Man dies as truck

lands in pine tree
Baker County fire Capt. Kevin Grodi and Sgt. R.E. Davis Jr. of the Florida
Highway Patrol await the removal of the pickup truck in the background
that was wedged up in a pine tree pointing downward after its eastbound
driver left Interstate 10 early on September 25. The driver, 60-year-old
Kenneth Parrish of Selma, North Carolina became Baker County's 12th
fatality of 2009 and was pinned in the wreckage. The accident occurred
about 6:45 that morning about a mile east of the CR 229 interchange
near Sanderson. Trooper D.L. Myers of the highway patrol said the 2001
Chevrolet left the travel lanes for an unknown reason before crossing the
emergency lane and nearby shoulder. The impact uprooted a medium
size pine tree as the vehicle slammed into a second tree.

Nora and Mike Herrmann's
dog breeding kennel in Taylor
can continue operating follow-
ing a Land Planning Agency
[LPA] vote September 24, but
a nearby resident said she to
plans to appeal that decision to
the Baker County Commission.
"I have to," said Elizabeth
Barber, who lives a few lots east
and across the street from the
kennel and complained of nui-
sance noise and odor. "I have no
other choice."
The roughly 6o-dog facil-
ity north of O.C. Horne Road
on Frenda Road constitutes
two zoning violations and the
Herrmann's motor home at the
property contradicts building
The couple applied for a spe-
cial exception to rectify the zon-
ing violations, which include

operating a business in an agri-
culture zoning district and not
having the minimum 7.5 acres
required in the district.
The kennel and motor home
are located on two adjacent 3.5-
acre lots.
Regardless of whether the
agency's 3-1 vote to approve
the special exception is upheld
by the commission, the Her-
rmanns will need different
living arrangements. The LPA
board's action gave them 30
days to begin moving or start
permitting a new residence on
the property.
Absent from the five-mem-
ber board was Amy Rios. Board
member Pat Collier cast the

Arrest for

Friday. She was released to her
mother Christina Self a short
time later.
Carlos Sanchez, 24, of Kissim-
mee was the recipient of explicit
photos and video. Police said
the girl sent him a train ticket to
Jacksonville following more than
a month of correspondence. He
then took a taxi to the high school
to meet her the afternoon of Sep-
tember 16.
Mr. Sanchez had also been
sending pornographic images to
the teen, though not of himself,
and claimed he was a US Marine
recently back from Iraq, said
sheriffs investigator John Har-
"Basically everything he told
her about himself was fictitious,"
he said during a press confer-
ence for Jacksonville television
stations shortly after the teen's
arrest. "All of it was lies, pretty
much to form a relationship with
her ... He would send pictures of
very handsome guys to her that
weren't actually him."
Ms. Self was warned about the
planned encounter at the high
school by her daughter's friends
and called police before Mr. San-
chez ever stepped out of the cab.
"I want a special thanks to go
out to them," Ms. Self said out-
side the sheriffs complex while
waiting for her child's release.
"They know who they are and I
want to let them know Lil' Mama
loves them with all her heart."
Mr. Sanchez was arrested on
two felony counts obscene
communication and traveling to
engage in unlawful sexual con-
duct as well as resisting an of-
ficer by giving a false name and
contributing to the delinquency
of a minor, both misdemeanors.
He also had multiple out-
standing warrants from Osceola
County for failing to appear in
court and check fraud. He is on
probation for burglary as well.
Sheriff Dobson said Mr. San-
chez's criminal history doesn't
include sex crimes.
Ms. Self described her daugh-
ter as passionate about life, very
outgoing and understanding. She
said the teen hopes to join the Air
Force someday.
"It seems like a dream," Ms.
Self said of the episode. "We'll try
to start over and begin the heal-
ing process to put this behind

Headlines: big

surprise in Iran

Lately I've missed watching
the news because I rehearse in
the evening for Steel Magnolias.
So I must have missed some of
these headlines
when they came MY S
around for the
first time.
Maybe you THE
are in the same
boat, so it might ROBERT
be useful for me
to bring you up
on the latest news. Of course, I
only really caught the headlines,
so there is a pretty good chance
that I might not have gotten all
my facts straight.
Here's your political news:
Former Alaska governor and
vice presidential candidate Sarah
Palin has been on some sort of
speaking engagement in Hong
Kong. I hope they briefed her
that Hong Kong is in China and
they speak Chinese.
Speaking of the governor, she
is having a series of fund raising
dinners presumably to either
finance a 2012 run at the White
House or to pay off her wardrobe
bill from the last campaign. Ei-
ther way the dinner is $63,500 a
I'm not kidding. I wonder if
that includes tip and valet park-
ing? Do you think caribou and
spotted owl are on the menu?
Maybe turkey remember that
turkey video? It all makes sense
Seriously though, that's a lot
of money. That's almost as much
as it costs to eat in Cinderella's
Castle at Disney World..
Now for the world news.
The CIA has discovered the
Iranians have a secret installa-
tion for making nuclear weapons.
The disclosure sent shock waves
around the world.
They could have saved a lot of
trouble by just asking me. "Hey
Bob, do you think the Iranians
have a secret installation for
making nuclear weapons?"
"Well, yeah!"
"Where do you think it's lo-
"Hidden up in the mountains
somewhere where nobody can
find it."
"Thanks, Bob. That helps a lot.
And saves us big bucks in satel-
lite photos."
"No problem. Do you want to
ask me if North Korea has secret
installations? Albania? Peru?
Trinidad and Tobago?"
Libyan dictator Muammar
Kadhafi recently ranted and
raved for 90 minutes from the
podium at the United Nations. It
made a lot of people unhappy, es-
pecially those ambassadors hop-
ing to get home early to catch the
season premier of Gossip Girl.
Oh yeah? Well, surprise. What
idiot put him on the schedule to
begin with? Ninety minutes is
usually just getting warmed up
for him. Where was Kanye West
when we needed him?
I figured out Kadhafi's prob-
lem. Did you know that there



are over 30 correct spellings of
his name? Yep. That would con-
fuse and conflict anyone. There's
only one correct spelling of my
name. B-o-b.
DE OF But I'm confused
and conflicted
because I don't
ATTER know if people
are spelling it
3ERARD backwards or for-
So there you
are. All the news that is news.


Vows to assist the addicted

Dear Editor:
I have been incarcerated going on five years, and
I have no animosity toward anyone.
All parents need to understand they must talk to
their children about drugs and alcohol. If they don't,
the next person talking to them may be the one try-
ing to get them to do drugs. I have seen enough in
here to understand that only through education will
we ever win the battle against drugs and alcohol.
The smartest thing I ever did was humble myself
to take what is called the 500 Hour Drug Program
[RDAP]. It has opened doors of my mind that were
never opened before. One aspect of RDAP is a class
called "rational thinking." I believe I now have all
the tools to think rationally, unlike I did before.
What I want everyone in Baker County to under-
stand is I'm bringing these tools home with me for

anyone I might be able to help with their addiction
to drugs and alcohol. That is what I do now I help
people find true meaning in their lives. I teach two
RDAP classes here now.
I will devote the rest of my life to helping young
children understand that drugs and alcohol will lead
them down a dead-end road going nowhere fast.
In the end, we all have to "look at the man in the
Lastly, I apologize to my family and I ask forgive-
ness for mistakes as a mortal human being.

A lot goes into training firefighters


Kelley Lannigan
I had the opportunity recently
to spend a day with the City of
Macclenny Fire Department and
came away from the experience
with a much greater appreciation
for what firefighter-rescue per-
sonnel do on a daily basis.
If there is any idea among the
public that these guys just sit
around the fire station watching
TV all day while waiting for the
occasional call to dispatch them
to the scene of an emergency, let
me dispel that notion immedi-
I assumed firefighter train-
ing to be an involved process. I
also figured a person had to be
in pretty good physical shape.

NEWS EDITOR-Joel Addington
This newspaper is printed on recycled paper.

But as to the actual depth of
that training, the skills involved
and the intensity of the physical
demands I did not have an ac-
curate understanding.
I do now.
During the course of the day I
toured Station 2 beside the Baker
County Health Department. It's
there that equipment checks
are conducted and classroom
instruction is held, along with
the hours of rigorous hands-on
training the state requires of its
volunteer firefighters.
That afternoon, I went up in
"The Tower," a truck that holds
the main ladder. At its full exten-
sion it reaches 95 feet. The fire-
fighters stood below me watch-
ing my ascent and soon looked
like a small group of ants on the
What made the biggest im-
pression on me was dressing
in the full uniform a firefighter
wears when responding to a
structural fire. One simply can-
not appreciate the uniform until
trying to maneuver in it while
using cumbersome hand tools or
operating a huge fire hose gush-
ing water under tremendous
The fully appointed firefight-
er's uniform weighs about 65
pounds. The Turnout coat and
pants engulf you like a cocoon.
Once the helmet with its face
shield and oxygen regulator are
in place and heavy gloves protect
the hands and wrists, the fire-
fighter is covered from head to
The 65 pounds doesn't include
the heavy tools a firefighter may
need to use. I picked up a tool
called a "can opener," which
probably weighed at least 25
pounds. It was all I could do to
lift it. I probably wouldn't last
two minutes trying to use it.
All in all, you can be support-
ing close to your own body weight
when fully engaged in fighting
and subduing a fire. Add to that
the weight of an injured or un-

conscious person who may need
to be rescued and you start to get
the full picture.
What I realized is that the
fine sense of touch we depend
on to function is masked for the
firefighter. With every inch of
the body covered for protection
and the hands encased in heavy
gloves, doing anything requiring
fine dexterity is challenged. The
helmet and other equipment also
make it hard to see. Add smoke
to the equation and the situation
is even more compromised and
dangerous. What this means is
that firefighters must develop
acutely honed instincts.
That's where the element of
trust comes into play. Firefight-
ers always operate in pairs no
one goes in alone. Having com-
plete trust in your partner is the
scaffolding that supports the
entire enterprise and is the main
ingredient that propels a person
to enter a burning building with
the faith that they will come back
out again.
Ask firefighters why they do
what they do and you'll get an an-
swer that is almost always rooted
in the desire to help the public
and make a difference.
The terrorist attacks on the

World Trade Center and the af-
termath of hurricane Katrina are
what inspired Cuyler resident
Jason Fischer to become a fire-
fighter. After those two events, he
realized he had to get involved.
"I love my country and I'm
from New Orleans," he said. "So
many firefighters sacrificed their
own lives during 9/11. So many
people desperately needed help
in the aftermath of Katrina. I just
couldn't be passive any longer. I
had to get involved."



pig's ears
Dear Editor:
In response to Kelley Lanni-
gan's column a few months back
regarding pickled pig ears as
delectable fare, let me say that I
am a southern-born and -bred
girl with a long heritage of fam-
ily from Baker County and never
have I heard of humans ingesting
pig ears.
I see packages of pig ears in
the dog food aisle in quite a few
varieties. Actually, my smallest
dachshund ran in fear from the
gnarly flap of ear!
A co-worker at a hospital once
offered a sampling of pig's tail,
which was reputed to contain
delicious meat, and as I was im-
mune to sights and conversation
one is exposed to working in sur-
gery, I just could not fathom eat-
ing pig tail.
I vividly recall life at Salt
Springs as a child and the old
"Juke." There are many of us who
had the pleasure of living/visit-
ing Lake Kerr or the Salt Springs
area in general, and if you are old
enough ahemm), you remember
the activities centering around
the springs.
My family and many other
Baker County residents inhab-
ited cabins, as they were called
back then, at Salt Springs. Ev-
eryone used to frequent the icy
cold springs and in the evening,
we convened at the Juke where
we all danced and enjoyed our-
selves. A song in the jukebox was
a nickel, and the twist and the
shag were popular dances.
In the front room of the Juke
was a long counter where bottled
beer was served. I was allowed a
quick sip from the cold can but
the point of interest and ensu-
ing conversation was the big jars
that sat on the counter, filled with
liquid and some foreign objects
floating tightly together.
My Dad informed me the odd-
shaped objects were "pickled pig
feet" and some other jars held
"hot sausage." As the pig feet was
lifted from the jar and placed
before me, my preference was
certainly the cold beverage, and
I saw plenty of people drinking
from cans and no one eating pig
My Dad encouraged me to eat
the pig foot, saying, "It will make
you smart." So I ate the pig foot
and my Dad was right I cer-
tainly did become smarter after
eating the pig feet; so smart in
fact that I knew I'd been stupid
to eat any of it and smart enough
to know I'd never eat another one
My Dad had a good laugh over
that one.

crease levels of childhood obesity
in the county.
"We will be tracking children
when they enter first grade," said
Ms. Jerald. "One of the goals of
the initiative as it applies to Bak-
er County is to hopefully curb or
even prevent the documented
spike in obesity that has been
showing up by the third grade."
Ms. Jerald has been pleased
that local restaurants are inter-
ested in being part of the project
and willing to make changes if
necessary to accommodate the
project's goals. She was also en-
couraged that many already had
selections on their menus offer-
ing low and reduced fat foods
and the option of grilled items
instead of fried.
Here's what she found among
Ronie's Restaurant in Glen
St. Mary cooks vegetables from
scratch. Their vegetable plate is
one of their best selling items.
A-Muse in the Crocket Build-
ing in downtown Macclenny uses
only olive oil to prepare food.
They grill all their meat and offer
diabetic desserts.
Taylor'd BBQ has one of the
better children's meals offering
rotisserie chicken legs and vege-
tables. They try to accommodate
customers with food allergies
such as gluten intolerance and
don't use transfats in food prepa-
"The public may not be aware
of these efforts. What I encour-
aged the restaurants to do is to
really promote these options. In
other words to 'sing their own
praises' for efforts to offer health-
ier fare," said Ms. Jerald.
She added that restaurant
managers often agree that items

on the children's menu were
among the least healthy and were
willing to try to offer healthier
Ms. Jerald gave them a
lengthy list of healthier options
for children's meals including
fruit, salad, vegetables, baked
chips and frozen yogurt.
Getting the program up and
running took a lot of footwork.
Ms. Jerald credits Baker County
resident Ashley Gonzales, who
worked as an intern at the health
department last summer, with
getting everything in place.
"She got out and made the
initial contacts, helped prepare
mailings and did a large part of
the legwork to get everything off
the ground," said Ms. Jerald. "We
were lucky to have her."

"It is potentially still a nui-

The case had been continued
since July in order to obtain rec-

local health officials about proper
disposal methods for animal ex-

the kennel's remote location

Driver taunts campers

Urged him not to drive drunk

A motorist who had been
drinking and attempting to pick a
fight with a camper in the Osceo-
la National Forest was arrested
as an habitual traffic offender
and for aggravated assault with a
deadly weapon September 26.
Deputy Matt Hilliard said he
responded to a drunk driver com-
plaint near Cobb Camp in the for-
est about 5:45 pm and came up on
a rusted Ford van parked in the
middle of Forest Road 235 near
Olustee. The driver, 30-year-old
Joseph Mullins of Hilliard, was
yelling at nearby campers and
the officer detected a strong odor
of alcohol about him.
When asked why he was shout-
ing at the others, Mr. Mullins re-
plied they yelled at him first, and
according to the deputy, the sus-
pect "appeared to be agitated and
was having a difficult time being
consistent with his story."
Deputy Hilliard also noted
that three children were in the
van, two of whom were not in
safety restraints.
A computer check revealed
Mr. Mullins' license had 11 prior
Joe Kremp, one of the camp-
ers, told Deputy Hilliard he had
earlier observed Mr. Mullins and
believed he was intoxicated be-
cause of his behavior while fish-
ing and swimming with the chil-
dren in a nearby pond. When the

van became stuck in soft sand,
Mr. Kremp and others helped get
it out and advised Mr. Mullins he
should not drive.
Shortly after, the witness said
Mr. Mullins pulled up near the
campsite and began a tirade that
included threats to beat him and
others with a baseball bat.
The suspect's children were
released later to relatives upon
their father's arrest.
In other cases:
Charles Edwards, 44, of
Jacksonville was charged with
reckless driving after he steered
his 1997 Chevrolet in the wrong
lane through the school zone on
South 5th St. in Macclenny the
morning of September 22.
Deputy Chris Walker was sta-
tioned near the zone when the car
approached and drove through in
the opposite lane. He caught up
with it near Lowder St. and Mr.
Edwards said he was unaware of
the violation. He added that he
was on his way to work but didn't
know how to get there.
His errant driving caused ve-
hicles going the other way to take
evasive action, notes the deputy's
The officer said Mr. Edwards
did not smell of alcohol or appear
to be drunk, and passed field so-
briety tests.
That was not the case early
in the evening of September 25

when Deborah Revell, 46, of
Sopchoppy, FL was charged with
drunk driving after she backed
into another vehicle in the drive-
thru at the Macclenny McDon-
ald's on South 6th.
Deputy Pete Quinley said he
arrived about 6:00 following a
complaint and found the par-
tially clothed driver passed out
and sprawled with one leg over
the steering wheel and dash, and
the other partially out the driver's
side window.
Ms. Revell was not coherent
and the deputy found alcohol in
her BMW, along with two dogs
and a cooler. The suspect became
belligerent when questioned and
several times cursed at the offi-
cer before she was taken to jail.
Arrangements were made with
relatives to pick up the dogs from
the county pound.
Deputy Shawn Bishara ar-
rested two drivers of off-road
ATVs after spotting them on
Minnesota Ave. in west Mac-
clenny about 11:oo the morn-
ing of September 23. Both were
charged with driving on licenses
that had been suspended.
A computer check revealed the
license of Joshua Plummer, 19, of
Macclenny had four suspensions;
that of Phillip Givens, 24, of Glen
St. Mary had one.

Arrest after threat to kill

A Glen St. Mary man who al-
legedly threatened to kill another
man by running him down with
his pickup was arrested about
midnight on September 24 and
booked at county jail for aggra-
vated assault.
Deputy Trent Page said he
listened to recordings of Charles
Corder, 20, making the threats
against Donald Loudermilk, 42,
on several calls. The officer had
been called to Mr. Loudermilk's
residence on South Glen Ave. fol-
lowing one of the threats.
Alisha Edwards, 32, described
as Mr. Loudermilk's roommate,
had received the calls on her cell
phone. Mr. Corder also came to
the residence and knocked on a
window, again making threats.


on stolen


A Macclenny man was ar-
rested September 25 for posses-
sion of a bicycle reported stolen
from Northwood Apartments the
previous day.
Sheriffs investigator Mike
Hauge said he confronted Fred-
rick Marshall riding a bike identi-
cal to the stolen one near South
Boulevard and Quail in the west
city. Mr. Marshall said he got
the bike from a person he didn't
know and was pedaling to the
About that time, the suspect's
17-year-old brother arrived and
the investigator said he several
times warned him to quiet down
and leave the area. The youth
continued yelling and attempt-
ing to stir up a gathering crowd
of people, said the investigator.
Mr. Marshall also became
belligerent when told a criminal
complaint was going to be filed,
and he was arrested at the scene
for resisting and obstructing an
investigation. A criminal com-
plaint for disorderly conduct will
be filed against the youth.
In other theft-related reports:
Denny Andrew said two rod
and reel combinations and a .22
caliber rifle were missing from an
office at his residence off Valley
View Dr. south of Glen St. Mary.
The suspected theft occurred be-
tween August 15 and September
26, and the property was valued
at $1250.
Gregory Rhoden of Macclen-
ny told police on September 24
he was the victim of credit card
fraud. His card was used for a
$458 on-line purchase in Texas.
Alta Long of Glen St. Mary
said a credit card belonging to
Metal Fabricators of Jacksonville
and used by her late husband was
apparently used to make $1ooo
in purchases in the Jacksonville
and St. Augustine areas, mostly
at gas stations.

Describing the recordings,
Deputy Page noted, "I heard
Charles Corder state his name
and make threats to kill Donald
Loudermilk Jr. [He] stated on
multiple messages ... that he was
in his truck and going to come
over to [the residence] and run
him over with the vehicle."
While the deputy was at the
residence, the suspect cruised by
slowly in the middle of the road
in his black GMC pickup, then
drove off when he spotted the pa-
trol car. Deputy Page said he fol-
lowed the truck and noted both
that it was swerving in and out of
its lane, and it had no tag lights.
He stopped the pickup, and
said Mr. Corder became agitated
when questioned and tossed ob-
jects from the vehicle. In addition
the assault count, a third-degree
felony, he was ticketed for the
lane and tag light violations.
In other cases, a criminal
complaint was filed September
21 accusing Thomas Curry, 67,
with violating a domestic vio-
lence court order by repeatedly
telephoning ex-wife Carolyn, 52,
who now lives in Jacksonville.
Deputy Chris Walker said he
listened to several telephoned
messages from the accused

threatening to kill his ex-wife. An
acquaintance of Ms. Curry ad-
vised police of the incidents.
The complaint is a first-degree
misdemeanor. Deputy Walker
said Mr. Curry is believed to live
now in Baxley, GA.
Johanna Burnsed, 26, filed
a complaint for battery against
husband Charles, 24, alleging he
grabbed her when she attempted
to retrieve property from his ve-
hicle on September 25. The inci-
dent took place at the accused's
residence off Carl Brown Rd. in
the north county.
Deputy Tony Norman said he
noted bruising on Ms. Burnsed's
arm consistent with the allega-

Benefit beards
If you happen to notice facial
hair on the local constabulary,
it's for a good cause.
Sheriffs Office deputies have
started their annual fund raiser
by growing beards to benefit the
Hubbard House for battered
women. Each deputy pays a fee
to grow the beard or moustache.
Hubbard House is in Jack-
sonville and serves surrounding
counties including Baker.

Two reps on regional board


Baker County doesn't have a vote on the North
Florida Transportation Planning Organization
[TPO]'s board of directors, but its got two on the
organization's task force to examine the possibility
of a regional transportation authority.
County Commissioner Alex Robinson joined citi-
zen representative Sharon Padgett for the first meet-
ing of the task force the morning of September 28 at
the University of North Florida.
The Florida Legislature took many in the region
by surprise earlier this year by passing a mandate
that the Jacksonville Transportation Authority
[JTA] undertake a similar study and present rec-
ommendations on a potential framework for the
authority by February 2010.
Land Planning Agency chairman C.J. Thompson
and County Manager Joe Cone represent Baker
County on a JTA advisory panel involved in the
study. That group met for the first time September
Both Mr. Robinson and Ms. Padgett said that al-
though their charge may overlap that of JTA study
group, they'd rather be inside the process than out-

Couple arrives at party, beaten

Two are charged with aggravated battery

Police charged two Glen St. Mary men with
aggravated battery in the beating of a couple
that had been invited to a party in Macclenny
the night of September 26 by one of the al-
leged assailants.
Eric Miller, 32, told Deputy Kevin Jenkins
his nephew Kenneth Miller, 22, invited him to
the party at 711 North 5th St., and he and wife
Tina Miller, 30, were attacked when they en-
tered the residence where the younger Miller
was staying.
The victims said Robert Force Jr., 24, ini-
tially struck Mr. Miller in the face with a li-
quor bottle, then he and Kenneth Miller beat
the victim when he fell to the floor.
Mrs. Miller said she was struck repeatedly
by the nephew about the face and head when
she came to the aid of her husband.
Deputy Jenkins said he interviewed both
the couple and the accused at the emergency

room of Fraser Hospital following the lo:oo
pm incident, and all of them appeared to be
The Millers sustained abrasions and cuts
about the face and head, and Mr. Miller's nose
was broken, according to staff at the emer-
gency room.
In cases involving juveniles, a 16-year-old
female was remanded to officials at Juvenile
Justice after the latest incident of violence
against her custodial aunt south of Sander-
The aunt, age 45, called police the evening
of September 21 after the niece became vio-
lent during an argument at their residence.
The girl is accused of making threats
against the aunt and her family, and earlier
threatened the life of an 8-year-old cousin.
Deputy Robert Simpkins also charged the

teen with resisting arrest with violence both
when she was being handcuffed and again
when interviewed by a juvenile crime case
worker in Macclenny.
The state attorney's office will decide
whether to file a criminal charge of battery
against a 14-year-old Baker County High
School student for an alleged attack that took
place on the school track about midday on

The accused struck the second girl, who
then struck her head when she fell onto the
track. She also had abrasions and cuts about
the hands from breaking her fall, said Sgt.
Thomas Dyal, a campus deputy.
The second girl, who is black, told the
deputy she pushed the victim to the ground
after she called her a racial epithet and swung
at her.

Band parents create nonprofit group

When Glen St. Mary resident
Neil O'Donnell learned last year
that the Baker County Middle
School's music program budget
was cut to only $1,ooo, he knew
something needed to be done to
supplement it.
"The school's music program
serves 137 kids," he said. "A thou-
sand dollars is barely enough to
buy them a single score of sheet
music and pay for repairs on in-
He also knew that many
families simply cannot afford to
purchase instruments. Students
have no choice but to use the
county-owned instruments and
often share them.
He knew other parents were
like-minded in their desire to
help make a change. As a result,
four sets of concerned parents,
all with children who participate
in the school district's music
programs, got together to brain-
storm and discuss ideas to raise
supplemental money.
They met with Bill McClendon,
who teaches music and directs
the band at the middle school,
and his wife Summer, who is the
high school's band director. This
helped them understand that the
need for supplemental funding
exists in all the county's schools.
The parents say they aren't
blaming the school district for
lack of funds, and recognize that
arts programs usually are the first
to suffer when operating budgets
are cut. They decided to form a
corporation they named Baker
County Friends of Instrumental
Arts [BCFIA]. They began meet-
ing twice monthly to determine
strategies for fund raising.
Then came the nine-month
long process of applying for non-
profit status, which it recently
"Since we would be soliciting
for money, we wanted to do it the
right way," said BCFIA president
Steve Gaylord. "Now that we

to help familiarize the communi-
ty with their mission and to raise
some money through raffles.
Another fund-raiser has been
planned at Hagan Ace Hardware
October 17.
According to Mr. O'Donnell,
who is serving as BCFIA's vice-
president of marketing, there


are plans for a concert or even
a series of concerts to help raise
funds in the near future.

Logging tractor worth

$100K is stolen from

site; recovered in Glen

Where do you hide a stolen logging tractor?
How about in the woods on US 90 near Wildcat Dr.
That's where a county deputy located the $1oo,ooo vehicle on Sep-
tember 26, a day after it was reported stolen from a logging site off
Lewis Covin Rd. south of Macclenny.
The large vehicle belonging to B&B Timber of St. Augustine, was
apparently driven west from the site onto Southern States Nursery Rd.
either late on September 24 or early the next morning. Owner Eddie
Batten told police he and a crew locked the John Deere tractor when
they left the property about 5:00 and followed tire tracks onto Southern
States the next morning when they discovered it missing.
Mr. Batten told Deputy Matt Riegel whoever took it likely used a
key common to similar makes, and they had to have some operational
knowledge to drive it off.
The logging crew recalled seeing a suspicious vehicle in the area the
afternoon before the tractor was stolen. It was occupied by two white
males who appeared to be in their 2os, and they were in a green Chev-
rolet pickup.
Deputy Chris Walker spotted the logger in a wooded area off the
north side of US 90 and west of Wildcat Dr., about four miles from
where it was taken. There was no report of damage.
In other property crimes involving vehicles:
SA pry tool was used to enter a 1996 Toyota pickup parked off Aaron
Fish Rd. overnight September 26. Owner Cleveland Miller said $300
was taken from the glove box and about $6 in change from the con-
Various tools with a value in excess of $2000 were taken from a
vehicle belonging to Miller Electric of Jacksonville while it was parked
on East Boulevard in Macclenny between September 18-21.
James Taylor told police the missing property included five drills,
three saws, a circuit tracer and chainsaw.
A cell phone belonging to Tonya Workman was taken from her
vehicle parked in the lot at the Walmart Supercenter about 4:oo pm on
September 25.
Two power drills were removed from a tool box on a pickup truck
belonging to TimmyAnderson of Glen St. Mary. It was parked on Jona-
than St. in Macclenny between 5:00-10:30 pm on September 25.
Three days earlier, a hunting bow and accessories were taken at the
same address from a truck belonging to Jeremy Lee. The property val-
ued at $1200 was found September 26 by a neighbor in his truck, and
returned to Mr. Lee.

At the start of a new shift, fire-
fighters begin their day with a
hearty breakfast at the station or
somewhere around the city. The
large red trucks and other rescue
vehicles endemic to their line of
work are a common early morn-
ing sight at the Baker Grill on
McIver Street, a favorite spot to
grab some chow. For a few min-
utes, they can relax and chew the
fat over bacon, eggs, pancakes
and coffee.

ers can form deep bonds. Such
camaraderie inevitably includes

"I can't tell you how many
times the food has just gotten to
the table and the alarm goes off,"
said Jason Fischer, a firefighter
for the last three years. "Nobody
has taken so much as a bite. You
might be really hungry, but it
doesn't matter. We're back on the
truck in moments, mentally gear-
ing up to respond. At that point,
everyone is about the same busi-
ness," he said.
So what happens to the meal?
"The wonderful thing is that
people at the restaurants usually
box the food up for us and have
it waiting when we can return for
it. Or they will prepare it again
later at no extra charge," said
Chief Crews.

The check list
Once breakfast is done, the
team heads to Station 2 located
next to the Baker County Health
Department on Lowder Street.
It's time to run comprehensive
testing of all trucks and equip-
ment. The task is performed at
the beginning of every shift and
takes about an hour.
While engines idle, all emer-
gency lights are checked. Then
secondary lights, such as the
high-powered floods used during
a night call, are tested. A bright
band of lights in four different
colors indicate the level of water
in the looo-gallon tank. Each
light corresponds to 250 gallons.
During a fire, one glance at the
lights tells firefighters how much

The team reports back to Sta-

when all their equipment is
checked out.
If you've ever noticed that
fire trucks seem to be perpetu-
ally bright and polished, there is
a reason for that. The trucks get
lots of tender loving care through
frequent washing. Everyinch gets
scrubbed down and rinsed off.
Since washing a truck proper-
ly would take a single firefighter
too long, the guys team up for the
task. Out come the long handle
brushes, soap and the water hose.
In about 20 minutes the truck is
shiny as a bright red apple.
Newly washed, the truck
is parked in the fire station's
bay and "shore line" cables are
hooked up. The cables extend
from the ceiling and are at-
tached to portals in the trucks.
When not in service, the cables
continuously supply electricity
to the multiple battery chargers
throughout the truck's interior.
To avoid ripping the cables out of
the ceiling when the trucks exit,

gladly do it again he means it.
Because this weekend, if you're
upside down in your vehicle,

located on Main Street in
Gainesville, with the help of
Jason Dillon will help upside
down buyers get out of their
current loans and leases.
"I came in the other day with
a vehicle that was so upside
down, I thought I'd never get rid
of it," said a recent customer.
"But, good 'ol Jason helped me
get out of it, and got me into a
2007 Ford F-150 XLT with a
payment of just $197 a month,
stock number FH8310, with $0

down for 72 months at 5.9%
APR with approved credit,"
continued the happy customer.

No school Inservice day

When parents and others
pulled up to the PreK/Kindergar-
ten school in Macclenny on Sep-
tember 16, they found themselves
under the scrutiny of police look-
ing for violations of Florida's seat
belt and child restraint laws.
No tickets were given, but the
results demonstrate how some
drivers still don't get it.
According to campus deputy
Tracie Benton, who headed up
Child Passenger Safety Week
September 14-18, sheriffs de-
partment employees and a state
trooper were busy looking into
vehicles as children were dropped
off that morning. The results of
the 116 cars checked:
96 drivers had seat belts on
- 20 did not.
13 passengers age 9 and older
had safety belts on 3 did not.
Of the 177 passengers age 8
and under, 133 had on some form
of restraint 44 did not.
Of the restrained children,
only 22 were properly buckled in
- 111were not.
"We'll do this again toward
the end of the school year as a
way to impress on people the im-
portance of property restraining
children while vehicles are in mo-
tion," said Deputy Benton.
Florida law is specific on the
types of restraints required of
both adults and children [see
box], and police now can stop a
person for failure to use them. In
the past, tickets for non-use were
issued only when motorists were
stopped for other reasons.
As part of the safety week ob-
servance, members of the SADD
[Students Against Destructive
Decisions] club hung "Buckle Up"
banners at the Baker High cam-

Pursuant to an application submitted by E.I. DuPont deNemouis
& Co. Inc., to be granted a special exception in reference to the
Baker County Land Development Regulations Section
Mining in Agricultural Zoning Districts, on property located in
Sections 01, 02, 11, 12, 13, 14, 23, 24, 25, & 26 Township 3S,
Range 22, lying east and west of CR 228 south and Sections 35 &
36 Township 2S, Range 22, lying east of CR 228 south, containing
approximately 4300 acres in Baker County, FL.. The Baker
County Land Planning Agency (LPA) will hear the request at a
public hearing scheduled for Thursday, October 08, 2009 at 7:01
p.m. The public hearing will be held at the County Administration
Building, 55 North Third St., Macclenny, FL. On the date above-
mentioned, all interested parties may appear and be heard with
respect to the special exception request. The purpose of the special
exception is to allow mining to be conducted in an Agriculture
Zoning. Written comments for or against the special exception
may be sent to Baker County Planning Department, 81 North
Third St., Macclenny, FL 32063. Faxed comments may be sent to
(904)259-5057. Copies of the special exception may be inspected
by any member of the public in the Planning Department, address

pus, and a demolished vehicle was
placed in a lot facing Wildcat Dr.
on US 90 in plain view of people
in vehicles leaving the school.
Deputy Benton noted the teen-
age driver of that car was wearing
her seat belt when it struck a tree
and sustained only a broken hand
and wrist. Her front seat passen-
ger was not restrained and was
thrown to the back seat, sustain-

ing serious injuries.
"We thought it would be a good
idea to position the car right here
in light of an increasing number
of serious and fatal injuries in
Baker County involving teenag-
ers," noted Ms. Benton. "We want
to impress on them early in life
that seat belts are very important
and can make the difference, lit-
erally, between life and death."

Coach positive after 0-5 tourney

Usually losing five matches in
one weekend means a team has
some serious work to do. But
with the district schedule start-
ing to heat up, the BCHS volley-
ball team is already comfortable
playing in the heat of battle.
The Lady Wildcats swept
Baldwin 2-0, 2-0 (25-20, 25-22;
25-21, 26-24) on the road in a
district double header Septem-
ber 24.
"For some reason the games
were tight," said Head Coach
Chris Armoreda. "But a win's a
win, so we'll take it."
Armoreda was happy about
the victories but concerned with
his team's lack of enthusiasm go-
ing into a weekend tournament
at Gainesville Eastside.
"It was basically Baldwin mak-
ing inopportune errors in all the
right spots," said Armoreda. "Our
feet were reallyin cement the en-
tire time."
The girls went 0-5 last week-
end in the tournament but Ar-
moreda's confidence couldn't be
higher afterward.
"We played better over the
weekend," said Armoreda. "We
had some neck and neck games,
and with just a little more focus
we could have beaten some of the
best teams in the state."
The Lady Wildcats played
Ocala Forrest, Corner Stone
Academy, Gainesville Eastside
and Tampa Newsome in the

weekend tournament, giving the
team a look at some of the stiffest
competition in Florida.
"Each team we played had two
or three players over 5'10," said
The girls regrouped after the
weekend's tough competition to
beat Keystone 3-2 (25-21, 18-25,
20-25, 25-20, 16-14) on the road
September 29.
'That was the first time beat-
ing Keystone in a long while,"
said Armoreda. "Our girls gath-
ered their focus and energy to
win one of the biggest matches in

recent history."
BCHS hit a wall after taking
the first game of the match, but
the turning point came in the
third game when Brittney Alford
collided with Kari Harris. The
girls let the collision fire them up
and played inspired volleyball in
the final two games of the match.
"The team rallied from there,"
said Armoreda. "They became
more athletic setting each other
up. There was a big attitude
change and we became dominant
in the front court."
Armoreda hopes his girls can

ride the momentum as they host
West Nassau Thursday, October
1, in an important district match-
up. The Lady Wildcats then head
back to Keystone Friday and Sat-
urday for a tournament including
Keystone, Yulee, Nease, Bradford
and Pedro Menendez.
Nease is the defending 4A
state champion.
"I told the girls this week is a
gut check," said Armoreda. "If
you can play up to the level of
the competition you're playing
against, you stand a better chance
of succeeding."
In JV volleyball play this
past week, the girls improved
to 6-1 with victories over Trin-
ity Christian, Fernandina Beach,
Inerlachen, Union County and
Sophomores Catie Fraze and
Sephanie Collett are leading the
team with their serving ability.
The JV team hosts West Nassau
October 1 at 5:30.
"Stephanie can serve the ball
like there's no tomorrow," said
Varsity played Hilliard Sep-
tember 29, but results were not
available at press time.
In other upcoming prep ac-
tion this week, the cross coun-
try team will race at West Nas-
sau October 1 against the host,
Eagles View, Fernandina and
possibly Hilliard. The meet
begins at 4:15 pm. The team
heads to Yulee October 6.

Cats proved themselves



Last week, BCHS football
coach Bobby Johns said that
he would discover in Friday's
matchup with the Ribault Trojans
whether his team could cover a
passing team or not. He certainly
had to be happy with the result as
the Cats defeated Ribault 28-14
in a game that wasn't as close as
the score indicates.
The defensive line harassed

The only good thing that came
out of that game was I got an in-
teresting idea from watching the
Bulls. One of their players earlier
died of heat stroke, and to honor
him every game someone wears
No. to. It changes every game.
I thought what a great idea
that would be for the Wildcats.
What a wonderful way it would
be to honor Milton "Oshay"

Cats stymie pass attack


win over


Going into the first district
game of the season against the
Ribault Trojans, the Baker High
Wildcats could be certain of two
things: They would have their
hands full with Javon Bell and
Ribault's high powered pass-
ing offense, and they had to find
some big plays to counteract the
scoring threat.
Within the first five minutes
of the Cats' 28-14 win over Rib-
ault, both scenarios played out.
Bell and his big play counterpart
for BCHS, Harold Moore, had
scored long touchdowns and the
Wildcats had a 7-6 edge.
In short, before some people
had settled into their seats on
Jacksonville's north side, the
game was living up to its billing.
It was going to be
a very memorable
contest for every-
one involved.
Ribault pos-
sessed the best
passing game in the
district. They had
an accurate, mobile
quarterback in Da-
mien Fleming and
a top class receiver
in Bell. They were
capable of break-
ing big plays at any
On the red and white side of
the ball, the Wildcats had the
leading defensive unit in the dis-
trict. They held Bradford County
to negative yardage and were an
intimidating bunch. To use the
old cliche, it was the unstoppable
force versus the immovable ob-
With the exception of Bell's
touchdown, the unstoppable
force was very stoppable.
For all the danger posed by
Fleming's arm, the Wildcat
front four and linebackers didn't
give him a moment's comfort.
They harassed him every time
he dropped back to pass. They
stopped the running game cold
and they wore Bell like a cheap
The Wildcats double-covered
Bell the whole game, but he still
worried the coaching staff.
"We knew he was good, but I
didn't think he was that good,"
said the Wildcats' Head Coach
Bobby Johns. "He was better
than I thought. Everybody they
played had covered him with one
man. We put two on one and they
had to play good to stop him."
Moore, who usually takes a
few minutes to warm up, set the
tone with a 63-yard run on the
first offensive play of the game
for BCHS. It was a relief to be on
the board early, since Bell had
brought his A game.
But except for that one slip-
up, the Wildcats contained the
fleet receiver and Ribault had to
rely on the other parts of their of-
"We were going to make them
beat us with someone other than
Bell," said Johns. With their star
limited by two Wildcat defend-
ers, the Trojans couldn't manage
much offensive punch.
Cody Wheeler and Ethan
Munson continually pressured
Fleming and the Ribault coaching
staff tried its second, more mobile
quarterback Maurice Jackson.
When they did get a breakaway
run from William Union, Tym-
achee Givens stopped the drive
cold with an athletic interception
of a Jackson pass.
The Wildcats capitalized on
the miscue by marching 85 yards
down the field in a drive that not
only gave them a bigger lead, but
ate up a lot of the precious clock.

Rueben Jackson and Darvin
Ruise moved the ball, and when
they were stopped, Dakimby
Hogan provided some valuable
Jackson pushed the ball in at
the end of the drive from a yard
out and Kendrick Sampson add-
ed the extra point for a 14-6 lead.
Ruise played out of his skin at
quarterback. He had just settled
in to the position after a two-
game flirtation with Madreakus
Ford at signal caller. The veteran
controlled the offense and was
a force on defense against Rib-
"If we'd have had him at quar-
terback from the start we'd prob-
ably be undefeated," said Johns.
"I think he had the best game of
his career."
After the halftime break the
Trojans were able to move the
ball down the field, but succes-

sive motion penalties and a de-
lay of game scrapped the drive.
Hogan turned over the ball on a
fumble on the next possession,
but got it right back by picking
off Fleming. The Cats drove it in
with a second Jackson score to
go up 21-6.
They got another score late in
the fourth after sacks by Ethan
Munson and Maurice Baker shut
down yet another Ribault drive.
Moore capped the push down
field with a 29-yard scamper for
his second touchdown.
Ribault added a consolation
score late in the game to make it
Johns was elated with the win,
but cautious.
"We've still got a long way to
go, but looked more like a foot-
ball team against Ribault," he
The Cats have an unexpected
week off after the Performing
Arts Center cancelled this week's
game when their coach was ar-
rested for embezzling athletic
department funds.
The week off is a mixed bless-
ing. Johns said the team could
use a rest and it gives defender
Ray Magnifico a chance to rest a
bad ankle sprain.
"The biggest minus is that we
have just started playing better.
Hopefully we can keep the mo-

mentum," he said.
The Wildcats will try to sched-
ule a team to fill their Oct. 16
open date. Tickets to the PAC
game will be good for the 16th.

with Coach Bobby Johns
A 1-o district record!
It is a great start toward our
goal of a district championship
and going undefeated in district
play. But it
is only the
first step.
We still
have four
very good
teams to
face on our
way to the
and if we
miss a step
we could Coach Bobby Johns
we could
be sitting at
home for the post-season. With
that said, I was very pleased with
the effort of our kids this past Fri-
day night as we beat one of the up
and coming teams in the North-
east Florida area.
Everyone had been talking
about how good Ribault was and
how no one could stop Jevon
Bell. Well, Mr. Bell is as good
as advertised, but the Wildcats
found the answer to stopping him
- put two on him all night and
grind out the clock with a great
rushing attack. He only touched
the ball once and it went for a
touchdown, but we were able to
keep it away from him the rest of
the night and that was the key to
our win.
I take my hat off to the effort
of the offensive line. We did not
play perfect by any means, but we
did improve tremendously and
showed we can be a great unit.
Finally, I want to recognize
the great attendance we had at
the game. Aside from a few, it
was great to see so many Wildcat
fans travel into the heart of Jack-
sonville to support our kids. It
was a huge win but we will need
all of you to join us over the next
several weeks as we are at home
for the next four games.
Remember, our game this
week has been cancelled, but a
new game is being scheduled for
October 16 at home. We should
know who it is next week.
Until then, please join us in
Orange Park this Thursday at
7:00 for a JV game, and next
week at Memorial Stadium
against Baldwin.
Go Wildcats!
