in robbery

at ATM

Five men were arrested after
one of them allegedly robbed
a woman of $120 at gunpoint
late on July 17 at the ATM out-
side Mercantile Bank on South
6th in Macclenny.
Jessica Hagan of Glen St.
Mary reported that a black man
wearing a black shirt pointed a
gun in her face and demanded
her wallet after she visited the
ATM about 11:00 pm. She
gave him the wallet, which
contained $120 and her check
Witness Mary Joyner of
Macclenny was standing at the
Kangaroo gas station across the
street and told police she saw
the man dash across the street
and jump into a car parked at
the station. She said the car left

A Macclenny Starbucks?

Who would've believed it

The name "Starbucks" has become synonymous
with "snobbishly trendy" in the parlance of the
times. High prices, goofy sounding words for
"small, medium and large," images of upscale
Yuppies in overpriced clothing sitting around in
overstuffed chairs with their Sunday newspaper
sipping gourmet lattes. All that stuff.

Five years for home bi

A Jacksonville defendant pled

of grand theft and burglary, and
accepted a five-year sentence in
state prison. -
Charles Ballard, 39, was
charged with the burglary of a
Mud Lake Road home on April
26 of this year. He will receive
81 days credit for time served.
The residence of Eugene
Richardson was looted of a tele-
vision, laptop computer and a
jewelry case containing a credit
card and several pieces of jew-
elry. Police were tipped off by a
Jacksonville landlord who told
them that Mr. Ballard and his
roommate Jessica King were
bragging about committing a
burglary in Baker County.
Officers said that when they
raided the home on Dellwood

Ave. in Jacksonville they found
the jewelry box. Ms. King al-
legedly confessed to acting as a
look-out for Mr. Ballard while
he went inside the home. The
jewelry had been sold at a Jack-
sonville pawn shop. According
to Ms. King, Mr. Ballard had

of Sanderson and drove them

scheduled court docket on July
23 was Karen Silguero, 27. She
pled no contest to drug traffick-

sessed a $52,000 fine.

New River interest

in engineer billings

prompts local probe

Press Staff
If you've driven through or spent any time in North Florida,
you've likely dealt with cities and counties who employ Frank Da-
rabi as an engineer.
Mr. Darabi, who.operates an office out of Gainesville, works for
both Baker County and the City of Macclenny in a variety of areas
including the old Steel Bridge landfill (now closed), county roads
and bridges and the city's sewer and water network.
Among his numerous other responsibilities, Mr. Darabi is also
the engineer for the New River Regional Landfill near Raiford in
Union County. The landfill is jointly operated by Baker, Union
and Bradford counties, an arrangement that for years has given the
three counties and area prisons an economically feasible dumping
ground. Mr. Darabi played a significant role in the establishment of
New River.
Now, however, with members of the landfill's governing board
raising questions about Mr. Darabi's fees and Baker County doing
the same, the engineer's position with New River might be in dan-
Mr. Darabi's civil engineering firm, Darabi & Associates, largely
acts as a broker between its clients and other, larger firms. Until re-
cently, he did his brokering work with Jones Edmunds, another civil
engineering firm based out of Gainesville.
But now the engineer has entered into a contract with HDR Inc.,
an Omaha, Neb.-based firm with regional offices in northeast Flori-
da. The director of New River, Darrell O'Neal, said Monday that the
severing of Mr. Darabi's relationship with Jones Edmunds came as
a surprise to him. Mr. O'Neill also said that Mr. Darabi told him he
could still work with Jones Edmunds in spite of his new relationship
with HDR. But an e-mail sent by Jones Edmunds Vice-president
Rick Ferreira to Mr. O'Neal indicated the company would not be
able to continue working with New River.
Jones Edmunds was recently contracted as'the engineering firm
in charge of running a Bradford County landfill, a job that used to
belong to Mr. Darabi. That pushed Bradford County Commissioner
Eddie Lewis to point out at the New River board meeting on Jul\
12 that Jones Edmunds had quoted him a price that was half of what
Mr. Darabi had charged.
The landfill board is comprised of elected commissioners from
the three counties.
"I just think that with us trying to save and make all the monies
we have, I just wanted to let this board know we're talking about
50 percent savings," Mr. Lewis said at the meeting. "And so I just
wanted to bring it up to the board and the other board members. I
had no idea it would be that much."
Mr. Darabi said in a phone interview Monday that the compari-
son between his contract with Bradford. and Jones Edmunds' deal
was unfair. According to him, his deal with Bradford obligated him
to control every facet of the landfill and take responsibility for any-
thing that occurred in the dump. Under his contract, Mr. Darabi said,
if a storm swept through and destroyed the landfill he would be
responsible for the additional costs. Jones Edmunds does not have
similar responsibilities.
"I've tried to lower my costs and maintain the integrity of things,"
Mr. Darabi said.
The issue with New River is one of itemization. In the 2005-
2006 fiscal year, New River paid Mr. Darabi's company $552,371.
So far this year that figure is $311,723. The engineer gets paid a
monthly retainer of $19,610, an arrangement that Mr. O'Neal says
was reached in 2002.
Mr. Darabi's monthly retainer covers mainly landfill monitoring.
That entails testing groundwater before and after it reaches the dump
to determine if the landfill's garbage
is seeping into potential drinking wa- (See page 10)

BurnsedHouse was

(From page 1) '
and five acres from the
last owners Clarence and
Wilma Jo Davis in 2005. ..
Since that time, they have
been upgrading it with ,i
some modern features,
while carefully preserv-
ing the original integrity
and appearance of the
structure and grounds.
When one enters the
house, the most eye-
catching feature is the
wedding gown, artfully .
hung at an angle, on the
wall opposite the front ,...
entrance. Framed copies
of wedding certificates
of couples married in the
house are hung with the gown. It
is hoped that over time, the col-
lection will grow as other couples
wed in the house donate copies
of their marriage licenses.
During their recent visit, the
Crawfords ceremoniously added
their license to the collection.
Afterwards, the couple sat with
the Mobleys on the front porch
to reminisce.
Ms. Crawford recounts how
she lied to her grandmother, who
was her guardian, about going
to Kingsley Lake to spend the
night with a friend. A neighbor
who lived across the road was
a seamstress and had secretly
made Ms. Crawford a wedding
"The Kingsley Lake sto-
ry explained why I'd be gone
overnight," said Ms. Crawford.
"Grandma thought I had towels
and a bathing suit in my travel
bag, when actually I was carry-
ing my wedding dress."
Mr. Crawford borrowed $15
from his father for the occa-
sion and the couple planned to
elope on Saturday night, but an
unexpected conflict prevented
the ceremony until the following
day. By that time, the secret was
out and lots of family showed up
for the marriage.
"I'll never forget what hap-
pened right before the ceremony,"
said Ms. Crawford. "Tommy's
uncle, J.B. Kirkland, sat down
on the bed by the fireplace, only
to have it collapse and dump
him on the floor. Everybody was
laughing like crazy."
Mr. Crawford recounted the
first time he ever saw his bride
to be, as a 15-year-old in a local
restaurant. The young Gayle put
her thumbs in her ears, waved
her hands and stuck her tongue,

Taking Mr. Bare to

proverbial woodshed...

His response three-pronged
Dear Editor:
I have three responses for Mr. Bare's "confusion" about how
non-Christians might feel coming before a county commission that
is overtly Christian.
First, non-Christians should be delighted to bring their petitions
before leaders who believe that fairness, honesty, truth, righteous-
ness and justice are demanded by their faith!
They should be thrilled that in Christianity we do not have the
right to treat Christians one way and non-Christians another. This
means they'll get fair judgment. They should be thankful that they
have the opportunity to go before commissioners who believe that
respect for others is commanded by the Golden Ryle taught by Je-
sus (gasp! can I even say His name anymore?).
Second, Mr. Bare's confusion is a cause of a great injustice in
our nation. With not a single thought of how the many, many Chris-
tians who come before the county commissioners might feel about
the prayers of our leaders, all he can think of is that poor person
who, not being a Christian, must endure the unfathomable tragedy
of perhaps, maybe, possibly feeling just a bit put out at having to
go before men and women who actually believe that fairness and
honesty are non-negotiable.
Apparently, Mr. Bare would rather rip the comforts out from
under the rest of us so that some poor atheist can feel more at ease.
That is upside down thinking; no wonder Mr. Bare is confused!
With all the above, you -would think there wouldn't be any is-
sues. But seeing as there are (at least for Mr. Bare), I come to my
third response:
If non-Christians feel uncomfortable about coming before
Christians, that'll just have to be too bad. For they live in a na-
tion that was founded by Christians, settled by Christians, lead by
Christians, run by Christians, died for by Christians, suffered for by
Christians, and made and built by Christians.
Certainly other faiths are represented in these categories, but the
towering, overwhelming, uncontested majority have been Chris-
And while it is stretching matters to say 'that'we are formally a
Christian nation, there can be no doubt that we were founded on
Christian values and that our Founding Fathers, whether deist or
Christian, cherished Christianity, and believed it to be the under-
stood religion of the republic.
That being said, I, for one, am tired of doing all the tolerating.
Let the upset non-Christians start doing a little of it! One atheist or
Muslim or ACLU lawyer should not have the power to intimidate a
county into taking away public prayer from football games, gradu-
ations, public events, or even school classrooms. It should be up to
the folks of that county or state.
If someone doesn't like the way we do things here, there are are
literally scores of other nations where they'll fit right in.
Very simply, toleration is a two-way street. And I'm tired of con-
tinually going south.
Aaron Scott

Column truly was a mess
Dear Editor:
Baker County has always been a Christian community, with
neighbors reaching out to others in need a community proud to
have more churches than bars.
Then someone got the idea we needed growth, so we bargained
for the Wal-Mart Distribution Center and growth came. We began
selling our children's inheritance for the fast dollar, and now our
children can barely afford to live here.
The community that prayed together and waved at each other is
fast being replaced by fast-talking "movers and shakers," and now
we have business owners (who live in Jacksonville) telling us they
want our church moved from downtown because it hurts his bar
business. Not one letter of disapproval was submitted, and now we
are being told that we should agree with a reporter that praying in
Jesus' name at county commission meeting should be stopped. We
voted in these God-fearing Christian men to pray over our county
and each other before making decisions that will affect us all.
I am calling on all Baker County citizens who love Jesus to re-
alize that Baker County is changing, and if you keep silent it will
change for the worse.
Christians in the past have been so sure they were secure in their
place that they did nothing; prayer was taken out of school and
abortion became legal. If you wait for someone else to take a stand,
I assure you that in a few years there will be no more public prayer
and we will be just like Jacksonville.
Our great nation was founded by Christians, and I for one am
tired of all the people who come here trying to change us to their
desires. Let's write letters and call Andrew Bare, and tell him we
want our county commissioners to pray. And let's congratulate
(Commissioner) Gordon Crews for being the man of integrity that
he is!
Andrew Bare: you said your column would be a mess. Well, you.
were right.
Nancy Foss, Baxter

'Hoorah' for Mr. Crews!
Dear Editor:
In last week's paper, Andrew Bare asked in an opinion piece
whether a non-Christian could get a fair hearing in front of a board
that begins meetings with a Christian prayer.
I'm on record as one who believes in that Christian God who
was mentioned. I say hoorahh for Gordon Crews" and others who
recognize a higher power. Any person who does not ask for guid-
ance from God is incapable of making decisions that affect oth-
Unfortunately, some people write opinions in the newspaper at-

tempting to sway our beliefs. Some people in this county, includ-
ing me, will not be swayed. I am glad to live in Baker County,
where people still pray, not only in meetings, but also for their

together. To substantially decrease such types of
contaminants would be to increase the use of pes-
ticides to the point that food would be unsafe for
human consumption.
Dr. Manfred Kroger, a professor of food science

at Pennsylvania State University,
BA C K /says we're being too squeamish:
"Much of our food comes from
nature, and nature is not per-
& 4H fect."
I do understand too, that crit-
ANNIGAN ters find their way into food
production facilities and it's
sometimes just unavoidable, but
an Internet photo of a mouse that was baked into
the bottom of a loaf of commercial bread left me a
bit faint for the rest of the day (I guess the bakery
could argue the oven heat killed the bacteria, rabies
and the fleas carrying bubonic plague).
And then there are all those bizarre ingredients
put into food on purpose, whose inclusion is virtu-
ally unfathomable.
I grabbed a snack pack of crackers and cqom-;
mercial seafood salad recently at the grocery store
when I didn't have time to stop for a full meal. As
I ate, I scanned the can's novel-length food label.
Two things jumped out that still have me wonder-
ing what it really was that I ate: microcrystalline
cellulose and titanium dioxide.
Okay, microcrystalline cellulose is a substance
known as an excipient. It aids the absorption of a
material not easily absorbed and is a major compo-
nent of medication. Titanium dioxide is a pigment
used in paint.and sunscreen.
Well, that's comforting. I'd been eating seafood
salad manufactured with paint pigment strong
enough to repel solar radiation, along with other
ingredients that aren't easily broken down in the
human digestive tract without the presence of an
additional foreign solvent.
If we eat foods with such unnatural additives
day in and day out over a lifetime, is it any wonder
there is a high rate of cancer?
I think I'll take my chances with the insects. I
choke at the thought, but at least they're natural.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday July 26, 2007 Page 4

His ministry: 'black light chalking

Press Staff
Vester Arnold is an evangelical artist who has
an unusual method for spreading his spiritual ,
message. A practicing artist since high school, it
wasn't until he became a Christian in 1967 and .
was later ordained as a pastor that his life fol- -- "'
lowed the path that led him to develop the use of
chalk as a medium for art and the work he would
eventually dedicate to the church.
Emmanuel Baptist Church on north Lowder
Street sponsored Mr. Arnold during its recent va-
cation Bible school week. He conducted his spe-
cial drawing presentations.over four evenings. .
Before the evening services, Mr. Arnold
worked in the near darkness of the church's sanc-
tuary, his face dimly illuminated by the purple '- '"
glow of a black light. He skillfully rendered the
main image to support the upcoming lesson, ,.
such as the apostle Paul's vision of the man from
Macedonia. :
"This is called invisible chalk," he says, draw- 2:--' ~. .

black lights. "Invisible chalk is
only discernible when illumi-
nated with black light."
Mr. Arnold, who worked as
a commercial artist for many
years, perfected the technique
of drawing with invisible chalk
after taking a seminar and then
working under Ding Tueling,
who is considered the master of
invisible chalk artists.
Invisible or fluorescent chalk
was developed in the 1930s for
commercial applications and
contains chemicals which "fluo-
resce" or glow under the near
ultra-violet spectrum emitted by
a black light. In white light, im-
ages drawn with invisible chalk
are undetectable to the human
Before each presentation,
Mr. Arnold partially prepares
the canvas, composing the most
complicated portion, such as No-
ah's Ark or the figure of Jesus.
The art is based on a scriptural
lesson given by Mr. Arnold's
wife Sheryl as part of their pre-
This is done in the interest of
time since trying to complete an
entire canvas for the audience
during the short program would
be too complicated and lengthy
a process.
After his wife gives the les-
son, he quickly finishes the
compositions's secondary fig-
ures during a ten-minute interval
as she plays the piano. Because
Mr. Arnold is so familiar with
the images he renders hundreds
of times a year, he can easily
fill in the remaining work under
white light without being able to
see the marks. People watching
from the pews see nothing but a
blank canvas as he draws.
When Mr. Arnold signals his
wife, the music stops. He steps
aside and slowly turns the dim-
mer switch which lowers the
white light and activates the
black. People in the audience are
stunned to see a figure appear-
ing in the clouds, seeming to
materialize out of nowhere.
"It is my experience that it
helps if people see a significant
image along with a message,"
said Mr. Arnold. "When I un-
derstood the power of this pro-
cess for evangelization and that
the Lord seemed to be leading
me this direction, I was able to
leave the church I pastored in
Cape Coral, Fla., and devote my
energy to it full time.".
For the last twenty years Mr.
Arnold and his wife have trav-
eled, bringing the special invis-
ible chalk presentation to ven-
ues across the country. There
have been opportunities to visit
other countries as well, such as
Canada, Germany and South
America. They now reside in
Fort Myers.
According to Mr. Arnold, it's
human nature to want to watch
someone drawing. It seems mys-
terious and folks have a tremen-
do us curiosity about it. Even
after twenty years, he is amazed
at the two questions people most
frequently ask.
"Children ask me if I'm a real
artist," he says. "Adults look at
the work and ask, 'Did you RE-
ALLY draw that?"'
Mr. Arnold views his ability
as having divine origins.
"Each of us are given talents
to express our devotion to God.
This just happens to be mine."

Charges of domestic bat-
tery will be filed against both
a Macclenny woman and her
granddaughter stemming from a
disputed spanking incident July
Kelly O'Neill, the girl's
mother, told police that she and
her mother Melinda, 53, were
attempting to discipline their
15-year-old daughter for leaving
their 6th St. home and seeing a
friend without permission. Ms.
O'Neill said she attempted to
hold her daughter against a wall
while spanking her with a belt
when the girl began to struggle.
According to Melinda
O'Neill, when her granddaugh-
ter fought back she pushed the
girl into a chair and grabbed her
by the neck in an effort to hold
her down. The 15-year-old alleg-
edly scratched her grandmother
on the arms. According to Dep-
uty Claude Hurley, there were
scratch marks on both Melinda
O'Neill and the granddaughter.
The girl told police she es-
caped through her bedroom
window after the incident. A De-
partment of Children and Fami-
lies representative told Deputy
Hurley that the girl would not
be removed from the house, but
would spend a "cooling-off pe-
riod" with an uncle. *

Hey Moma, I love you. It's been

bye, but I talk to you everyday as
time goes by and miss you more
than ever. I know you're happy

Cats wild about conditioning

Coach BobbyJohnspushes players to improve stamina in off-season

They are running at BCHS.
Running and running and then
running some more.
Coach Bobby Johns is push-
ing hard to have this years' ver-
sion of the Wildcats the best
conditioned football team ever
at BCHS. Johns has also been
working hard to get his teatn in
mid-season shape for the begin-
ning of the season and is con-
vinced that it will pay off in the
long run.
"Our motto since the start of
the summer has been 'Finish the
Game,'" said Johns. "We have
it posted all over. Whether that
means conditioning or mental
mistakes, we've got to work this
season to finish the game."
Johns believes last season the
Wildcats let some games slip
away in the fourth quarter, and is
determined that doesn't happen
this year. To that end he has had
the players working hard in the
heat and the weight room to get
them ready for the August 6 first
day of practice.
So far, it has been paying off.
Twenty-one of the Wildcat line-
men went to camp at Bethune
Cookman College and excelled.
They placed first or second in all
three divisions.
"It was full contact camp.
Some schools brought their whole
teams down, but we just brought
our lineman," said Johns.
Lee Taylor was named the
Best Lineman for the camp
and also placed first among se-
niors. Ethan Munson placed first
among sophomores and Thomas

ter. If the board agrees on a new
project, Mr. Darabi gets paid for
the cost of that.
What Mr. Lewis wanted at
the New River meeting earlier
this month, and what he said he
has repeatedly asked for, is a de-
tailed, item-by-item breakdown
of Mr. Darabi's expenses. For
his part, Mr. Darabi has repeat-
edly said that he is not under
obligation to do that with New
River. When the engineer and
New River switched to a retain-
er system in 2002, he no longer
furnished a complete run-down
of his costs. Still, Mr. Lewis and
Mr. O'Neal are curious.
"It would be interesting to see
what [Mr. Darabi's] actual costs
are," Mr. O'Neal said.
Mark Hartley and Julie
Combs, the two Baker County
commissioners who sit on the
landfill's board of directors,
were concerned enough at what
they heard on July 15 to ask
Jones Edmunds for a detailed
breakdown of its expenses on
Baker County projects. Mr. Da-
rabi, whose contract with.Baker
County requires itemization,
was paid $13,219 in the first
quarter of this year. The figure
comes from documents given to
the county by Mr. Darabi in the
aftermath of the landfill meet-
At the moment, New River's
board is simply in discussion
mode. At their next meeting the
board members will attempt to
decide whether to stick with Mr.
Darabi and HDR, or advertise
for a new engineer. That would
require a RFP, or request for
proposals. For Mr. O'Neal and
the rest of his board, the situa-
tion complicates landfill main-
tenance, as new engineers and
workers will have to be trained
for the particulars of New River.
Mr. Darabi, for his part, said he
would not interfere with the pro-
cess. But he also stressed that
the quality of an engineer's bid
is contingent on more than their
"If they want to advertise for
a new engineer, God bless them,
I won't stand in their way," he
said. "It's not like you go to
Publix and see how much they

charge versus how much Winn-
Dixie charges."

Braddy placed second among ju-
niors. Jimmy Gainey placed sec-
ond behind Taylor for seniors.
The team of Taylor, Gainey
and Brock Canaday placed first
in team competition. The Wild-
cats will next travel to Camp
Blanding for team camp in early
Coach Johns has been pleased
with the overall attendance at
the summer workouts. Of 100
players, 36 have had perfect at-
Everyone is eligible to play.
Johns has pushed for eligibility
and has but one player in sum-
mer school to remain eligible.
"I tokl Mr. [BCHS principal
David] Crawford when I came
here that eligibility throughout
the year was a big. goal for us,"
said Johns. "I didn't want kids
having to go to summer school
to stay eligible. We had six kids
who were ineligible at the start
of the spring semester and they
were all eligible by this summer.
We're real pleased with that."
Johns hopes that this year he'll
be able to-separate the varsity and
JV coaching staffs. He's brought
in Brett Dopson to coach the JV
lineman and Brett Willoughby as
JV defensive coordinator. Matt
Holman takes over the JV head
coaching job from Ron Lee, who
moves to varsity.
On the injury front, only a few
players are banged up coming out
of the: summer workouts. Trace
McCullough, a ninth-grader who
will probably play on the varsi-
ty, has a hamstring injury. Kyle

Ministers to hold

abstinence classes
A number of ministers in the
Baker County area are planning
an Abstinence and Living Godly
Conference for youths on Friday
August 18 and the following day
at the Emmanuel Church of God
in Christ and St. James Baptist
Church in Macclenny.
Among the topics to be dis-
cussed are: managing your body;
how to say no and mean it; why
you should wait; are you sexu-
ally active and others.
Speakers will be invited from
the Baker County Health Depart-
ment, the sheriff's department,
financial institutions, and mem-
bers of the sponsoring clergy
will also speak. The program
both days starts at 8:00 am. Free
meals and prizes are included.
An organizational meeting
will be held July 20 at 7:30 pm at
the Emmanuel Church on South
8th St. in Macclenny.

Colorful, meticulous lawn &garden chosen
It will surprise no one in this south Macclenny neighborhood to learn that Harold
Finley's residence was selected as Yard of the Month by the Garden Club of Baker
County. In spite of the near 100-degree heat and high humidity, the yard and garden
are still producing lots of blooms. Since 1995 when Mr. Finley moved into his home,
he has consistently kept colorful flowers gracing his spotless yard. His begonias and
red salvia lost some of their luster in the heat, but are still going strong. This year
Mr. Finley purchased marigolds from the high school for a little added color, com-
plimenting his various potted evergreens like variegated crotons and jades. If you
know of a yard or garden that merits the inri'hhv award, or if you are interested in
becoming involved with the Garden Club, contact Pat Collier at 259-6064.

In another incident, William
Tracer, 25, was arrested after he
allegedly threatened two people
with a gun at the same Kangaroo
store July 21.
Deputy Claude Hurley said
a large crowd had gathered and
several people were arguing.
Mr. Tracer had tried to pull in to
the gas pumps at the same time
as Ophellia Belford and Ro-
drick Roberts. They had begun
to argue because the latter two
did not give Mr. Tracer enough
room to park his car.
Mr. Tracer told police that he

Five-year sentence in home burglary

(From page 1)

Macclenny. Police said the two
admitted to the theft, with Mr.
Hart acting as a look-out for Mr.
Creekmore. They tried to trade
the stereo to a man in Sander-
son for crack cocaine, but were
ripped off on the exchange when
they were instead given a couple
of pills.
William Royall, 62, was sen-
tenced to two years in prison in
return for a no contest to charges
that he fraudulently represented
himself as a meat salesman in an
effort to steal money.
On December 15, 2003, Mr.

Royall approached Dr. George
Weeks at his office on West
Boulevard in Macclenny, say-
ing he was a representative for
Hickory Hill Distributor. Mr.
Royall said he was selling steak,
shrimp and lobster. The next day,
Dr. Weeks wrote him a check for
$70 worth of shrimp. Dr. Weeks
reported the incident the follow-
ing month after he failed to re-
ceive the shrimp or a refund.
Calvin Kaiser told police a
similar story; on December 15,
he wrote Mr. Royall a check for
$177.50 worth of food. The next
day, he wrote a $162.26 check.
Again, come January, he had yet

to receive his food.
Kenneth Walker, 49, pled no
contest to a charge of driving
with a suspended license and
leading police on a high-speed
chase. He was sentenced to two
years in state prison.
On December 17, 2006, Mr.
Walker led police on the chase
on CR 127 after a deputy tried to
pull him over for failing to brake
at a stop sign. He reached 98
mph in a 45 mph zone, and offi-
cers lost track of Mr. Walker on
Leon Dobson Rd. Three hours
later they received a call from
a resident who said Mr. Walker
had asked him to drive him to

Lake City.
Ohio resident John Reid, 19,
pled no contest to charges of pe-
tit theft and leading police on a
high-speed chase. He was sen-
tenced to one year in prison and
will receive 108 days credit for
time served.
On April 7 of this year, Mr.
Reid was clocked going 60 mph
in a 45 zone on George Hodges
Rd. He was weaving through
traffic and driving dangerously.
After he turned east onto 1-10,
he drove over 90 mph.
Police learned he had a war-
rant for grand theft auto from
Ohio. Also, his car matched the
description of one that had driv-
en off with $42 in gasoline from
a Baker County store.
