon, overwhelmed by
Watergate and threatened with
impeachment, resigned in dis-
grace, the first American presi-
dent to do so.
Ten months earlier, Nixon,
in the first recorded use of the
25th Amendment, appointed
Ford as vice president replacing
,Spiro Agnew, who was forced
out of office for tax evasion and
money laundering stemming
from his tenure as governor of
Acknowledging he had risen
to the office of president with-
out the vote of the people, Ford
asked Americans to confirm him
with their prayers.
After being sworn in
as president, Ford stated:
"My fellow Americans, our long
national nightmare is over."
With his quiet self-confidence
and reputation for honesty, the
country seemed to breathe a
collective sigh of relief as Ford
took the helm and began what
he thought of as "the healing
His first move toward heal-
ing was not what the public ex-
pected. There was widespread
demand that Nixon be held ac-
countable for the turmoil he had
subjected the country to. Ford's
decision to pardon Nixon trig-
gered a backlash of criticism and
resulted in the resignation of his
own press secretary. Many drew
the conclusion that a "deal" had
been struck between Nixon and
Ford backed his decision with
strong personal conviction and
did not waver. Many believe that
decision cost him re-election.
In his memoir, "A Time to
Heal" published in 1978, he re-
flected on his decision to par-
don Nixon, contending an im-
peachament trial would be too
wrenching an ordeal for the al-
ready scandal- weary country to

"unremarkable" by some, but
the late Barry Goldwater once

country could not ask or expect
him to do more. History should
treat him kindly."
I was a young teenager when
the Watergate scandal was in
full swing. Every day when I got
home from school, my mom had
the television tuned to the on-
going political saga. I remem-
ber images of stern looking pol-
iticians as they testified, but the
meaning of the entire ordeal was
over my head.
The one image that did res-
onant with me was of Richard
Nixon's daughter Tricia. The
camera closed in on her tearful
countenance as she stood near
her father during his resigna-
tion. Years passed before I fully
.comprehended the seriousness
of the situation and the difficul-
ty she must have endured under
intense public scrutiny, know-
ing how an entire country want-
ed to crucify her father. Had it
been me, just seeing the pain of
her young face and the defeat
in her bowed shoulders would
have been enough to move me
to grant a pardon.
I can't help but believe that
Gerald Ford was moved by the
Nixon family's pain, because
family meant everything to
Ford, as strong as his love for
his country. When Warren Burg-
er, chief justice of the United
States, administered the oath of
office to Ford in 1974, Ford's
wife Betty stood between them
holding the Bible on which that
oath was sworn.
Of her husband's passing she
has said, "His life was filled with
love of God, his family and his

Saddam s neih bors watched reporting of

execution much like the rest ofus in the states

January 1,2007

CAMP VICTORY, Iraq-2007 came in with us
celebrating pretty much the same way we celebrate
all holidays here and, in fact, at home by getting
together with a few friends, talk-
ing smart and eating way too much
junk food. DESER
The old year went out with a
bang in more ways than one. First, MAJ. BO1
our most infamous neighbor left the
hood for good and everybody from
home was concerned about what effect it would
have on us.
In many ways, our reaction was similar to that of
people everywhere.
We watched reports of the execution of Saddam
Hussein like most of you did on Fox or CNN. We
were, probably,like most of you, happy to get that
chapter behind us. Hopefully the Iraqi people will
also close this chapter and get serious about fixing
their country.
The only differences were we had some people
involved in his transfer from our custody to the
Iraqi government so we got some first-hand reports
and we had to be a little more vigilant because it is
hard to tell the difference between celebratory fire
and hostile fire and from what I've heard, they both
hurt if you get hit.
One question I have is, "What was up with that
noose?" That was the biggest dang rope I think I've
ever seen. The Iraqi people, I guess, want to make
sure when they hang someone, they stay hung. That
and the speed in which they carried out the execu-


tion after the trial might be something we in Amer-
ica could learn.
This New Year's Eve was perhaps more subdued
than other holidays we've had. People seemed to
be a little down. Some of my friends got together
and watched a movie we vote
on what movies to watch at a
Shootch where scavenged lumber
served as a deck.
BY HART When we get together, some-
one always suggests a war movie.
Last night's was Gettysburg but
we voted it down and ended up watching some
sophomoric comedy. Protocol demands, however,
if a movie is really bad, as compared to just normal
bad, we change midway through. That's what we
did last night.
A bit before midnight our time, guys start \ an-
dering off to make calls home. A friend and I went
back to our offices to call home. After we got off the
phone, we started walking back to the "party" when
the base alarm system started blaring, "Incoming...
We scrambled to the bunkers. "Happy New
Year," my buddy said. We waited for the all-clear
signal and then went back to join the other guys.
All of the calls home ended, so we exchanged
holiday greetings, toasted each other with near-beer,
diet soda or water.
"Here's to being with good friends," one guy
"And here's hoping we never have to do it again,"
said another.
Amen, brother.

Shop owner brings T-Bird back to life

Dear Editor:
Back in July, my Dad and I
were involved in a small acci-
dent. We weren't hurt and my
Dad's 1999 T-Bird sustained mi-
nor damage.
The insurance adjuster was
going to total the car and most
people would have been happy
about that. But not Dad.
The T-Bird looked like it had
just rolled out of the showroom
and had 38,000 miles. I took it
to Butch's Paint and Body Shop

in Macclenny and he gave me a
$2300 estimate. The insurance
company still refused that esti-
mate and it wanted to give Dad
$4000 and total the car.
Butch tried talking to the in-
surance people, and this went
on a couple months before Dad
decided to let Butch fix the car
and pay for it himself. Butch told
me he would help Dad get his
money back.
So Butch took pictures before,
during and after the job, and went

with me to see a lawyer. Dad re-
ceived a check for the $2300 re-
pair bill the week of Christmas.
Thanks Butch for the fantastic
job and the extra help with insur-
ance because he didn't think we
were being treated right.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday January 4, 2007 Pap

Arrest for false claim

on prescription pickup

A Macclenny woman faces a
first-degree misdemeanor charge
for allegedly claiming falsely that
two prescriptions were picked up
at CVS Pharmacy by someone
other than her.
Leslie Tomlinson, 29, initially
told Deputy Erik Deloach the
afternoon of December 30 some-
one fraudulently obtained Xanax
and Hydrocodone that had been
prescribed for her.
Store personnel and the dep-
uty retrieved the CVS record
and the signature of the person
who signed for both orders the
morning of December 28. Both
signatures matched that of Ms.
Tomlinson on a military ID, and
a surveillance video also con-
firmed she was the person who
picked them up.
She then admitted to filing the
false report to get more pills be-
cause hers had been stolen sever-
al days prior at a relative's house.
Deputy Deloach noted also that
Ms. Tomlinson had reported the
theft to the sheriff's department.
A sworn complaint was filed
instead of an arrest because the

Man says he

escaped trunk
The sheriff's department is
looking into the bizarre tale of
kidnapping and escape told by a
Jacksonville man who was found
bloodied and walking along In-
terstate 10 near Sanderson on
New Years morning.
Duncan Jackson, 54, said the
severe laceration to his face was
due to being struck by a pistol
earlier that morning when he was
jumped by an unknown black
male at his residence off Walter
Mr. Jackson told police an ex-
girlfriend he identified as Lisa
Fundora, no age or address avail-
able, parked down the street from
his residence about 3:30 am. She
original], telephoned him to
meet-him at a motel in Jackson-
ville, but Mr. Jackson told Depu-
ty Tony Norman he declined and
instead invited Ms. Fundora to
his house where he had Christ-.
mas gifts for her children.
He said he was attacked short-
ly after the girlfriend came inside
his house, and both of them beat
him and bound his hands and
feet with a phone cord. They
then placed him in the trunk of
his 1995 Jaguar and headed west
on 1-10.
He also claims to have over-
heard the girlfriend say they
would drive him to Lake City
and kill him.
Mr. Jackson, at 5'4" and 125,
told the deputy he freed himself
from the cord and was able to
open the car trunk from inside
and jump out when the Jaguar
slowed near the CR 229 exit at
He was bruised in addition to
the facial laceration, said Deputy
Norman. Mr. Jackson was treated

tor David Morgan and a coun-
terpart from Duval County were

accused has an infant child.
In another drug-related arrest,
Vanessa Rigney, 19, of Glen St.
Mary was charged with misde-
meanor marijuana possession
after her vehicle was pulled over
for erratic driving the afternoon
of December 26.
Deputy John Hardin said Ms.
Rigney's car crossed the center-
line three times after he began
following it for failing to stop
at Joan St. and Lowder in south
He stopped the driver on US
90 in west Macclenny and noted
an ash tray with loose tobacco,
which often signals drug activ-
ity. A subsequent search turned
up a baggie of pot between the
front seats.
Glenn Martin, 49, of Sander-
son was jailed for disorderly in-
toxication just before 3:00 am on
December 28 after he refused an
offer from Deputy Curtis Ruise
to drive him to a local motel for
the night.
Mr. Martin, questioned at a
US 90 convenience store follow-
ing a complaint, said he could
not return home because his wife
caught him earlier at a bar with
another woman.. "Just take me to
jail," he suggested to the officer.

Fails to return a truck

A sworn criminal complaint
was filed December 27 against
a Starke, Fla. man for stealing

School board updates policies on January 2

to comply with changes in Florida statutes

Press Staff
New policies as well as nu-
merous minor revisions to exist-
ing Baker County School Board
policies were approved at the
board's January 2 meeting.
The recent state-legislated
changes have resulted in six new
policies for the Baker County
district in the areas of physical
education, psychotropic medica-
tions, information access, whis-
tle blower protection, anti-fraud
and hospitality funds.
Highlights of the new poli-
cies in brief are:
Physical education: the dis-
trict will integrate physical ed-
ucation as an integral part of a
wellness program, consistent
with the standards of the Na-
tional Association for Sport and
Physical Education and the Sun-
shine State Standards. The pro-
gram goes from preK through
grade 12, with activities appro-
priate to grade level and of suffi-
cient intensity to enhance health
Psychotropic medication:
The district will not deny a stu-
dent access to programs or ser-
vices because of parental refusal
to place that student on psycho-
tropic (mood-altering) medic'a-
tion. Teachers, administrators,
other district employees cannot

require, compel or attempt to
compel a parent to administer
psychotropic medication to his
or her child.
Information access: paren-
tal access regarding information
and administration of physical
examinations will be incorpo-
rated into the board approved
Student Services Plan. Parents
will be notified annually at the
beginning the year of the rules
and procedures relating to this
Whistle blower policy:
this is supposed to protect dis-
trict employees and other per-
sons who report violations or
suspected violations of feder-
al, state or local laws, includ-
ing acts of malfeasance, mis-
feasance, gross waste of funds
or neglect of duty. Provisions of
the policy shall not be applica-
ble when an employee or inde-
pendent contractor discloses in-
formation known to be false.
Anti-fraud: fraud, suspected
or observed, or the concealment
of fraud will not be tolerated and
applies to district employees,
outside support organizations,
vendors, contractors, volunteers
and outside agencies. Fraud in-
cludes knowingly misrepresent-
ing the truth or concealment of a
material fact to personally ben-

efit or induce another to act to
his/her detriment.
Hospitality funds: the super-
intendent may authorize expen-
ditures for purposes of promo-
tion, public relations activities
and hospitality for business
guests as deemed appropriately
beneficial to the school district.
Conditions and restrictions of
expenditures will apply.
The revised policy now des-
ignates in all appropriate in-
stances either "legal parent" or
"legal. guardian." The specific
definition for both terms was
not readily available at the time
of this report, but according to
Assistant Superintendant Glen
McKendree, the definitions
have been mandated by Florida
state statute.
In other items, the board ap-
proved a bid by Murray's Con-
tract Hardware in Jacksonville
for replacement cylinders and
The contract will cover a
turn-key system for replacement
cylinders, locks and required in-
stallation for school and other
buildings, excluding the PreK-
Center and Macclenny Elemen-
tary School.
The project is funded by dis-
trict insurance and is estimated
at $60,000.

heft possession charges

A St. George, Ga. man and his
girlfriend were arrested the eve-
ning of December 27 for theft
of a pickup truck from a Jack-
sonville man, and likely theft of
a pressure washer and two guns
from unknown sources.
Sgt. Thomas Dyal of the
sheriff's department said he con-
fronted Joseph Crews, 22, and
Jessica Egido, 22, of Jacksonville
as they walked along CR 139B
near Klein Road west of Glen St.
Mary about 9:17. Police received
a report the two were attempting
to flag down traffic.
Sgt. Dyal said Mr. Crews pro-
duced a .22 rifle he attempted to
conceal behind his back when
the officer approached, and Ms.
Egido was holding a pillow slip
containing ammunition.
The Chevrolet truck was lo-
cated about the same time by
Deputy Darrin Whitaker a mile
north of where the suspects were
being questioned, and Ms. Egido
had a set of keys belonging to
it. The truck, parked on Claude
Harvey Road, had a $300 pres-
sure washer in the bed and a .22
revolver in a door compartment.
Sgt. Dyal's report notes shoe
prints near the truck matched
those of both suspects, and the
owner of the truck told police the
pressure washer and guns were
not his.
In subsequent interviews at

county jail, both suspects admit-
ted stealing the vehicle, and Mr.
Crews, who has a prior burglary
conviction, also admitted steal-
ing the pressure washer. He re-
fused further comment, accord-
ing to the officer, saying "it's our
job to figure out where it was
stolen from." Ms. Egido likewise
refused comment on the other
Mr. Crews admitted both he
and the girlfriend were addicted
to crack cocaine and had been

Both were booked for grand
theft, loitering and Mr. Crews for
carrying a concealed weapon.

In Memory of
Dwight D. Parker, Sr.
2/25/49 12/30/06
Little did we know' that the
Lord was about to call your name,
You were getting tired and a cure
was not to be,
So He cuddled you in his arms
and whispered "come with me, come
With / .o 6..' eyes and broken
hearts, we all watched you slip away,
Although we loved you, God
loved you best.
Your heart stopped beating but
your smile will always be with us.
God broke our family chain just
to prove to us that He will only take
the best.
We miss you everyday of our life.
In life, we loved you.
In death, we do the same.
When I'm sad, I can hear you say,
"It's gonna be okay Marie".

Entertainment Editor
If you're a kid, a teen, or an
adult you'll enjoy Night at the
Museum. It is fun, clever, full of
terrific special effects and witty
writing. In short, it's got an awful
lot to recommend it.
Night at the Museum is one
of the most appealing kid mov-
ies in quite a while. I call it a kid
movie, but trust me, it is a film all
ages can watch and enjoy. With
a PG rating, it is appropriate for
most ages, with just some mildly
intense action to keep away the
youngest kids.
It's a very clever story. Ben
Stiller plays Larry Daley, a di-
vorced dad who just can't seem
to keep a job. His ex-wife tells
him that unless he gets steady
employment he will lose visita-
tion rights with his son, Nick
(Jake Cherry).
He goes to a employment
company run by Stiller's real-
life Mom, Anne Meara. It's a fun
scene, particularly if you know
he's playing opposite his mother.
She sends him to the only job
available, a night security guard
at the Natural History Museum.
The museum is losing money
and its director (Ricky Gervais)
is cutting back on staff. The three
current guards, played by old fa-
vorites Dick Van Dyke, Mickey
Rooney and Bill Cobbs, wel-
come him and give him a list of
"rules" he should follow. After
that he's on his own.
'You've undoubtedly seen the
trailers, so I'm not giving any-
thing away. Everything in the
museum comes alive at night.

game of

Beat Stanton

before trouncing

by Englewood

The Florida First Coast Bas-
ketball Tournament didn't end
exactly the way that the Wildcats
would have hoped. Orange Park
overcame all comers to win the
annual holiday matchup in Glen
St. Mary, while the host Cats
finished fourth after managing
only 25 points in the third place
Orange Park ran its record to
11-1 with the tournament vic-
tory over a surprising Fort White
Indians team. The Raiders won
the most. exciting game of the
tournament with a rousing 84-83
overtime victory over the Wolf-
pack of Wolfson in the semi-fi-
nals on Friday'night.
For the Wildcats the tour-
nament started off poorly and
ended the same way. Their free
throw shooting abandoned them
in the first round Thursday and
they fell to Fort White 89-80 in
It was a game the Wildcats
could have, and probably should
have, won. They battled back
against a stubborn Indian team
that ran out to an eight point lead
at the end of the first period.
The Wildcats weren't in any
mood to lay down and die though,
and they had trimmed the Fort
White lead to 28-24 at intermis-
sion. The Cats were quicker than
the Indians, but had trouble fin-
ishing their offensive plays.
They clawed their way back
into the game with strong second
half play and tied it up at the end
of the half to force the game into
overtime. The mood was tense in
1I ". .

the gym, and the tenseness wore
off on the Wildcats, who had
trouble making a field goal and
even more trouble making free
Fort White, on the other hand,
took control in the overtime pe-
riod, outscoring the Cats 11-4 to
seal the win. Time and again the
Cats were sent to the free throw
line and failed to convert. Fort
White took the win and cruised
into the second round, while
BCHS found itself in the loser's
Thorne Crowley led BCHS
with 17 points and Nate Strachen
had 12. Crowley was hot from
beyond the three point arc, sink-
ing 4 long range bombs. Kyle
Kennedy added a three pointer.
The Cats came back in the
second round, defeating Stanton
Prep 59-54 to push their way into
the third place game. At first, the
game looked anxiously like a re-
peat of Thursday night's match-
up with Fort White.
Stanton came out with the hot
hand and held a 23-18 lead after

the first 10 minutes. But BCHS
woke up in the second period
and ran riot over the Blue Devils.
They erased the five point defi-
cit and tied the score at 28 at the
halftime interval.
The game was back and forth
in the third period with neither
team really gaining dominance
over the other. The Wildcats
got some key steals when they
needed them, but it didn't stop
the Devils from taking a two
point lead going into the final
period. The Devils stayed in the
game by bombing from the three
point line. They hit 9 three point-
ers that night. But guard Kyle
Kennedy was accurate from the
arc as well, sinking 4 long range
Facing elimination from their
own tournament, the Cats stepped
it up a notch and out scored the

points in a balanced attack. Ken-
nedy had 12 points, all on three
point shots, Thorne 11, Ike Park-
er 8, Strachen 7 and Tyler Thom-
as 6 points.
Saturday's consolation final
was one the Wildcats would rath-
er forget. Englewood controlled
from start to finish, shocking
BCHS with a 59-25 win. They
dominated every aspect of the
game and got 17 points from
hotshot Steve Roundtree to seal
the victory.
Wolfson routed Hamilton
County 84-48 in the fifth place
game. Mike Harris of Orange
Park was the MVP for the tour-
nament. Harris scored 30 points
in the final as the Raiders coasted
to the win.

Mary Porter field a class act


I was saddened to hear of the
death of Mary Helen Porterfield,
wife of former BCHS basketball
coach Russell Porterfield, who
coached the 1966 state champi-
onship basketball team at Baker
High. Mrs. Porterfield was a
class act, and attended the yearly
reunions of the 1966 team. She
was a well-loved and respected
Michigan lost a former All-
American with the death of Pres-
ident Gerald Ford. The president
could have played in the NFL but
turned it down to go to Yale Law
School. He later coached for the
Bulldogs. An avid golfer, Ford
was probably the most athletic
president other than Teddy Roos-
evelt, and a fanatical Michigan
football fan throughout his life.
I have been overdosing on col-
lege football all this holiday sea-
son and it's not over. As I write
this, I'm watching my fifth game
of the day Boise State versus
Oklahoma. I thought this would
be a great game and it's not dis-
I don't usually join football
pools, but my wife and son Spen-
cer did a family pool so I went
along with it. I am currently 20-
5, a lot better than I usually do.
I was 17-2 for the early bowls,
but as the bigger and more com-
petitive contests came around, I
knew I'd run into some trouble.
I tried not to pick with my
heart, and its been up and down.
Kentucky shocked me by beating
Clemson.Ibet against my beloved
FSU because they've played so
pitifully and they turned around
and spanked UCLA. Then there
was Troy State putting a whup-
ping on Rice. Oh well.
Those are just some of the
great results (well, not so great
for my bowl poll). How about
Texas Tech trailing by four
touchdowns at the half and com-

ing back to win in overtime? It
was the biggest comeback in
bowl history.
USC did the Gators a favor.
They beat Michigan, who would
have claimed a share of the na-
tional title if UF beats OSU on
Jan. 8.
Bobby Knight made history
this past week. The controver-
sial Texas Tech basketball coach
won his 880th game by defeat-
ing New Mexico to pass North
Carolina's Dean Smith as the
winningest coach.in college bas-
ketball. Earlier this season he
passed Kentucky legend Adolf
Rupp (870).
I don't particularly like Knight
as a person, but you can't fault
what he has done. One of the first
people to call and congratulate
him was Smith. You'd expect
that of Dean Smith.

Top sports

stories in'06
Just completed 2006 was
overall a good year for Wildcat
sports. Though playoffs eluded
teams in the two top sports, the
Cats were very competitive in
other sports and rebounded from
last season's disastrous football
losing streak. Here are the top
five stories.
1. Bobby Johns returned to
his old stomping grounds to take
over the head coaching reins
after Carl West resigned. Johns
inherited a team that went 0-10
the previous season, and after
a strong showing the Wildcats
finished the season with a 5-5
2. The baseball team won a
district championship with a tre-
mendous showing. Coach John
Staples' Wildcats won a very
close match in the finals to seal
the title.
3. It was a good year for Sta-
ples. Besides the district title and
a new bride, the coach led the
Wildcat golf team to a regional
bid and their best showing ever
on the links.
4. The Wildcats finished the
football season with a pair of
1000-yard rushers. Quarterback
Carlos Holton and running back
Luscious Lee both cracked the
milestone in the last game of
the season. Holton was listed
as an Honorable Mention in the
Times-Union's First Coast .All-
Star team.
5. The cross country team
landed players on the region-
al team for the first time ever.
Coach Charles Ruise's team had

a very successful run, and the
young team will only continue to
improve. Luke Kennedy was the
top finisher at the regionals
2007 should bring even more
Wildcat heroics.

14th road

fatality on

Dec. 26th

Baker County finished out
2006 with its 14th road death
just five days before the year
That's up from nine in 2005.
Joann Norman, 50, of Starke
was not wearing a seat belt
when the 1994 Mazda she was
riding in on CR 229 south of
Sanderson failed to negotiate a
curve and ran off the pavement,
striking a tree.
The one-vehicle accident
occurred December 26 just
after 4:00. It followed by four
days the death of a Salt Springs,
Fla: truck driver injured in an
accident north of Macclenny.
Trooper James Starling said
the driver of the Mazda, Rita
Ann Bay, 26, also of Starke,
sustained serious injuries. She
also was not wearing a seat belt
when her vehicle ran off the
west shoulder near Will Elledge
A second passenger identified
as Eric Charles Bay, no age
listed, of Lawtey, Fla. also was
seriously injured and taken
to Fraser Hospital. Trooper
Starling said it is not known if
he was wearing a seat belt.
Ms. Bay was flown to Shands
Jacksonville from the scene.
The trio was said to be returning
from work.

She believes

name of a youth who lives in the
area as someone she had seen
lurking around the house. She
expects to re-contact the woman,
who spoke with her the afternoon
of the fire, and turn the name over
to police. She believes the recent
harassment has been the work of
two younger white males.
Tom Elledge of Glen, the
Stanley's landlord, said they
have been trotble-free tenants
during the four years they have
rented from him.
Ms. Stanley, meanwhile, said
she marveled at the outpouring
of support from around the com-
munity in the wake of the holi-
day fire that obliterated most of
the family's belongings (see ar-
ticle, page 8).
